What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a way to make your teeth look brighter by removing stains and discolouration. At Channon Lawrence Dental, we have two options: getting it done at our office or using a custom DIY kit at home.

How Do Teeth Become Yellow and Discoloured?

Teeth can become discoloured for lots of reasons. Here’s 5 most common causes:

  1. Food and Drink: Things like coffee, tea, red wine, and certain fruits can stain your teeth.

  2. Tobacco: Smoking cigarettes or pipes can cause yellow or brown stains.

  3. Poor Dental Hygiene: Not brushing and flossing regularly can lead to discolouration.

  4. Ageing: As you get older, the outer enamel layer on your teeth wears away, showing the yellow dentin underneath.

  5. Medications: Some medications can cause tooth discolouration as a side effect.

Signs You Need Teeth Whitening

Wondering if you need teeth whitening? Here are some signs it might be time to consider it:

Yellow or Brown Stains

If your teeth have noticeable stains, whitening can help remove them and make your teeth whiter.

Special Occasions

Want to look your best for a wedding, graduation, or other special event? A whiter smile can make a big difference.

Confidence Boost

If you're self-conscious about your smile, whitening can give you a confidence boost.

We don’t recommend teeth whitening for anyone who is pregnant or has untreated dental issues, gum disease, sensitive teeth or cavities. Seek the advice of a dentist before teeth whitening.

How Much Does Teeth Whitening Cost?

Are There Any Side Effects For Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is generally safe, but some side effects can occur, typically right after the treatment. The most common ones include:

Temporary Tooth Sensitivity

Some people might feel a heightened sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks. This usually fades away after a short period.

Irritation of the Gums or Mouth

Some people experience mild irritation in their gums or mouth. This discomfort is typically temporary and resolves on its own.

While these side effects are generally mild and short-term, it's always best to discuss any concerns with your dentist before starting a whitening treatment.

DIY At-Home Teeth Whitening

We offer custom kits for whitening your teeth at home. Here’s how it works:

  • 1) We make trays that fit your teeth perfectly.

  • 2) You get syringes with whitening gel.

  • 3) We show you how to use the kit safely.

Our kits have everything you need to brighten your smile at your own pace, with our support.

Unprofessional whitening can be risky. It can cause gum irritation, tooth sensitivity, and even damage your enamel if not used correctly. Tooth enamel doesn’t repair itself or grow back naturally, which is why it is so important to keep it protected.
