Teeth whitening: day-glo white or keeping it real?

Somewhere along the line teeth whitening has become synonymous with whiter-than-white teeth that can look unnatural and sometimes plain weird. Let’s face it no one is born with white-out coloured teeth. These day-glo delights are now the norm in Hollywood and are becoming the overdone botox look of the dental world.
