Internal Tooth Whitening

One of the main aesthetic challenges we face as dentists, is a dark discoloured front tooth.

This could be from remnants of the pulp tissue being left within the root canal system and then decomposing within the tooth permeating into the dentine. There can also be rupture of the blood vessels within the pulp allowing blood products to see… READ MORE

Case of the Month September 2021- E Max Veneers

Our case of the month for September 2021 was a simply stunning one using ultra minimally invasive E max veneers. Our client disliked her front teeth composite bonding which had discoloured, worn and chipped over time.
