Teeth whitening

Each tooth is made up of an inner dentin layer and hard outer enamel layer that protects the teeth. When staining occurs, another layer gradually builds up on top of the enamel layer. As the foreign material accumulates it forms a pellicle film over the enamel.

A dentist can attempt to scrape this away, brushing can knock some of it out and whitening tooth paste treatments can work even harder on this layer.

The problem is that as the pellicle layer sits on your teeth for years and years the foreign material gets into the enamel.

If the enamel becomes porous, staining agents can work their way down into the tooth where you can't simply scour them away. Most staining is harmless but people find this unattractive.

The controlled use of hydrogen peroxide (the active ingredient) under LED light causes it to breakdown into oxygen and water removing the staining during this reaction. Heat and light is the main catalyst for speed­ ing up the tooth whitening process providing clinical results in a short period of time

frequently asked questions

Can everyone have their teeth whitened?

No, not everyone. However, it may be assumed that teeth whitening will have its effect for 90% of users. Nursing or pregnant woman should not engage in dental bleaching. People who have had recent dental surgery, or suffer gingivitis should also avoid this treatment.

How long will it take before I see results?

You will see a noticeable improvement after your first 20-minute treatment. How stained your teeth are to begin with and the desired whiteness that you would like to achieve will determine how many treatments you will need to have. For best results (3-14 shades lighter) we recommend two to three 20-minute treatments in the same session.

 

How long will results last?

Your teeth become stained in the first place due to lifestyle, whether by consuming certain foods, beverages or smoking. With the proper care, your treatment can last 6-12 months. We recommend a Touch up Treatment within 1-4 weeks of your initial appointment then every 3 months to maintain your results and keep your white smile.

Why is this different to take home whitening kits currently available at my supermarket, phar­macy, etc?

  1. Ingredients and application protocol is very similar to what dentists use, but administered at a safe and effective dose to be used by beauty professionals. It is a salon professional and salon affordable treatment, administered in a controlled environment.

  2. The hydrogen peroxide is a very active ingredient, formulated  with the highest quality & standards. This system is designed to help rebuild enamel and reduce risk of sensitivity, while giving great easy and fast results.

 

How is this different to laser treatment?

Laser treatments are administered by dentists. The concentration of hydrogen peroxide is a lot stronger and the procedure generally takes 1-1½ hours. Laser treatments are very effective but can also be invasive

Will whitening damage my teeth or gums?

Our formulation of hydrogen peroxide is non acidic and breaks down into oxygen and water to ensure safe penetration of the tooth enamel to find stains and oxidise them clear. It ensures a precise level of dosing which combined with its unique formulation prevents potential gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.

What about crowns, veneers, fillings, etc?

Only natural tooth structure will whiten. Dental restorations such as crown, veneers, etc. will not lighten beyond their original shade but help restore them to their original shade.

 

Can I drink, eat or smoke after treatment?

The teeth become quite porous during the whitening process so they are more likely to uptake any stains ingested. For best results try to avoid any food or drink which could stain for 24 hours.

What about medicine stained, grey or heavily stained teeth?

These types of stains are generally more difficult to whiten and will generally require more treatments than average. Whilst it will definitely improve and boost the whiteness of these teeth you may wish to consult your dentist about veneers.

 

I have white spotting on my teeth, will this disappear?

White spotting is usually the result of fluorosis or calcium deposits. Teeth whitening will not remove these, however, it will whiten the surrounding teeth which may balance out your overall teeth colouring.

 

Will it hurt?

Some people experience temporary tooth sensitivity or nonspecific low sensitivity in their gums, lips or tongue. In most cases these symptoms are considered minor and will subside within 48 hours
