FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is tooth whitening?
Tooth Whitening is a simple and highly effective method
of lightening the colour of teeth without removing any
natural tooth material.
What causes tooth discolouration?
There is a great variation in the shade and
colour of natural teeth, but all teeth tend to discolour
as we get older. External tooth discoloration may occur
for several reasons. Plaque build-up, on and around
the teeth, if left unchecked, can result in tartar formation,
making the teeth look yellow and “dirty”.
In addition, surface staining can occur due to coffee,
tea, red wine or tobacco.
How does Tooth Whitening work?
A tooth whitening gel is placed in a thin cover
that is custom made to fit over the teeth like a very
thin gum shield. The tray containing the gel is worn
for a period of 2-3hours once a day for 7-12days.
How long does it last?
Treatment results may vary: the effects may
last from 1-3 years. Some patients may need to repeat
the procedure periodically to top up the effect.
When whitening might not work?
Whtening cannot change the colour of natural
teeth it can only lighten the existing shade. Whitening
only works on natural teeth: it will not effect the
colour of existing porcelain crown, veneers, bridges
or denture teeth. It will not change the colour or shade
of existing tooth coloured fillings: these may need
to be replaced to ensure good shade matching.
