Teeth whitening FAQs

What is in-office teeth whitening?

Our in-office teeth whitening treatment begins with a short preparation in which the gums are covered and protected before a whitening gel is applied to the teeth.

The whitening gel works by breaking up stains and discolouration on the teeth. The gel is applied every 15 minutes for a total treatment of three rounds. We generally recommend that you have a comprehensive check-up and clean before you begin a whitening treatment.

We create a custom bleaching tray for you to take home so that you can perform the whitening treatment yourself. The custom tray is designed to ensure that the correct amount of whitening material is used, and that your teeth are properly exposed to the formula.

An at-home whitening treatment takes between half an hour to overnight to work, depending on your needs and expectations. After two or three weeks of using your at-home whitening treatment, you will need to come in for a follow-up consultation. While the results generally last for one or more years (depending on your personal habits), you will need to repeat the procedure in time for the best possible results.

Many DIY teeth whitening brands have a good reputation, and a lot of this merit comes down to the many results displayed on online platforms. This does not make them safe though. Don’t do your teeth more harm than good. Many of these DIY teeth whitening kits erode your teeth due to the lack of control you may have, compared to having a dental professional whiten your teeth.

Read our blog “The reality of DIY teeth whitening” for more information.

Some procedure protocols do involve high intensity light which reportedly can cause burns, especially if it’s not performed correctly. Particularly, if you have sensitive teeth, periodontal conditions or acid erosion prior to teeth whitening, the UV light may have detrimental effects if used, or overexposed.

Seeing a dental professional is the best thing you could do for your teeth, especially if you are looking to have them whitened!

Unlike DIY teeth whitening kits or over-the-counter products, this means the entire process is overlooked by a dental professional, you will not be overexposed to any products, and our team can pre-determine if the treatment will be suitable for you or not.

Teeth whitening, although highly effective, is not a permanent solution to discoloured teeth. In most cases, you can expect the results of your treatment to last for a year or more, but this will depend on your personal habits, including oral hygiene and dietary choices.

For an in-office teeth whitening treatment, we recommend that you come in for follow-up treatments between every six months and a year for the best possible results. If you choose a take-home tooth whitening treatment, we recommend that you come in for a follow-up visit around two to three weeks after your first appointment.

No. Teeth whitening is a safe and effective treatment, but we highly recommend that you get your treatment done professionally by a dentist to ensure your safety and comfort.

When you come in to see us, we’ll begin the process with a consultation, which will allow your dentist to assess your overall oral health and determine which tooth whitening treatment is best for your particular needs. It’s important that you choose a professional whitening treatment so that the correct amount of whitening gel is used, and that your gums are protected throughout the process.

Yes, absolutely. While we do offer take-home whitening kits, it is also possible to come in and see us for an in-office whitening procedure. In fact, having your teeth whitened at the dental office is the quickest and most effective option, plus it only takes around an hour to complete.

Before the treatment begins, your dentist will do a thorough check-up and clean. Then, your gums will be covered for protection and a whitening gel will be applied to your teeth. The gel will be applied to your teeth in three sessions every 15 minutes.
