What you need to know about teeth whitening
Is teeth whitening Safe?
Yes. Under the supervision of your dentist, whitening your teeth is completely safe. The special whitening gel uses carbamide peroxide as the primary ingredient to brighten your smile and is readily used by millions of people worldwide.
Expect results quickly
You can expect results quickly. However, to obtain the optimum natural whiteness of your teeth, we recommend that you use the home kits every day for 2 weeks.
How does teeth whitening work?
Firstly, we take an impression of your teeth so that custom-made bleaching trays can be made. A special whitening gel is then placed within these comfortable trays which fit closely over your teeth. As the carbamide peroxide in the gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentine of your teeth to give a bright, whitening effect by bleaching out discolouration. The structure of your teeth is not changed, they are simply made whiter.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects are extremely unlikely, although a small number of people can occasionally experience increased sensitivity to heat or cold during teeth whitening. But this is temporary, and can usually be treated with ibuprofen or another pain relief product. Usually, this sensitivity disappears within 48 hours of the whitening process. It is best to avoid very hot or cold drinks within 48 hours of your whitening treatment.
How long does whitening last?
The duration that your teeth stay whiter does depend largely upon you. Take care to practice good oral hygiene and brush normally, especially after consuming staining foods or beverages. Your results could last for years. However, if you use coffee, tobacco and red wine on a regular basis, you may need periodic top up treatments.
