Teeth whitening, is a common procedure in general dentistry but most especially in the field of cosmetic dentistry.

As a person ages teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, the enamel gets dark. Teeth can also become stained by bacterial pigments, food and drink pigments and tobacco. Certain antibiotic medications (like tetracycline) can also cause teeth stains or a reduction in the brilliance of the enamel.

There are many ways to whiten your teeth, most common are: “At home whitening” or (trays system) and “In Office Whitening”, that use light energy to accelerate the process and in about 45 minutes you get the white that you always wanted.

The effects of bleaching can last for several months to years, but may vary depending on the lifestyle of the patient. Factors that decrease whitening include smoking and the ingestion of dark colored liquids like coffee, tea and red wine. So the more you stay away from dark colored food and drinks the more your whitening will last. Touch ups are also beneficial to maintain your teeth color.

Existing restorations (White fillings; porcelain or composite restorations, crowns or veneers) may not whiten at all or evenly during the procedure. Please discuss this with us prior the beginning of the treatment.
