Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure which can lighten the colour of teeth. This procedure is safe when completed by a Dentist. As we age, we find that tea, coffee, nicotine, red wine and cola can darken the teeth. The thinning of the enamel which comes with age can also cause the teeth to appear ‘yellow’. These are the types of stains that respond well to whitening.
At MEFD, we offer in-chair, instant whitening . This treatment is quick and convenient for those people who are always on the go and do not necessarily have the time to whiten their teeth at home using individually made trays.

To get the best result for your teeth, a consultation with a dental professional is recommended, so that you don't waste your time and money. The consultation only takes 30 minutes, during which an option can be suggested that will give you a fantastic smile!
At Home Whitening
This involves taking impressions of your teeth which are then used to develop custom made trays for you to wear with the whitening solution. The results can be seen over a 2-3 week period.
