Let your smile light up the room with the selection of our Take-Home Teeth Whitening Kit, or our In-Chair Teeth Whitening procedure.

Dental whitening is fantastic for treating any surface stains which may occur, but any underlying issues should first be addressed to avoid potential aggravation or neglect. Before your dental whitening you must be up-to-date with your dental care, such as fillings, as whitening can accelerate decay and cause sensitivity.

What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is all about showing off your whitest, brightest smile by removing stains and discolouration that build up on the enamel of the teeth.  Stains naturally build up on teeth and over time this makes them discoloured. Discolouration can also be exacerbated by activities like smoking, drinking dark coloured liquids like tea, coffee and red wine, or not taking good care of your teeth. As we get older, our teeth also tend to be more prone to discolouration.  Teeth whitening will lighten the colour of your teeth without damaging the enamel.

These days, there are a number of over the counter teeth whitening solutions available which are designed to lighten stains on your teeth but your dentist will generally provide better results if you’re after a pearly white smile.

Teeth whitening procedure

Firstly, your dentist will take a look at your teeth to ensure they’re in good condition and will often conduct a scale and clean. Teeth whitening can increase sensitivity so your dentist will confirm that you’re up to date with your dental care. Also, issues such as receding gums or cavities can impact on the success of the treatment so your dentist will need to look for any of these issues.

Once your teeth have been checked, many people choose to proceed with an in-chair option where your dentist conducts the teeth whitening at the dental practice. With an in-chair option, your dentist will apply a peroxide gel to your teeth and this gel is often activated by a light or laser.

If you’d prefer a take home option, your dentist will usually be able to provide a dentist strength teeth whitening package for you to use at home. This might be the best option for you if you tend to suffer from teeth sensitivity and don’t want to risk a stronger treatment.

Results of teeth lightening

When you choose an in-chair tooth whitening procedure, it’s generally quick and each session will usually take between 30 and 90 minutes. With more state of the art systems, it could be as quick as a few minutes. Usually two to four sessions are required for the full teeth whitening effect and your dentist will generally have finished your treatment within three to four weeks.

Depending on the level of staining and the results you want, your dentist may also take an impression of your teeth for a mouthguard so you can continue your treatment at home and this treatment at home could continue for two to four weeks.

Teeth bleaching

Teeth bleaching isn’t as scary as it sounds. It’s a safe procedure which involves the application of a peroxide based bleaching product to your teeth which will work to remove surface stains. The products used by your dentist are stronger than the over the counter products which means they give greater results in a shorter amount of time. Teeth bleaching products should never be used for longer than recommended as it can dehydrate the teeth and cause sensitivity. It’s important to remember that bleaching products won’t lighten crowns or fillings.

Longevity of teeth whitening

Unfortunately, no. No matter how thorough your teeth whitening procedure has been, stains will continue to build up over time and there is no permanent solution available to keep your natural teeth white indefinitely. However, after a high-quality teeth whitening procedure you can usually expect the results to last up to one and three years. After that time, your teeth will generally begin to slowly discolour but many people find that they don’t need to worry about a return visit to the dentist for some years.

Factors that impact on how long your teeth whitening lasts include the thickness of your enamel, the seriousness of the initial discolouration and whether you regularly consume foods or drinks which are known to stain.
