Frequently asked questions About Teeth Whitening
Genetics: Genetics play a vital role in the shade of your teeth. The composition of the tooth’s external layer may be thicker or darker depending on individual genetics.
Dental amalgam: Silver fillings discolour teeth and cause black stains. The amalgam causes the grey/black colour of the teeth.
Tobacco products: When used regularly, tobacco products can discolour teeth over time. Dental professionals recommend not only quitting them for your teeth and gums, but also for your overall health.
Stain-causing foods and beverages: Surface stains can be caused by beverages like coffee, red wine, dark teas, and soda. Foods with more intense colours, such as lollies with artificial colours, can also cause unwanted discolouration of your natural teeth.
Age: Every part of our body wears down with time, including our teeth. As people grow older, their tooth enamel becomes discoloured.
Medications: The accumulation of chemical compounds on your teeth over time from drugs tends to stain your teeth because you can’t remove them easily with brushing or flossing alone.
Taking tetracycline when pregnant: Women taking tetracycline antibiotics during pregnancy have an increased risk of their unborn children developing discoloured teeth.
Teeth whitening performed by your dentist can give you whiter teeth in just one dental visit. Professional whitening treatments use high concentrations of peroxide-based gels. Hence, it is more effective at lightening the colour of the teeth than over-the-counter kits. In addition, heat or light may be utilised to speed and boost the whitening process.
The duration of the effects of whitening treatment will depend on the method used:
In-office professional whitening service: With proper maintenance, in-office whitening treatments can last from 6 months to 3 years. In certain circumstances, individuals may experience the effects for approximately a year.
Take-home whitening kit: At-home, dentist-supervised whitening gel trays should show results in two to three weeks. The effectiveness typically lasts for four to six months if you practise good oral hygiene.
In-chair whitening cost (professional)
On average, in-office dental treatment costs approximately $900.
Take-home teeth whitening kit cost (professional)
A take-home kit costs between $200 and $300. When necessary, gel refills can be purchased from our dental office.
This procedure is most effective for those with yellow teeth. It is less successful for those with brown, grey or purple teeth; other types of dental cosmetic treatment may be better for your requirements.
In-chair teeth whitening:
The dentist spends time carefully covering and protecting all areas of the mouth, except for the surfaces of the teeth being whitened. We can use a higher concentration of gel due to the safety of this procedure. A light is then used to accelerate the whitening process. The desired finish is achieved at the end of the appointment.
Take-home whitening using custom bleaching trays:
Moulds of your teeth are taken and bleaching trays are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly. We then give you whitening gel to take home. You then use this gel in your bleaching trays for up to 15 minutes at a time for 2 weeks to achieve the desired result.
Both of these methods are effective, however the latter takes more time than the former.
Over-the-counter whitening products such as toothpaste, strips and gels are less expensive than professional in-office bleaching or professional take-home whitening. However, they are not as effective and will not last as long.
Bleaching is a method for whitening teeth. Whitening is a term used to describe lightening the colour of teeth. The latter can be accomplished by physically removing surface stains with abrasive agents such as toothpaste or through bleaching processes that use chemicals. Through oxidation, hydrogen peroxide reacts with your teeth’s enamel and dentin, whitening and brightening them.
People who have sensitive teeth will usually experience discomfort or pain during treatments or after the procedure. The dentist must examine you to determine whether whitening is safe for your teeth, and which whitening procedure is best suited to you.
Tooth sensitivity and gum and soft tissue irritation are adverse effects caused by the product’s concentration and the length of time the teeth were exposed to the bleaching solution.
