Teeth Whitening

Compare 34 clinics

Teeth whitening, also known as dental bleaching or tooth whitening is a very common cosmetic dentistry procedure. There is a small difference between whitening and bleaching – bleaching is used to whiten teeth beyond their natural colour while whitening simply restores the natural colour of the teeth. In 2010, more than 100 million teeth whitening procedures were performed in the USA alone, making it one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures in the world.

Dental bleaching can be applied through different techniques:
● Teeth whitening laser
● Bleaching gel
● Bleaching pen
● Bleaching strips
● Brushing

Dental bleaching uses hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to whiten or bleach the teeth. This special solution infiltrates the teeth’s enamel and breaks away any stains.

What causes teeth stains?

Teeth can become stained due to bacterial pigments, colour drinks such as wine, tea, coffee and coca cola. Other teeth stain causes include:
● Genetic factors
● Tetracycline-based antibacterial drugs
● Enamel hypoplasia
● Fluorosis
● Tobacco
● Poor oral hygiene
● The natural aging process
● Chlorhexidine – this substance is often used in toothpaste and mouthwash

Teeth Whitening Candidates

Dental bleaching is recommended for any individual suffering from one or more of the following:

● Generalised teeth staining
● Teeth discolouration caused by age
● Tetracycline staining
● Mild fluorosis
● Teeth staining caused by tobacco use

Am I Suitable for Teeth Whitening?

Dental bleaching may not be recommended for individuals with very large cavities or very sensitive gums. Heavy smokers or alcohol users may not benefit from teeth whitening or dental bleaching, as smoking can make the procedure useless and even dangerous due to the effect of hydrogen peroxide combined with tobacco.

Individuals with previous dental interventions such as dental crowns, veneers or bridges may have to replace them after the teeth whitening procedure.

Preparing for Teeth Whitening

Patients need to stop smoking before the teeth whitening procedure and then quit altogether.

How is Teeth Whitening Performed?

A teeth whitening procedure is a simple cosmetic dentistry treatment which can refurbish discoloured teeth. The procedure is safe and straightforward, which minimal risks involved.

The teeth whitening dentist will first apply a special solution on the patient’s gums – this is a chemical barrier that will protect the gums during the teeth whitening procedure.

The teeth whitening dentist will then proceed to apply the whitening solution on to the teeth – this is a bleach based solution, specifically designed for dental work and dental restoration.

Once the solution is applied, the teeth whitening dentist will use a combination of light and heat to activate it, effectively removing any stains from the teeth’s enamel. Once this part of the procedure is finished, the area is cleaned and repeated two more times. When the desired result is achieved, the teeth whitening dentist will remove the barrier applied on the gums and the patient may return home.

Teeth that previously underwent root canal treatment may have the teeth whitening solution injected deep into the roots for a better result.

Teeth Whitening Risks and Complications

Teeth whitening complications can include one or more of the following:

● Chemical burns from the whitening solution
● Increased teeth sensitivity to hot or cold stimuli
● Overbleaching
● Pain
● Bleachorexia – the patient can become obsessed with whitening

Complications following a teeth whitening procedure are rare and your teeth whitening dentist will provide you with instructions to help you avoid any complications after the treatment.

Teeth Whitening Side Effects

● Tooth sensitivity
● Pain

Teeth Whitening Success Rates

Teeth whitening reviews set the average dental bleaching success rate at around 74%.

Before and After Teeth Whitening

Dental bleaching is not a permanent solution. Patients need to be careful with the foods and drinks they consume after the treatment. Some patients may require another treatment in around 10-12 months. If patients tend to consume a lot of staining food such as coffee or sodas, the teeth can become coloured in as little as two months. Smoking is one of the biggest staining factors – cigarette tar deposits straight onto the teeth and it cannot be removed through simple brushing.
