Why have teeth whitening?
Very few of us have naturally white teeth and over time all of us will show some mild surface discolouration or staining due to food and drinks like coffee, tea and red wine or smoking. Whitening can get your smile looking its best and there are a number of treatment options for restoring a natural colour to the teeth.
How does tooth whitening work?
The principle of tooth whitening is applying the ‘whitening gel’ to the enamel. This gel is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide and as the whitening agent is broken down, the agent penetrates the enamel on the tooth surface to break down the stains, the process lightens the colour of your teeth to make them whiter.
What are the risks?
People with existing sensitivity, gum recession and exposed root surfaces, recently cracked teeth, leaking fillings, or other dental conditions may require dental treatment before teeth whitening. Fillings, veneers, crowns are not lightened by the process and the suitability of treatment requires specialist evaluation to assess the condition of the teeth. The majority will have some increased sensitivity to hot and cold over the subsequent few days. This normally settles down after 48 hours. It is recommended to avoid smoking along with food & drinks which may stain the teeth following the procedure.
