Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any tooth surface.

Why whiten your teeth?

There are many reasons why you might want to get your teeth whitened. Everyone is unique; and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people are born with brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we age.

Your teeth can also be stained by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, and blackcurrant. Smoking and the use of other tobacco products can also discolour and stain the teeth.

‘Calculus’ or tartar build-up can also affect the colour of your teeth. Some people may have stains under the enamel surface, which can be caused by certain medications or by tiny cracks in the teeth which absorb stains.

Our Teeth Whitening Service in Leederville

Professional bleaching is the most commonly performed method of teeth whitening. Our dental team in Leederville will be able to tell you if you are qualified for the treatment and will look after it if you are. First, your Leederville dentist will put a rubber shield or a gel on your gums to protect them. Then, the whitening product will be applied to your teeth using a specially made tray which fits into your mouth like a mouthguard.

The ‘active ingredient’ that whitens the teeth is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As this ingredient breaks down, oxygen is absorbed into the enamel on the teeth, and the tooth colour lightens.

How long does this take?

The total treatment period is usually three to four weeks. First, you will require two or three visits to your dentist. Your Leederville dental team will need to make a mouthguard and will take impressions for this at your first appointment. Once you start the treatment, you will need to continue at home. This means regularly applying the whitening product from two to four weeks, for 30 minutes to one hour each time.

There are also some new products which can be applied for up to eight hours at a time. This means you can get amazing results in as little as one week.

At-home Care for Whitened Teeth

You can keep your teeth white by limiting the amount of staining food and beverages you consume. Don’t forget, stopping smoking and using other tobacco products can also help prevent discolouration and staining.

Following these tips will help you take care of your teeth:

  • Brush your teeth before sleeping at night and at least one other time during the day, using fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles.
  • Limit sugary foods and drinks intake.
  • Visit your Leederville dental team regularly, as often as recommended.

Frequently Asked
Questions

How long will my teeth stay white?
With proper care, the effects of teeth whitening last up to three years. However, this will vary from person to person. The effect is likely to last longer if you don’t smoke and limit the intake of products that can discolour your teeth. Ask your Leederville dentist for their opinion before you start the treatment.
What about whitening toothpaste? Is it effective?
There are several whitening toothpastes available. Although they don’t improve the natural colour of teeth, they may be effective at removing stains. Therefore, they may improve the overall look of your teeth. These toothpastes may also help the whitening effect last, once your teeth have been professionally whitened.
