Teeth whitening is safe only when done correctly, under the supervision of a dental professional. Patients should consult their dentist before using bleaching gel kits, whitening treatment gels or whitening kits.
Overuse of teeth whitening products or procedures can potentially harm your teeth, leading to enamel erosion and increased sensitivity. It is, therefore, essential to follow the instructions provided by your dentist and not overdo it with teeth whitening treatments.
Teeth whitening treatments at Smalto Dental Clinic in Nicosia are safe and effective because they are performed by a well-trained and highly experienced dental professional. Our dentists tailor the treatment to each patient’s unique dental requirements, thoroughly considering any subsequent oral health complications.
Trust the Smalto team for your “bright white smile” journey!
There are some prerequisites to teeth whitening. Your dentist must first examine the health of your teeth and oral cavity to assess your needs.
Teeth whitening is most effective for people with yellow or brown teeth stains caused by aging, smoking, or consumption of staining foods and drinks such as coffee or red wine.
Before undergoing teeth whitening, it is essential to have a thorough dental check-up by the Smalto professionals to assess your oral health and determine if the procedure is appropriate for you. If you have untreated cavities, gum disease, or other oral health issues, these should be addressed before proceeding with teeth whitening. Our expert cosmetic dentists will advise you on what tooth whitening technique is best for you.
It’s also important to have realistic expectations for the results of teeth whitening. While the procedure can improve the appearance of your teeth, it may not completely eliminate all stains and discoloration. Our dentists will help you understand what results you can expect based on your individual situation.
Teeth whitening works by using a bleaching agent to break down and remove surface stains on the teeth. The bleaching agent works by penetrating the enamel of the tooth and breaking down the stains into smaller molecules, which then diffuse out of the tooth. This process can lighten the color of the teeth by several shades. The inorganic mineral structure remains completely intact and healthy.
In modern dentistry, there are several tooth-whitening techniques and different bleaching materials, allowing the dentist to use specialized products according to the client’s problem.
If you’re considering having a teeth whitening treatment in Nicosia, call Smalto Dental Clinic to book an appointment today. Our mission is to make you love your smile and boost your confidence!
1. Teeth Whitening In The Dental Office (Fast Bleaching)
The In-Office Whitening System is a fast and effective teeth bleaching procedure providing immediate results. This option is suitable for patients who need quick, drastic results or for busy people.
Fast bleaching is a chairside procedure, meaning it takes place in the dental office under the care of a specialized dentist and takes about one and a half hours.
In-office teeth whitening offers a quick result as it requires only one appointment, and the patient walks out with a brighter, whiter smile that turns heads. At Smalto Dental Clinic in Nicosia, we use the ZOOM system, a world-renowned office bleaching technique with guaranteed excellent results.
Home bleaching is a tooth whitening technique the patient performs with a special set of whitening trays at home.
Your dentist will explain in detail how to use at-home whitening trays. These trays are custom-fitted to your teeth and filled with a lower-concentration bleaching gel that you can wear for a specified amount of time each day. This at-home treatment can help further lighten and brighten your teeth. In addition, it can be used periodically to touch up the results of in-office whitening.
Your dentist might recommend using home bleaching to maintain the professional ZOOM teeth whitening results. By starting with an in-office treatment and following up with at-home whitening, you can gradually acclimate your teeth to the bleaching gel and reduce the risk of sensitivity, which is a common side effect of teeth whitening.
This technique combines the positive aspects of in-office teeth whitening and at-home teeth bleaching techniques. It is ideal for patients who want to maintain the results of in-office teeth whitening.
On the first appointment, the dentist will take impressions to create customized trays/splints. On a second appointment, having constructed the splints, the dentist will check the fit of the splint in your mouth and give you the bleaching material. You will be asked to place the material in each whitening tray and then wear it for 3-4 hours every day (eg., during your night sleep) for 2-3 weeks.
The bleaching material must not overflow or come into contact with your gums. Be cautious of the amount you put into the whitening splints!
We can’t give an accurate prediction on this question because the result depends on many factors. First, it depends on why your teeth became darker.
Secondly, it depends on quite a few of your habits, such as smoking and eating. Consumption of foods and drinks that contain elevated pigments such as coffee, red wine and black tea adversely affects the maintenance of the result.
Thirdly, it depends on your oral hygiene, such as brushing and flossing. Using a high-quality toothbrush & fluoride toothpaste, regular brushing, and rinsing with mouthwash can help to keep your teeth clean and shining. Nonetheless, the effect can last more than 3-5 years, taking into consideration the above aggravating factors.
Non-vital teeth sometimes become discoloured due to trauma or root canal procedures. In these cases, internal bleaching is indicated to restore the natural appearance of the tooth. We usually use the so-called “walking bleach method”, which gives excellent results. This method is a combination of chair-side dental work and home self-application of bleaching material.
Avoid consuming foods or drinks that can stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-colored fruits or sauces.
Try to avoid eating or drinking anything for at least 30 minutes after teeth whitening treatment to allow the teeth to rehydrate and avoid staining.
Yes, drinking coffee through a straw can help minimize direct contact with the teeth and reduce the risk of staining after teeth whitening.
You can drink water immediately after your teeth whitening treatment.
It is best to wait at least 24-48 hours after teeth whitening treatment before consuming coffee to reduce the risk of staining.
A bright and sparkling smile can have a significant impact on your self-confidence and overall appearance. If you’re considering teeth whitening in Cyprus, it’s essential to know that the cost can vary depending on multiple factors. Generally, the price for teeth whitening at a dental office can range from 340€ to 360€, while the cost of at-home teeth whitening can vary from 220€ to 260€.
However, the type of treatment, the level of discoloration, the quality of materials used, and the expertise of the dentist can all affect the final price. Additionally, it’s important to note that teeth whitening is not a one-time fix, and maintenance treatments may be necessary to preserve your results. By scheduling a consultation with our experienced cosmetic dentists at Smalto Dental Clinic Nicosia, you can receive a personalized treatment plan that fits your needs and budget while achieving the dazzling smile you deserve.
Yes, you can brush your teeth the night of teeth whitening. However, it is recommended to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and avoid brushing aggressively.
After teeth whitening, it is normal to experience some tooth sensitivity, especially to hot or cold temperatures. The results of teeth whitening can last for several months, but may require touch-up treatments to maintain brightness.
