Instant teeth whitening is a bleaching process widely used around the world to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentine. Tooth discoloration may result from drinking coffee, tea, cola and red wine; or from smoking. The aging process also can stain and darken your teeth. Shahorla tooth whitening procedure uses the Advanced Power Chairside Lamp – said to accelerate the bleaching process – to activate the 25 percent hydrogen peroxide whitening. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentine to bleach the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged.
20% of people will experience some sensitivity during the procedure. Reasons for sensitivity are:
– Fine cracks in the teeth.
– Toothbrush abrasion (enamel wear).
The sensitivity can last up to 24 hours after treatment. Sensitivity varies from patient to patient depending on the condition of the teeth. Most people only have mild sensitivity for a maximum of 10 hours.
The results are permanent. Over time, you will generate new staining and this will depend on your lifestyle. We recognise that all people will eventually get new stains, which is why we provide you with a home maintenance kit so you can maintain the brightness of your smile for life.
