Wish your teeth were a shade whiter than they are now? Our teeth can get discoloured or stained by our daily consumption habits such as smoking cigarettes, drinking tea, coffee or red wine, as well as from certain foods.
Luckily for us, yellow or discoloured teeth can simply be treated with whitening agents. Applied directly on the surface of the teeth, carbamide peroxide treatments can be done at dental clinics or even at home with a teeth whitening dental kit.
While there are many over-the-counter whitening agents, those are of much lower concentration than the ones prescribed by a dentist, and not all discolourations respond to treatment. So to better gauge if you are suitable for the whitening treatment, it is recommended to first have a consultation with a dentist.
AJ Warren Dental Clinic offers general, family, cosmetic and implant dentistry. Start your session with a consultation to figure out the best approach for whitening your teeth. Each teeth whitening session lasts 20 minutes and for a more comprehensive approach, can be complemented with clear aligners or cosmetic veneers. AJ Warren Dental Clinic uses a painless yet effective LED activated light technology system that shows results after just the first session.
You can manage your desired level of whiteness by opting for more sessions after. Once you have attained your desired level of whiteness, you can expect the results to last between 6 to 12 months. How to maintain those pearly whites? You are encouraged to avoid coffee and tea or drink through a straw to avoid staining the teeth. As smoking can affect the effectiveness of whitening results, you may also wish to cut down on smoking.

Save yourself hours in the dental chair! Smile Makers recommend the take-home kit that is easy-to-use, safe and effective. After an examination for suitability, a mould of your teeth will be taken to make a thin, plastic, customised whitening tray. Customised trays allow you to use the minimum amount of gel most effectively, with no mess. The tray and gel just need to be worn for about 30-60 minutes a day and are relatively comfortable — wear it while watching your favourite TV show! There may be some transient sensitivity to cold water but this can be managed.
