PATIENTS EDUCATIONS FREQUENTLY ASK QUESTIONS

In-office teeth whitening

In-office teeth whitening works by producing a significant colour change in your teeth in short amount of time, usually within an hour. The procedure is done at the dentist’s office applying a high-concentration peroxide gel on the teeth after they have been protected with a special shield. Pro: more effective and longer-term results. Con: teeth feel sensitive for up to two weeks

Professionally Dispensed Take-Home Whitening Kits

These whitening kits are purchased from your doctor for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks depending on the product.

Pro: cheaper than a dentist procedure.

Con: Procedure takes longer

Over the counter whitening

Over the counter teeth whitening kits are store-bought and use a lower concentration gel than both in-office bleaching and take-home kits purchased from your doctor. While they are cheaper, they typically are less effective than methods that can be performed by your dentist because of the low concentration gel. Additionally, over the counter trays are not custom fit for your teeth, which can result in irritation to your gums while wearing the trays.

The most important question people ask is, what treatment is best? Professional teeth whitening treatments performed by the dentist or using an at-home whitener?

In order to answer that question, let’s take a closer look at the procedures… Peroxide based teeth whitening is determined by the concentration of peroxide in the whitener and the amount of time the whitener is in contact with the surface of the teeth. So for the teeth to whiten, they need to be exposed to an appropriate teeth whitener for an appropriate amount of time. Hence, in order to get the same degree of lightening, a teeth whitening system may either employ a low concentration whitener for a long period of time (at home teeth whitening products use this method) or a higher concentration whitener for a short period of time (professional teeth whitening treatments performed by dentists use this method). If you are using at-home teeth whitening kit, you have the bleaching materials at home and perform the treatments on your own, unsupervised. An hour of in-office treatment can produce the same results as one or two weeks of at-home tray-based whitening.

In a professional teeth whitening treatment, the whitening effect is seen immediately and is accomplished in just a few appointments (usually one) and usually the treatment costs more than the at-home teeth whitening products. Whitening professional products contain 15-50% hydrogen peroxide. At home products contain 3-10% hydrogen peroxide. This is why professional teeth whitening treatments can bleach teeth much more quickly and effectively.

The teeth whitening system that is best for you can depend on factors such as: the amount of time you have available, your temperament, and how much money you have to spend.

Most of the whitening products (such as the strips) on the market will either take much longer (3 weeks) to obtain less/similar results and some products such as the whitening toothpastes or gels are just not effective. A lot of the whitening toothpastes are very abrasive and are meant to just get rid of surface stains and not to actually bleach the teeth. In addition due to their abrasiveness they may cause tooth sensitivity in the long run.

Teeth whitening usually lasts from one to three years before darkening of the teeth is noticed. Additionally, once your teeth have been initially whitened, typically only “touch ups” are required to maintain the whiteness.

All bleaching systems whiten your teeth, but when bleaching is completed, the colour will fade about half a shade. Using the tray method in conjunction with In-Office whitening helps to maintain, stabilize and advance the desired result.

Bleaching can only be performed on clean, healthy teeth and healthy gums.

Bleaching will not whiten existing fillings and crowns. Existing work may need to be changed so as to achieve consistent colour.

Bleaching only works on enamel. Teeth which have thin enamel due to chemical or physical abrasion will whiten poorly.

Sensitive teeth are the most commonly reported side effect.

The professional teeth whitening process begins with a minor cleaning and removal of any plaque along the gum line.

  • Once this has been accomplished, its followed with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums and peroxide based gel is applied to the teeth. This gel contains a professional strength formula that ensures the laser accomplishes the maximum possible amount of teeth whitening.
  • Next, a special light is used to activate the gel. The process usually takes more than an hour for a full session of ZOOM or equivalent of 3 x 20 minutes per session or application, and whitens teeth by as many as 10 shades.
  • In extreme cases, the laser teeth whitening procedure may need to be repeated to address deep stains caused by medications such as tetracycline. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. You’ll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after procedure.

One of the major side effects of tooth whitening is that it can increase the sensitivity of your teeth so it is advisable to avoid very hot and also very cold drinks or food shortly after your treatment.

  • Even if you are one of the many people who have sensitive teeth, professional teeth whitening is still an option for a brighter smile. The tooth whitening process is usually accomplished in a single visit, reducing the need for repeated uses of the bleaching gel. This provides a great solution for people with sensitive teeth, and those who want instantaneous results.

Tooth sensitivity is a common side effect of teeth whitening. This can be true even for people who do not otherwise experience sensitive teeth.

If you already have sensitive teeth, the whitening process may exacerbate the condition. This is especially true in cases where store-bought tooth whitening kits are used. While inexpensive and convenient, store-bought tooth whitening kits do not come with customized application trays. This can allow solution seepage, create soft tissue discomfort, and increase the risks of tooth sensitivity.

These and other risks are significantly reduced when you choose to have your teeth whitened by a dentist. However, even professional tooth whitening can result in some discomfort.

Why Tooth Whitening Causes Sensitivity

The exact cause of tooth sensitivity following whitening is not known. The leading hypothesis revolves around demineralization caused by peroxide in the bleaching gel. According to this theory, enamel erosion allows some of the active ingredients to seep into the dentin, leading to increased sensitivity.

To address this issue, some professional teeth whitening products contain fluoride to strengthen enamel during the bleaching process.

Dealing with Post-Whitening Tooth Sensitivity

There is typically no cause for alarm with increased tooth sensitivity after whitening. In a majority of cases, any additional sensitivity will self-correct over the course of 24 to 48 hours. During this time, using a toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth will help. So too will avoiding hot or cold food and beverages until comfort returns.

While extremely rare, any lasting or limiting discomfort should be brought to the immediate attention of one of our experienced dentists.

Tooth whitening is among the safest and most effective cosmetic dentistry procedures available. Requiring neither tooth preparation nor a recovery period, this procedure can offer immediate results when performed in-office. We also offer take-home kits that can be used in the comfort of your own home to gradually lighten teeth over several weeks. These come with customized application trays, helping to prevent solution seepage and further reducing risks of tooth sensitivity.

Most people are potential candidates for the whitening procedure. However, there are a few exceptions: It is not advisable to undertake whitening procedures under these circumstances

  • Age and pregnancy issues. Here whitening is not available for those under 16 years of age as the nerve of the teeth is large at this stage of life. It could render the nerve more sensitive or cause irritation. Pregnant or lactating women are also not advised to use this method.
  • Sensitive teeth and allergies. Those having sensitive teeth or gums, with receding or defective repairs need to see their dentist before engaging a whitening process. Allergies to peroxide will definitely not be favoured with a bleaching product
  • Gum disease, damaged teeth, cavities, and exposed roots. People with damaged teeth or worn enamel are not advised to use any bleaching method. A bleaching agent might enter any cavity and cause an inside damage. Hence it is necessary to treat such defects before launching into a whitening session. Bleaching does not work on roots also since they do not have the enamel layer on which bleaching acts.
  • Fillings, crowns and restored portions. Dental restorations sometimes make use of colored fillings or resin based products (crowns, veneers, bridges) and these do not whiten with bleaching. So an unequal whitening pattern may appear if bleaching is applied under these conditions. It is better to proceed with whitening before attempting any restoration exercise on the teeth. Best on your individual needs, we will advise on the method of treatment applicable in such cases, and confirming whether any importance is to be given to the bleaching or restoration exercise first.
  • Those expecting dramatic happenings may be disappointed with results below their expectations. People using harmful products like tobacco and wine need to be aware that the result may not stay for longer periods if they do not avoid such products. A more balanced expectation taking into consideration one’s own lifestyle and hygiene pattern would give a more objective approach to the results’ appreciation. A good standard indication is comparison of color of your teeth should be a little whiter than that of your eyes.
  • Heavily stained teeth. A light yellowish tint will definitely disappear under bleaching; less effective results would appear on brown tinted ones where as grayish or purple stained ones may not reveal any effect. Certain blue-gray stains which, are normally caused by tetracycline take even more time to whiten and require around 6 month of intensive care at the dentist’s. Darker stains may be appropriately treated by other methods, for example: veneers, crowns, bonding.

  • Peroxide solutions have been used for many years as antiseptics in the mouth. They are also widely used for their teeth-whitening effects.
  • If tooth sensitivity develops, fluoride home care gel may be recommended for reducing sensitivity. If sensitivity persists-for more than 12 hours or is severe, please contact our office.
  • The whitening procedure can cause temporary inflammation and white spots on your gums or lips. This should resolve itself within 12 hours. If it persists. Please contact our office.
  • If you have teeth sensitivity, fillings that are breaking down, decay in your teeth, erosions of the teeth, or exposed root surfaces due to periodontal disease, the peroxide may have direct access to the affected areas. These conditions need correction prior to the whitening procedure. Please inform your dentist of such conditions prior to treatment.
  • The whitening procedure can be very effective at whitening the teeth, but will not change the colour of fillings or crown(s) already in or on your teeth. For aesthetic reasons, such fillings may need changing after the whitening procedure.
  • The whitening treatment plan has been reported not to be effective on some patients. Our office will provide our best efforts to whiten your teeth but lightening results cannot be guaranteed.

Sensitivity and some discomfort during and after the treatment may occur with some patients.

  • On rare occasions, minor tingling sensations are experienced immediately after the procedure, but always dissipate, these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a few days. Using a sensitive toothpaste for 2 weeks prior to treatment can help prevent any sensitivity.
  • Analgesics before and after the procedure will manage the discomfort. It’s strongly advised also to have the procedure few days to few weeks before any special occasions like Weddings, anniversaries or any special events or functions.

No one can really predict how much lighter your teeth will become. Every case is different. There are no guarantees as to the degree of whitening of your teeth.

  • The amount of whitening varies with the individual.
  • Additional whitening sessions and the use of ancillary whitening systems may be required to obtain desired results.
  • In some instances lightening is minimal or unapparent.
  • Typically, there is a two-shade improvement as seen on a dentist’s shade guide. The success rate depends upon the type of stain involved and your compliance. Bleaching can only provide a shift in colour from gray to a lighter shade of gray, for example. Bleaching does not lighten artificial materials such as resins, silicants, or porcelains.
  • The amount of Tooth or Teeth whitening varies from patient to patient and cannot be predicted or guaranteed.
  • But in general:
  • Yellow or brown teeth, surface stains, and uniformly darkened teeth are easier to whiten than grey or bluish teeth. Striped or spotted teeth are difficult to whiten.
  • The In-office Whitening System is a quick procedure that may or may not require additional whitening treatments in order to reach a desired lightened shade. Additional procedures or treatments could include take-home products or additional office visits.

Teeth whitening has become a popular way to prepare for weddings and other social events where people want to look their best. But because some treatments can take time to be effective, you should make sure you leave enough time before the big day.

Home whitening kits using gels can take up to two weeks to achieve results, while whitening toothpastes can take up to four weeks and generally have less dramatic results. If you have your teeth whitened professionally by your dentist (sometimes called an “in-chair” treatment), the treatment may be completed in a single appointment.

It’s best to have realistic expectations before undergoing any whitening treatment. Your dentist should be able to explain what you can probably expect.

Not all whitening treatments are equally effective on all people, and not all teeth will whiten to the same degree. Teeth whitening can change a tooth’s colour by several shades, meaning teeth that are more stained or discoloured won’t whiten to the same degree as teeth that were whiter originally.

Unfortunately, no. The longevity of your teeth whitening results will somewhat depend on how you care for your teeth after the treatment. If you frequently consumer beverages and foods that are prone to staining, your results will not last nearly as long as for those who avoid those foods and drinks. If you are a smoker, it is important to note that the use of tobacco products can create tooth discoloration and creates a higher risk for you to develop cancers of the gums, mouth, and throat.

If you do drink coffee or dark sodas or enjoy a glass of red wine in moderation, or if you love to eat dark berries, you can help prevent stains by rinsing your mouth or brushing soon after consumption. Also, make sure to keep up with your dental hygiene and professional cleanings every six months for maximum results and dental care.

Whether you elect to have your teeth lightened or not, it is recommended to brush your teeth or rinse with water as soon as possible after enjoying any staining beverages or foods. Also, be sure to follow good oral hygiene practices by brushing your teeth at least two times per day and flossing at least once daily to remove plaque.

Definitely this is not a lifetime result producing system. The answer to this question depends upon many factors such as diet, if you smoke, if you drink tea or coffee and what your oral hygiene program is like. Many patients choose to “touch-up” their teeth every 1 or 2 nights. “Touch-ups” are especially useful for patients that drink beverages that stain teeth, like coffee, tea, and colas

This is an excellent question. In-office whitening usually keeps your smile white for about 12 months. Teeth whitening with take-home products from a dental clinic usually lasts four to six months, and people will then need a touch-up. Over-the-counter (OTC) products that can be purchased from a drugstore or grocery store usually lasts for a couple of months before you need a touch-up. With any whitening treatment, the length that your white smile will last depending on your care and maintenance habits after the treatment. There is no official limit to the amount of time that you can get your teeth whitened. In most cases, this is a personal preference due to budget, desired results, and your likelihood to experience tooth sensitivity.

In general, there are three signs that you may be whitening too frequently: tooth sensitivity (in particular to cold air, beverages, or foods), inflamed or bleeding gums, and teeth that appear see-through along the edge. If you experience these symptoms and let them go untreated, it can lead to nerve damage in your teeth, thinning of tooth enamel, or burning of your gums. If the damage gets too severe, we may not have the ability to reverse the damage is yet another reason why in-office is typically recommended, as a trained dentist can be looking for warning signs and can provide you with suggestions on the best way to maintain your smile, and protect the longevity of your teeth and gums.

What makes Sapphire Teeth Whitening unique compared with other In-office Teeth Whitening system?

Also known as LUMIBRITE In office whitening, Sapphire teeth whitening is unique, and is ideal for patients who prefer a more holistic approach because this treatment does not include the use of UV light to activate whitening agents. The creators of the Professional Sapphire Whitening System have engineered a unique mix of active ingredients to ensure that sensitivity is minimized while teeth whitening effects are maximized. In addition to whitening components, the Sapphire gel also contains minerals and fluoride, allowing teeth to remain healthy and strong. Also included in the whitening gel is a desensitizing agent, which decreases the risk of sensitive teeth following the whitening procedure. If you have sensitive teeth, or just want as painless a process as possible, the Sapphire Teeth Whitening System is right for you. Sapphire is much easier on teeth than other in-office treatments.

The Sapphire System stands out as a remarkably fast and effective teeth whitening solution. It has proven to whiten teeth by up to 7 shades in 30 minutes.

The Sapphire professional chair side treatment

Before the teeth can be bleached, surface plaque, debris, and calculus need to be removed by way of prophylaxis (teeth cleaning). If signs of gum inflammation and decay are present, these will need to be managed by the dentist before the Sapphire whitening gel is applied. Usually, the dentist will photograph the teeth prior to applying the bleaching gel, so before-and-after comparisons can be made.

The Sapphire Professional Chair side treatment contains 25% hydrogen peroxide. The whitening gel is applied to the teeth for either 30 minutes or 60 minutes, depending on severity of staining. Though results vary for each patient, Sapphire whitening gel lightens teeth by approximately 7-8 shade in 30 minutes and 12 shades in 60 minutes. Sapphire whitening is chemically activated, so no heat, lasers or lamps are required.

Sapphire Teeth Whitening is a fast and simple procedure, and should take no more than 30 minutes to an hour. Your dentist will perform a preliminary dental exam, to make sure that the treatment will be beneficial for you. You will be given protective eye gear to wear, to shield your eyes during the procedure. Your gums will also be protected, to prevent exposure to the bleaching gel and plasma light. During the treatment, you can continue to relax by taking a nap, watching TV, or listening to music.

Unlike other whitening treatments that only use bleaching chemicals, Sapphire Whitening is able to produce brighter results in a shorter amount of time by combining light therapy with advanced chemistry. The brightening effect is amplified when the Plasma Arc Light is applied to the whitening gel, which triggers a chemical reaction that lightens the tooth almost immediately.

Discomfort after the procedure is usually minimal or nonexistent, though some patients may experience enhanced tooth sensitivity to the cold. These temporary symptoms should last between 1 to 3 days, and can be relieved by over the counter medication. Though Sapphire Whitening is overwhelmingly safe for the vast majority of patients, it is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, children younger than 13 years of age, and patients taking light sensitive medication. Results can be maintained by following proper dental hygiene and brushing occasionally with Sapphire take-home whitening gel.

The complete teeth whitening procedure takes just over an hour. The teeth whitening begins with a preparation period followed by 45 minutes of whitening. A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual Sapphire Teeth Whitening session.

The Sapphire Whitening Process

Treatment begins by protecting the lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed. A hydrogen peroxide-based gel is then applied. The Sapphire procedure uses a light bleaching unit that has been designed to filter out infrared emissions. This feature helps to insure that the teeth being treated don’t become over-heated, which is important for your comfort. The whitener is usually applied to the teeth in two 30-minute applications. Upper and lower teeth are treated at the same time, and the total time including pre- and post-treatment is somewhere around 90 minutes.

While these systems can significantly whiten your teeth, they will not prevent future stains from occurring. To maximize the longevity of the results, we suggest clients follow up with post-whitening habits, including a touch-up 12-16 months after the first session, daily flossing, and brushing teeth twice a day with whitening toothpaste.

The peroxide ingredient in most teeth whitening products is what actually bleaches the enamel and makes your teeth whiter. The strength of the whitening treatment typically depends on the strength of the peroxide contained in the whitening product. The current percentages of peroxide in teeth whitening products are 10, 16 and 22 percent. The higher the percentage of peroxide, the higher the sensitivity and shorter wearing time.

The bleaching gel is usually hydrogen or carbamide peroxide that breaks down into oxygen molecules. The concentration of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide in the gel is not as strong as that used in power or laser bleaching procedures. No strong light source or laser is needed to activate the bleaching agent. Instead, it is contact with something organic, in this case the teeth, that causes the gel to release oxygen. These molecules go into the tiny pores of the enamel and dentin, and break up the stains that block out the light. As the stains are broken into smaller and smaller pieces, more light passes through the teeth and makes them look lighter. Stains that are accumulated over time that are yellow to slightly brown produce the best results. Teeth that are dark brown to blue-gray are the most difficult to bleach because the stain is deeply embedded into the tooth’s structure. These types of stains are usually caused by medications taken during the development of the teeth such as tetracycline, and can take a minimum of three weeks to see results, and as much as six months for complete results.

Depending on the bleaching gel used and the length of time it is worn, results can be seen within an hour, overnight or within three to four days. Complete results can be achieved in as little as a week or as much as several months depending on the source of the stain and the ability of the teeth or tooth to be bleached. The whitening procedure may last for up to three years — even longer in some cases, depending on personal habits. To brighten the color back up, a simple process of bleaching for one or two nights with a single syringe is usually sufficient.

It is not advisable to undertake whitening procedures under these circumstances

  • Age and pregnancy issues. Here whitening is not available for those under 16 years of age as the nerve of the teeth is large at this stage of life. It could render the nerve more sensitive or cause irritation. Pregnant or lactating women are also not advised to use this method.
  • Sensitive teeth and allergies. Those having sensitive teeth or gums, with receding or defective repairs need to see their dentist before engaging a whitening process. Allergies to peroxide will definitely not be favoured with a bleaching product
  • Gum disease, damaged teeth, cavities, and exposed roots. People with damaged teeth or worn enamel are not advised to use any bleaching method. A bleaching agent might enter any cavity and cause an inside damage. Hence it is necessary to treat such defects before launching into a whitening session. Bleaching does not work on roots also since they do not have the enamel layer on which bleaching acts.
  • Fillings, crowns and restored portions. Dental restorations sometimes make use of colored fillings or resin based products (crowns, veneers, bridges) and these do not whiten with bleaching. So an unequal whitening pattern may appear if bleaching is applied under these conditions. It is better to proceed with whitening before attempting any restoration exercise on the teeth. Best on your individual needs, we will advise on the method of treatment applicable in such cases, and confirming whether any importance is to be given to the bleaching or restoration exercise first.
  • Those expecting dramatic happenings may be disappointed with results below their expectations. People using harmful products like tobacco and wine need to be aware that the result may not stay for longer periods if they do not avoid such products. A more balanced expectation taking into consideration one’s own lifestyle and hygiene pattern would give a more objective approach to the results’ appreciation. A good standard indication is comparison of color of your teeth should be a little whiter than that of your eyes.
  • Heavily stained teeth. A light yellowish tint will definitely disappear under bleaching; less effective results would appear on brown tinted ones where as grayish or purple stained ones may not reveal any effect. Certain blue-gray stains which, are normally caused by tetracycline take even more time to whiten and require around 6 month of intensive care at the dentist’s. Darker stains may be appropriately treated by other methods, for example: veneers, crowns, bonding.

Just about anyone is candidate for bleaching. In general, the best candidates for tooth bleaching are:

  • Mature enough to fully understand the procedure
  • Knowledgeable about the procedure
  • Wanting to improve their appearance and/or comfort
  • Realistic in their expectations
  • Note, people with dark yellow or yellow-brown teeth tend to bleach better than people with grey or bluish -grey teeth. Multi-coloured teeth, especially if stained is due to tetracycline, do not bleach very well. In addition, teeth with many fillings, cavities, chips etc are usually best treated by bonding, porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns.

Bleaching, like any other treatments, has some inherent risk and limitations. These are seldom serious enough to discourage you from having your teeth whitened.

In addition, there are variables, such as type of discoloration that affects your teeth, the degree to which you follow instructions, the overall condition of your teeth, etc that can affect the outcome of treatment.

  • Sensitivity in the teeth or some kind of irritation of the gums or other tissues of the mouth. Sensitivity is noticed at the beginning of bleaching process whereas irritation of soft tissues mainly come from wrong fitting of trays rather that from the bleaching agent itself. These effects disappear a couple of days after the treatment ends. This sensitivity is usually mild if your teeth are not normally sensitive
  • You can reduce an sensitivity using the following methods:
  • Do not use the tray for long periods. Shorten the use period if you encounter sensitivity problems.
  • Stop the whitening process for some days and let your teeth adapt itself with the whitening system.
  • See your dentist for a product with high-fluoride content. It will restore the mineral level of your teeth if applied to the tray for around 4 minutes before applying the bleaching agent.
  • Use toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth to brush. They normally contain potassium nitrate, which will relieve your nerve endings.
  • However, if your teeth are abnormally sensitive, bleaching may make your teeth much more sensitive for an extended period of time. Under these circumstances, you may choose to delay bleaching until we are able to complete desensitization procedures.

The amount of discomfort experienced varies from person to person, and depends on the method used. Most adults usually experience little if any discomfort, however, the discomfort should subside within 24 hours. If needed, an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory may help. If the discomfort lasts for more than 2 – 3 days, consult your dentist for more options.

  • Decreasing the sensitivity may be as easy as placing a gel fluoride, under your dentist’s instruction, in your bleaching tray for an hour or so. Other materials may be used to address the sensitivity you may experience. Check with your dentist for the best options for your paticular needs. You should discuss your goals, budget, and pain tolerance with your dentist in order to help him/her determine the procedure, or combination of procedures, that will produce the best results for you. If your teeth are sensitive after bleaching, a mild analgesic will usually be effective to make you more comfortable until your teeth return to normal.
  • GUM IRRITATION: Temporary inflammation of your gums can be caused by bleaching. This is the result of very small amounts of bleach leaking over the tray. A burning sensation in your gums may also occur. This is a minor problem and will resolve by itself in a few days. Irritation can also result from using the bleaching tray too many hours when you first start bleaching or using the bleaching tray too many hours in a row without a break: It may be necessary to reduce the number of hours you are wearing the bleaching tray or stop using it for a short time to resolve these gum problems.
  • SORE THROAT: If you overload the bleaching tray with home bleach, the excess can go down your throat and cause soreness. This soreness will also resolve in several days, assuming you spit out the excess bleach instead of swallowing it.
  • LEAKING FILLINGS OR CAVITIES: Most bleaching is indicated for the outside of the teeth (unless you already had a root canal. However, if you have any fillings that are leaking and allow the bleach to get into the inside of the teeth, damage to the nerves could result. In this case the filling needs to be redone prior to the bleaching. In addition, open cavities can also allow bleach to reach the nerves of the teeth. They should also be filled before bleaching.
  • CERVICAL ABRASION/EROSION: These conditions affect the roots of the teeth when gums recede, these are grooves, notches or depressions where the teeth meet the gums that look darker than the rest of the teeth. They look darker because there is no enamel in these areas. Even if these areas-are-not-sensitive, bleach can be potcntially penetrate the teeth and damage the nerves. Those areas should not be bleached, but should be filled after the bleaching is completed.
  • ROOT RESORPTION: This is condition where the root of the tooth starts to dissolved, either from the inside or outside. Although the cause of the resorption has been determined, studies have shown that its incidence is higher in teeth that have had a root canal and are bleached.
  • EFFECT ON FILLINGS: Even though open cavities should be filled or badly leaking filling should be refilled prior to bleaching can cause tooth coloured filling to become softer and make them more susceptible to staining. Therefore, you should be prepared to have any fillings in you front teeth replaced after bleaching. In addition, since bleaching will normally lighten teeth, but not fillings, you may need to have your fillings replaced anyway, so that they will match your newly whitened teeth.
  • TAKE NOTE: Tooth colored fillings, crowns, bridges and veneers will not lighten when your teeth are bleached.You’re ResponsibilitiesWEARING YOUR BLEACHING TRAY: It will only be effective if you conscientiously wear the bleaching tray for the prescribed number of hours per day.
  • COMMUNICATION: If you experience any severe discomfort or other problems, contact us immediately.
  • FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTIONS of the Bleaching gel provided.
  • It’s a good idea to have a dental cleaning prior to having your teeth whitened to remove surface stains.

LEVEL OF LIGHTENING. There is no totally reliable way to predict how lightening of teeth will reach. With home bleaching, 2-4 weeks of using the bleaching tray daily for 2-8 hours will give you much lighter teeth. Additional bleaching may provide slightly more bleaching affect but increases side-effect may occur. We do not recommend home bleaching for any longer than four weeks.

After any bleaching treatment, patients should avoid foods that stain, such as tobacco and red wine for about a week. Keeping teeth clean with flossing and brushing can maintain whiteness. Tooth bleaching lasts, on average, about 1-3 years. If you are not a regular tobacco user, and do not eat many foods that are known to stain teeth, bleaching may last even longer.

The following should be consumed in moderation after whitening:

  • Dark sodas
  • Coffee
  • Red wines

Aside from avoiding red wine, coffee, and smoking, there are a few additional tooth-staining items to be aware of. First, be aware of certain medications. Experts have found that certain medicines, like some antihistamines, include side effects like tooth darkening. Another thing to watch out for is trauma. When your teeth or gums sustain an injury, it can darken the underlying enamel. This causes the color of your teeth to darken as well. Lastly, make sure not to neglect your teeth. Although white teeth are aesthetically beautiful, it is important to prioritize brushing and flossing. Taking proper care of your teeth will help fight off small stains and keep your smile sparkling.

In-Office Bleaching — In-office teeth whitening offers excellent results. This procedure is performed in the dental office and can be done very quickly, usually in a little over an hour. In-office bleaching is expensive, but the time that you save by having immediate results can make this option appealing.

  • In addition to laser, power and home bleaching, there are over-the-counter home bleaching kits available in pharmacies and supermarkets. While these products are growing in popularity, some dentists do not recommend using them because of the increased risks. They are not as effective, and can be more damaging to the gum tissue and enamel. Teeth whitening toothpastes can make your teeth appear a little lighter by removing stains, but they do not actually bleach your teeth. Teeth whitening kits from the dentist produce faster results because they contain a stronger peroxide bleaching agent than those whitening kits purchased over the counter. A dentist-supervised system is backed by many safety tests and provides the patient with assurance if questions or problems arise.
  • Patients interested in whitening their teeth should consult a dentist before taking on any form of treatment whatsoever. A consultation with an experienced dentist will help you understand the benefits and risks associated with each of the options.

We all want to get the most out of our dental treatment. With the anxiety that so many of us feel when sitting in the dental chair, we want to keep that time brief, and the results long-lasting. Cosmetic investments should make you feel like you have a truly new smile – not like you have a grin you need to constantly tend to in order to keep it.

With that in mind, it’s time to talk effective teeth whitening. Far and away the most popular cosmetic treatment, teeth whitening leads to smiles that really stand out. Less exciting than the bright results are the steps you need to take in order to keep your teeth on point. After months of whitening touch-ups, doesn’t permanent bleaching sound pretty intriguing?

It’s not an impossibility. If you’re interested in giving your white smile longer life, read on for some tips

How Teeth Whitening Works

We want you actually understand what’s going on when a bleaching agent is applied to your teeth – this will help you make sure the effects last. It all starts with staining compounds. These substances are contained within dark foods and liquids, and tobacco. When you expose your teeth to red wine, coffee, or cola, the drinks deposit stains in your porous enamel. The outermost layer of your teeth ends up accumulating these stains, leading to an overall yellowed smile as well as smaller stained patches.

Most whitening agents contain hydrogen peroxide, which reacts with oxygen to bring about a chemical reaction. This reaction busts apart the staining compounds, allowing them to harmlessly dissipate – and leave a brighter smile behind.

While whitening produces immediate changes, they aren’t going to last forever. Your enamel remains porous, and the foods and drinks you consume deposit stains in your teeth. Fight back with anti-staining habits to keep your smile stunning:

  • Floss regularly – Your toothbrush can’t reach every nook and cranny of your mouth. Bringing floss into the equation will clean additional spots, and help keep them stain-free.
  • Schedule cleanings every 6 months – Professional cleanings remove superficial stains, and help keep your teeth healthy.
  • Use a straw – When you’re drinking dark liquids, try to use a straw as you sip. This will keep the beverages from washing over your teeth, and help protect them from unnecessary staining.
  • Rinse often – Follow a cup or coffee or a glass of wine with some water. This will keep your teeth clean, improve your oral health, and even benefit your entire body. Water’s just the best!

Are you planning to get porcelain veneers or crowns? Realize that they are designed to match the color of your teeth. If you want lighter teeth, you should whiten your teeth before getting veneers or crowns so this dental work can be crafted to reflect the brighter shade of your smile. This is the best way to go about whitening with veneers.

The Wait between Whitening and Dental Work

After you’ve whitened your teeth, the tooth needs a chance to return to its healthy state and the color needs time to set. If you want to get crowns or porcelain veneers following one of these whitening treatments, you must wait a little time to let the tooth fully stabilize. This is the only way to ensure that your crowns or veneers will perfectly match the new shade of your smile. When you want to schedule whitening with veneers or crowns, wait about two weeks after your whitening treatment to begin your other dental work.

The short answer is “no.”

Drop those whitening strips! If you have dental implants, crowns, veneers, or dentures, you need to know the right way to keep them white.

Patients often assume that their dental prosthetics have the same characteristics as real teeth. While this is often true as far as biting and chewing are concerned, there are important differences between natural teeth and prosthetics, notably in terms of how they respond to whitening.

Traditional whitening treatments do not work on porcelain or most bonding materials, making it effectively impossible to whiten veneers, dentures, crowns, or implants once they are in your mouth.

Therefore, before you get implants, veneers, or crowns, it is important to discuss their effects on appearance with your dentist. By understanding what makes prosthetic teeth unique, you can continue to have a beautiful and functional smile.
