What is tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening is a highly effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without adversely affecting any of the tooth’s surface. It can make a huge improvement to your smile.

Why would I need my teeth whitened?

There are a number of reasons why you might wish to get your teeth whitened.
– Everyone is different; and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people have brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we get older.
– Your teeth can also be stained on the surface through food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine and blackcurrant. Smoking can also stain teeth.
– Tartar can also affect the colour of teeth. Some people may have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics such as Tetracycline.

How do I use the Teethwhite Kit?

The Kit comes complete with all components necessary to produce your mouth pieces. Once you have made them, whitening gel is inserted into them and they are placed in your mouth. The gel will spread evenly over each tooth. The mouthpieces are worn, for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight to achieve quicker results), until the desired level of whitening is reached.

How does it work?

Teethwhite’s whitening gel will remove most stains with a gentle sustained release action which oxidises (bleaches) stains within your teeth. Throughout the process the tooth structure remains unchanged. The active ingredient penetrates the enamel and acts on the dentine inside to break down organic deposits into smaller lighter particles which lighten the overall colour of the teeth.

How long will the results last?

By using our top up gels for maintenance once a month the results will be permanent.Individual characteristics and lifestyles will determine the required frequency of top up applications although Teethwhite has found that wearing the mouthpiece overnight once a month is enough.

Warning – Overuse of Carbamide Peroxide can result in your tooth enamel becoming transparent. Teethwhite recommends at by toping up once a month is adequate and safe.

What do I get in the Kit?

6 treatments of Whitening Gel
Two Mouthpieces
One Mouthpiece Carry Case
Instruction Guide

When can I expect to see the results?

Most people see results after only three or four days of continuous use. The desired level of whitening is often reached within 7 – 10 days of beginning to whiten. That said, individual characteristics and lifestyle will ultimately determine the speed of results.

Will the Teethwhite Kit work for everyone?

The Kit is most effective on healthy unrestored teeth. Continued use will achieve the desired results and where bad staining has occurred the teeth can lighten as much as twelve shades. Although surface stain removal will occur on most artificial dental products (ie crowns bridges etc) they will not lighten any more than their original colour.

Can I wear my mouthpiece overnight?

Teethwhite actually recommends that you wear your mouthpiece over night as less saliva is produced whilst we are sleeping.

How many applications will I get out of each syringe?

3 upper and 3 lower treatments.

What is the difference between using the Teethwhite Kit and having my teeth whitened by my dentist?

The only difference is the cost. Dentists tend to charge between £250 and £700 for the exact same process and technique.

Is it safe?

Over a decade of clinical research in the USA indicates that Carbamide Peroxide is completely safe, however, Teeth White recommends that pregnant women, nursing mothers and anyone taking any form of medication consult their GP prior to whitening their teeth.

Warning – Be aware of Teeth Whitening substitutes other than Carbamide Peroxide & Hydrogen Peroxide as they could have adverse effects to your teeth.

I have bought many over the counter treatments and they have not worked, why is Teethwhite any different?

The active ingredient in Teethwhite is Carbamide Peroxide which is a bleaching agent. Most over-the-counter treatments contain little or no bleaching agents and therefore they have poor results. Some over-the-counter treatement can be abrasive and therefore damaging to teeth.

What does the gel taste like?

The gel has a subtle mint flavour.

Can my son/daughter use it?

It depends on their age. We advise persons under 16 yrs old not to whiten their teeth unless they are under the supervision of a dentist.

I have slight tooth sensitivity in a couple of my teeth. Is that normal?

Temporary sensitivity is quite common. As your teeth become accustomed to the gel you will notice less sensitivity. You can treat sensitivity by placing a small amount of desensitising toothpaste, such as Sensodyne Total Care F, into your mouthpiece and wearing it for around 15 minutes prior to whitening.

All sensitivity should cease when you are not whitening your teeth.

Aside from sensitivity are there any other side effects?

There have been reports of discomfort in the gums, a sore throat or even white patches on the gum line but these are all very rare. These symptoms are temporary and should disappear within a few days of ceasing whitening.

If any of these symptoms continue you should consult your dentist.

I have a crown. Will your product whiten my crown?

Stain removal may occur on artificial dental products but they will not whiten any more than their original colour. As the other teeth lighten gradually you can choose to cease whitening or you can continue whitening and have your crown replaced to match your new whiter smile.

Can a single tooth which has had root canal treatment be whitened?

Yes. Many dead teeth discolour after a root filling. If the tooth has been root treated, the canal (which previously contained the nerve) may be reopened. The whitening product is applied working from the inside to whiten the tooth. Consult your dentist for further details of this treatment.
