Q: What occurs during tooth whitening?
A:During the tooth whitening process, the active ingredient in the bleaching gel, Carbamide Peroxide, is broken down and oxygen enters the tooth enamel bleaching embedded discolored substances (stains). The structure of the tooth is not changed; only the tooth enamel becomes a lighter and whiter shade. Fillings, crowns, bridges and bondings, etc. are not affected. Our LED whitening activation light speeds up the process.
Q: What is Carbamide Peroxide?
A:Carbamide Peroxide is the primary active ingredient or bleaching agent in the professional tooth whitening gel. It is essentially a variation of Hydrogen Peroxide and combined with the unique adherence properties of the specially formulated gel, it provides the chemical reaction required to safely whiten your teeth. We use 18% Bleach gel, . It meets all requirements of a tooth-friendly treatment. The gel has a pleasant mint flavour. The Clinical Pharmacology Classification of Carbamide Peroxide states that there are "No significant interactions", although some tooth sensitivity or minor gum irritation may be experienced, which normally subsides after completion of whitening.
Q: Can I whiten my teeth while I'm pregnant?
A:There has not been sufficient testing done on the effects of tooth whitening while pregnant. Therefore, we recommend that you not use any bleaching system.Tooth whitening is also not recommended for anyone under 18.
Q: What about gum recession?
A:Some persons have gum recession on one or more teeth. Usually the root surface which becomes visible as gums recedes has an appearance which is somewhat darker than the rest of the tooth. This is because root surfaces are not covered by enamel but are instead composed of another naturally darker material called "dentin". The Professional Tooth Whitening method won't effectively lighten dentin. This means that the colour of the root portion of the tooth (which shows where the gum recession has occurred) will not change noticeably as a result of your bleaching efforts.
