How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening in our Epping clinic is a highly specialised procedure designed to lighten and whiten the enamel and dentin of the teeth. Our teeth become discoloured as we get older, and as we expose them to substances like tea, coffee, red wine and tobacco products.

There are whitening toothpastes on the market but these usually contain abrasives and only remove surface stains from the teeth. To reverse the signs of ageing, you need a professional whitening treatment.

What Can You Expect From A Tooth Whitening Treatment?

Your dentist will first assess the condition of your teeth and your lifestyle factors to see if you are a candidate for bleaching. If you have veneers and crowns, it is important to note that they will not respond to teeth whitening treatment. Your dentist will need to do a professional cleaning before a whitening procedure and complete any fillings.

In-chair teeth whitening with Zoom

Our in-chair dental whitening takes around an hour to complete and is performed under professional settings. First your dentist will prepare your gums and lips, leaving only your teeth exposed.

Then he will apply the Zoom whitening gel. The whitening gel contains hydrogen peroxide that, together with the Zoom light, will penetrate into the teeth, break the stains apart and leave you with a whiter smile.

The bleaching gel will be left on your teeth for 15 minutes at a time. The dentist applies the gel a few times, for a total treatment time of 45 minutes. Once this is done your dentist will apply another gel, to reduce any sensitivity.

Take-home whitening solutions

If you opt for a take-home teeth whitening treatment, your dentist will create a cast of your teeth, and give you the bleaching gel to put on yourself. It is important that you do not leave the gel on longer than recommended and that you follow all the safety precautions given to you by your dentist.

Your dentist will give you a whitening kit to wear overnight for a recommended period of time, depending on how white you would like your end result to be.

Maintaining Your White Smile

After the dental whitening treatment you may need to make some lifestyle adjustments to keep your smile white like avoiding drinks and foods that stain and quitting smoking. Regular teeth cleanings and top up whitening treatments may be recommended by your dentist.
