FAQ's on Conventional Dental Braces
The main difference between over-the-counter whitening kits and professionally dispensed products is in the mode of application and concentration of the whitening gels used. Professionally dispensed gels are of a higher concentration and deliver a more predictable and noticeable result. In-office whitening is the most effective, safest and fastest method. Your teeth can be whitened within 1 hour and the effects are almost immediate. Some people may prefer to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their home. In such cases, the patient can opt for take-home teeth whitening procedure whereby a prescription-strength gel kit is provided by the dentist. The gel-filled tray may be worn at home for 1-2 hours a day for 14-21 consecutive days to see whitening results. Another option, which is less expensive, is the over-the-counter whitening kit. At-home teeth whitening results are typically not as satisfactory as those achieved with in-office whitening. Many types of toothpaste come with whitening properties. Toothpaste whitening is an inexpensive but relatively ineffective whitening option.

Teeth whitening procedures are normally painless. Some people may experience a minor dull ache and temporary teeth sensitivity. It is best to avoid very hot or cold drinks for the first 24 hours if there is any tooth sensitivity. A desensitizing gel is provided in the take-home kit and this can be used to address any sensitivity post treatment.

This can vary for each patient depending on their lifestyles, e.g. smoking habits, drinking coffee, tea or red wine that can potentially stain teeth.
Teeth Whitening Aftercare: Observe Proper Oral Hygiene
After you’ve whitened your teeth, it is very important to observe them to make your perfect smile last. For the best results, try to do the following tasks as often as you can:
- Brush your teeth at least twice every day.
- Floss at least once a day to help remove any plaque that builds up over time.
- Rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash at least once every day. This too will help kill the types of bacteria that cause plaque build-up.
- Consider using a whitening toothpaste at least once or twice a week. This will act as a type of basic touch-up, allowing you to remove any surface stains that have built up over time, and it will also go a long way towards preventing discolouration.
- For the rest of the times that you brush your teeth, use regular toothpaste.
- Consider Touch-Up Treatments: Depending on the type of teeth whitening treatments that you’ve used, along with your general diet and lifestyle, the results will last accordingly. Therefore you may need to consider touch-up treatments every six months or so for possibly as long as two years — even in the case of professional treatment.
