Q.

what is white enough?

Hi there regarding tooth whitening, what is the correct shade? Surely there can' t be one shade of whiteness for everyone? Some say your teeth shd not be whiter than the white of your eyes and they shd def not be snow white - otherwise you just look crazy.

How far shd tooth whitening go? I have a coffee complexion and don' t want to whiten my teeth and only look very strange afterwards.


thanks pls advise

This is purely a personal choice.
your dentist will take your natural shade prior to the whitening procedure then can gauge more or less the maximum that your teeth will whiten with the procedure. if you do not want it whitened very much he could shorten the whitening procedure
