Teeth Whitening Treatment

What is Teeth Whitening Treatment?

Teeth whitening is a procedure performed at the dentist’s office by your dentist or a trained clinician. It is considered to be the fastest and most effective form of teeth whitening. The process usually takes under an hour from start to finish.

What is the procedure?

The first step is to be sure your lips and gums are covered. This will keep the whitening solution off those areas and keep it only on the teeth.

Once the teeth are exposed a special hydrogen peroxide whitening gel is applied to the teeth. Then a special light developed to activate the whitening gel is aimed at your teeth.

You will need a total of 3 coats of the gel for this procedure. The gel is removed after 15 minutes and a new layer applied twice.

After the last 15 minute session a special fluoride gel is applied. This gel is used to reduce any sensitivity that the whitening gel may have caused.

What Causes Teeth Staining or Discoloration?

  • Food & Drink: Coffee, tea, dark sodas, red wine, and even a few fruits and vegetables are proven causes of discolored teeth.

  • Tobacco: Both cigarettes and chewing tobacco can contribute to discolored teeth.

  • Oral Care: Poor dental hygiene, such as inadequate brushing or flossing, can lead to tooth discoloration.

  • Trauma or Disease: Any trauma, illness, or disease that affects enamel development in children—either in the womb or while teeth are developing (under the age of 8)—can cause discolored teeth. Trauma to adult teeth can also cause discolored teeth. In addition, there are a few diseases and disease treatments that can cause discolored teeth. Chemotherapy and radiation, for example, discolor teeth.

  • Medical Treatments: Sometimes medical treatments can contribute to teeth stain, and several classes of medications including high blood pressure medications, chemotherapy, antihistamines and some antipsychotic medications can cause teeth stains.

What Are the Risks of Teeth Whitening?

The main risk is tooth sensitivity following bleaching and that varies with a given product's concentration and the amount of time it is left on the teeth. If sensitivity does occur, it usually lasts no more than one to four days.

Gums can also become irritated on contact with bleaching solutions or by an ill-fitting mouth tray. It's important to wipe off excess gel from your gums during whitening and to inform your dentist of any problems

Is teeth whitening permanent?

Teeth whitening isn't permanent. It can last from a few months to up to 3 years – it varies from person to person.
The whitening effect won't last as long if you smoke or drink red wine, tea or coffee, which can all stain your teeth.
