Teeth Whitening

One of the first things others notice about you is your smile — we can make yours look brilliant.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. Professional bleaching is the most effective method of teeth whitening. The active ingredient in whitening products is either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. There are two primary teeth whitening methods available. Vital bleaching will whiten living teeth by removing stains. Non-vital bleaching is done on teeth that are no longer alive and can lighten teeth from the inside out.

Why Whiten Your Teeth?

There are several reasons why you might want to have your teeth whitened. Everyone is different, and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people naturally have brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we age.

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment that may make you feel younger and more confident. If you want additional services to help you feel more radiant, the SKIN2 skin clinic has several rejuvenation and revitalisation services available.

Perceived Colour of Teeth

Factors Influencing The Perceived Colour of Teeth

The natural colour of teeth is usually a light greyish-yellow hue. As we age, teeth can darken somewhat, and the surface stains from tobacco use and certain foods or beverages, such as tea, coffee, red wine, and blackcurrant, can also influence the appearance of teeth. Smoking can also stain teeth due to the nicotine and tar ingredients. Additionally, some people may have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or tiny cracks in the teeth that take up stains.

Some factors alter how your teeth look without changing the actual colour of your teeth. An individual’s skin tone and makeup can influence the perceived colour of one’s teeth. Individuals with darker skin or who use darker makeup may appear to have whiter teeth, no matter what the actual colour of their teeth may be.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is an excellent way to enhance your appearance and increase your confidence. The smile that radiates from a mouth full of gleaming white teeth will light up the room. At minimum, you will probably smile more to show off your beautiful teeth, and smiling feels good.


Having whiter teeth can help you exude a youthful and attractive appearance. A bright, white smile has a way of making a person feel more beautiful.


A person with yellow or stained teeth may be hesitant to smile. But after having a whitening procedure done, their self-esteem may increase, helping them bring positive energy into the world and show off their best self.

Professional Image

A bright, white smile is attractive and may improve your chances of career success as you will be more inclined to smile. People want to work with those who carry themselves with an air of happiness, and confident individuals tend to get the best opportunities.

Oral Hygiene

Teeth whitening can remove surface stains caused by smoking, drinking coffee or tea, or eating certain foods. Removing these stains can help improve oral hygiene and give you more incentive to maintain a proper oral health routine.

Non-Invasive Procedure

Unlike some types of dental procedures, teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure that does not require cutting or drilling of the teeth. This makes it a safe and relatively painless option for most people seeking to augment their appearance.


Teeth whitening is a relatively affordable cosmetic dental procedure, especially compared to other treatments such as veneers or crowns. It can be done relatively quickly, making it an excellent option for busy professionals and business owners.


With an appropriate maintenance program, the results of a teeth whitening procedure can last for several years. This makes it an affordable option for changing one's appearance.

Overall, teeth whitening is a great way to enhance the appearance of your smile, boost your self-confidence, and improve your oral hygiene.
