Professional teeth whitening in brief
Of course, getting whiter teeth and a brighter smile is generally perceived as an improvement. It certainly can make many people feel better about themselves. Today, we wanted to look into the mechanics of various types of teeth whitening, so you know what is involved when you look into professional teeth whitening.
Professional or Over The Counter
The first important choice you will have to make, is whether to trust an Over The Counter product, or to ask your qualified dentist to help you with teeth whitening. To make a well informed choice, it’s important to double check the information you receive.
It goes without saying that, as experienced and qualified dentists and dental hygienists/oral health therapists, we will always be able to give you clear and transparent recommendations about professional teeth whitening.
Bleaching or whitening toothpaste
There are two types of teeth whitening solutions, and a popular one is based on bleaching. Bleaching changes the colour of your tooth enamel. It removes stains from the surface, and stains deeper in your teeth. The bleaching solutions come in OTC kits, and often use carbamide peroxide.
Depending on the product you buy, different concentrations of the chemical will be used. Alternatively, certain toothpaste brands claim to be a teeth whitening solution, and they generally contain a rough material that “scrapes” off the surface stains. It’s a polishing solution that is often promoted as the easy DIY solution.
