Why Should I Whiten My Teeth?

While there is nothing to say that you have to whiten your teeth, there are a number of benefits you can experience by doing so.

While mostly cosmetic, these benefits include:

Enhanced self-esteem – a brighter, whiter smile is a major confidence boost. When your smile is at its best you are more inclined to laugh easily and smile more. This self-esteem boost can also lead to better oral hygiene as you will be more motivated to care for your new smile.

Can make you appear younger –  stained and yellowed teeth can make you appear older than you really are. A whiter smile is youthful and helps brighten your overall look. A beautiful smile also can draw attention away from scars, marks or wrinkles.

Shows you care about your appearance – Do you work in an office or other role where you interact with others a lot and handle meetings and presentations? Whiter teeth demonstrate you care enough to invest in yourself and your appearance.

It is a cost-effective cosmetic treatment – Teeth whitening procedures are an inexpensive and quick way to make you feel fresh and confident. No need for expensive or invasive surgical procedures, a quick whitening session can provide the boost you need.

How Do Dentists Whiten Teeth?

The professional teeth whitening process is done using a combination of hydrogen peroxide gel painted onto the teeth and a special heat lamp. The whitening gel will contain between 25% to 45% hydrogen peroxide and be applied three times at 20-minute intervals.

The strength of the gel used will largely depend on how stained your teeth are and how white you wish the results to be. With the Philips Zoom Teeth  Whitening system, you will see an immediate result up to 8 shades whiter

Can I Whiten My Teeth At Home?

While there are steps you can take to whiten your teeth at home, these methods are often less effective than those offered at a dental clinic. A home whitening kit will require much more dedication and patience than a professional session could achieve. The trays used for home treatments are often improperly fitted and may cause abrasions to the gums.

Home teeth whitening is also considered to carry other risks also. Chemical burns from improper use of the whitening gels or the risk of allergic reactions make choosing professional tooth whitening the better choice. Should you experience any issues, you are in the best possible hands.

Will It Hurt To Have My Teeth Whitened?

Teeth whitening can cause teeth sensitivity in some patients. This discomfort usually only lasts between 24-48 hours and can be treated with over the counter pain relief and by using sensitive toothpaste.

It is recommended to avoid hot, cold or acidic drinks in the first 48 hours after treatment as this will exacerbate any pain due to sensitivity. Tea, coffee, red wine and other drinks that are known to cause stains should also be avoided at this time.

How Long Does Treatment Take And What Does It Cost?

The whitening process will take approximately one hour to complete. The cost for your treatment will vary depending on the condition of your teeth at the time you begin treatment.

While some patients may only require a single treatment to achieve the shade they desire, heavily stained teeth may need additional treatments. This means that teeth whitening costs will differ from patient to patient.
