What you need to know about teeth whitening

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a quick, safe and affordable procedure that bleaches the enamel surface of your teeth to restore its whiteness. Teeth whitening is used to correct tooth discolouration caused by staining, ageing and chemical damage.

At Healthway Dental clinics, our dentists use LED (light-emitting diode) teeth whitening treatment to achieve quicker results, giving you a brighter smile instantly with little to no sensitivity.

How does teeth whitening work?

Let us know which teeth you want whitened. This can be all of them or just the top front or bottom front. It depends which teeth you show when you talk and smile. You can opt for one of two ways to whiten your teeth:

  • Our in-clinic service where the treatment will be administered in the chair and you can leave with significantly whiter teeth.
  • Take home teeth-whitening kit: your dentist will take an impression to make a customised mouthguard used to hold the bleach against the teeth. Once this is ready, you will be given the mouthguard and a bleaching agent to take home. Wear the guard for about 3-4 hours every night and in two weeks you will have a dazzling smile.

Who is teeth whitening suitable for?

Teeth whitening is used to correct tooth discolouration caused by staining, ageing and chemical damage. Your dentist will advise you if teeth whitening will work on your teeth. If the discolouration is too extreme, you may be recommended veneers or crowns instead.

How long does the teeth whitening last?

You only need to give your teeth an occasional repeat treatment when you notice they have started to stain again.

Will the bleach damage my teeth?

The treatment is applied for a very short time so will not alter your tooth structure or damage your enamel.

Can I use over-the-counter bleaching agents instead?

Even though these can be bought from pharmacies, they can harm your teeth and gums, so you are advised to consult a dentist for safe teeth whitening.
