How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Our WHITEN+ gel contains oxygenating molecules which effectively and gently penetrates and breaks down the stains within the tooth. This teeth whitening process reverses the yellowing effect on teeth, using a powerful whitening agent to transform staining molecules into colourless compounds, giving your teeth a brighter appearance.

Our WHITEN+ program is designed to cater to your lifestyle and individual needs, ensuring effective teeth whitening. Rest assured, it's a safe whitening treatment that meets the quality and effectiveness standards set by Directive 2011/84/EU.

Teeth whitening treatments have become increasingly popular for individuals seeking to achieve a brighter smile and combat tooth discolouration caused by factors such as poor dental hygiene, drinking coffee, or consuming red wine. With advancements in dental technology, there are now several teeth whitening options available, ranging from in-office teeth whitening procedures to take home teeth whitening kits.

What Whitening Treats

image 239-1
Food And Drink

Coffee, tea, and red wine are some extrinsic stains. What do they have in common? Intense colour pigments called chromogens that attach to the white, outer part of your tooth (enamel), staining the external surface of your teeth.

image 240 (2)-1
Tobacco Use

Two chemicals found in tobacco create stubborn stains: Tar and nicotine. Tar is naturally dark, and stains teeth black. Nicotine, when mixed with oxygen, turns into a yellowish, surface-staining substance.

Benefits Of Teeth Whitening

Group 526 (3)-1

Our teeth whitening procedures are conducted under the supervision of experienced dentists who prioritize your oral health. We utilize safe whitening gels containing ingredients like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, ensuring minimal risk to your tooth enamel.

Beyond White Teeth

Natural teeth have limitations for whitening. For a smile that you can fully customise to be as white as you like, consider veneers. Veneers are delicate layers applied to the tooth surface, transforming its appearance. They enhance tooth colour and fix imperfections.

Causes Of Yellow Teeth

image 239 (1)
Trauma

If you have been hit in the mouth or teeth before, it is possible for your tooth to change colour as a result. This occurs because the tooth reacts to the injury by depositing more dentin, a yellowish layer beneath the enamel.
Your tooth may also change colour due to an internal injury, so it is advised to visit your dentist if you suspect any injury. Internal discolourations may require internal whitening to lighten the teeth.

image 240 (3)
Medications

Tooth darkening can be a side effect of certain antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure medications.
Children who are given antibiotics such as tetracycline and doxycycline during the development of their teeth may experience the discolouration in their permanent teeth.
Chemotherapy and head and neck radiation can also darken teeth. These types of internal discolourations are more difficult to whiten.

image 241-1
Enamel Erosion

Sometimes, teeth turn yellow due to the surface of our teeth (the enamel layer) wearing out. This can be due to physical abrasion from harsh particles and heavy brushing or can be linked to acid erosion. Once thinned, the effect is permanent as your enamel layer cannot grow or thicken. Teeth whitening procedure can improve the colour, but there will be limitations to the results.

image 257 (1)
Age

Below the hard, white outer shell of your teeth (enamel) is a softer area called dentin. Over time, the outer enamel layer gets thinner with acids and brushing, and more of the inner yellowish dentin shows through.
The inner layer also gets yellower with age, and this also exacerbates the yellow appearance of the teeth.

Facts About Teeth Whitening Treatment

  • The active ingredient in whitening products (hydrogen peroxide) goes through the outer layer of your teeth and into the second layer called the dentin.
  • This process does not damage the tooth layers or integrity of the tooth, but can sometimes lead to temporary sensitivity.   
  • Teeth are naturally porous and will accumulate stains over time as you eat and drink dark coloured foods, smoke or clean your teeth improperly.  Avoiding stain causing factors, and regular brushing will prolong the effects of teeth whitening.
  • Whether opting for in-office whitening treatments or teeth whitening products, individuals can achieve whiter teeth and enhance their overall appearance.
  • Overall, teeth whitening procedures can effectively remove both intrinsic and extrinsic stains, resulting in a brighter smile.
  • During the treatment, a whitening gel is applied to the teeth, and a special light is often used to activate the whitening agent.
  • Regardless of the whitening option chosen, maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for the success of teeth whitening treatments. Regular brushing with whitening toothpaste and flossing can help prevent tooth decay and maintain the whiteness of teeth.
  • However, it's important to note that teeth whitening may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those with sensitive teeth, tooth injuries, or dental implants. Consulting with a professional dentist helps determine the most appropriate whitening option based on individual oral health conditions.

Beautiful and friendly dental clinic, was recommended by my colleague. Been coming here for dental cleaning and fillings. Always a good visit!
J. Kho

This dental clinic has very good staff who are well trained and friendly. The dentists are also very good and will explain the treatment in detail before starting treatment. The equipment is very high tech and I believe they are able to do high quality work as I did my crown here and it looks much better than my colleague who also recently did his at another place. The waiting room is also very comfortable. good job!

C. Zheng De

This clinic is one of the best I have ever seen. I saw dr Justin for my implant which I did many years ago, the tooth was loose, and other drs told me to remove it as they could not find out what brand it was but dr Justin was able to take 3d xrays and locate the brand and specially ordered the part in. he saved me from having to do a surgery to remove and put a new implant which would have cost me a bomb. the tooth looks even better than the original thanks to the experieced dental technician Katsuya from Japan. 

Very happy and will keep coming back for my regular dental. 

G. Hock An

my workplace is close by and I had a problem with my tooth for a few days, so I made an appointment to come down. The receptionist who booked my appointment was very helpful and friendly to explain the way to the clinic from my office. I saw Dr Nicholas who was able to do a root canal treatment on the same visit so that I didn't need to come back. I felt safe and comfortable to do my dental treatment here as the dental picks are all wrapped up and sterilized and only opened before each treatment when im inside.

Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening In Singapore

The basic concept of teeth whitening, is the bleaching of the outer layer of teeth to remove stains that have penetrated into them, so that your teeth colour can lighten by various shades.

There are 2 different types:

  1. The Take Home Whitening method, where your dentist will be take a scan of your teeth to create a customised whitening trays. These trays are thin and light to wear. You add a small amount of whitening gel to the tray and wear them from two to six hours per day or overnight until the desired whitening is achieved. This process usually takes two weeks. The trays are kept and can be used again for touch-ups.
  2. The In Office Treatment is where the teeth are professionally whitened with a high concentration whitening gel, with results seen immediately after the treatment.

Over 10 years of clinical use of teeth whitening products containing 10% carbamide peroxide have not shown any damage to existing fillings.

However, please take note that whitening does not work on existing restorations such as tooth-coloured fillings, crowns, bonding, veneers, and bridges.

This means that any pre-existing dental work may appear darker after teeth whitening, as only your natural teeth will lighten. These restorations may need to be replaced afterwards to match the new tooth shade achieved.

Teeth whitening does not cause damage to the structure of the teeth. Studies of teeth whitening products using 10% carbamide perixide showed no effect on the hardness or mineral content of a tooth’s enamel surface.

Many factors play into the length of time that teeth whitening lasts. For example, smokers or those who drink beverages that stain teeth, such as red wine or coffee, may not have the same long-lasting effects as those who do not smoke or drink those beverages.

Results following teeth whitening can last from 6 months to 2 years, depending on the potency of the treatment and how well one can maintain their oral hygiene. 

Reducing exposure to staining agents like the ones mentioned above will reduce the rate at which the teeth stain again and prolong the whitening effect.

Temporary tooth sensitivity can occur after the teeth whitening process, but it typically subsides after a few days. You can try to avoid cold or sour food or drinks, and use sensitive toothpaste to reduce sensitivity. The intensity and length of time associated with tooth sensitivity after whitening varies by patient.

It’s best to have realistic expectations before undergoing any whitening treatment. Your dentist should be able to explain what to expect with whitening.

Not all whitening treatments are equally effective on all people, and not all teeth will whiten to the same degree.

Teeth whitening can change a tooth’s colour by several shades, meaning teeth that are more stained or discoloured won’t whiten to the same degree as teeth that were whiter originally.

It also depends on the structure of your teeth as to how effective the teeth whitening will be.

Teeth whitening has become a popular way to prepare for weddings and other social events where people want to look their best. But because some treatments can take time to be effective, you should make sure you leave enough time before the big day.

Home whitening kits using gels can take up to two weeks to achieve results. If you have your teeth whitened professionally by your dentist (sometimes called an “in-chair” treatment), the treatment may be completed in a single appointment of about 1-2hours.

If you have an oral health condition such as tooth decay or gum disease, this should be treated as a priority before arranging a cosmetic treatment. If you haven’t had a cleaning done for a while, this will need to be done before the whitening so as to allow the gel to contact your teeth properly.

Your dentist will let you know what to expect from teeth whitening and if you are able to have teeth whitening done. When you’ve found out what the treatment involves and what the possible side-effects are, you’ll be in a position to judge whether teeth whitening is the right option for you.

Everyone responds differently to whitening treatments and everyone will whiten at different rates.

Stains that have recently formed are easier to treat than those that have been present for many years.

Teeth that are yellow or brown tend to respond better to whitening than teeth that are grey in colour.

Younger patients typically whiten more quickly than older patients, but do know that every patient is different and results will vary across individuals.

When whitening, keep in mind that your smile looks most natural when the colour of your teeth matches the whites of your eyes.

Some people want a Hollywood white smile, which is usually whiter than what natural teeth can achieve. In such cases, it may be worthwhile to consider ceramic veneers as an option, as they can be made to a much whiter shade if you desire, and they do not change in colour over time.
