What is Teeth Whitening?​

Brushing and flossing every day and attending regular dental check ups are key to maintaining a bright, healthy smile.

However, even with the best oral hygiene routine, you may still experience some discolouration and yellowing. If you feel your smile is lacking the brightness it used to have, professional teeth whitening can be an effective, easy way to whiten teeth.

The procedure involves the use of a special dental bleach that can produce dramatic results in just a single office visit.

Types of Teeth Whitening

There are various types of teeth whitening, including:

  • Whitening Toothpaste
    This option is convenient and the most accessible form of tooth whitening, but also provides the least noticeable results and can abrade your enamel. Whitening toothpaste works by removing surface stains using coarse abrasives. Prolonged use of whitening toothpaste can strip and weaken your enamel.
  • Over-the-counter Bleaching Products
    A variety of over-the-counter teeth whitening options exist. These products feature a lower concentration of active whitening agents compared to what a dentist uses. If you are considering the use of an over-the-counter whitening kit, consider discussing the options with your dentist.
  • In-office Bleaching
    Professional teeth whitening, or chairside bleaching, can dramatically whiten teeth in just one visit.
  • At-home Bleaching From Your Dentist
    Your dentist can also provide you with an at-home teeth whitening kit containing a custom-made tray and bleaching solution. The custom made tray ensures that minimal bleaching product is required to achieve the desired result and that your gums are as protected as they can be. This option takes longer to see results than in-office whitening, typically two weeks.

Advantages of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening performed by a dental professional is a fast, effective way to reveal a brighter, whiter, healthier-looking smile.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

How much does teeth whitening cost?

The cost of achieving a brighter smile through teeth whitening is subject to several influential factors. To understand how much it could cost for you, please feel free to call us or review our blog here: How much does teeth whitening cost?

Are there any stains professional teeth whitening can’t remove?

Although professional teeth whitening can produce impressive results in most cases, some discolourations or stains are resistant to even the strongest bleaching gels and products.

Inorganic stains do not respond well to traditional whitening. Teeth that have been darkened due to trauma or discoloured due to fluorosis also do not respond well to whitening.

Are there any side effects of teeth whitening?

Some individuals experience increased tooth sensitivity following teeth whitening. In most cases, this is temporary. Overuse of whitening products can damage the gums and tooth enamel, making it important to follow your dentist’s instructions on how frequently to whiten your teeth.

What can I eat after teeth whitening?

After teeth whitening, stick to the "White Diet" for 48 hours, which includes white and light-coloured foods and drinks. Safe options include fish, chicken, tofu, rice, bread, pasta, white cheese, yoghurt, fresh fruits and vegetables (except for dark berries and pomegranate), clear liquids, and white wine. Avoid acidic, pigmented, hot, cold, hard, chewy, and sugary foods if your teeth are sensitive. Also, avoid foods that cause stains on the teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, bright coloured fruit, red and dark sauces, slushies, and dark juices.
