About the process
Looking after your teeth and gums is the key to keeping your smile white, healthy and bright.Teeth whitening is a way of lightening the colour of your natural teeth and, in doing so, making your smile more attractive.
Several factors can cause your teeth to lose their natural brightness over time. These include:
- natural changes in the colour of your dentine (the inner part of your teeth) as you get older
- a diet, rich in food and drink with strong colourings, such as carrots, oranges, chocolate, tea, coffee and wine
- smoking, which can make your teeth appear yellow
- tartar (plaque that builds up and hardens on your teeth, usually as a result of poor tooth-brushing habits)
- tooth fillings used for root canal treatments
- medicines such as antibiotics when your teeth are developing
With teeth whitening there’s no need to remove the hard coating (enamel) that protects your teeth, as whitening uses bleaching methods.
What is the procedure
Your dentist will show you on a chart what shade of white your teeth will be by the end of the treatment. And he or she will give you an idea of how long it will take to achieve the desired results.
You will have impressions taken of your upper and lower teeth. Your dentist will use them to make plastic trays that fit your mouth. These will be used during the treatment to apply the bleaching product to your teeth. Our dentist will apply the bleaching gel to your teeth, also using a special blue light that enhances the whitening process giving immediate results. The appointment may take up to two hours.
Internal bleaching can help lighten the colour of teeth that have darkened as a result of a root canal treatment or this is when the blood vessels and nerves inside your tooth are replaced with a filling. During the process of internal bleaching, space will be made by removing previously placed cement in the tooth. The bleach will placed in this space and will be treated as temporary cement, leaving the bleaching product inside the tooth.
You will need to go back to your dentist after three to seven days to have the temporary filling and bleaching product changed. At each visit, your dentist will also check whether the treatment is working. It may take several visits before the treatment is complete. Satisfactory results can be achieved after two to four visits. At this point, the space is closed permanently with a tooth-coloured filling.
Very few people have brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we get older. Teeth Whitening helps enhance the smile.
Products for whitening usually contain either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The whitening products cannot contain more than six per cent hydrogen peroxide. This is to ensure that the treatment is safe.
When these chemicals break down, they release oxygen. This gets into the hard outer surface of your teeth (the enamel) and whitens them.
Your dentist may offer you a type of external bleaching called laser, or power bleaching. This involves applying the bleaching product on your teeth, and then shining a laser (a very bright light) onto them. The laser is said to speed up the whitening process by reacting with the bleaching product.

AMS recommendation for best results
The time that the whitening effect lasts varies from person to person. You may not need to re-whiten your teeth for up to three years. Much depends on how well you look after your new smile.
Here are some tips.
- If you are a smoker, try to stop smoking.
- Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
- Floss your teeth regularly.
- Limit your intake of food and drink that can stain your teeth, such as chocolate, oranges, tea and coffee. If you do have food and drink that can cause stains, brush your teeth afterwards.
- Have regular check-ups with your dentist.
The amount of whitening varies from client to client and cannot be predicted or guaranteed; but in general use, teeth may lighten anywhere from 6 to 12 shades on the whitening shade guide. The results depend greatly on how discolored the teeth were originally. Yellow or brown teeth, surface stains, and uniformly darkened teeth are easiest to whiten.
The process takes only 30-minutes, (2 – 15-minute applications) to achieve a whiter and brighter smile. It is broken down into two 15-minute applications to allow for maximum gel concentration and light exposure, without being under the light for too long of a period to cause gum irritation.
