Teeth Whitening is a highly effective way of whitening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.
Why Have Teeth Whitening?
There are a number of reasons why you might get your teeth whitened in Cape Town. 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 and red wine. Smoking can also stain teeth. Calculus or tartar can also affect the colour of teeth. Some people may have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains.
Teeth Whitening Process
Professional bleaching is the most common form of teeth whitening. Firstly we will assess if you are able suitable for the treatment. We will put a rubber shield or a gel on your gums to protect the soft tissue. Then we will apply the whitening product to your teeth. The ‘active ingredient’ in the product is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As the active ingredient is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour is made lighter.
The procedure takes about an hour and the whitening lasts up to three years.
