Professional Teeth Whitening What You Need To Know

Professional Teeth Whitening: What You Need To Know

Whiter teeth are not only a secret to a fuller and more confident smile, but it is also associated with good oral health, hygiene, and attractiveness. This is why professional teeth whitening has become more popular, and have become an efficient way of brightening teeth. But before you get into a teeth whitening procedure, it’s best to have a background about it. This quick guide will walk you through everything you need to know about professional teeth whitening.

What is professional teeth whitening?

Professional Teeth Whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dental procedure that uses bleach to brighten teeth. The two main products in teeth whitening are hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. This penetrates the outer covering of your tooth, called enamel, and changes the colour of the layer underneath it, called dentine—giving it a pearl white luster.

What is the professional teeth whitening process?

Before starting the procedure, your teeth shade will be determined by a tooth shade chart. Then, your dentist will use a rubber appliance and gauze seals to cover your gums, cheeks, tongue, and lips. This stops the bleaching agent from transferring from your teeth and onto delicate places like the gumline.

A whitening gel will next be applied to your tooth’s surface. This solution is activated by a UV light, which allows it to penetrate the enamel more deeply. Typically, this procedure might take anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes.

Once the treatment is done, your mouth will be rinsed and your dentist may discuss lifestyle habits that you may need to follow to maintain your teeth shade. You will see results as soon as the therapy is over.

What results to expect? How long does it last?

As aforementioned, you may experience visibly whiter teeth after your treatment. But results always vary depending on your teeth’ colour and type. Generally, if you have yellow-coloured teeth, you may see better results than if you have brown, grey, or white teeth.

In DentaLuxe, you can book an Advanced Treatment. A single session will take 1 hour and leave your teeth up to 2-7 shades lighter. You may also book a Premium Treatment and have 2-14 shades lighter teeth post-session.

Your results may last between 1 to 3 years. However, your diet, lifestyle, medications, and smoking habits can impact the results’ longevity.

Is professional teeth whitening safe?

Professional teeth whitening is a safe procedure and has no side effects for most people. Teeth whitening concerns often happen through improper use of home-kit whitening trays. However, some people may still encounter the following side effects: tooth sensitivity for a short period of time, and soft tissue irritation.

How much does professional teeth whitening cost?

The cost of professional, in-office teeth whitening ranges between $500 to $1000. Single Bookings at DentaLuxe costs $500, while you may also opt for Group Bookings where you can save $100 to $200 for each treatment.
