Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Reasons for tooth whitening:
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
- Stained teeth due to medications, excessive tea or coffee consumption.
Which is better: at home or at the dentist?
The best option for you is really a matter of personal preference. You can choose to have the tooth whitening performed in-house at Radiant Smiles Dental Care or we can provide you with your own customised teeth whitening kits to be carried out at home.
Is whitening safe?
Yes. Research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. Any tooth whitening product, is not recommended for children or pregnant women.
What are the risks of home kits and salon teeth whitening?
Some home kits don’t contain enough of the whitening product to be effective. More generally, if a dental professional is not doing the whitening, the mouthguard provided may not fit properly so some of the bleaching gel may leak out onto your gums and into your mouth, causing blistering and sensitivity.
Are there any side effects?
Sensitivity during treatment may occur with some patients. Tooth sensitivity may occur after treatment but this usually lasts for a few hours and with the help of your dentist this can be minimised.
