Teeth Whitening FAQS

Do you have questions about teeth whitening? We’ve got answers. Check out our frequently asked questions to learn more about the process, aftercare, maintenance, and more.

Tooth colour is influenced by a combination of organic and inorganic stains found on the surface and inside the teeth (intrinsic and extrinsic stains).

These discolorations can be the result of several factors, including diet (drinking coffee, tea, or red wine), lifestyle choices (smoking), age, or exposure to certain medications (such as tetracycline or fluoride).

Tooth whitening is the process of breaking apart chemical bonds in these organic and inorganic stain-causing compounds through the application of a peroxide-based whitening gel to the teeth. Either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide can be used. Because carbamide peroxide requires an extra step to break down into the more reactive hydrogen peroxide, hydrogen peroxide products are typically used for short daytime use and carbamide peroxide is used for longer overnight periods.

In order to provide the most rapid and effective whitening treatment, in-chair whitening gels contain hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient. In recent years, new technological advances have pushed teeth whitening to a new level with the combination of peroxide-based agents with light sources that have been designed to accelerate the chemical redox reactions of the whitening process.

During the 90 -minute treatment, the combination of a hydrogen peroxide whitening gel and intense, blue light source oxides rapidly the organic discolorations found on the surface and inside the teeth, rendering those stains neutral in colour and resulting in a brighter appearance. At the same time, the gel formula gently polishes the surface of teeth.

The result is a white, shiny smile with years of stains from food, drinks, and cigarettes erased after one, hour and a half long treatment.

Those who have had a dental scaling within two weeks of their appointment, those with current cracks in their teeth, those suffering from gum diseases, clients under 16 and those breastfeeding or pregnant.

We recommend our customers follow a ‘white-diet’ for 24 hours post treatment. This is to maximise results and minimise any chance of staining from highly pigmented foods and drinks as the enamel remains quite susceptible to stains within this time frame.

We then recommend clients see us for a 3 month review to see how fast the teeth are regressing back to their original colour. Following this, we can book in a follow up treatment.

In most cases, clients should see whitening results lasting for up to 12 months, provided he or she has followed the guidelines outlined post-treatment care card.

Following all whitening treatments with a peroxide-based whitening gel, the tooth enamel is slightly dehydrated and is more susceptible to re-staining in the 24 hours following the treatment. Thus the “White Diet” was created to emphasize to clients the need to limit his or her consumption of staining food or drinks in the first day following his or her whitening treatment.

For clients with 3 severe stains, rebounding can also occur if the initial whitening was superficial and only reached the top layer of tooth enamel. In cases with unusually dark stains, the whitening gel may only be able to whiten the surface enamel of the teeth initially and the deeper, harder to remove stains found inside the tooth are not whitened during the first treatment. When this occurs, once the tooth colour has settled, the darker stains still inside of the teeth can became visible again through the tooth enamel.

In cases where this occurs, we recommend that you proceed with another round of whitening.

This depends on the individual and what he or she wants to see from the whitening treatment. If you want to see dramatic whitening results in a short amount of time, you can come back about a week after the first treatment for an additional touch-up treatment. You will need to be aware that there is a greater risk of sensitivity from this touch-up treatment, but that this is transient and will pass within 24-48 hours.

Some people may experience slight discomfort from sensitivity, however, this is rare for people with no teeth concerns. Even clients with sensitive teeth do not usually experience any pain. If you are worried, using sensodyne for two weeks leading up to your appointment can help. Pain relief following treatment can also reduce any discomfort.

Yes, you can. The teeth whitening will just not whiten your false teeth.

We actually recommend that clients with implants get whitening done as usually their natural teeth are getting discoloured and do not match their implants, this is a great way to get them all to match nicely.
