When you wake up in the morning, brushing your teeth, has it ever struck you that suddenly you noticed that your teeth are not as bright and white as they were, perhaps growing yellow day by day? No matter how many times you brush them, they are just persistently dull, as if it comes from inside the teeth.
Well, a change in the color of teeth is quite normal. Discoloration of the teeth itself is a natural human body process that occurs as we age. Because of the thinning of enamel, the yellowish color of dentin, an inner structure of the teeth, comes out and causes yellow teeth.
This process, however, may be hastened when we consume foods and beverages that may erode and stain the surface of the teeth, leading to discoloration. One way we can reverse this is by teeth whitening procedure.
Teeth whitening is a commonly practised tooth cosmetic procedure intended for oral aesthetic purposes. The goal of this procedure is to remove surface stains and restore the teeth to their brighter white color.
Whitening of the teeth is achievable in 2 steps, first by physically removing stains attached to the surface of the teeth, then by bleaching the enamel via laser-activated hydrogen peroxide. Laser emission will accelerate hydrogen peroxide breakdown into oxygen and hydrogen, which will seep into enamel and dentin to oxidise minerals in the teeth, producing a white, shiny appearance of the bleached teeth.
Teeth whitening is a safe procedure with minimum side effects. Studies have shown that usage of hydrogen peroxide as a bleaching agent in certain intervals does not cause any structural changes to the teeth. Side effects that patients may experience are temporary sensitivity towards cold and hot food as well as slight discomfort and irritation around the gum.
With our experienced and skilled dentists, White Perfect Dental offers chairside and over-the-counter teeth whitening services at an affordable price. Teeth whitening price varies depending on the treatment chosen and the duration of the treatment. Book a consultation with us today to plan your teeth whitening treatment!
Teeth Whitening is a non-invasive procedure practised all over the world, including Malaysia. The bleaching agent used in the procedure itself is hydrogen peroxide, which is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in low doses for human consumption.
For this procedure, none of the hydrogen peroxides will be consumed, and only the teeth will be exposed to them. However, temporary side effects such as irritation around the teeth and gum as well as sensitivity to heat and cold may occur. Should you have any worries or questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
Yellowing and discolouration of the teeth is a natural body process that happens as we age. Consumption of certain beverages and food like Tea, Coffee, soda, and tobacco, However, may stain, erode, and discolour the teeth faster.
It is recommended to regularly brush your teeth and gargle with mouthwash to remove the stain from the teeth and avoid carbonated drinks, as they may erode the enamel and increase the absorption of colour into the teeth. The application of fluoride to the teeth may also help slow down the yellowing process.
Teeth Whitening in White Perfect has never been easier! A consultation will be scheduled to check the overall oral status and determine whether teeth whitening is required, or an alternative procedure to achieve the same result can be done. There are 2 teeth whitening procedures available, clinic chairside whitening and professional home whitening kit.
For chairside whitening, our experienced dentist will help you deliver a fast whitening procedure by applying whitening gel, activated by our most advanced tool to deliver instant changes in your teeth that are noticeable just after one session. However, side effects might occur as higher doses of hydrogen peroxide are administered. A compliment home care kit will also be provided.
Our professional home whitening kit is a more affordable, gentle, and longer-lasting option to get your confidence in your smile. In principle, home whitening kits work in a similar way to chairside treatment, by applying bleaching gel provided by our dentist to your teeth via a gel tray.
The gel tray will be customised to fit your teeth arrangement, ensuring that gel will be held and applied thoroughly while maintaining comfort at all times. Our whitening kit is also reusable and easy to carry, so you can use them anytime you want. Whichever treatment you choose, rest assured that our skilful dentist will bring confidence to your brighter smile!
No whitening treatment is permanent. How long the whitening effect lasts also varies from person to person and is highly affected by habit. However, in most cases, bleached teeth can remain white for 1 – 3 years before another bleaching is needed. It is not advisable to do chairside treatment often, as it may damage the teeth from high exposure to the bleaching agent.
To maintain the shiny white colour of the bleached teeth, it is recommended to maintain a good oral hygiene routine, especially when the consumption of drinks such as tea, coffee, and carbonated drinks is regular, as they may stain and damage the teeth’s surface. Worry not, our professional dentists will kindly advise you on this!
Teeth whitening procedure cost varies depending on which treatment you choose and the degree of teeth discolouration. Compared to the faster chairside treatment, our professional home whitening kit is considerably more affordable but takes longer for a colour change to be observable.
Also, teeth with a higher degree of discoloration may come out more expensive to be whitened due to the higher amount of bleaching agent required and longer duration of treatment. Nonetheless, strategizing your treatment plan correctly is recommended to reduce your cost. So what are you waiting for? Book an appointment with us to get your charming white smile!
