Overtime it`s common for our teeth to become discoloured from regular consumption of coffee, tea, red wine, staining foods, smoking as well as the ageing process. This can result in teeth looking dull, dark and aged. This can be significantly reversed with the use of professional whitening treatments at Top Smile Clinic. Teeth whitening are one of the most commonly done dental treatments. This procedure takes care of the stains we accumulate over time and gives us back the confidence to smile. You can either make an appointment with your dentist for professional in-chair whitening or visit the dentist for a do-it-yourself kit. Teeth whitening are a simple and safe procedure and an effective way to rejuvenate your smile. COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Teeth whitening specifically works on tooth enamel. It doesn't change the colour of dental work such as crowns and bridges, veneers or fillings, although it may lift stains from their surfaces.
Studies of teeth whitening products using 10% carbamide peroxide showed no effect on the hardness or mineral content of a tooth's enamel surface.
Most stains can be removed using this procedure. However, there are times where a certain patient’s teeth don’t respond like they should or a particular stain won’t come out. When this is the case, we offer dental veneers that can be placed on top of stained teeth to improve their appearance.
There can be a feeling sometimes of minimal heat. This is the usual cause of discomfort. On rare occasions tingling or sensitivity during and after may occur with some patients. On average 90% of patients experience no discomfort.
It is advised to stay away from coloured food such as red wine, curry, coffee, cola, dark sauces, berries etc. for 3 days after the whitening treatment. After 72 hours you can continue with your usual diet.
