The main ingredient in all teeth whitening products is hydrogen peroxide. This hydrogen peroxide turns into water and oxygen. The oxygen penetrates the enamel and almost all types of stains are lifted out of the porous enamel. Measured results of testing are indisputable. In short, the whitening gel is activated by the moisture within the mouth and it is in this activated state that it releases the oxygen to the teeth and the whitening process begins. The power source speeds up the whitening process.
There are many causes. The most common include genetics, aging, consumption of staining substances (smoking, coffee, tea, colas), tetracycline (antibiotic) staining, excessive fluoride, and old fillings. Whitening toothpaste can remove stain that is on the outside of the teeth. This is called extrinsic staining, (external staining). However, whitening toothpaste will not change the colour or intrinsic staining, (internal staining), of the teeth. That is why teeth whitening is so popular.
A whitening gel is placed over your teeth. As the active ingredient in the whitening gel is broken down, molecular oxygen enters the enamel and bleaches the coloured substances. The structure of the tooth is not changed; only the tooth colour is made lighter and whiter.
Almost anyone over the age of 15, who has natural teeth, who wants a more confident vibrant smile. However, for those that are pregnant, or nursing mothers, you should contact your doctor before using any teeth whitening products.
This depends on how well you maintain oral hygiene and what you consume. We normally advise that results will last up to 2 years, however, for smokers, coffee drinkers, etc, this time will be reduced. However, one short application will bring the whiteness back.
Research continues with regard to teeth whitening products and procedures. However, research data to date, shows there is no risk to the enamel of the teeth, other than the advised 24 hours of temporary sensitivity.
The whitening products and services will not whiten crowns, veneers, bridges, fillings. However, they will clean them to their original colour. Nevertheless, it must be noted, that the users own teeth could become whiter than the colour of their veneers, crowns, bridges or white fillings, so the whitening would be stopped at the point where the teeth match the colour.
People with periodontal disease, (gum disease), or excessive caries, (cavities), should be treated for these conditions prior to using any form of teeth whitening products, or services. The active ingredient in the gel itself is safe, but if prolonged sensitivity to the soft tissue, (gums), does occur for more than 24 hours – it is normally due to an existing problem. GC Tooth Moose that we can supply free of charge is recommended for reducing oral sensitivity after Teeth Whitening and a Scale & Polish. (This is not suitable for patients who have an allergy to milk protein) For the small percentage of users who experience increased sensitivity to hot and cold, or minor gum irritations, GC Tooth Mousse can relieve any sensitivity.
It is advisable that all clients have a Check-Up and a Scale & Polish preferably within the last four to eight weeks, but not within one week before a teeth whitening appointment, and fillings should be done prior to teeth whitening.
This process is self administered - its main ingredient is carbamide peroxide which decomposes into hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient in all teeth whitening products. The usual strength of carbamide peroxide a home bleaching kit is 20% and the decomposition rate is a third. Therefore, a 20% carbamide peroxide home bleaching kit will release only about 7% of hydrogen peroxide.
A bleaching tray must be worn for several hours per day (or overnight), for some weeks, for the effects of the teeth whitening process to take place. Many Home Bleaching Kits sold by other dentists cost more than our Rapid One Hour ‘In-surgery’ treatment.
