about this treatment.

Have you got a special occasion coming up? Or do you just want to feel confident and at your best with a brighter smile? Teeth whitening is one of the most effective ways you can improve your natural smile, and we’re thrilled that we’re now offering it at well:o.

Why do our teeth get stained?
Teeth get stained for a variety of reasons, and the success of whitening depends largely on the type of staining present.

‘Extrinsic staining’ refers to staining caused by external factors such as tea, coffee, cigarettes, red wine and some mouthwashes (which contain chlorhexidine). It’s the most common form of staining and it only affects the outer surfaces of the teeth. Extrinsic staining can be removed with a GBT hygiene appointment.

‘Intrinsic staining’ refers to stain ‘inside’ the tooth. This is discolouration that is incorporated into the tooth, when the tooth is developing, or when the tooth has erupted. This type of staining can’t be removed during a GBT hygiene appointment. For internal staining, we have to rely on tooth whitening to enhance the colour of the teeth.

FAQs

How does whitening work?

Teeth are whitened by the use of a gel concentrate placed in trays worn over your teeth. The whitening gel breaks down stains through oxidisation. It interacts with the tooth surface by removing surface staining and blemishes, all the while working internally within the tooth surface, to brighten their shade overall.

How long does it take?

With Boutique Whitening, between 3-6 weeks.

How long will the effects last?

Teeth will appear whiter for up to 3 years and you can use top ups every 6 or so months. Teeth whitening treatments offer a dazzling smile, but the results aren’t permanent. Over time, without intervention, the colour of your newly whitened teeth will gradually revert to their previous shade. How long the whitening lasts partly depends on your lifestyle. Individuals who smoke or frequently consume food and drink that stains teeth — such as tea, coffee, red wine and curry — may benefit from more regular teeth whitening touch-ups after their initial treatment, for example every 3 to 4 months. If you’re not regularly consuming staining food and drink, you might want a touch-up every 6-12 months. Ask your dental professional about the optimal frequency for whitening touch-ups. They can take into account your habits and enamel condition, to recommend the most suitable whitening maintenance schedule for a lasting, brighter smile.

What should I avoid during my tooth whitening treatment?

For best results, it’s worth going easy on staining food and drink like coffee, red wine and curry.

Is it safe, does it hurt?

Boutique Whitening is a safe way to whiten your teeth, but there are some contraindications, which your dental professional will discuss with you. Some sensitivity can be experienced – it normally settles after 48 hours.

Are there any risks?

The main side-effect of teeth whitening is sensitivity. Up to 70% of people who have teeth whitening will experience some form of sensitivity, from mild discomfort to severe pain.  Some people may also feel slight irritation of the gums or lips. Both of these effects are temporary and will resolve, given a little time, after stopping or finishing your treatment. 

Will I end up with a fake looking ‘Hollywood’ smile?
Dentist-supervised home-whitening is a gradual process, so you can decide quite easily when you are happy with the shade of your teeth and when you would like to stop the process. With teeth whitening, even when the teeth become very white, they should still look natural and pleasing without looking fake. The fake ‘Hollywood’ effect is often down to the use of overly white porcelain crowns or veneer, which are more opaque and less natural looking than your own teeth.

Does Whitening whiten crowns, bridges, veneers, and implants?

Whitening only works on natural teeth. Your dentist can replace crowns and veneers to the new shade of your whiter natural teeth.

Coconut oil pulling, bicarbonate of soda, charcoal… do home remedies work?

There is no evidence to show that any of these products whiten your teeth. Bicarbonate soda is a versatile ingredient and has many uses from kitchen cleaning to removing stubborn carpet stains. Teeth-wise however, it may do a fabulous job in lifting the red wine or coffee stains from the tooth surface, as will charcoal toothpaste, but they are abrasive so they can damage the surface of your teeth.
Enamel will never regenerate once it wears away.
