What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is one of the most well-known cosmetic dentistry procedures. It involves safely bleaching your natural teeth to make them lighter in colour. It’s an easy and proven way to restore your teeth’s natural shade and get a better-looking smile.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening products contain peroxide that effectively dissolves the organic stains in the teeth. The treatment can alter the colour of your teeth, giving them a brighter glow.

The whitening action starts by penetrating the microscopic pores of the teeth’s dentin and enamel. Next, the stains that have covered the teeth are broken up to allow more light to reflect from the teeth’s surface, making them appear lighter in colour.

Teeth Whitening Treatments at Happy Dentistry

If you’re curious about how to get whiter teeth, the procedure is quite simple. However, there are many ways to accomplish your goal. Here are some popular teeth whitening treatments:

Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening or in-chair teeth whitening is the most well-known whitening procedure. After one treatment, it takes as short as an hour to see the results.

Our dentists will use a rubber shield or a protective gel on your teeth and then apply the whitening solution on them. Our dentists may also use laser light for long-lasting results.

Take-home Teeth Whitening

This treatment can be completed in the comfort of your home but under your dentist’s supervision. We will make customised thin plastic trays to fit over your teeth’s surface. The whitening gel will be laid out on these trays, and you need to wear them for a set period to see the results.

Whitening Toothpaste

Whitening toothpaste helps remove surface stains on your teeth. This product contains mild microscopic abrasives or whitening agents that can brighten your teeth by about one shade. That said, in-chair whitening may be more effective.

Whitening Strips

Whitening strips are thin and gel-based strips designed to improve your teeth’s colour. They also come in various flavours. You must use the strips twice daily for at least fourteen days to see the results.

Whitening Gels

Whitening gels are applied after brushing the teeth. It should be used at night for about two weeks to get the best results.

Teeth Whitening Mouthwash

Teeth whitening mouthwashes are antiseptic dental solutions. These products can temporarily whiten teeth and reduce bad breath. This teeth rinsing solution can also help reduce dental plaque and help prevent gum disease.

Dentist Only Products vs. Commercially Available Products

When using teeth whitening products, you can have the best results if you consult and work with your dentist.

For one, dentist only products have higher concentrations of peroxide, making them more effective at whitening compared to commercially available products. That said, peroxide is not chemically stable. It must be stored in careful conditions to assure the efficacy of the product, which is something that ordering commercially available products online and the regular shipping process cannot guarantee.

Moreover, commercially available products like whitening toothpaste will also have large amounts of abrasive that will wear down the enamel of the tooth. There is a much greater chance using a commercially available product will result in chemical burns and irritation to the soft tissues inside your mouth, such as your tongue, gums and cheeks. Such cases are common where the whitening trays are not custom fitted to your mouth or there is no oral tissue protection provided. Ultimately, it can also exacerbate existing dental health issues.

Therefore, please consult your dentist before doing any whitening procedures to see which is right for you.
