Teeth Whitening

Sadly, many of life's favourite treats, such as coffee and tea, take their toll on your teeth. Teeth whitening has become very popular among the general public in recent years. There are various at-home teeth whitening systems available on the market. Even though these systems can make a slight difference in the colour of your teeth over some time, they do not quite have the same instant effect that treatment from a dentist’s office.

Apart from the products that are available for purchase on the market, other more ‘natural’ solutions have claimed to work. Some make slight differences while others are just claims. Some common options you may have heard of include whitening toothpaste, coconut oil pooling, banana teeth whitening and others.

However, at-home dental whitening systems work on a day-to-day basis and usually takes 2 to 3 weeks before you can begin to see results. There are several of these other whitening methods, but they just don't beat professional teeth whitening.

Flash Whitening

For example, Flash Whitening whitens stained teeth by an average of 8 shades, and it only takes an hour. It's fast and affordable, and it has been proven to work. EPIC™ Laser whitening can perform a full-mouth, in-office teeth whitening procedure with an average of 4 to 6 shades in only 20 minutes of treatment time excluding the set-up or take-down time. It is also faster and cheaper than any other in-office whitening system.

Treating sensitive teeth after whitening

Treating sensitive teeth after whitening

The whitening agents can lead to tooth sensitivity. If you experience hypersensitivity after you have begun the treatment, your dentist can reduce the concentration of the whitening product during your procedure. If you are using the at-home system, you may need to take a break from the system.

Switch to a sensitive toothpaste

Sensitive toothpaste is specially formulated to help relieve tooth sensitivity. With continuous use, sensitivity relief products can help alleviate this sensitivity. However, if your sensitivity stems from teeth whitening, it should subside after the treatment is complete.
