Professional teeth whitening is a popular treatment to brighten your smile that is both efficient and safe.

What to expect at a professional whitening appointment?

Professional whitening typically involves several steps:

  • First, the dentist will use a tooth shade chart to determine the current shade of your teeth.
  • The dentist will then use a pumice tool to polish your teeth and remove plaque.
  • The dentist will ensure the whitening agent doesn’t touch any of the fleshy parts of your mouth like the cheeks, gums, or tongue. He will use tools to keep your mouth open. A barrier will be placed along the gum line.
  • The dentist then applies the whitening agent and leaves it on for 10 – 15 minutes (one cycle). It is also when the dentist would use light activation as a part of your treatment and then rinse the whitening gel off.
  • If there is no sever sensitivity and you desire a whiter teeth then we can repeat the cycle by reapplying the whitening agent and activate it using the light again, we can go up to 4 cycles in one bleaching session.
  • Once the whitening process is done, your mouth is rinsed. Then, the dentist may apply fluoride, which will help mitigate any potential sensitivity.
  • You and the dentist discuss if your teeth have reached the desired shade and the lifestyle habits you will need to practice for the next day or so to let the whitening agent sink in. These include not eating brightly coloured foods and avoiding red wine and coffee. After the whitening treatment, your teeth are dehydrated, making them extra susceptible to liquid and food stains.

After the treatment

Your Teeth Will Continue to Get Whiter
After your teeth whitening treatment, you will notice a difference in your smile. However, your teeth will continue to become whiter over the next two days.

You May Have Some Mild Pain
Some people experience pain and sensitivity after teeth whitening. It may occur around the gum lines or near the roots of the teeth. The pain is mild and will not last long. Many patients experience no pain at all.

Teeth Sensitivity for a Few Days
It is common for your teeth to be sensitive following teeth whitening for a few days. It is particularly noticeable when you eat or drink something cold. For the next 48 hours after whitening, your teeth will be sensitive to discolouration. As a result, dark beverages such as coffee, wine, and soda should be avoided.
