What Are The Expected Outcomes Of Whitening?

The outcomes of Teeth Whitening can be analyzed in three main categories: aesthetical and psychological.

Health-related Outcomes

Teeth whitening can improve the appearance of your teeth, but it does not offer any health benefits.

However, teeth whitening can help to improve your oral hygiene by making your teeth look cleaner and brighter.

Aesthetical Outcomes

Teeth whitening can address color related issues about your teeth. After the whitening procedure, your teeth will be lighter in color. You will have a brighter and a better looking smile.

How Is Whitening Done?

It is a procedure done to make your teeth whiter using bleaching gel and laser.


At first your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned to remove tartar and obvious stains, then a bleaching gel solution will be applied to the teeth only and to achieve that a rubber dam will be placed around the teeth to protect the gums and the tongue.

Applying The Bleaching Gel

To protect the eyes from the laser, protective goggles will be placed over your eyes. After the bleaching gel is applied, a laser will be applied to your teeth to activate the bleaching agents in the gel.

Removing The Bleaching Gel

After the procedure is done, the gel will be removed. Depending on the application procedure chosen by your dentist, several applications may be needed or just one application may be enough according to the bleaching.

Risks and Complications

While teeth whitening is generally safe, there are some risks and complications to be aware of.

Guidance & Support

After meeting with your dentist at their office during your consultation you express your expectations and the dentist checks the condition of your teeth. They will inform you about their professional opinion while taking your expectations and the condition of your teeth into consideration. Then, photos of your teeth will be taken for a 3D simulation. The size, model and color can be decided by you, and you can even choose the color from the tooth color chart. After deciding, on the first operation day teeth will be scraped and if there is a need for an extraction it will also take place on the first day. Temporary veneers will be put on and your dentist will prescribe you with painkillers and antibiotics. You will stay at the hotel for about 4-5 days. During your stay you will be visited by a wellbeing specialist, and if you’re having any problems your dentist will be contacted. After these 4-5 days, your permanent veneer will be applied and it will be all done.

What To Do Before Whitening?

Your dentist will provide you with instructions on do's and don'ts at first.

  • During your first visit to the dentist office, your teeth will be examined by your dentist and impressions will be made and sent to the laboratory for making trays that fit over your teeth. To prevent any discomfort after the procedure, you should brush your teeth gently and avoid harming your gums, do not floss the day before the procedure. You can eat before the treatment, since you won’t be able to eat for a few hours after the procedure, you may want to eat before your procedure begins.

What To Do After Whitening?

Your dentist will provide you with instructions on do's and don'ts at first.

  • After the procedure, you need to stay away from coloured liquids for at least 2 hours. You should stick to white colored food to prevent any staining for about 2 days. During these 2 days you should choose colorless or white colored toothpaste to brush your teeth gently. You can resume your normal diet after the first 2 days but you should keep in mind that red wine, coffee, and dark colored beverages and food can stain your teeth.


We know you have many questions. Having realistic expectations and deciding to have a dental operation requires information. Here you can find answers to frequently asked questions about the teeth whitening.

It is a procedure done to make your teeth whiter using bleaching gel and laser.
During the procedure your dentist will first clean your teeth thoroughly then apply bleaching gel on your teeth by placing a tray; and then apply laser light to activate the whitening agents in the gel. After the procedure is done, they will clean your teeth from any residual gel.
The procedure can differ in length depending on the method used, but usually lasts shorter than an hour.
The bleaching effect is achieved by carbamide peroxide (or hydrogen peroxide) that is present in the bleaching gel. 10% carbamide peroxide is safe to use and doesn’t damage the enamel of the teeth.
The whitening procedure doesn’t hurt but can cause mild discomfort and some sensitivity in the gums during or after the treatment. These side effects are temporary and will resolve in a few days.
The whitening procedure is not a permanent one. The food and beverages that can cause staining like red wine, coffee, and smoking can fasten the fading of the whiteness in as little as one month. If you are careful, your results will last a year, maybe longer until a touch up is needed.
The whitening amount can vary from patient to patient with no guarantee, although usually your tooth color can be lightened from 6 to 12 shades on the whitening shade guide. Results will depend on the original color and may need additional whitening treatments in order to achieve the desired shade.
If the whitening product is 10% carbamide peroxide or lower, there will be no damage to the hardness or mineral content of the enamel of the teeth. Professional teeth whitening doesn’t cause any permanent damage to the enamel and is safe.
Avoiding food and beverages that can stain the teeth, and also avoiding smoking can help you keep the results longer. Coffee, tea, soda, berries, foods including tomatoes can stain the teeth and you may want to avoid consuming too much of them. If you choose to consume them, you can rinse your mouth and brush your teeth afterwards. Keeping a good oral hygiene routine that is brushing twice everyday, and biannual dental cleaning can help make the results last longer.
Over the counter bleaching kits often take a week or longer to provide noticeable results. Professional dental whitening has a stronger formula that provides faster results.

Problems & Solutions

Whitening can treat multiple problems and many people are good candidates for it. Here, you can find answers for different complaints.

The existing dental work that is made of ceramic or composite resin materials are resistant to the bleaching process, therefore will not change color. This might result in mismatch of the dental work with your natural teeth. If your dental work is stained, you might need a dental treatment prior to your whitening appointment.
Some people think getting the teeth as white as possible is the best and some think it looks unnatural. It is possible to whiten your teeth to your liking, and most cases the optimal shade of white that will fit your complexion is what matches to the whites of your eyes. However, you should discuss it with your dentist and be on the same page about the level of whitening.
Who doesn’t like coffee? However, to preserve the whitening treatment’s effects, you need to avoid dark-colored foods and beverages, unfortunately they include coffee, that could stain your teeth for at least 48 hours. If you like iced coffee, you can use straw for the coffee to bypass the teeth to limit the staining, the same goes for other colored or carbonated drinks as well.
