FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Tooth whitening treatments supervised by professionals have proved to change the teeth dramatically and result in a notably whiter color. The over-the-counter whitening products work differently from the professional systems to whiten teeth. The difference in shades can be far less visible. More importantly yet, even if some pharmacy products can whiten your teeth, only the teeth whitening treatments supervised by professionals have proven to be safe and effective for over ten years.
Why do teeth change color?
There are numerous causes. The most frequent ones are age and the use of substances that stain (coffee, tea, cola drinks, and tobacco), traumatisms, tetracycline (antibiotics), too much fluoride, nervous degeneration and old restorations.
Can white fillings (resins, crowns) be whitened?
No whitening treatment can whiten white fillings, or teeth with crowns or laminates. That’s yet another reason to talk to a professional before using any whitening product. As part of his treatment plan, your dentist will guide you through the different aesthetic options to give you a bright smile.
How does professional tooth whitening treatment work?
The process of professional whitening occurs by neutralizing the discoloration of the tooth. When the carbamide peroxide in the professional whiteners is activated, the oxygen enters the hard outer surface (enamel) of the tooth and removes the color substances or stains under the surface. Since the tooth enamel is transparent, the natural and clearer color of the inner tooth will remain visible.
How does the process start?
Professional whitening begins with a consultation at your dentist’s office to determine if it can safely be applied to you. If so, it can be done that same day or be scheduled for a later date. It will take about one hour.
How long will my teeth remain white?
Professionally whitened teeth remain white for a long time. Frequent applications and regular visits to the dentist for cleaning will make your white and shiny smile last longer.
Who can benefit from dental whitening?
Almost everybody. In a few cases, however, the treatment could be ineffective. A complete mouth exploration and diagnosis will help the dentist determine who can have the treatment. This dental whitening system is ideal for those with healthy teeth without restorations and who wish to have a whiter and shinier smile.
Is the method safe?
Studies carried out indicate that carbamide peroxide tooth whitening under a dentist’s supervision is safe for teeth and gums.
Are there any side effects?
Some people might experience higher sensitivity to cold during the treatment. Others might suffer tooth sensitivity or gingivitis. Such symptoms are temporary and usually disappear 1 to 3 days after completing the treatment.
