Teeth whitening - overview

Do you want a brighter smile? When it comes to teeth whitening, you have two options: in-office whitening and home care. Both tooth whitening options use a peroxide-based bleach. Home systems contain 3% – 20% peroxide (carbamide or hydrogen peroxide). In-office systems includes 15% – 43% peroxide. In general, the longer you leave the strong solution on your teeth, the whiter your teeth will be. However, the higher the percentage of peroxide in the bleaching solution, the less time you apply it to your teeth. Leaving the gel on for too long can dehydrate your teeth and make them more sensitive. Each option has its pros and cons, but always consult your dentist before trying any at-home teeth whitening kit.Not everyone sees good results. Bleaching does not whiten porcelain crowns or tooth-colored composites.

In-office whitening

Also called chairside bleaching or internal bleaching, this procedure usually takes the dentist 1-2 hours. Your dentist will apply a protective gel to your gums or a gum shield to protect them. Then, under professional supervision, apply the bleach to your teeth and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Whitening is performed 2-3 times during an outpatient visit. IO bleaching is often offered with or without LED lamps and heat, and costs accordingly. Standard whitening alone starts at £250-300 for local offices in the UK, and £450 using LED lamps or heat. A thorough rinse follows. The procedure is similar to AT-Home bleaching.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Options

There are many ways to whiten your teeth at home, but here are the most popular:

  • Teeth whitening strips and gel. These peroxide-based tooth whitening products are applied directly to the teeth using a brush or thin strips and usually he should apply them once or twice a day for 10-14 days. Results last over 4 months.
  • Splint-based teeth whitening system. This teeth whitening option involves filling a mouthguard-like tray with a peroxide-based bleaching gel or paste and placing it on your teeth for one to several hours each day for up to four weeks. You can buy a tray-based teeth whitening system over-the-counter or have it customized by your dentist.
  • Teeth Whitening Toothpaste: Because it is slightly abrasive, any toothpaste will help remove stains from your teeth.However, whitening toothpaste contains chemicals that help remove stains from your teeth without the aid of bleaching agents. It also contains substances or abrasives. Teeth whitening toothpastes are relatively inexpensive and will whiten your teeth by about one step. Some whitening toothpastes contain peroxide, but it doesn’t stay on teeth long enough to produce a whitening effect.
