Tooth Whitening and Bleaching

Tooth Whitening and Bleaching

The active ingredient in the bleaching gel is a time-release form of peroxide, an enamel-safe ingredient used for tooth whitening. The custom fitted bleaching tray allows close contact of the whitening gel with the teeth to get at stains beneath the surface. Generally, you can expect a two to three shade change in the whiteness of your teeth. The bleaching gel will not whiten crowns, veneers or fillings. Final results vary from patient to patient depending on tooth structure, stain severity and eating and drinking habits. If your teeth have mineral stain, antibiotic stain or white spots, your bleaching may whiten some of these areas more than others. Do not have any bonding done on your teeth until 10 days after you finish bleaching.

Results typically last one to three years before any noticeable relapse in shade occurs. Your habits and oral hygiene will affect your results. Teeth will restain faster after whitening if exposed to substances such as tobacco, coffee, tea dark colas and red wine. It is not recommended that you bleach your teeth while pregnant or nursing.
