Is teeth whitening the right option?

If you’re not happy with the colour of your teeth – you’re not alone. Many people wish to brighten their current smiles. Over time, your teeth can become stained and start to yellow due to diet, medications, ageing, or natural causes. 

Fortunately, Charlestown Dental Centre offers safe and effective teeth whitening solutions for anyone who wishes to have a brighter, whiter smile. 

Benefits of professional teeth whitening

Remarkable results

Despite the wide range of whitening strips and toothpastes being sold nowadays, it is still challenging to achieve the same brilliant results that professional whitening treatments deliver. 

Safe solutions

With professional whitening, you can be confident that your teeth are healthy enough to undergo this treatment. Before performing the procedure, your dentist can have a consultation with you and perform an oral exam to ensure you receive the best solution for your teeth.

The teeth whitening procedure

Teeth whitening is a procedure that can be done in the dentist’s chair. The procedure involves whitening agents being applied to the teeth. 

  • First, your dentist will apply a substance that covers and protects the gums during the procedure. 
  • Then, the whitening agent will be applied directly to the teeth. Some whitening agents are activated by a laser or by heat.* We may repeat this step 3-4 more times depending on the circumstances.
  • Not all whitening procedures can be done in only one appointment. In fact, most patients require 1-3 appointments before they reach their full potential of whiteness. It is very important to follow up with your dentist regarding your cosmetic dental procedures.

*Please make sure to book a consultation with your dentist to clarify which type of procedure will be done.

Frequently asked questions

Can you get your teeth whitened if you have cavities?

We do not recommend whitening your teeth if you have a cavity. If you whiten your teeth with untreated cavities, the bleaching chemicals may irritate the affected tooth.

While having a cavity does not disqualify you from whitening your teeth, it does mean that your dentist will need to treat this cavity before beginning the whitening procedure.

Can you whiten teeth with Invisalign?

Although it is technically possible to whiten teeth while undergoing Invisalign treatment, we recommend waiting until six months after realignment is complete. 

As teeth have greater sensitivity while realigning, whitening treatment may lead to unnecessary complications.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

Teeth whitening costs vary according to the system and number of sessions required to achieve your desired results. Contact us today to book a consultation and we can provide a tailored estimate for your teeth whitening treatment.

How long does the teeth whitening procedure take?

In-office teeth whitening usually takes 30-90 minutes.

How long does teeth whitening last?

Teeth whitening results can last at least 6 months or longer, depending on how well you take care of your teeth, the type of food and beverages you consume and whether you smoke.

To extend results, make an effort to avoid dark food and drinks that may stain your teeth, such as coffee, wine and berries. Combined with proper tooth hygiene and occasional touch-ups, you will be able to get the most out of your treatment.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is safe when done correctly. A multitude of research has demonstrated that teeth whitening procedures performed by professional dentists are completely safe.

Does teeth whitening hurt? 

While teeth whitening treatments don’t tend to cause pain, you may feel discomfort when bleaching agents are applied to sensitive teeth. If you have sensitive teeth, discuss options to minimise pain with your dentist. 

What can you eat after teeth whitening? 

Certain foods and beverages have artificial dyes or natural pigments that can stain your teeth over time, such as:

  • Tobacco
  • Sweets and chocolate 
  • Wine
  • Coffee and tea
  • Carbonated drinks
  • Fruit juices
  • Dark food and curries

While you don’t need to abstain from these foods forever, we recommend avoiding them during the first few days after whitening while your teeth are particularly sensitive.
