Bleaching your teeth – for a beautiful white smile!

Everybody would prefer a beautiful white smile. A mouth full of yellow or dark teeth is less atractive then a mouth full of white teeth. Your lifestyle and eating habbits could lead to losing the white color of your teeth. Drinking coffee, tea or other nutrition could lead to discoleration of your teeth. Fillings or any cavities will then become more visible.


If that is the case bleaching your teeth is a good option. Your teeth will become a few shades lighter and will get there beautiful natural white color back. 

We offer the following options voor bleaching your teeth

How does bleaching work in our practice? To start with, we make an appointment in which we make an impression of your teeth (only bleaching above or only below is also possible). The impressions will be sent to our dental technician where the whitening bits are made. A week later the bits are back in our practice and you come by for a second appointment. Ding this appointment, your teeth will be cleaned or only polished and you will receive instructions about bleaching your teeth. Then you can get started at home and whiten your teeth until you’ve reached the desired result. On average, whitening takes 4-6 days(1 or 2 times a day, 30-40 minutes) and two weeks at the latest.
