WHAT IS TEETH WHITENING?

By: Smileway Dental

Whitening is a process of using bleach or other materials to make teeth look whiter. The materials remove stains or other discoloration from the tooth surface.

Why whiten teeth?

Teeth colour is determined from the formation of it, some more yellow than the others. Over the time your teeth can also become stained and discolored through food and aging. In most situations, once your teeth have been stained or discolored, brushing alone cannot remove the stained or restore the whiteness of your teeth.

Types of whitening

In-office whitening

This is done in the dental clinic by the dentist. Usually takes an hour to complete. It is carried out carefully under monitored conditions and pain-free, using a relatively high concentration of bleaching gel which can give you instantly visible result.

Home kit whitening

They contain lower amount of bleaching gel than the whitening product used by dentist. You will still have good results with a longer time. The concentration is lower, the results are slower and slightly more stable.

How to take care of whitened teeth?
Reduce consumption of food that will stain teeth fast for example coffee, tea, red wine and smoking. If you choose to consume beverages that stain, prefer to use a straw so the liquid bypass your whitened teeth.

Use home whitening kit to maintain the whitened teeth at your own pace at the comfort of your home.

How long will it last?

Usually 8 months to 1 year.

Any side effects of teeth whitening?

Temporary teeth sensitivity for 1-3 days.

These are some of the steps you can take to have a stronger and healthier tooth. After all, we all want to make sure we are problem free and we can enjoy our life and food for many years.

The response from time of my asking for an appointment (though last minute) was handled well. Staff was ensuring that if I couldn't make the 5pm appointed time then she offered to reschedule. So I did for the next day. Dr Edwin was super nice and gave options to see that my swollen due to infection gum was treated with care. I only visit this clinic because of its professionalism. Cheers guys and keep up the great job ! Thanks.

People with dental phobia like me have an awareness that the fear is totally irrational, but with extensive experience in the field of dentistry, Dr Lisa provides efficient and compassionate patient care. I just had my tooth extraction this morning and it was painless.... Furthermore Dr Lisa are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unnecessary treatment. Thank you so much Dr Lisa 🙏

Got a bridge and implant done by Dr Jon this year. Still holding up, looking forward to next and hopefully final treatment for missing tooth. Flexible payment terms and polite staff. Give them a try if you haven't.

Having great experience so far. The doctor are very attentive and explain things very thoroughly without pushing for unncesssary treatment. The clinic is well lit and very clean👍👍. It is on the first and second so it will be a bit hard if you have a bad leg.
