Teeth whitening

Research has shown that one of the first things people notice when they meet someone new is their smile. Teeth Whitening has become an accessible and relatively easy way to instantly improve appearance, create a positive first impression and achieve a more youthful and radiant appearance

Teeth can become discolored over a period of time. Discoloration can be caused by several factors including ageing, smoking, consumption of staining foods and beverages, staining caused by medication and hereditary factors.

Safe and effective methods of achieving a whiter, brighter smile are now readily available.

We are able to offer a range of teeth whitening options to help enhance, improve and brighten your smile:

 

Types of Tooth Whitening

There are two basic options for smile whitening:

  • In-office tooth whitening: instant whitening results using light-activated gel to brighten teeth. In-office tooth whitening gives immediate whitening results after treatment. At Patong Smile Dentacl Clinic, we utilize Laser teeth whitening, ZOOM! Advanced Power professional tooth whitening system, LED( New Advance) and Opalescence Boost teeth whitening. We are the only one dental clinic that has many technologies for in-office tooth whitening systems. So that you and dentist can select the technique which is the most suitable for you.
  • At-home whitening systems: Each person will receive customized trays and prescription opalescence whitening gel done at home. At-home tooth whitening systems need to be done as directed by your dentist over a period of time to attain the result warranted.

 

The Teeth Whitening Procedure (In-Office)

Procedure for In-office Tooth Whitening Treatment
  1. First Evaluation and pre-whitening tooth shade selection
    1. the pre-whitening tooth shade is selected from array of tooth-shaped porcelain tabs (each of which is a slightly different color) and compare each tab with their patient’s teeth for post-treatment comparison
    2. professional dental scaling and polishing is usually done before the bleaching treatment is performed, but it is optional if the patient's teeth is already cleaned
  2. Isolate Teeth to be Whitened
    1. A dental dam is placed to isolate teeth and prevent the whitening agent from irritating or damaging soft oral tissues
  3. Place Eye Protection for protection
  4. Apply whitening gel
    1. teeth is dried and the bleaching compound applied
  5. Expose whitening gel to laser light / Zoom light /or LED light
    1. The whitening gel is activated using a light source. This "activation" shortens the needed treatment time and/or makes the whitener more effective
  6. Leave whitening gel for a prescribed time or repeat 4 and 5
  7. Remove whitening gel
    1. the whitening gel and dental dam is washed and suctioned off
  8. Determine Post-bleaching Tooth Shade
    1. after the bleaching treatment has been completed, a shade evaluation is done to see how much whitening is achieved
Recovery Expectations

Some people who undergo in-office whitening may experience some sensitivity in their teeth. This sensitivity should be gone within 1-2 days. Sensitivity from at home whitening will dissipate after a 1-2 day rest between whitening applications.

Post care Instructions for Tooth Whitening (In-Office)
  1. Avoid consuming color-staining foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, berry pie, soy sauce, red wine, mustard or ketchup, coke, etc. as well as smoking for at least one week
  2. Proper oral hygiene care should be carried out to maintain and avoid diminished whitening results
  3. If experiencing some sensitivity in teeth after tooth whitening
    1. Avoid hot, cold or acidic food and beverages
    2. Pain medication be taken as directed as long as there is no medical contradiction based upon your medical history
    3. Use fluoride rinse and toothpaste for sensitivity teeth
  4. If experiencing some sensitivity in teeth for take-home bleaching
    1. Wear the tray for a shorter period of time (for example, two 30-minute sessions vs. two 60-minute sessions)
    2. Stop whitening your teeth for two to three days to allow your teeth to adjust to the whitening process

     

At-home whitening systems (Home Bleaching)



The dentist molds vinyl tray to fit your teeth and then gives you a prescribed gel containing carbomide peroxide to put in the trays. You go home load the gel in the trays wear the trays in place for six to eight hours a day for 2-3 weeks. When the peroxide begins its work it introduces oxygen into the enamel of your teeth, literally bleaching any staining element present. Only natural or enamel can be whitened, veneer, crowns and filling can not be lightened. Obviously with this the best time is bedtime because there should be little interruption. The gel is a gentle solution and does not damage the tooth structure.

It must always be noted that even if teeth are successfully whitened, retaining habits or exposing your teeth to vulnerable variables such as eating dark fruit or drinking coffee or smoking will only darken your teeth again.

All of tooth bleaching procedures can be done in our office provided by licensed dentists and dental professionals to further ensure your safety.


Procedure for Home Bleaching Treatment
  • First evaluation and Individual customized trays made
    • at the dental office, patients are scheduled for a tray fitting where impressions or molds of the upper and lower teeth are taken
    • from the impressions, customized trays are formed
  • Application instructions are given along with syringes of whitening gel
    • the customized trays are delivered and tested for proper fit
    • instruction on the application of gel and how to wear the tray is then given
  • The tray and whitening gel are worn for several hours over a period of time as prescribed by your dentist

 

Opalescence® 

Nothing freshens up your appearance like a whiter, bright smile. Opalescence® is the first ADA accepted, syringe delivered, take-home bleaching gel! The patented formula has sticky, adhesive properties, which produce results in days rather than weeks!
Those "glorified toothpastes" at the grocery store just can't give you the whitest possible smile, only your dentist can. Opalescence® tooth whitening system safely bleaches your teeth to lighten discoloration caused by food, coffee, tobacco, aging and other sources.
Opalescence® gives you beautiful overnight results.

  • Fast, safe and effective
  • Delicious flavors (Mint, Melon) - Great taste; minimal salivary flow.
  • Patented, sticky, and highly viscous formula stays in tray and on teeth where it belongs!
  • Significant water in formula minimizes tooth dehydration
  • Wear as little as 30 minutes per day!
  • Stays active for 8-10 hours for night time bleaching
  • Contains 0.11% fluoride ion

Opalescence® is a fast, safe and effective tooth whitening system. The whitening gel is a thick solution, which is dispensed to patients by a dentist and applied by the patient at home using a clear and inconspicuous custom fitted tray. The unique "scalloped" tray with reservoirs was developed to minimize tray contact and peroxide gel exposure to soft tissues. The Opalescence PF sticky formula does not leach from the tray as did former tooth whitening preparations.

The delicious mint flavored gel is worn overnight, while you sleep for ultimate performance and maximum convenience. The patented formula bleaches in as little as 30 minutes in 1-3 daily treatments or for 1-6 hours daytime (if worn overnight, gel will stay active for 8-10 hours).

The active ingredient in Opalescence®, carbamide peroxide, has been recognized by FDA for many years as an oral antiseptic and is now used for its superior tooth whitening properties. Opalescence® is available in a variety of carbamide peroxide concentrations to whiten even the most difficult stains.

Opalescence PF is recommended for whitening discolored teeth prior to placement of composite, veneers, and/or crowns. Wait approximately two weeks following the bleaching procedure to assure shade has stabilized before matching restorations to bleached enamel. Porcelain and other restorative materials will not whiten. Many times patients with lighter porcelain restorations can benefit from having adjacent darker natural teeth lightened to match the lighter restorations.

The Opalescence formula has shown to be effective approximately 95% of the time for removing some or all of the discoloration and/or stains due to natural, congenital, systemic, pharmalogic, traumatic, etc. factors. Success is most always obtained with fluorosis and to significant degrees with tetracycline staining, depending on the patient compliance and/or duration of treatment.

Postcare Instructions for At-home Bleaching Solution
  • Avoid consuming color-staining foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, berry pie, soy sauce, red wine, mustard or ketchup, coke, etc. as well as smoking for at least one week
  • Proper oral hygiene care should be carried out to maintain and avoid diminished whitening results
  • If experiencing some sensitivity in teeth after tooth whitening
    • Avoid hot, cold or acidic food and beverages
    • Pain medication be taken as directed as long as there is no medical contradiction based upon your medical history
    • Use fluoride rinse and toothpaste for sensitivity teeth
  • If experiencing some sensitivity in teeth for take-home bleaching
    • Wear the tray for a shorter period of time (for example, two 30-minute sessions vs. two 60-minute sessions)
    • Stop whitening your teeth for two to three days to allow your teeth to adjust to the whitening process

Consideration for teeth whitening
Tooth whitening is not recommended or will be less successful in the following circumstances:


Age and pregnancy issues.

Bleaching is not recommended in children under the age of 16. This is because the pulp chamber, or nerve of the tooth, is enlarged until this age. Teeth whitening under this condition could irritate the pulp or cause it to become sensitive. Teeth whitening is also not recommended in pregnant or lactating women.

Sensitive teeth and allergies to products.

Individuals with sensitive teeth and gums, receding gums and/or defective restorations should consult with their dentist prior to using a tooth whitening system. Anyone allergic to peroxide (the whitening agent) should not use a bleaching product.

Gum disease, worn enamel, cavities, and exposed roots.
Individuals with gum disease or teeth with worn enamel are generally discouraged from undergoing a tooth whitening procedure. Cavities need to be treated before undergoing any whitening procedure. This is because the whitening solutions penetrate into any existing decay and the inner areas of the tooth, which can cause sensitivity. Also, whitening procedures will not work on exposed tooth roots because roots do not have an enamel layer.

Fillings, crowns and other restorations.
Tooth-colored fillings and resin composite materials used in dental restorations (crowns, veneers, bonding, bridges) do not whiten. Therefore, using a whitening agent on teeth that do and do not contain restorations will results in uneven whitening-in this case, making the teeth without restorations appear lighter than those with restorations. Any whitening procedure should be done prior to the placement of composite fillings, bonding, veneers, crowns, dentures, or porcelain restorations in order to best match the degree of whitening to your new tooth color. A minimum of 2 weeks following a whitening procedure should be allowed before crowns, bondings, or veneers are completed. This will allow enough time for the enamel to remineralize and optimize the bonding strength. Tooth-colored fillings will need to be replaced after the bleaching process is complete. Individuals with numerous restorations that would result in uneven whitening may be better off considering bonding, veneers or crowns rather than a tooth whitening system. Ask your dentist what strategy may be best for you.

Unrealistic expectations.
Individuals who expect their teeth to be a new "blinding white" may be disappointed with their results. Smokers need to be aware that their results will be limited unless they refrain from continued smoking, particularly during the bleaching process. A healthy guide as to a reasonable degree of whiteness to achieve with a whitening process that would give a natural appearance to a person's teeth is a slightly whiter color than the whites of your eyes.

Darkly stained teeth.
Yellow-ish teeth respond well to bleaching, brownish-colored teeth respond less well, and grayish-hue or purple-stained teeth may not respond well to bleaching at all. Blue-gray staining caused by tetracycline is more difficult to lighten and may require up to 6 months of home treatments or several in-office appointments to successfully lighten. Teeth that have dark stains may be better candidates for another lightening option, such as veneers , bonding , or crowns . Your dentist can discuss the options best suited for your situation.

Laser whitening

At Patong Smile Dental Clinic, we utilize the Doctor Smile LWS -Laser Whitening System (a genuine laser whitening system)- apply with laser is the safest and fastest way to whiten the teeth, removing the most difficult discoloration from your teeth caused by different agents such as coffee, tobacco, wine and other pigmented stains.


Laser activation accelerates the whitening process, enhancing the natural white of the teeth and offers the convenience and satisfaction of results in only one visit. The Laser Tooth Whitening procedure involves the cosmetic dentist removing any plaque from the teeth and then the application of a LWS peroxide-based gel. Once the LWS is applied to the teeth surface, the laser is used to activate the gel and initiate the whitening process. Laser Whitening System improves whiteness better than any other treatment available.

 

Benefits of Laser Tooth Whitening

  • Fast and gentle whitening system. The laser whitening treatment is completed within one visit in about one hour
  • More efficient laser energy allows for faster treatment time and less post-procedure sensitivity compared to other in-office whitening treatments
  • No need to wear the tray over night as used in at-home whitening systems
  • Accredited by FDA and CE
  • No damage to the pulp
  • No anesthesia required
  • Proven results over all other methods
  • Longer lasting over 1 year

Laser procedure
With laser bleaching a dentist applies a peroxide solution to your teeth and then uses light or a laser to accelerate the whitening process. It takes approximately 1 hour to complete the procedure. The process involves no additional at home treatment.

Laser tooth whitening has a satisfaction rate of about 93%. The long-term results depend primarily on the individual. Certain habits, such as using tobacco products, drinking coffee, tea, dark soft drinks, and infrequent visits to the dentist may lessen results. As long as you receive regular professional care and use professional after care products (whitening paste, etc.) you should be able to maintain results for a period of 1-2 years.

Laser tooth whitening is safe and will not soften enamel or existing fillings. The main ingredient in the gel that's used during the process is hydrogen peroxide. Dentists have used hydrogen peroxide solutions to whiten teeth for years. The percentage of hydrogen peroxide used in laser tooth whitening is 15%. This mixture is considered safe for all gum types and does not produce sensitivity.

Whitening will not correct certain forms of discoloration. For these cases, a dentist may recommend veneers instead which cover the entire tooth. Teeth with prosthetics, bonding, tooth-colored fillings will not bleach. Individuals with yellow tones to their teeth respond best. The degree of whiteness will vary from individual to individual depending on the condition of the teeth, nature of the stain and individual reaction to the whitening agent.

ZOOM! Advanced Power professional tooth whitening system.

Patong Smile Dental Clinic now offers the latest Zoom! Advanced Power™ professional tooth whitening system.
Zoom! Advanced Power™ is a scientifically advanced, patent pending, tooth whitening procedure. It is safe, effective and fast for anyone looking for immediate results. With the new Zoom! Advanced Power system, patients experience up to 67% less sensitivity than with the previous Zoom! system. And it is also 33% faster with results in 45 minutes. Zoom teeth whitening has been shown to be the #1 system by an independent dental research company and is featured on the popular television program 'Extreme Makeover'.

The procedure is simple and take only 45 minutes. After checking your teeth and gums, a whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide is placed over your teeth. The low-heat Zoom! light is shone on your teeth to activate and break down the hydrogen peroxide. As the hydrogen peroxide breaks down, it allows oxygen to enter your teeth and bleach the dentin and enamel.

What is Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening ?
The Zoom! Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe, fast and also effective. In just 45 minutes, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom! teeth whitening has been shown to be the #1 system by an independent dental research company and is featured on the popular television program on ABC’s Extreme Makeover.

What is the Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedure?

The simply process begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The accredited and trained dentist then applies the proprietary Zoom Whitening Gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to twelve shades whiter, sometimes more. A fluoride treatment for a few minutes completes the procedure. You'll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure. At our clinic will recommend a consultation and a thorough clean before the Zoom! Teeth Whitening procedure if you have tartar or stains.

How does Zoom! Teeth Whitening work ?
The Zoom! Tooth Whitening System consists of a halide lamp filtered to emit light in the 350nm - 400nm range.
The Zoom! light generates minimal heat which helps make the procedure comfortable. The Zoom light activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional tooth whitening. The gel is a proprietary scientifically formulated, pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. The Zoom! light aids in activating the Hydrogen Peroxide and helps it penetrate the surface of the tooth.

As the Hydrogen Peroxide gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel. The production of highly saturated oxygen from the hydrogen peroxide gel breaks down the size of long chained molecules that stain tooth enamel. (Examples of these molecules are coffee, tea, tobacco, chocolate, red wine, sauce and beetroot.) As these "teeth staining" molecules become smaller they release themselves from within the tooth enamel while the structure of the tooth is unchanged. Dramatically whiter and brighter teeth is then achieved. The Zoom company has worked extensively with optics experts for many months to create a new custom Sodium-Free Short Arc bulb, which emits the optimal bleaching spectrum at the highest power output of any chairside whitening system ever.

An average of 8 shades in just 45 minutes. Zoom! patients experience 67% less sensitivity than those treated with the original Zoom! system - a system heralded for its low sensitivity characteristics. The new Zoom! advanced optical guidance system ensures quick, precise patient set-up for optimal results. A study has shown that use of the Zoom! lamp increases the effectiveness of the Zoom! gel by 33% or more, giving an average improvement of eight shades. In clinical studies, over 50% of patients reached B1* or better** in just 45 minutes. This testing was conducted among patients with starting with shades that were 8 shades or more darker than shade B1 using three, 15 minutes sessions.

(*B1 is the name of the lightest natural tooth shade on the Vitapan® shade guide )(**Data on file. Measured by Vitapan® Classical Shade Guide arranged in Value order. Vita is a registered trademark of Vita Fahnfabrik, H. Rauter GmbH & KG.)

Do many people whiten their teeth ?

Millions of people! More than you might imagine; both men and women. A dazzling smile can ignite a room, projecting an image of self-assurance and high personal esteem. Now it can be yours! The Zoom! Whitening System makes it easier and faster than ever before.

How white will my teeth become ?
The results are spectacular. Clinical studies have shown that the Zoom teeth whitening treatment achieves up to 12 shades lighter with the average being 8 shades. Individual results may vary and will depend upon your age, type of stain, initial tooth colour and any visible restorations (White fillings, crowns etc). Please ask our qualified dental staff how much whiter your teeth can be and we will show you what is possible on a tooth shade guide as shown above.
Some whitening clinics will only recommend either surgery whitening or home whitening. We have found that combining both methods is the best way to get the most dramatic results and keep them for life.

How long do the results last ?
To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily and use of take-home whitening gel and custom made teeth whitening trays once or twice per year. These are professional formula products designed specifically to keep your teeth their brightest. They are available only through your dental professional. Six monthly general cleans and checkups are also recommended to remove any resistant surface stains and to keep your teeth and gums healthy for life.

Six monthly general cleans and checkups are also recommended to remove any resistant surface stains and to keep your teeth and gums healthy for life.

Can Zoom! Teeth whitening work if I have already tried other whitening systems in the past ?
Yes! If you have used other technique or home bleaching whitening systems and/or over the counter products or any other systems that claim to be the same as Zoom! we have found that Zoom! Teeth Whitening will still be able to further improve the results. In many cases the improvement is very noticeable. However, we would need to consult you first. If you have deep stains caused by tetracycline antibiotics or your front teeth have been treated then your teeth may only whiten a fraction more. Other options then may need consideration and will be fully explained to you.

Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and Zoom ?
Yes! Consulting your dental professional is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Plus, over-the-counter tooth whitening strips, brush-on gels and toothpastes take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. In fact patients often tell us that the low concentration over-the-counter tooth whitening products had no noticeable result. Zoom! is clinically proven to whiten your teeth eight shades or more in just over an hour. Only a dentist can get your teeth this white, this fast.

Does it work on veneers, crowns or tooth coloured bonded materials ?
The Zoom teeth whitening treatment is designed to work on vital (living) tooth enamel. However, there has been some success in removing stains from veneers, crowns and tooth coloured bonded materials. During your consultation we will discuss your particular situation.

Is Zoom teeth whitening safe ?
Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a Zoom trained and accredited dentist is very safe. The active ingredient in the Zoom teeth whitening treatment is Hydrogen Peroxide that changes to oxygen. This has been safely used in dentistry for over a hundred years. Numerous scientific articles have shown that using hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth is effective and safe. It has also been thoroughly studied, tested and found safe by university researchers. The Zoom teeth whitening treatment has no adverse effect on existing restorations (fillings or crowns etc), and does not rub away, soften, damage or weaken the enamel tooth structure. As with any tooth whitening product, Zoom! is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women. One of the unique features of Zoom teeth whitening is that minimal heat is transferred, thus ensuring a safe experience. Zoom teeth whitening in-surgery teeth whitening can only be performed by specially qualified dentists, which further ensures your safety.

Will it hurt and are there any side effects ?
Some people will experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during or after treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after completion of the treatment. The temporary sensitivity can be minimal for some yet others will notice it similar to ice-cream sensitivity. We will give you plenty of advice and flouride gel to help minimize this temporary sensitivity. No needles or drills are used.

A note of assurance
Tooth whitening is an extremely well-established procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Hydrogen Peroxide, the active agent in Zoom! has also been safely used for many years in the treatment of gums and other oral soft tissue. The whitening process is effective on most discoloured teeth. Darker stains, such as those cause by antibiotics, are more difficult to whiten. The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient, depending on the structure of the teeth.

If you have any questions, please ask Patong  Smile Dental Clinic who is there to help maximize your smile using the Zoom! Whitening System

LED Whitening system

Just about everyone wishes they had whiter teeth. Fortunately, there is an easy, painless way to make your teeth whiter with bleaching – a dental technique that can give you a dazzling, bright smile!
      Although teeth seem very hard, the enamel has microscopic pores that discolor over time as we age, from smoking, and from staining substances that we eat and drink. In some cases, enamel discoloration occurs during early tooth formation from antibiotic and fluoride consumption. Bleaching simply removes stains from the enamel of your teeth.

LED Whitening System.
We all want to look our best and a brighter, whiter smile can do so much to enhance your appearance than nearly anything else. With LED whitening, the most advanced tooth whitening system available today, you can have the beautiful smile you want in just 1 hour!!!

LED Whitening System  The latest advance LED technologies of teeth whitening system which can improves your teeth's brightness and whiteness shades by combining an Amorphous Calcium Phosphate technology with light-activated chemistry of monochromatic light emissions to accelerate the activation of bleaching agents into the enamel layers of your teeth

LED Whitening System :   How? 
The initiation occurs through the application of light which emits monochromatic. Light at the specific wave length absorbed by catalyst molecules only and by accelerating the release of activated bleaching agent.

The chemical reaction.
Hydrogen peroxide breaks down to water and free oxygen radical. The free radicals chemically reduce larger organic-pigmented molecules in the enamel matrix into smaller, less pigmented constituents by rapid oxidation. These compounds have double bonds and long carbon chains that are subsequently reduced to smaller carbon chains and hydroxyl groups, which eliminate discoloration.

Hydrogen peroxide, the most accepted active ingredient for in-office bleaching, does not decompose readily which is why traditional bleaching procedures require lengthy visits.

Is the procedure safe?
Yes, LED whitening is a very safe procedure.
It does not heat the tooth thus no harm is done to the tooth vitality. The LED whitening system has been specifically developed and tested to ensure that no harm is done to either enamel or dentine and that the pH level is neutral and will not produce any acidic effect associated with some other whitening products.

Will the procedure hurt?
No. this is a very simple procedure where no anesthesia is needed as no pain is experienced. However some patients may experience minor sensitivity during or following the procedure. This sensitivity lasts no more than a couple of hours and it can be resolved by taking an analgesic.

Is the treatment suitable for everyone?
Basically, LED whitening treatment is suitable for everyone. While the results are vary,  LED whitening procedure are generally not designed for caps, veneer or bonds. The dental examination will determine whether or not there is any condition that might prevent the treatment from working as it should. In such and event the dentist will recommend to carry out the corrective procedure before beginning the tooth whitening treatment.

How white will teeth get?
Your results may vary depending on the type of stain, thickness of enamel, your age and personal habits. However, during the consultation the dentist will go over the patients’ personal expectation and individual clinical situation in order to achieve the optimum natural whiteness.
