Teeth whitening process

1. Professional Scale and Polish

Professional teeth cleaning is recommended before bleaching to remove any plaque and superficial stains, this is an important step to achieve an even shade. The cleaning process itself may achieve the whiter shade you are after.

2. Assessing that your teeth are suitable

A consultation with your dentists is necessary to determine the best teeth whitening solution for you, making sure that you don’t have any limitations that may compromise your tooth whitening results such as previous teeth restorations of a different colour. Teeth restorations such as fillings and crowns cannot be bleached.

Before and after

Whitening discoloured or yellowing teeth can be achieved through in practice whitening methods or through the use of custom-made take-home bleaching trays.

In-practice laser teeth whitening

This method of teeth whitening is the quickest way to get results, and possibly the best solution for patients who have had teeth restorations. Your teeth will be 2-3 shades lighter after a 90 minute session in the chair with the dentist. Up to 4 sessions are required to maintain the effects for a longer period.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Professional teeth whitening is safe. Professional in-practice teeth bleaching and custom-made whitening trays are the safest ways to whiten your teeth.  A dentist will routinely check that your teeth are suitable for any whitening treatments before application. The whitening agents contain safe concentrations of the bleaching agent and the application ensures even coverage on the teeth. These professional methods will not result in colour variations, nerve damage or gum infections resulting from blistering or burns to the gums.

Teeth whitening should last for several years before the stains reappear. However, the length of time your teeth remain bleached depends on many lifestyle habits. Some of these habits include smoking, coffee, tea and other food and beverages that can stain your teeth. Teeth whitening kits are convenient to use for regular touch-ups. Talk to your dentist about how often you can apply the teeth whitening gel.

Non professional products can lead to adverse results that compromise your appearance or oral hygiene. Product such as baking soda can damage the enamel on your teeth and increase the risk of cavities. Check with your dentist before using any non-professional products.
