Laser Teeth Whitening

Laser Teeth Whitening is the most usual method of tooth whitening. Your dentist will be able to tell you if you are suitable for the treatment.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Simply put, teeth whitening is a chemical process that works to remove surface and deep-surface stains on teeth. Over-the-counter and professional teeth whitening solutions include a whitening agent that breaks down to target the stains that are causing tooth discolouration.

This process leads to the lightening of the tooth. The structure of the tooth is not altered by the whitening process. Enamel, fillings, crowns and veneers are also not changed by whitening agents. Teeth whitening, when done correctly, is a safe procedure. Extensive research and clinical studies have indicated that whitening teeth is a safe procedure. Even with good oral healthcare teeth can become stained and even yellowed over the years.

Professional teeth whitening is a non-invasive treatment that can be used to reduce and remove stains on the natural tooth enamel. It’s an ideal solution to help you restore your smile.

10 reasons you need teeth whitening

Aftercare tips for professional teeth whitening

Particularly in the 48 hours after your teeth whitening procedure, avoid anything acid-based, including soda, pickles and citrus fruits like orange and lemon. Once the 48-hour period passes, consider supplementing these foods with lighter-colored fruits like apples and bananas and crunchy, acid-neutralizing vegetables, like carrots, green beans and celery. Dairy products also help strengthen your teeth and reduce decay.

If you eat something dark-colored, be sure to rinse your mouth out afterwards and brush your teeth. If you are on-the-go, chew some sugar-free gum within 20 minutes of finishing your meal.

Aside from the type of food, also think about its temperature. Your recently whitened teeth may be extremely sensitive to hot and cold sensations. Avoid anything too extreme in either direction and, for the time being, consider using an anti-sensitivity toothpaste.

Frequently asked questions

Whitening does not work on ceramic or porcelain crowns or veneers. These teeth will remain the same colour, as before the treatment.

It’s advised to wait 6 months between two treatments. 

So just what are the best teeth whitening products? There are many over-the-counter options, but they can rarely get to those deeper stains. Laser teeth whitening is a safe and effective solution that can help patients remove stains and restore a pearly white smile.

Laser whitening treatments are often considered to be the most effective option. There are other options for teeth whitening like home whitening treatments using a custom-made tray which fits your teeth perfectly, filled with whitening gel.

Healthy teeth can become stained from the foods and drinks that we consume. Coffee, red wine, tea, soft drinks, dark berries and even tomato-based foods and drinks can all have an impact on your teeth. The stains may build up gradually but soon you’ll find that your teeth simply aren’t as brilliantly white as they were once.

The best teeth whitening treatments will target these surface stains and remove them. To keep from needing frequent whitening treatments patients are often encouraged to avoid these foods and drinks going forward.

Enjoying the most benefit from this gentle, effective procedure includes watching what you eat for the first day afterward. In general, you should avoid foods that are likely to cause re-staining or irritate sensitive teeth. After a short time you can resume a normal healthy diet, normally between 24-72 hours.

This was my first time at Denticare. While in December I was not able to easily book an appointment (I guess everyone wanted to show their white pearls at their best for the Christmas parties), now in February I got an appointment quickly. The place is really easy to find, just be careful, once inside you need to go upstairs! Everyone here is really friendly and professional. I had the scale and polish with the teeth whitening. Very precise clean up of my teeths, I can't remember her name but she took such a good care of me, while being so kind. The whitening treatment was really gentle on my gums, no irritation at all. However, was enough to show a good difference! Overall I am satisfied with the service they provided and I can totally reccomand this practice :)
