Benefits of Teeth Whitening

The benefits of teeth whitening treatments include:

  • It enhances your look 
  • It’s a non-invasive treatment
  • It motivates you to take good care of your oral health 

Types of Treatment

There are a few main ways to whiten your teeth – a professional treatment carried out by a dentist, a self-whitening tooth kit which is provided by dentists and which people can do themselves at home, and over-the-counter treatments. 

Professional Teeth Whitening Procedures

Professional teeth whitening procedures can be done in a few different ways: 

Bleaching:

  • The dentist will check your teeth to ensure that they are in good enough condition for the treatment. 
  • A gel is applied to protect your gums, and a bleaching solution containing hydrogen peroxide is put on your teeth. 
  • A bright light is shone on your teeth which allows oxygen to be released, and stains to be lifted off the teeth. 
  • This procedure can usually be completed in one visit. 

Power Bleaching (Laser Whitening)

  • The dentist covers your gums and paints a bleaching agent on your teeth. Laser light is then shone on your teeth to activate the whitening process. 
  • This process takes about one hour and only requires one dentist visit.

Whitening Treatment with Mouth Trays

  • Your dentist will make moulds of your mouth 
  • A custom mouth tray is made, which will fit over your teeth
  • A bleaching solution is put into the mouth trays which you will wear for 15-30 minutes. 
  • The third step can be repeated at home following your dentist’s instructions.

 

Home Whitening Kit 

Your dentist can provide you with a home teeth whitening kit which will include a custom-made mouth tray with a whitening/bleaching solution. Instructions on the correct way to use the kit will be included. 

Over-The-Counter Solutions 

As well as professional dental procedures for teeth whitening, there are also many over-the-counter gels, toothpaste, strips, and whitening trays available. If you would rather choose an over-the-counter teeth whitening solution, you will have to check with your dentist beforehand to see what the best option is for your teeth.
