Teeth Whitening

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening, a popular cosmetic procedure, involves a series of steps. First, a bleaching product is meticulously applied to each tooth. Then, a light or laser is used to activate the whitening process, enhancing the natural look of your teeth. 

What’s the Process of Teeth Whitening?

When having a tooth-whitening treatment, you must understand precisely what the process does to your teeth and how dentists can deliver this service safely. 

The bleaching product that is carefully applied to teeth is known as ‘peroxide’. It breaks down the enamel on the teeth, making each one porous. By doing this, the dentine underneath the enamel is exposed, which the bleaching agent then penetrates to reach deep into the tooth’s core. The peroxide then helps the tooth to rebuild its white tooth tissues from the inside out, giving you a lasting look of whitened teeth. 

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

When having your teeth whitened by a reputable, professional dentist with experience in the practice, teeth whitening should not hurt at all. Ensure your dentist is using reputable products to guarantee ultimate safety. 

    Can I Eat and Drink After Teeth Whitening?

    Due to the process of teeth whitening and its sensitive nature, we recommend you steer clear of cold food and drinks, such as iced beverages and foods such as ice cream. This is to reduce the risk of any discomfort following your treatment. 

    Following a strict diet for 48 hours after your teeth whitening treatment helps you reduce the risk of long-term staining to your teeth during this period.
