Teeth whitening is one of the most sought after cosmetic dental procedures in the country. After all, who doesn’t love a gorgeous bright smile? If the whiteness of your teeth has dulled due to age or staining, teeth whitening at Booth Tooth Dental can help you get your pearly whites back.
Types of Teeth Whitening
Typically, teeth whitening is done in two different ways:
- At home whitening with the help of a take-home kit
- In-office whitening where the procedure is done at the clinic
Before starting on the teeth-whitening treatment, whether at home or at the clinic, it is important to first have your teeth checked by your Booth Tooth dentist. We will first assess whether your teeth are suitable for whitening. If you suffer from ailments like gum disease or tooth sensitivity, then these issues need to be treated before commencing the whitening procedure.
Without a proper assessment, it is not possible to rule out side effects such as heightened tooth sensitivity or other issues after the procedure. Hence it is very important that you first undergo a consultation before starting treatment, even if you intend to do it at home.
Our dentists are friendly and understanding. We will help you make the most suitable choice for teeth whitening after considering your specific requirements and medical history.
At Home Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening at home is done using a take-home kit. We first take the impressions of your teeth to create a custom mouth tray. The tray is to be filled with whitening gel and worn over your teeth like a mouth guard.
Our dentist will advise you on how to wear the tray, how long to keep it on etc. If you have any questions at all, you may ask us and we will happily answer all of them.
At home whitening is a relatively slow process, but if you faithfully follow our instructions you will soon be the proud owner of a brighter, whiter smile.
In Office Whitening
Whitening your teeth at the office is a better option because it is faster and you are under our care and observation during the entire time.
This is a relatively simple procedure and can be done within 30 to 90 minutes. Our dentist will start the procedure by first cleaning your gums and teeth. This is followed by the application of protective gel over sensitive areas such as gums and other mouth tissue. The whitening gel is then evenly applied over the teeth.
Using LED lighting, the whitening gel is activated so it can break down the stains and whiten the enamel. The gel may be reapplied a couple of times during the procedure.
After the procedure, we will give you some aftercare guidelines that you need to follow at home.
After the Treatment
You must not consume staining food or drinks up to 24 hours after the treatment. You must also refrain from smoking after the procedure. The whitened teeth can quickly lose its whiteness if you consume strongly coloured foods or start smoking again.
