Teeth Whitening

Your smile creates an immediate, subconscious, visual impact on people you meet. A bright smile is perceived as a healthy smile.

What causes Tooth Discolouration?
  • Teeth can discolour over time due to the aging process.
  • It can discolour because of poor dental hygiene and a build-up of plaque and tartar deposits.
  • Smoking and the use of tobacco, whether it is being smoked or chewed, can cause teeth to discolour.
  • Consuming coffee, tea, sodas or red wine can also cause teeth to gradually become stained.
  • Yellow dentin can be exposed when the tooth’s enamel gets worn down causing teeth to become discoloured.
  • The intake of certain medication may also cause teeth to discolour.
Types of Teeth Whitening:
There are various ways to whiten your teeth, such as over the counter teeth whitening products, in-office bleaching or a home whitening kit.
Options for teeth whitening
Two of the most common options for teeth whitening are in-office bleaching and at home bleaching.
In office teeth whitening
This procedure is called chair side bleaching and takes place at the dentist. It usually requires only one office visit.

A protective gel will be applied to your gums, followed by a bleaching agent that will be applied to your teeth. Thereafter, a special light may be used to release oxygen.

The stains on your teeth are then cleared, allowing the dentin to become whiter and resulting in a whiter smile.

The home whitening kit
The Home Whitening Kit can be used at home over a period of time.

A whitening gel is applied onto trays that are made according to the shape of your teeth. These trays are then fitted onto your teeth for 30 minutes a day for about 3 to 4 weeks.

The whitening gel gradually whitens your teeth’s enamel during this time frame.

How long will my teeth stay whiter?
Teeth whitening isn’t everlasting. It can last between six months to a few years, depending on how regularly you maintain and care for your teeth.
How can I look after my teeth once they have been whitened?
  • Cut down on foods and beverages that contain too much sugar and can stain your teeth.
  • Avoid smoking.
  • Brush and floss your teeth at least twice day.
  • Visit the dentist regularly.
