A simple way to improve your smile is by having your teeth whitened.

This cosmetic procedure lightens the colour of your teeth by utilising bleaching agents. It must be performed by a regulated dental professional.

 

Is it a permanent procedure?

How long a teeth-whitening procedure lasts varies from person to person, but it is not considered a permanent treatment. Generally, the results of a teeth whitening will last anywhere from several months up to a few years. Smoking and drinking pigmented beverages like red wine, tea, or coffee, can reduce the whitening effects faster. This can always be topped up with additional bleaching agents available from your dentist.

How is professional teeth-whitening better than a whitening toothpaste?

Whitening toothpaste attempts to remove staining agents by scrubbing them out. However, the abrasive solutions added to the toothpaste are so minimal they aren’t effective to any significant degree. Professional teeth whitening procedures use safe emulsions to directly alter the appearance of staining agents, leading to an instantly and dramatic lightening of tooth colour.

Will all of my teeth be affected by teeth-whitening?

Natural teeth can be lightened in colour by several shades. Any teeth that have been restored, such as crowns or implants, cannot be whitened. There are also some cases of staining due to antibiotics, such as tetracycline, where the teeth are only able to be minimally whitened. Discuss your options for whitening intrinsic stains and dental restorations with your dentist.
