Do you want a white and attractive smile? So let’s start our conversation about the teeth whitening procedure

teeth whitening procedure

involves bleaching your teeth to lighten the colour of the enamel.

The main ingredients used in tooth whitening products are the chemicals hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The chemicals usually come in a gel, which is applied to your teeth. Sometimes a light is used too.

If the problem causing the yellowing is deep inside your teeth, then a whitening gel applied to the outside of your teeth won’t make your teeth whiter.


What causes discoloured teeth?

The outside of your teeth can be stained when you:

drink tea, coffee or red wine

eat food such as spices, berries or beetroot

smoke cigarettes

The white enamel layer on the outside of your teeth can also wear away as you get older. This exposes the dentine layer underneath. This is a yellowish colour and causes your tooth to look yellower.

you took certain medicines, such as the antibiotics tetracycline or doxycycline, as a young child 

When might I need teeth whitening procedure?

If your teeth are stained or discoloured, you might want to whiten them.

Risks of teeth whitening procedure 


– Sensitivity of the teeth and gums, particularly if using one of the higher-strength whitening agents.

– Gum irritation.

– Bleaching results cannot be guaranteed and will vary depending on your age, lifestyle, genetics and the initial colour and condition of your teeth.

– If bleaching agents seep into your tooth through a crack or unfilled cavity, it can be extremely painful and cause internal tooth damage that may require further treatment such as a root canal.

– You may also see uneven results. This is particularly the case if you are using whitening strips and have crooked or overlapping teeth. This is because the strips are not able to ensure that every part of the enamel is reached, which can leave you with some patches that are whiter than others.

– Teeth whitening is not a permanent fix and how long results will last will vary depending on your age, genetics and lifestyle. Smoking and consuming food/drink that contains tannins – such as red wine, coffee and oranges – can cause stains to return quicker.

– Not all stains can be addressed by teeth whitening. Teeth that have suffered trauma from the inside, have been affected by fluorosis and those with inorganic stains may not be affected by whitening at all. 

– Over-whitening. Some people get a little obsessed with trying to maintain the same level of brightness and over-bleach their teeth which irritates and in some cases, pain.
