All You Need to Know about Teeth Whitening

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening, also known as teeth bleaching, is a common procedure in dentistry aiming to lighten the natural colour of the teeth without removing teeth or the surface of teeth. Not everybody has bright and white teeth naturally. Ageing, smoking, excessive consumption of products causing stain teeth such as tea, coffee or red wine may also affect the colour of teeth and may lead decolourization.

Decoloured or yellow teeth may cause low self esteem and discomfort. Many people with decoloured teeth complain that they cannot smile freely although they want to, women complain about the inability to wear nude/pale lipsticks due to yellow teeth.

Teeth whitening procedure offers a pain-free and long lasting solution for people who have decoloured teeth.

How is Teeth Whitening Performed?

Length of Teeth Whitening procedure: Teeth whitening may take 1 to 2 hours depending on the condition of the teeth.
Inpatient or Outpatient: Outpatient
Anaesthesia: No need for anaesthesia

MCAN Health’s dentists use the latest technology for teeth whitening procedures.

Your MCAN Health dentist first cleans your teeth thoroughly to remove any remains and tartar on your teeth. Then the shade (colour) of your teeth is recorded by your MCAN Health dentist. To protect your gums from the whitening/bleaching material, your dentist will put a rubber shield or a gel on your gums. After the protection for gums is in place, your dentist will apply the whitening/bleaching compound to the surface of your teeth. Then this chemical will be activated via laser light. This process is done two more times. Then your dentist will wash and rinse your teeth; remove the protection to see the results of whitening by comparing it with previous shade of your teeth. 

Teeth whitening is an easy dentistry procedure with no pain and no need for anaesthesia.
