Professional VS at-home teeth whitening
The main advantage of professional teeth whitening is that it is customized to your mouth. At the same time, over-the-counter at-home products are one-size-fits-all.
Home whitening has a lower concentration of the whitening agent. Hence it could be more efficient in getting rid of the tough stains. However, seeing noticeable results could be faster and take weeks to even months.
You will have to wear the trays for 1-2 hours daily or strips for a few minutes daily over several weeks.
Professional teeth whitening is significantly fast. For example, if you use laser teeth whitening (Zoom) treatment, it will take you about an hour to get teeth that are eight shades whiter.
Pain and sensitivity
Since at-home modalities are not customized, they can harm your teeth and gums. Gum inflammation and pain are common side effects. In addition, the bleach can ooze into cavities damaging teeth and leading to tooth pain and sometimes needing root canal treatment. On the other hand, when done in the clinic, your dentist will constantly supervise and make sure it does not come in contact with cavities, damaged teeth, and gums.
At-home whitening trays or strips do not evenly fit around teeth. They result in an irregular, patchy and uneven whitening. In the clinic, your dentist is constantly supervising; the amount of bleach is adjusted.
Longevity of treatment
The results of professional whitening last longer as the bleach is stronger and able to reach the deeper surface of the teeth; hence your teeth will stay whiter for a more extended period compared to home treatment.
Professional teeth whitening is more expensive than at home, but it makes up for its convenience, effectiveness, and safety.
So if you want dental professional teeth whitening treatments and don’t know what to choose, make an appointment with dentists at Signature Smiles dental clinic. Our dentists in Mumbai provide all types of dental treatments, including teeth cleaning, dental implants, and cosmetic dentistry.
Ways To Deal With Sensitive Teeth :
Tooth whitening is a great way to get a bright white smile. But no matter which bleaching method you use, there is some sensitivity after whitening. These things may help you during the phase of sensitivity:
1. Desensitizing gel
In case you are already experiencing sensitivity before the whitening treatment, talk to your dentist. They can prescribe a desensitizing toothpaste that will block the pores of the dentine. Then, use it 1-2 weeks before treatment to reduce teeth sensitivity after whitening.
2. Don’t brush your teeth immediately after tooth whitening
Brushing mechanically removes debris from your teeth. But this mechanical action can increase sensitivity. In addition, whitening opens the pores of the tooth, making them vulnerable to pain. Brushing will only make it worse.
3. Shorter treatment
The treatment duration can be reduced to deal with sensitivity. In addition, your dentist can tailor-make the treatment, decreasing the frequency and time of the whitening procedure so that you experience less tooth sensitivity.
4. Take anti-inflammatory medicine
You can take an over-the-counter pain medicine such as paracetamol or ibuprofen if the pain seems unbearable. However, if you know you have a low pain threshold, take it just before the procedure is started so that the effects kick in by the time you start to experience sensitivity.
5. Avoid certain foods
It’s best not to eat or drink anything cold such as ice cream, cold drinks, cold water, or popsicles, for some time after the treatment. They will further aggravate teeth sensitivity. As the sensitivity gradually wears off, you can return to eating your favourite ice cream.
Procedures to consider before teeth whitening
> Restoring a cavitated or broken tooth should be done before whitening to seal the tooth’s nerves from the whitening agent.
> Understand the different whitening procedures and the difference between professional and at-home whitening.
> Take care of your already sensitive teeth by consulting our dentist.
Ways to avoid tooth discolouration
Most causes of discolouration are preventable, while some are natural to occur. The causes of discolouration are:
> Consuming caffeine
> Consuming aerated drinks and alcohol
> Smoking cigarettes and chewing tobacco
> Large intake of fluoride during childhood
> Damage or trauma on teeth
> Certain medication
Teeth whitening treatment is an efficient and effective way to revive and brighten your naturally radiant teeth. It is a process that removes stains from the tooth surface and improves the natural colour of the teeth. Teeth whitening is among the most common dental procedures. This cosmetic procedure is the right option for healthy, unrestored teeth. Individuals with yellow-toned teeth respond best.
Make an appointment today with the expert dentists of Signature Smiles dental clinic in Mumbai for instant teeth whitening treatment. With laser tooth whitening, you can lighten your tooth up to 8 shades in an hour.
Simple ways to naturally whiten your teeth:
Oil pulling is traditionally an ayurvedic practice where one swishes oil in their mouth to remove stuck food and bacteria build-up. Traditionally, sunflower or sesame oil is used for oil pulling; but any oil works fine.
Coconut oil is a popular choice because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
Eat fibre-rich food
A fibre-rich diet is suitable for both your body and teeth. Raw fruits and veggies possess plenty of it. Even though this is no substitute for brushing, crunchy and raw fruits and vegetables can help remove plaque as you chew.
Strawberries and pineapple are two fruits that claim to help whiten your teeth.
Limit sugar intake
Cut back on sugary and sticky food to retain healthy white teeth. If you do eat sweet food items, make sure to brush gently or rinse soon after.
Cut down on caffeine
Caffeine is common in many drinks like coffee, tea and cola. It is known to stain the teeth. The primary staining agents in coffee are chromogens. The chromogens alter the colour of objects they contact, while tea contains a different staining pigment called tannin. Tannin is a plant’s defence mechanism against insects and other herbivores. It tastes slightly bitter and is obnoxious to many animals. For humans, it contributes to tea’s flavour, colour and power to stain teeth, much like chromogens.
Brush and floss regularly
Some tooth discolouration comes naturally with age, while some result from plaque buildup.
Brushing and flossing regularly can help your teeth remain white. In addition, it reduces bacteria in your mouth and prevents plaque buildup.

Risks Involved in Teeth Whitening Treatment
Teeth whitening treatments are considered to be safe when executed by professionals. However, certain risks are associated; they are:
Excess bleaching can cause a temporary increase in sensitivity to temperature, pressure and touch. People at greatest risk for whitening sensitivity are those with gum recession, significant fissures in their teeth or leakage resulting from faulty restorations. In this case, dentists recommend a toothpaste containing potassium nitrate for sensitive teeth.
Most people who have used peroxide whiteners experience some degree of gum irritation because of bleach concentration or contact with the trays. This type of irritation typically lasts up to several days.
Dental restorations like dental crowns or veneers are not affected by the treatment and maintain their default colour, while the surrounding teeth are whitened, resulting in “technicolour teeth.”
Why is consulting a Dentist for teeth whitening a good idea?
Even though plenty of home remedies and methods are used for whitening, the results are temporary or just preventive techniques. A dentist ensures that the whitening is not only long-lasting but also safe.
Safety plays an important role when it comes to your oral health. Even the slightest amount of excess whitening agent can cause sensitivity and irritation.
Besides the risks, teeth whitening brings a lot to the table. Our dentists ensure your teeth and gum health are intact before and after the treatment. In addition, professional care helps determine the right product size and the extent of treatment that can yield safe results. Get in touch with our team of experts to know more about
