What is Teeth Whitening?
Have you been considering teeth whitening but are unsure if it's right for you or how to go about it? If so, by the end of this article you will have all the information you need to help you make an informed decision.
Teeth whitening is exactly what it sounds like restoring your teeth to the natural bright, white colour they used to be before years of wear and tear, chewing, smoking, coffee drinking, etc., made them another colour. Whether your teeth are currently off-white, yellow or dark brown, a dental professional can help restore your smile so that you aren't embarrassed to flash those pearly whites in public.
Teeth whitening products come in a few different forms but all of them operate around the same basic principle: peroxide is used to dissolve any organic stains on the surface of your teeth to produce whiter teeth. The peroxide comes in one of two forms: Carbamide peroxide (CP) or Hydrogen peroxide (HP).
What Happens During a Teeth Whitening Session?
When you make a teeth whitening appointment, your dentist will check for a number of things to see if you are a good candidate for the process, including:
- Receding gum line
- Sensitivity in teeth
- Thickness of tooth enamel
- Existing veneers, crowns, fillings, etc.
- Oral disease
- Tooth decay
- Level of discolouration
Not everyone is a good candidate for whitening procedures since there are some risks for those with advanced tooth decay and extensive dental work (see below). After performing these checks and clearing you for the procedure, your teeth whitening professional will recommend the best option for your particular situation. There are two popular choices: an in-office whitening session and a take home teeth whitening kit.
In-Office Teeth Whitening in Melbourne
A quick and easy way to get your teeth whiter in just one day is the in-office teeth whitening session. In just about 90 minutes, your teeth can be up to 12 shades whiter as years of built up stains and discolouration is removed. This is achieved by the application of a prescription formula whitening gel. When the gel is on your teeth, a UV lamp is used to activate the whitening effects and this process is repeated two to three times depending on whitening goals and initial results. Many people opt for this procedure because it is quick, effective, professionally done and doesn't involve any labor.
Professional Take-Home Whitening Kits
While you're likely to get professional home whitening kits after your in-office procedure (to keep the your teeth whiter than ever before), you can skip the office session altogether and just get the kit to go. These kits are cheaper than the in-office whitening since you'll do most of the work yourself. Of course, this means you'll also bear the responsibility for any damage incurred and have to wait a few weeks to see your full results.
Typically, you'll receive a customized mouth tray that will aid in the application of a reduced strength (lower CP or HP) whitening gel (for your own safety at home). You'll likely have to wear the tray during the day or overnight and reapply for a few weeks at a time. Still, there is no reason that this method can't be almost as effective as an in-office Melbourne teeth whitening session—as long as you follow the directions explicitly.
What are the Dangers for Teeth Whitening Treatments?
For the most part, there really is no danger in a tooth whitening treatment, especially when a dentist gives you the "okay" before you start the application. Unfortunately, there can be some serious side effects if you choose the wrong method or if you apply the gel incorrectly, for too long or too often. This can result in:
- Weakened tooth enamel
- Damaged and/or inflamed gums
- Blistering on the gums
- Severe sensitivity in teeth and mouth
- Bleeding in the stomach and oesophagus
- Irritation to the mouth and digestive track
- Mismatched colours (e.g. crowns, fillings and veneers won't lighten)
