About teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the colour of natural tooth enamel and brighten your smile. Having whiter teeth is one of the most pressing aesthetic concerns of our patients. As such, we offer multiple options for this type of treatment. The most popular method is using a home teeth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically.

Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate the replacement of any old fillings, crowns or similar past dental work. Replacement of any restorations will be done after whitening so they will match the newly whitened teeth.

Teeth whitening is not permanent.  A touch-up may be needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.

Why choose teeth whitening?

Reasons for teeth whitening:

  • Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
  • Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
  • Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
  • Yellow, brown stained teeth.

FAQs about teeth whitening

What does teeth whitening involve?

This type of teeth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (moulds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear plastic, trays.

How long does the treatment take?

At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening.

Will this treatment hurt?

It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped whitening.

We will also offer tips on how to minimise the chance of any sensitivity and each patient will be given an individual guide on how often to use the whitening system.

So even if you suffer from sensitivity normally, don’t worry, you can still whiten your teeth! We can create a whitening system that works for you.

How can I care for my teeth after the treatment?

You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit our dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
