The process of removing stains and discolouration from teeth and improving their colour through a bleaching process to make them look “whiter”. For heavily stained teeth, a procedure as simple as a scale and polish from our hygienist can significantly improve their appearance. Yet again here at Boyadjian Dental Clininc, we are moving parallel to advanced high-tech tools which produces the safest ray ,the plasma ray to do this very simple cosmetic treatment in less than an hour.
How much whiter?
This varies from individual to individual. Some people respond very well to teeth whitening and have dramatically whiter teeth as a result, whereas others may notice very little difference. We will be able to advise you on the likely results given your teeth.
Does it hurt? Any side effects?
Majority of people experience no pain or sensitivity with their teeth. However, some people will experience some kind of sensitivity either during and/or after the initial treatment. This is usually described by patients as sporadic, sharp shooting pains coming from their teeth. This should settle down after approximately 48 hours though. In such cases, we will give you a special gel or mousse to apply to your teeth to help with the sensitivity. It is advisable to avoid hot or cold food and drinks within the first 48 hours of your whitening treatment.
PROTECTION FACT you should know about ...
We isolate your gums and lips with a protective material in order to avoid any potential damage or burning of your soft tissue. Home whitening kits usually have a low concentration of peroxide so that there is less chance of any damage occurring BUT recently, certain stores have attracted media attention with horror stories of people with badly burnt lips and gums. It’s for this reason that teeth whitening is a procedure that should always be carried out under the supervision of a dentist.
