Frequently Asked Questions

Teeth whitening is a sought-after cosmetic dental procedure designed to enhance the brightness and whiteness of your teeth. Administered by dental professionals, it involves the application of a whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide, a key bleaching component.

The treatment focuses on removing surface stains from your tooth enamel, leaving you with a dazzling smile.

Initial Consultation and Examination

Prior to your teeth whitening appointment, our dentist will evaluate your dental health during an initial consultation. This is to ensure that you’re a good fit for the procedure and to identify any existing issues like gum disease or tooth decay that need to be treated first. 

Preparation of Teeth

During your scheduled visit, a thorough cleaning of your teeth is performed to eliminate plaque or any residual particles that could hinder the whitening treatment. This step maximises the impact of the hydrogen peroxide found in the whitening gel on your tooth enamel. 

Application of Whitening Gel

After cleaning, the whitening gel is applied to your front teeth. This gel has hydrogen peroxide as its active bleaching component. To safeguard your gums and soft tissues, a protective barrier is applied so that the gel directly affects only the enamel of your teeth.

Activation of Whitening Gel

In our teeth whitening procedure, we employ a specialised light to activate the hydrogen peroxide gel. This light helps the gel penetrate your tooth enamel more effectively, allowing for better results in less time.

Monitoring the Whitening Process

Throughout the procedure, our dental professional will carefully monitor the progress of the whitening process. The gel may be reapplied or activated multiple times during the appointment, depending on the degree of whitening required.

Post-Whitening Care and Guidelines

After the procedure is complete, our dentist will remove the whitening gel and the protective barrier from your gums. You’ll be provided with guidelines on how to maintain your brighter and whiter teeth. Often, patients are advised to avoid foods and drinks like red wine, coffee, and tea, which can stain the teeth and compromise the whitening results.

The Final Result

At the end of the procedure, you will notice an immediate difference in your teeth’s colour. The whitening process can lighten your teeth by several shades, giving you a dazzling smile that can last for a long time when cared for properly.

At-home whitening products often contain a lower concentration of carbamide peroxide compared to the hydrogen peroxide used in professional treatments. While these home options may provide some level of improvement, the results are usually not as dramatic or long-lasting as what you would achieve with professional teeth whitening. Additionally, without the expertise of a dental professional, there’s a risk of uneven whitening or potential damage to your gums. For those seeking significant and enduring results, professional teeth whitening remains the most effective and safest option.

For in-chair teeth whitening, we use Philips Zoom and SDI Polar Rapid Plus to deliver fast and effective results. For take-home options, we offer Philips Zoom kits to continue your whitening treatment at home.
