What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that helps to lighten teeth by removing stains and discolouration. All teeth whitening products contain peroxide, either as carbamide peroxide (CP) or hydrogen peroxide (HP).
What Happens During Teeth Whitening Treatment?
Treatment for teeth whitening generally begins with a consultation with our dentist. It’s important for your dentist to complete a thorough check-up to determine which kind of treatment is the best for your individual needs and wants. We offer in-chair whitening including laser tooth whitening and take home products.
For in-chair whitening, your dentist will first place either a rubber shield or gel on your gums. This protects your gums and other soft tissues from the effects of bleaching. They will then apply the whitening product to your teeth. Typically the active agent in whitening products is either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The active ingredients are broken down and as oxygen gets into the enamel on your teeth, stains are removed, leaving you with a brighter smile. Some treatment may also involve using a light or laser to activate the whitening product.
You can also ask your dentist about in house bleaching measures and reliable products which can be used alone or as an adjunct after in practice bleaching.
