Teeth whitening is a process by which your teeth can be made to look a lot whiter and brighter in a non-invasive manner thereby enhancing the appearance of your smile.
Teeth whitening is one of the most safest and non-invasive procedures in dentistry as long as it is be carried out by a registered and highly trained dental professional. Unregulated teeth whitening carried out by non dental professionals is not only illegal in the UK but is also unsafe and could cause irreversible damage to your teeth and gums.
Broadly speaking there are 2 main types of tooth whitening either “At home” whitening or “Combination” whitening which involves at home and an in-surgery component to the whitening process.
At home whitening is process where your dentist will provide you with custom made whitening trays that fit your teeth like a like a glove and a home whitening kit with full instructions and demonstration on how to use it. You would then follow the instructions and commence whitening your teeth every day for approx. 4-6 weeks.
You would either carry out the whitening for 1 hour per day (if using a “day whitening” kit) or overnight if using a “night whitening” kit.
“Combination whitening” is a process that follows the home whitening protocol exactly as described above but with the additional in surgery where your dentist would apply a higher concentration of whitening gel onto your teeth for atleast 1 hour to helps boost and enhance the effects of the home whitening. This protocol of whitening will allow your teeth to become whiter at a faster rate and may also give you a slighter whiter result overall.
The main whitening ingredient in 'day' whitening kits are 6% Hydrogen peroxide (Which the maximum legally permitted in the UK at the time of writing).
Whilst in 'night' whitening kits the main ingredients are either 10% or 16% Carbamide Peroxide. These are tried and tested formulations that are safe and effective as the process is managed by a qualified dental professional
Tooth whitening carried out by a dental professional using the correct products is a perfectly safe procedure that does not damage the enamel in any way whatsoever.
For those interested in the science behind the process, the whitening gels penetrate the enamel through microscopic pores and binds to the stain molecules and breaks them up the via a ‘free radical’ chain reaction. This allows the teeth to look a lot brighter without altering the enamel in anyway.
The will vary depending on many factors such as but not limited to how well you follow the instructions, the porosity of your enamel, how long you whiten for, your diet and in particular the types of chromatic foods that you consume, how much you smoke, how often you consume tea, coffee, red wine, curries etc. Dependant on all these factors some peoples teeth will whiten 8-10 shades whilst others' will whiten only a couple
This again depends on your life style and diet. On average you can expects 20-30 fade back in 6 months ifyou havent topped up
We would advise that you top up atleast one night or day per month after your main intensive course of whitening has been completed. If your diet is particularly high in consuming tea, coffee, red wine, smoking and currries then we would recommend you top up more regularly.
If you have an upcoming important social engagement/wedding etc then you can do a 7-10 day consecutive course to help boost the whiteness of the teeth again prior to the big event.
Any artificial surfaces on teeth such as those covered by fillings, crowns, bridges, veneers, implants will not whiten. Only the natural tooth enamel will whiten.
If you want them whiter then you would need to consider veneers or crowns.
We offer a haven of tranquillity, thoughtfully designed to stimulate the senses and complemented by state-of-the-art technology that makes your experience calm, relaxing and ultimately re-energising.
