What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening refers to restoring the tooth’s color by removing its dirt and debris. In simpler words, every product used to clean teeth like mouthwash or toothpaste is considered a whitener. However, teeth whitening in terms of dentistry means using methods more complicated than that that can whiten your teeth.

Teeth whitening is a moderate or substantial solution that improves the brightness and whiteness of the smile. It can be professionally administered during one-hour whitening sessions at a dental office or you can find home-use bleaching kits. It should be noted that the home-use bleaching kits aren’t as effective and may contain abrasive materials that damage your teeth.

It should also be acknowledged that teeth whitening is not a permanent discoloration. Think of the way women apply their makeup, they put their makeup on, and when the colors of the makeup fade away, they do a “touch-up”. The same theory works in teeth whitening. It is a “touch-up” of the teeth and for it to remain whitened, you should repeat the process several times.

What causes tooth staining?

  • Age: Of course, there exists an interrelationship between what color the teeth have and somebody’s age. Getting older also means that your teeth will become darker, due to the stain accumulation. It is also to be acknowledged that the younger you are the easier it is for your teeth to be affected by the whitening.
  • Starting color: We all have a certain inborn tooth color that fluctuates from yellow-brownish to greenish-gray, a color that becomes more enhanced over the years. Yellow-brown is more responsive to whitening than greenish-gray is.
  • Translucency and thinness: These are both genetic traits than become more enhanced with age. Whilst all teeth show some translucency, some are more opaque and thick that have an advantage.
  • Eating habits: It is a known fact that drinks like wine, coffee, tea, and coca-cola can affect the color of your teeth. However, what most people do not know is that even other foods like carrots or oranges or any other deeply-colored food or beverage cause staining over the years.
  • Smoking habits: Do we need to add anything? Nicotine affects the teeth by leaving on them brown deposits that turn soon enough into marks and discoloration because they get soaked into the tooth structure.
  • Drugs/ chemicals: The use of drugs such as tetracycline or fluoride can cause deformations of the teeth. Tetracycline usage produces dark grey stains which can be hard to remove. On the other hand, using mouthwash that contains fluoride can cause discoloration that looks like muffled white marks on the teeth.
  • Grinding: Most commonly caused by stress, teeth grinding can be the reason behind teeth cracking and chipping and also coax the biting edges to darken.
  • Trauma: Falls and other injuries can cause chipped and cracked teeth, which become a deposit for stains.

What are the risks of teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is considered to be a safe procedure if it is followed as directed. Nevertheless, certain risks exist that you should know:

  • Sensitivity:

Teeth whitening becomes the reason for hot or cold food, biting pressure, and touch of the teeth. Though unlikely to happen during in-office whitening it is still a risk to be considered. The people at greater risk are those with gum recession or cracks in their teeth. Whitening sensitivity can last up to two days, but in some rare cases, it may even persist for up to a month.

  • Gum irritation:

Research has shown that over 50% of people who use peroxide whiteners experience some degree of gum irritation. This irritation can only last up to a few days.

  • Technicolor teeth:

Dental restoration like bonding, dental crowns, or veneers are not affected in any way by teeth whitening, so they can keep their color while the teeth around them are whitened. This, however, results commonly in what is called “technicolor teeth”.

How to maintain your teeth whitening results?

To extend the longevity of whitened teeth, the following steps should be taken:

  • At-home maintenance whitening: Performed at least once a year.
  • Avoiding dark-colored beverages and food: At least one week after whitening.
  • Sipping dark-colored beverages with a straw.
  • Practicing good oral hygiene- brushing twice a day and flossing after meals.

What are teeth whitening techniques?

In our clinic we offer three ways of teeth whitening, all depending on your wants and needs:

  1. In the dentist’s office under the supervision of the dentist in only one hour with a special lamp.
  2. Whitening at home: In such cases, teeth whitening splints are made, as well as a copy of the patient’s mouth, in which the whitening teeth splints are placed. The process of applying teeth whitening takes place however for several days at home.
  3. The third and most ideal way of teeth whitening is a mix of both first methods. The patient should stay under the dentist’s special lamp for one hour and then use the teeth-whitening toothpaste for a few days at home.

Why would I need my teeth whitened?

There is a list of reasons why you would need your teeth whitened. However, we will be mentioning only some of them below:

  • Very few people have incredibly white teeth.
  • Tooth discoloration is affected by age- the older, the darker.
  • Your teeth can be stained by colored food or drinks.
  • Smoking.
  • “Calculus”- caused by particular antibiotics or tiny cracks located on your teeth.

What does the teeth whitening procedure include?

The most commonly used method for teeth whitening is called bleaching. For this treatment though, the dental staff will examine and supervise you in continuity and they will lastly inform you if you are suitable or not for this kind of treatment.

  1. Placing a rubber shield or a gel in your gums to protect them.
  2. Applying the whitening product to the surface of the teeth. This can be done with the help of a specifically made tray that should fit into your mouth.
  3. The product is compounded of an active ingredient, which most of the time might be hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. After this active ingredient breaks down, oxygen starts getting into the enamel of the teeth making the tooth color brighter and clearer.

What is the lasting period of the teeth whitening procedure?

The complete teeth whitening procedure takes from three to four weeks to be completed. The first step is the dentist appointment which will be two or three different ones. The staff will need to create a mouthguard, this is the reason why they will need to take an impression, on the very first visit.

Once the treatment procedure begins at the dental office, it will have to continue at home also. The treatment at home involves applying a whitening product over two to four weeks, in continuity. Each application last from thirty minutes to a full hour, at a time.

Is teeth whitening a safe procedure?

The teeth whitening procedure is commonly used among the wide public exactly because it is very effective and quite safe. It should be noted, however, that the whole efficiency and safety of the procedure depends on the manner it’s done and its continuity. For the treatment to work right it is also important that the patient follows the instructions given by the dentist after the end of the treatment.

Another fact to be noted is that the overuse of the whitening product or the use of concentration whitening at home brings an increased sensitivity, gum irritation, or enamel erosion.

The treatment at the dentist’s office is a procedure performed by specialized staff so that complications can be prevented- they contain 25 to 40 percent hydrogen peroxide and stay on the patient’s teeth for a shorter amount of time.

Who is the right candidate?

Despite being a very safe procedure, teeth whitening isn’t a procedure for everybody. Certain categories cannot have teeth whitening, which are the following:

  • Little children:

Children who have still their primary teeth present can in no way have a teeth whitening since their teeth, gums, and jaws are yet in their developing phase.

  • Pregnant women and nursing mothers:

Seeing as the teeth whitening chemicals can pass onto the babies, bot pregnant women and nursing mothers cannot have a teeth whitening done.

  • Cavities, gums diseases, or exposed tooth roots:

The rule of thumb is that teeth whitening is discouraged by oral conditions such as gum diseases, cavities, worn enamel, or gum recession. That is why these conditions should be treated before acting on and having teeth whitening.

  • Allergies/ Sensitivities:

Your dentist should be informed of any tooth sensitivities because it might be a case of not being able to have teeth whitening done. Also, the dentist should be informed about peroxide allergies which are an absolute no to having the teeth whitening treatment, seeing as peroxide is the active ingredient in the whitening system and structure.

Frequently asked Questions

Results of teeth whitening are, of course, subjective and vary from one person to another. Many of the patients are immediately content with the first result, while others may be disappointed. Before starting any whitening treatment, you should ask your dentist for a realistic idea of the results so you will know what to expect and if you want to go on with the treatment or not.

It is important that you understand and respect the individual limit and not to try and push the teeth whitening process more than prolonged whitening or excessive use of laser. Otherwise, adding to the risk of deterioration of the tooth structure, the additional benefit that you may notice will also be lost within a few weeks.

The result of the teeth whitening treatment, depending on the care and oral hygiene can be maintained for many years. In the first 15 days after the end of the procedure, five to eight percent of the result is lost. This loss happens due to the restoration of dehydration caused during the teeth whitening process and it is the factor that makes teeth look a little whiter than they are.

Afterward, the color starts stabilizing for a while and then begins to slowly decline. To maintain the initial effect of whitening, it is necessary to apply the splints at home as recommended by the dentist.

  • Continuous monitoring: during the treatment.
  • Avoiding dark foods and beverages: do try to avoid foods such as beets and carrots or drinks like red wine, whiskey, tea, coffee, and coca-cola.
  • Maintaining good oral hygiene: brush teeth with a whitening toothpaste twice a day, floss after every meal, and use a chlorhexidine-free mouthwash after every meal and at bedtime.

Teeth whitening does not work, unfortunately, on dentures, crowns, filling, or veneers.
