What Is Teeth Whitening?

At Belmont Dental Surgery, we use a whitening gel to make your teeth brighter, cleaner, and whiter. Depending on the treatment, a specific light or laser is used to activate the gel. The solution or gel will be placed on your teeth for 30 minutes to an hour. This is the perfect procedure for anyone who wants to brighten their smile or remove stains and make discoloured teeth look perfect again.

What Are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

Here are a few dazzling benefits of teeth whitening:

People are more drawn to others who have a confident smile! Having your teeth whitened may have big benefits to your social life when it comes to meeting friends and romantic partners.

What are the Risks of Teeth Whitening? 

Teeth whitening is generally considered a safe dental procedure when managed by a dentist. Most patients won’t experience any adverse side effects. However, there are a few potential risks involved:

Gums sensitive to chemicals:

There’s a slight chance that your gums will have a sensitive reaction to the bleach used for teeth whitening. This could cause gum irritation for a short period after the procedure.

Sensitive teeth:

As a reaction to the chemicals, your teeth may become slightly sensitive. If you feel any discomfort, speak to your dentist so they can advise you on products to use to treat this sensitivity.

Enamel damage:

At-home teeth whitening products can cause damage to your enamel when overused or when not done correctly. An experienced dentist, like our team at Belmont Dental Surgery, will have the training to perform teeth whitening properly.

Weakened teeth:

There are various at-home teeth whitening kits, but not all of them are safe. The chemicals used in some of these products, particularly large amounts of hydrogen peroxide, have the potential to damage the nerves and connective tissue in your teeth and gums.

What Happens During the In-Chair Teeth Whitening Procedure?

Here are the steps for the teeth whitening procedure:

Book a consultation

You will first need to book a consultation with an experienced member of the Belmont Dental Surgery team. Here we will inspect your dental situation and prepare a personalised treatment just for you.

Prior to the whitening treatment

Prior to the whitening treatment, we will clean your teeth to eliminate any surface discolouration and other unwanted substances. We will also protect your gums and lips from the bleaching components by applying a protective gel or rubber shield.

Applying the whitening product

The whitening product (gel or solution) is placed onto your teeth.

Activating the whitening agent

A laser or special dental light is shone onto your teeth to activate the product. After 30 minutes to 1 hour, your smile is almost ready to go!

Removing the product

Finally, we’ll remove the whitening gel, rinse, and check the results. Our patients often see results of up to 8 shades whiter after their treatments. However, depending on the treatment and the amount of discolouration left after your session, your dentist may recommend further in-chair whitening sessions.

It’s as simple as that!

How Do You Maintain White Teeth?

To make your whitened teeth last longer, you can follow a few of these maintenance tips:

Avoid tooth-staining foods:

Sugary foods and drinks, such as red wine and fruit juice, tend to cause teeth staining. For the first few weeks after your teeth whitening treatment, stick to healthier and more natural foods and drinks like vegetables, fruits, tea, and water.

Observe good dental health:

Good dental hygiene is essential to a bright and dazzling smile. Be sure to brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis to keep your teeth as white as possible. It’s also a good idea to rinse your mouth or brush your teeth after meals and after having any staining drinks.

Don’t smoke:

Smoking cigarettes is a sure-fire way to re-stain any whitened teeth. Besides the general poor health that smoking can cause, it is especially bad for your dental health.

Use a straw for certain beverages:

When drinking beverages that cause teeth staining like coffee and soda, use a straw to avoid direct contact with your teeth.

Alternatives to Teeth Whitening

Getting the smile of your dreams can be achieved in many more ways than one. If in-chair teeth whitening doesn’t suit your needs, consider these potential dental alternatives:
