Teeth whitening or bleaching reverses the natural process of dicsoloration caused by smoking, colored food or beverages and medication
Teeth enamel naturally discolors over time a process that is accelerated by drinking too much coffee or tea, smoking cigarettes, or drinking red wine. Also, as we age, our enamel begins to thin, making our teeth more susceptible to stains. Certain drugs can also alter our teeth color.
Unlike natural teeth, prosthetic restorations cannot be whitened
We can only whiten natural teeth. Dental prostheses such as crowns, veneers and dentures cannot be whitened. If you wish to brighten their color you will need to have new ones made. If you have instant veneers (bonding) or white fillings on front teeth, we will repeat these treatments to match the new color of your teeth. This way your smile will be uniformely white.
Professional Teeth whitening at the dentist’s office is performed using high concentration bleaching gel
We always recommend teeth scaling and polishing ahead of starting the teeth whitening process. Scaling and polishing is typically performed one day in advance, unless of course you allready had one within the last six months. First, we isolate your gums and lips with a protective material in order to avoid any potential damage or burning. The teeth whitening gel is then applied to the surface of the teeth. After approximately 15 minutes the gel is removed and the process repeated 1 or 2 more times. The dentist finally washes off the whitening gel and removes any gum protection before evaluating the final result.
Several studies have shown professionally performed teeth whitening is very safe
We use teeth whitening gel with concentration of around 40% in hydrogen peroxide. This very effective bleaching gel can only be used by professional dentists. Several studies have shown that teeth whitening treatments are very safe. Furthermore when tooth whitening treatments are performed carefully by licensed professionals, the exposure to hydrogen peroxide is minimal. You might experience some mild tooth sensitivity or gum irritation, that will go away within the next day.
Home whitening kits using custom-fitted mouth trays to take home
We also offer prescription-strength home whitening kits. We’ll provide you with custom-fitted mouth trays and a strong gel which require about 7-10 days of treatment. Just wear your trays as directed, which is usually an hour or two in the evenings, and you’ll notice dazzling results. In some cases we recommend at home teeth whitening after concluding in the office teeth whitening. The combined treatment will further lighten and stabilize the new color.
All whitening methods can brighten teeth up to 10 shades in some cases. To keep your teeth bright for a long time, save your home whitening trays and get more bleaching gel from our dental clinic as needed. We not recommend bleaching your teeth more often that once per year.
