Teeth Whitening


Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening, as the name implies, is a cosmetic dental procedure for turning discolored teeth white to improve aesthetics. The process is simple, painless, and should last a long time, provided you take good care of your teeth. Teeth whitening is also one of the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures and is completely non-invasive, thus suitable for everyone, including kids and the elderly.


We Offer

In-Office Whitening

We offer in-office teeth whitening handled by our highly-qualified cosmetic dentists. They’ll pick the best whitening agent for you, and whiten your teeth in a single session that takes no more than a couple of hours. The process is simple, fast, and effective with amazing results.

Take -Home Whitening

Additionally, we also offer take-home whitening, for patients who need a more convenient option. Here, we’ll take impressions of your teeth, and create custom whitening trays that you’ll use with a whitening agent for your treatment. The dentist will give you instructions on how to wear the trays, how and when to use them, and how much whitening agent to use. You’ll then have to wear these whitening trays for specific periods every day until your teeth turn white.

Laser Whitening

You can also opt for laser teeth whitening if the first two don’t suit your needs. Laser teeth whitening uses a combination of whitening agents and high-intensity lasers to whiten your teeth. However, it may not be suitable for people with intrinsic teeth stains.

What to Expect During

Teeth Whitening

Consultation and Cleaning

The dental cleaning process starts when you consult the dentist about a tooth discoloration issue. They’ll examine the extent of the discoloration and decide whether to proceed with the whitening. Patients with dental decay and gum disease might receive treatment before the whitening. After treatment, the dentist will clean your teeth by removing plaque, tartar, and debris, then brushing your teeth.

Gum and Oral Tissue Protection

The bleaching agents dentists use might be too harsh for your gums and the inside of the mouth. As such, the dentists will apply a protective gel on these areas to protect them from the whitening agent. They might also use a dental dam instead for cases of severe discoloration for the same purpose.

Application of the Whitening Agent

Next, the dentist will carefully apply the whitening agent on the affected teeth using a small brush. These whitening agents typically consist of hydrogen peroxide or hydrogen carbamide. They work by breaking down these stains, making it easier to eject them from the teeth. The dentist will then use UV light to activate the whitening agent. They’ll repeat the process as many times as it takes until your teeth turn completely white. This usually takes a single sitting, but patients with severe discoloration may require more than one teeth-whitening session.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

No, teeth whitening is a completely painless and non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require a local anesthetic. The process is as simple as applying a bleaching agent to the teeth and rinsing it once it bleaches the teeth. However, it’s common for patients to experience a bit of sensitivity that goes away a few days after the whitening.

How Long Does It Take for Teeth-Whitening Trays to Work?

Teeth-whitening takes about a week to two weeks to work. The length of the treatment depends on how well you follow the dentist's advice and your eating and lifestyle habits during treatment. Treatment takes longer for patients who continue to use tobacco and drink high;y-pigmented foods.
