Teeth whitening FAQs
Why do people consider teeth whitening?
Having a whiter smile is very popular among celebs and movie stars. Everyone wants to feel confident in their smile, so some do this by whitening their teeth. Getting rid of any dark stains gives the impression of a brighter and cleaner smile. People that drink tea, coffee and red wine might want to have their teeth whitened to get rid of any stains the drinks have left behind. People who are of older age may experience their teeth becoming duller and choose to have teeth whitening to bring back their youthful colour.
How long does the whitening last?
The teeth whitening can last a lifetime if taken care of properly. Avoid products that stain your teeth, rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash after having stain-causing food and drinks, brush your teeth twice a day to get rid of all the bacteria left in your mouth and use floss to get in between the gaps of your teeth to prevent excess food build-up. If you start to notice that your teeth are becoming darker then you can simply purchase additional whitening gel.
Is the treatment painful?
You should not experience any pain with the teeth whitening treatment. Some people do experience some sensitivity, but this is only for a short amount of time. If your teeth feel slightly sensitive after the treatment, brush your teeth gently and stay clear of consumables that are very hot or very cold as this can make your teeth feel even more sensitive. Drinking through a straw is the best option if you want to stay hydrated as it keeps the beverage away from your sensitive teeth. We recommend staying away from hot drinks like tea and coffee as this can stain your newly whitened smile.
