During the initial consultation, our dentist does a thorough dental examination to ensure both your teeth and gum tissues are healthy and adequate for treatment. Existing dental problems such as tooth decay or gum disease can negatively affect the results of the teeth whitening treatment, as the procedure may cause old fillings or crowns to look darker. Hence, if you have dental issues, it is advisable to hold your teeth whitening treatment for a while.

FAQ's on Teeth Whitening

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.
No. Teeth whitening products work best on natural teeth that are completely sound with no fillings or crowns. Teeth with deep stains caused by antibiotics may see very little improvement. People with gum recession and exposed roots, worn out teeth or faulty fillings may feel sensitivity. It is advisable to consult our dentist to find out which method is best for you.
Teeth whitening is a safe procedure for pregnant of nursing mothers. There are no studies to indicate that teeth whitening pose any risks to a developing foetus. It is completely safe for new mothers to use whitening gels whilst still nursing.
Caution is generally taken when carrying out teeth whitening procedures on children as their permanent teeth may not be fully developed.
The procedure can remove tetracycline stains. However, depending on severity of the stains, it may not be possible to remove all of the stains.
You should be able to resume daily activities immediately. Our dentist will advise you to avoid food and drink that could stain your teeth for about a week and refrain from smoking.
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. Other common side effects include irritation of gingival tissues, white patches on the gum line, mouth ulcers and sore throat. If you have any concerns regarding the side effects, you should discuss them with our dentist.
Teeth whitening is an extremely safe and straightforward procedure. The most common side effect experienced is sensitivity. The intensity of sensitivity varies from patient to patient.
After your treatment, our dentist will advise you on how to maintain that new white smile. The effect of whitening can last from several months up to 3 years. 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.
