The most common causes of tooth discoloration are beverages such as coffee, soda and wine, tobacco products such as cigarettes, medicines used against certain medical conditions such as asthma and high blood pressure. In addition, poor oral hygiene and excessive fluoride exposure are among the causes of yellow teeth. There are several treatment options to consider for those who decide to invest in a whiter, brighter smile.

How Does it Work?

As you grow older, your teeth naturally darkens –but teeth staining can also be caused by smoking, the drinks and the food you eat. There are several teeth whitening options available today, but the most effective one is the dental teeth whitening treatment.

What Does a Teeth Whitening Procedure Involve?

Teeth whitening procedure takes between 30 and 90 minutes per-session to complete –of course, this depends on the technique used. In most cases, you will have to 3 sessions on different days. But this varies from one patient to the other, and it depends on the severity of the stains and desired whiteness.

We understand that every patient is different, so we carefully plan your trip from A-Z and we hook you up with an expert dentist who can customize the procedure so as to suit your preferences, goals, expectations as well as the dental clinic’s best practices. Here are some of the stages you should expect when you choose to have this procedure:  

1.     Inserting the cheek retractor

Your dentist will insert a cheek retractor into your mouth to pull the lips and cheeks back. This is not painful, and it makes it easy for your dentist to access your teeth.

2.     Applying the protection solution to gums

To protect the gums from the bleaching agent, the dentist will apply a hardening resin.

3.     Applying the bleaching gel

After the protection solution is applied, your dentist will apply the bleaching gel to your teeth. The gel will be left untouched for 15 to 30 minutes so that it settles well on all of your teeth. 

4.     Cleaning the gel from the teeth

When the dentist is satisfied that the bleaching gel has settled in well, he/she will clean the bleaching gel from your teeth. Another fresh gel will be applied and given 15 to 30 minutes to settle.

5.     Using the UV or LED light

To accelerate and enhance the whitening process, the dentist will use an ultraviolet or led light when the gel is still on your teeth.

6.     Checking up the teeth

Your dentist will check the teeth after each gel application to understand how many applications you will need. Some patients may require more than three gel applications.

7.     After the applying last gel

After applying the last gel, your dentist will remove check retractor. Your mouth will then be washed and the color difference will be measured.

What Should I Expect After the Laser Teeth Whitening Procedure?

  • After the teeth whitening procedure, expect your teeth to be sensitive in the first two days.
  • You should avoid hot and cold foods, and beverages in the first two days after the procedure.
  • You should avoid coloured soft or alcoholic beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine or cola so as to maintain the whiteness after the procedure.
  • If you want your results to last longer, you should stop smoking for good.
  • Red meat, soy sauce, chocolate and dark coloured fruits should also be avoided as they can stain the colour of your teeth.
  • You should replace your toothpaste with toothpaste that is teeth sensitive.
  • You need to continue regular oral hygiene practices on a daily basis. These include flossing and brushing.

Things You Should Do Before Teeth Whitening Procedure

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirins and any other meds associated with blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Patients advised to avoid smoking 24 hours before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So you should not take in anything alcoholic 24 hours prior surgery.
  • If you are taking meds for chronic or acute diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, you should inform your surgeon before the surgery commences.  



Is Teeth Whitening Painful?

There is no pain during the procedure once numbness takes effect. However, in rare cases, patients may feel pain or soreness after the numbness subsides. Dentists may prescribe painkillers to relieve this pain and discomfort.

Are Teeth Whitening Results Permanent?

Teeth whitening can last from a few months to up to 3 years depending on the person's eating/consumption habits and motivation for following the aftercare instructions to keep the teeth white.

Can Dental Restorations Be Whitened?

Dental crowns and porcelain veneers cannot benefit from the teeth whitening as natural teeth can.
