The shade of teeth might change over time or be inherently requiring brightening. Depending on the nature of the case, Teeth Whitening is a good option for people seeking brighter smiles.
The most common factors behind tooth discolouration include coloured beverages (wine and soda), tobacco, and even the natural aging.
There are several teeth whitening products that can be used to remove unwanted stains and discolouration from the teeth for a brighter, more radiant smile. The basic formats include home use products and professional (or “in-office”) bleaching.
How do we do it?
Professional teeth whitening can brighten your smile up to 8 shades in just 45 minutes and can be twice as effective as home use products.
In-office teeth whitening uses a high concentration peroxide gel to safely remove unwanted stains from the teeth without damaging the enamel. Hydrogen peroxide based whitening process is the most effective way to safely whiten teeth in the shortest duration.
The first step in a teeth whitening procedure is gums protection followed by hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening gel being applied on the surface of teeth. A special activating light is then shone over the teeth for it to start working.
We do offer take-home teeth whitening kits that comes with trays and professional grade hydrogen peroxide gel in syringe. These can also be used to maintain the in-office teeth whitening procedure.
To minimize staining we advise that you:
Brush and floss regularly
Avoid dark coloured food and drinks (or use straws)
Clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner, and
The cost of teeth whitening will vary with the number of treatments needed and products used.
