Q.

Teeth whitening

Good day doc,

I believe there is a teeth whitening procedure on the market. Some dentists ask around R3500.00. Is this recommended and is it permanent? Does medical aid cover this procedure?

your dentist can only recommend the procedure to you after an examination. it is not indicated for all patients.
not covered by medical aid and results are not permanent
