What Is The Most Common Method Of Tooth Whitening?

Expert tooth bleaching is the most common method of whitening teeth. Your dental surgery will be able to tell you the most suitable method of treatment and if you would even be advisable for you to partake in the procedure, you can of course back that up with the information you receive on this site. Firstly, the dental team will place a rubber shield on your gums to help protect them from the other harsh chemicals used in the procedure. Then, they will then apply the whitening product to your teeth, using a specially made try which will be fitted to your mouth and this will act as a mouthguard. 

The active ingredient in the whitening product is usually hydrogen peroxide (also referred to as carbamide peroxide). As the active ingredient degrades, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour ultimately becomes lighter.

How Long Does The Whitening Last?

The effects of whitening typically last about three years, this is of course a rough estimate as it will change from person to person. Although, if you smoke please note that this could have an  effect on how long the whitening lasts, also, certain foods and drinks will also effect the whitening duration. You should ask your dental clinic before you start to see what there estimate is.

When Might Tooth Whitening Not Work?

All tooth whitening can do is lighten your existing tooth colour, it is no magic "fix-all". Furthermore, it only works on natural teeth and not on "false" teeth such as veneers, crowns or dentures.

If you have stained dentures you should have them cleaned rather than whitened.
