Smile Confidently With Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment used to treat tooth discolouration. As we age, our teeth will naturally darken. Tooth discolouration is also caused by the foods and drinks we consume on a daily basis. Coffee, wine, or heavily-pigmented foods and drinks are what causes our teeth to develop a yellow tinge.

Discolouration is experienced by many people which is why professional teeth whitening has become a common dental treatment that people seek.

Safe & Effective Teeth Whitening

yourThere are several over-the-counter and DIY teeth whitening methods that people can try. However, the best way to see results is by seeking teeth whitening treatment from your dentist. Other methods of whitening teeth often take longer to take effect or they can damage your enamel. Dentists use a professional-grade teeth whitening solution that can whiten your teeth by 6 to 12 shades. Based on your individual habits, a teeth whitening treatment can last anywhere between 2 years to as little as 6 months.

Choosing a Shade

Next, you and your dentist will discuss which white shades might work best for the desired look you want. When comparing shades, the absolute whitest options might not necessarily be better. These shades can be misleading compared to the end result, so trust your dentist to suggest the most natural shade that works for you.

Preparing Your Teeth

Your teeth will be cleaned and polished to remove any plaque on the surface. Your teeth will also be isolated from the rest of your mouth to keep your teeth dry for proper adherence. This will also protect your cheeks, tongue, and lips from the whitening solution. This is often done with gauze but sometimes retractors will also be used.

Getting Your Teeth Whitened

Once your teeth and mouth are prepped, the whitening solution is applied to the teeth. Typically a hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening gel is used paired with UV or LED exposure. Professional teeth whitening treatments are often completed in multiple short appointments, but this can vary depending on the individual’s wants and needs.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

How does teeth whitening work?

When coloured molecules stick to plaque, tartar, and the tooth’s surface, they cause a stain on the teeth. While dental cleanings may remove plaque and tartar, occasionally the stains reappear in the layer beneath known as the dentin . The staining molecules stuck to the teeth are removed by applying a bleaching solution that reacts with carbon from the dentin and oxygen from the air.

How long does professional teeth whitening take ?

Teeth whitening can be completed in an hour to achieve a whiter and brighter smile. It can be broken down into multiple applications to allow maximum gel concentration and light exposure. People with sensitive teeth can use a less intense power level to lessen sensitivity, and people with extremely deep stains could require several treatments.

Professional whitening uses a stronger formula that can provide you with a noticeably whiter smile in a single treatment. At home whitening kits may take up to a week to see the desired results and are more suited to a gradual transition. At Home kits can also be used to maintain professionally done teeth whitening. Results vary depending on the type and level of staining and from person-to-person

Does teeth whitening hurt?

No. While teeth whitening can cause mild sensitivity to the teeth and gums, some patients experience little to no sensitivity.  Sensitivity can be mitigated or avoided by reducing the bleaching strength.  Our dentists at Sekhon Family Dentistry are licensed professionals and will perform careful evaluation of your teeth and gums then use the right amount of intensity during the process for total comfort all through.

How many shades whiter can my teeth get?

On average, your teeth may brighten anywhere from 6 to 12 shades on the whitening shade range. However, the degree of whitening varies from client to client. The outcome largely depends on how stained the teeth were to begin with.  The easiest stains to remove are surface stains, consistently darkened teeth, and yellow or brown teeth. further whitening procedures could be required with badly stained teeth to reach the ideal shade.

How long does teeth whitening last?

Patients can extend the life of their teeth whitening by eating a nutritious diet, good dental hygiene, and scheduling routine dental cleanings.

To get the best out of your teeth whitening treatment, patients are encouraged to stay away from foods and beverages that can discolour your teeth, such as coffee, tea, soda, berries, and anything tomato based. If you do decide to consume these things, remember to clean your teeth or rinse your mouth out afterward. Last but not least, ensuring that you brush your teeth twice daily and visit the dentist every six months to stop stains from accumulating on your teeth.
