 TEETH WHITENING
Bleaching is a process by which teeth are whitened using peroxidase based compounds to improve their colour. Two bleaching methods are available.
Office Bleaching
Whiter teeth in 1 hour. It's that simple. Years of staining from coffee, tea, red wine, and cola are magically erased, giving you teeth a few shades whiter. In office bleaching procedure, your gums and lips are protected with barrier materials. Whitening gel is applied on your teeth and blue light activates it. The procedure is complete in an hour.
Home Bleaching
We can provide this kit for home use (not to be confused with over-the-counter bleaching products available in your local drugstore).
Do whitening toothpaste, rinses, flosses and chewing gums actually work?
Over the counter products are relatively ineffective at best, and some of these can be very abrasive, and actually cause damage to the enamel.
The whitening is deceiving on these products, because if it rubs off a little extrinsic stain, does that mean the teeth have been whitened?
You need a bleaching agent such as carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide in order to intrinsically whiten your teeth. These agents must remain in contact with the enamel for a certain period of time in order to be effective. Even toothpastes that claim to have these agents are not very effective, because they have a mild concentration of peroxide and they are not in contact for long enough duration to make any difference.
Is whitening safe? Does Whitening harm your tooth’s enamel?
Teeth bleaching has proven to be a safe and effective way of achieving a more youthful and a healthy looking smile .The safety and effectiveness of this procedure is directly related to the dosage given, the frequency and duration of treatment, the concentration and the type of material used. During the time that you whiten, the fluoride rich layer of enamel is broken down and the teeth become more porous, making them more susceptible to the acids and sugars in your mouth. Within 24-48 hours your tooth s enamel will re-mineralize and build-up that protective fluoride-rich layer again. If you become a whitening junkie, and never give your enamel the chance to re-mineralize, then you can cause long term adverse effects to your teeth.
