Difference between bleaching that I do at home & that my dentist does?
Select Page

What’s the difference between bleaching I can do at home and the bleaching that my dentist does?

For many years, dentists focus was on performing “non-vital” bleaching on darkened, damaged teeth, which have undergone root canal treatment. In the present times, “non-vital” bleaching is not only undertaken on damaged teeth but on the healthy teeth as well.

Vital bleaching, also referred to as whitening, can either be carried through in our dentistry Bolton or you may perform the bleaching process by yourself using our dentist’s instructions. To help you carry out the task, you can go through the wide range of products in the stores for sale, but please keep in mind that you will come across different products that have dissimilar results.

It is also vital to understand that these different products, which include those utilized by our dentists, can give you different side effects and risks.

With this in mind, here is our advice on teeth whitening products:

  • Avoid assuming whitening toothpastes that have irritating ingredients are bleaching products. The only thing such products work on is surface stains, meaning they don’t assist you to fully achieve teeth whitening. You should be careful not to buy such products as they are sold in numerous stores.
  • Another whitening toothpaste sold in the stores is the one that has a chemical ingredient known as bleach. This whitening toothpaste evokes a chemical reaction to brighten teeth. Overall, they contain the least amount of bleach and they don’t always brighten your teeth as good as the stronger products do.

The goodness of the above products though, is that they have lower chances of giving you severe side effects. Additionally, they are very similar to regular toothpaste, so all you have to do is brush your teeth with the paste and rinse off as normal.

Amongst all products you will find out there, bleaching kits have a much stronger effect and they can last longer on your teeth than toothpastes that have bleach as an ingredient. The downside to using these kits is that they don’t offer that added safety of having dentists supervise your side effects. Something else that makes bleaching kits unsafe is the fact that the bleach is contained in a small sized tray, which is likely to have the chemical leak in your mouth.

Generally, it is safer and better to go to the dentist’s office Bolton because dentists always offer patients crucial instructions to observe after they use strong bleaching products on them. Not to mention that they are the only qualified people when it comes to identifying and treating any side effect patients may sometimes get during bleaching.

The best part about visiting a doctor for bleaching is that they use good products which yield the best outcomes. In addition, dentists offer custom-built trays to patients who are in need of bleaching kits.

All in all, it is vital for patients to understand that long-term usage of bleaching or teeth whitening products could bring about issues such as tooth abrasion or tooth sensitivity. Before you use any bleaching or tooth whitening product, please make sure to consult your dentist first.

This place has such an amazing staff. The minute you walk in through the door all the way to surgery. I'm not usually the biggest fan of dentists but Dr. Hung made my wisdom teeth removal so smooth and calm that I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm usually anxious and overwhelmed walking into a dentists' office but it was not the same in this situation. Really happy to have chosen this place to work with me taking out my wisdom teeth. Just absolutely amazing.

The best dentist I've been to in my life. Modern systems and tools with an extraordinary staff that do an amazing job of explaining what is happening to your teeth. They are well versed with techniques and strategies to help you maintain excellent oral hygiene. Kind, courteous and professional every step of the way from reception to the chair. Affordable and transparent with their billing so you wont have to worry about hidden costs or extra charges.

Me, my husband and my daughter were in the clinic for the first time last week. The place is well equipped, organized and clean. Every procedure performed was explained with clarity and attention and we felt very safe. I don’t want to go anywhere else. The staff and doctors are very kind and gentle, amazing experience!

My experience with both Dr Hung and Dr Norsen has been great and their office staff are very welcoming! I was well informed in details of my treatments and felt safe and secure for them to perform it. Both dentist are very gentle and does a phenomenal job. I was happy with my filling when it was done and I'd recommend these guy to every one. 😄

This was by far one of the best dental experiences I've ever had. I have a huge fear of the dentist and was open about my fears upon arrival. Dr. Norsen was kind, caring and catered to my needs and phobia. I 100% recommend this dental facility. I also felt nothing while receiving my fillings and I'm very hard to freeze and had a lot of work that needed to be done. Over all an awesome experience for the dentist.

I was referred to this office by a friend because they offer IV sedation. I was very anxious at the dentist before but I was able to remove my wisdom teeth and I did not feel pain or discomfort. The dentist Dr. Lawrence was confident and told me what I was to expect afterward in terms of minor swelling and they also told me to come back if I have any problems but I am fine and happy. Overall I am happy this office was able to see me and they are great.

I am beyond grateful to the staff at the Smiles On Queen. I until the past 6 months had allowed my health and especially my dental health to rapidly decline. I had avoided the dentist for close to a decade and had a lot of fear, shame and embarrassment regarding the state of my teeth. From the moment I entered the office and furthermore on my call to book my appointment I was met with a degree of compassion and understanding that quite honestly has left me overwhelmed. The care, patience and expertise of the hygienist was extraordinary. Additionally the receptionist was equally as kind and understanding. Thank you - you have done so much for my self esteem - I can smile again without having to worry about the appearance of my teeth. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.

This dental office is staffed with some of the best people you will ever meet. First of all I would like to say that I’m really afraid dentists (I think its dentistophobia 😊), I've been to over 5 different ones with the same negative results from all. My mother is a cancer survivor and suggested that I check out her dental office...so I did. I was greeted by a team of fantastic people concerned with nothing but my well being. These people are angels sent here to help others in a time of difficulty, it is, honestly an absolutely amazing place.
