Tooth Whitening

Home Tooth Whitening

Perhaps the most common tooth-whitening procedure, involves two initial visits with further review appointments as necessary. At the first visit your dentist/hygienist will take impressions of your upper and/or lower jaws (depending on whether you are having one or both arches of the mouth whitened). These will be sent to a dental technician to make trays that fit your mouth. At the second visit your dentist/hygienist will ensure that the tray(s) fit comfortably and demonstrate how to dispense whitening gel into the trays. You will be given a number of the syringes containing whitening gel to take away with you, and your dentist/hygienist will give full instructions on how to wear the trays and apply the gel. It may be possible to achieve a change in the colour of your teeth by up to eight shades with home whitening.

Power Tooth Whitening

In-surgery whitening lightens the teeth using a photosensitive gel painted on to the teeth. The whole process may take as little as just over one hour. For best results your teeth and gums must be healthy and plaque free. Not all dental surgeries currently offer this particular type of treatment. Like home-whitening it may be possible to achieve a change in the colour of your teeth of up to eight shades, however, the main benefit of in-surgery whitening is the speed with which results are achieved.

Can whitening damage teeth?

Documented university studies demonstrate that whitening causes no damage to the tooth structure. It does not cause brittleness or weakening of teeth; no cavities or gum problems have been shown to form because of the bleaching. Some people can experience sensitivity to hot and cold for a day or two as a side effect. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. whiteyellow
