Why Go Whiter?

Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you—and it can be your best asset. If it looks good, you’ll feel more confident, which will boost your self-esteem. A white smile is much more attractive than a yellowing one, and it will also make you look younger.

Although our teeth tend to become more yellow as we age, lifestyle habits also have a big effect on the colour of teeth with smoking, tea, coffee and some foods being the main culprits. In fact, anything that stains your clothes will also stain your teeth.

Am I A Suitable Candidate for Teeth Whitening?

Although a cosmetic procedure, teeth whitening is also a medical procedure and so you should pay heed to  teeth whitening safety tips and precautions before embarking on the treatment.

The first thing to consider is your overall dental health. Your oral health will need to be in tip-top condition for teeth whitening, with no gum disease or tooth decay. If you have any sensitivity due to health problems, teeth whitening treatments may cause permanent damage.

You also need to ascertain whether your teeth are stained because of antibiotics. Teeth whitening treatments only work on extrinsic stains, i.e. those that are on the outside of the tooth. However, antibiotic stains are intrinsic, on the inside of the tooth, which renders teeth whitening ineffective. If you do want to repair antibiotic staining, then dental veneers are the treatment you should pursue.

Are Teeth Whitening Treatments Suitable for Dental Tourists?

With virtually no downtime, teeth whitening treatments are excellent for dental tourists because they won’t interfere too much with your holiday. Laser teeth whitening is quick, only taking a couple of hours, and is highly-effective, whitening teeth by up to 14 shades.

Take-home whitening kits issued by the dentist will require a couple of visits—the first to have impressions made of your mouth so that custom-made trays that fit over your teeth can be made, and the next to pick up your trays and whitening gel. The beauty of at-home kits is that you can whiten your teeth in your own time, and to the shade you want. While the results aren’t as dramatic as laser teeth whitening, they are still effective in giving more subtle results.

What Is the Procedure for Teeth Whitening? How Long Will it Take?

Laser Teeth Whitening: The procedure takes one to two hours. The dentist will first clean your teeth thoroughly to remove stubborn stains and tartar. You will be given protective goggles to shield your eyes from the laser beam, and the dentist will position a rubber dam around your teeth to protect soft tissue from the bleaching gel.

The gel is applied to the teeth and the laser pointed at the gel to activate the whitening agents. Different tooth whitening systems may require a single 45-minute-long application whereas others require several applications of the gel, but for shorter 15-minute intervals. Once the required time is up, the dentist removes all the gel from your teeth and cleans them again to ensure all traces of the gel are removed. Your new smile is then ready to reveal to the world.

At-Home Whitening Kits: The dental trays are designed to fit over your teeth and hold the bleaching gel in place. Most people wear them overnight for up to two weeks or until they have achieved the desired result. You will need to clean the trays and your teeth every morning to ensure all traces of the gel are removed.

You can always obtain more gel from your dentist at home if you want to top up your whitening effect, bearing in mind not to overdo it.
