Teeth Whitening

Dental Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a safe, non-invasive, and effective treatment to quickly refresh and revive your natural smile. Teeth can lose their natural whiteness for a number of reasons, including diet, ageing, and smoking, but a noticeably brighter smile can be achieved with Dental Teeth Whitening.

At ConfiDental Clinic, our Cosmetic Dentists offer a home teeth whitening system for our patients. Please get in touch with us today to learn more about our Dental Teeth Whitening process and how it can work for you.

What does Home Teeth Whitening involve?

Our home whitening system involves taking impressions of your teeth so that custom-made trays can be constructed. These trays resemble very thin, clear gum shields which you can comfortably wear either awake or whilst sleeping. Once your trays are ready to collect, you will see your ConfiDental Dentist for a brief appointment to check that the trays are well-fitting as well as provide you with the whitening gel.

Then, you are able to carry out the whitening at your own leisure. For the best results, we recommend you wear the trays, with the gel, for around four hours a day over a period of two weeks. However, you can stop sooner or continue longer until you reach your desired shade. You can also top up at any time, making this system more cost-effective than the in-office whitening system.

Your Dentist will advise you to return for a review appointment around two weeks after you begin the whitening treatment, so they can check in with you about the progress.

Is Home Teeth Whitening Suitable for you?

Your cosmetic Dentist at ConfiDental Clinic will be happy to advise you on whether Dental Teeth Whitening will be suitable, and discuss your options during your check-up or free consultation. In general, this teeth whitening system is suitable for most teeth, however, it only works on Tooth enamel. If you have visible Fillings, Veneers, or Crowns, these may need to be replaced following whitening treatment to match your new Tooth shade.

Due to this, many patients opt for teeth whitening before embarking on any restorative treatments. Our Dentist will also check if your whitening trays still fit following any restorative treatment, as it is important that the trays fit snugly to ensure the best results.

Frequently Asked Questions – FAQ

How long does Teeth Whitening last?

The length of time the Teeth Whitening lasts depends on person to person, it can be anything from six months up to three years. If you would like your teeth whitening to last, avoid eating or drinking things that can stain your teeth. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day can help maintain treatment too, as well as home whitening trays as a top up if needed.

How to rehydrate Teeth after Whitening?

Normally, your saliva will keep your teeth hydrated naturally after whitening, as it is filled with the nutrients necessary. However, room temperature water through a straw can help with the issues if needed.

What not to eat after Teeth Whitening?

Avoid the following after teeth whitening:

Tea, Coffee, Red Wine, Fizzy drinks, Soft drinks, fruit juices and alcohol
Food with natural or added colourants such as beef, ketchup, chocolate etc.
Cakes, biscuits, ice cream as this can cause irritation and staining

How Teeth Whitening works?

There are three different types of teeth whitening: home whitening, in-surgery whitening and internal whitening:

Home whitening: teeth impressions are taken to create custom whitening trays in order to fit your teeth properly. You will need to wear the trays daily with bleaching gel and your dentist will give the recommended time to wear them.

A follow up appointment will be scheduled after a few weeks of treatment, to ensure it is working.

In surgery whitening: whitening gel is placed on your teeth and a bright light is used during the process. This takes up to two hours, where the effects of whitening occur a lot faster.

Internal whitening: a whitening agent is placed inside a discoloured tooth after root canal therapy. A drill hole is created, which is then sealed with a temporary filling. After a week, this is then removed and repeated if necessary. After the whitening effect has been completed, the hole is sealed with a tooth coloured filling.

This was my first visit as a new patient at Confidental St Helier & felt quite nervous. I didn’t need to worry though, from booking in at reception & meeting my new dentist was a really good experience. I would highly recommend them.

I am so happy that I had my dental treatment here at St Helier. Dr Zena Al-ansari made it possible for me to smile again after more than 30 years. I had Invisalign fitted as well as other procedures during the course of a year and the care and attention I received was outstanding. Zena is such a lovely friendly dentist who puts you at ease and informs you of your procedure every step of the way. Thank you so much for giving me the confidence to smile again😃
