It’s common knowledge everyone longs for a bright white smile.
Our teeth are not naturally white, however many people feel that they could improve their smile with a brighter and whiter set of teeth. Whitening treatments are available in pharmacies and supermarkets.

Teeth whitening can cause tooth sensitivity due to the strong chemicals used; these can even lead to enamel loss if not managed correctly. Brushing your teeth with BioMin™ F may help protect the enamel, occlude any exposed dentine tubules and reduce any sensitivity as a result of teeth whitening.

Your teeth yellow with age. Food, beverages and smoking can also cause staining over time.
