What you need to know about DIY Teeth Whitening
A take home bleaching kit is another method utilising a tray, which is moulded to fit the teeth. Impressions of the teeth are taken by us which is then sent to a lab to make up bleaching trays.
The tray is filled with the teeth whitening gel and put in place, and needs to be in contact with the teeth for 40 minutes.
Q: Is the treatment safe?
A: Yes. Clinical studies have shown that bleaching with carbamide or hydrogen peroxide under the supervision of a dentist is safe for your teeth and gums.
Q: How does tooth whitening work?
A: The active ingredient (either carbamide or hydrogen peroxide) is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and the stains are “dissolved “.
Q: What are the side effects?
A: For the majority of the patient there are none. However, some will experience temporary sensitivity (dull or sharp, sensitivity to hot or cold). This will subside after several hours of ceasing the treatment.
