There are three methods for bleaching teeth. The method that will work best for you depends on the number of teeth that need to be bleached, and on how badly they are stained (or discoloured).

Your dentist may suggest:

  • Putting a special bleach on your stained teeth and using heat (or heat and light) to start the bleaching action
  • Wearing a custom-made mouthguard filled with a special bleach for part of each day
  • Brushing with a special bleach mixed in toothpaste
