Teeth whitening is among the most common procedures performed in cosmetic dentistry since it is a fast, painless, and inexpensive technique to improve the appearance of one’s smile. Everyone knows that having bright white teeth is essential to having a smile worth a million dollars.

As a result of advances in technology and cosmetic dentistry treatments, there are a variety of approaches to teeth whitening.

The teeth-whitening process that is now seeing the most significant amount of popularity all over the globe is carried out under the supervision of a dentist and uses peroxide in proportions that are standard for the industry. In contrast to the teeth whitening process that can be done at home, this one take place in an environment that is carefully controlled. Whitening therapy performed under a dentist’s supervision is not only painless but also wholly risk-free.

Tooth Whitening at Fieldstone Dental

The most substantial colour change in a condensed amount of time is the primary advantage of whitening your teeth at the dentist.

Whitening procedures performed by your neighbourhood dentist at Fieldstone Dental may make teeth noticeably whiter in a shorter time. The bleaching solution is often far more potent than what is included in do-it-yourself kits.

Why Do Teeth Get Stained?

Teeth will darken with time for various reasons, including age, dental health, and lifestyle choices. Surface stains that result from the use of certain meals or beverages, as well as tobacco products, are another factor that may have an impact.


There is a one-to-one relationship between the colour of one's teeth and their age. Teeth get more yellow as a consequence of normal wear and tear, as well as the buildup of stains, as time passes. Whitening will have visible effects immediately for teenagers, and these outcomes might be rather significant. When someone is in their twenties, their teeth may develop a yellowish tinge, making whitening them more difficult. By the time you reach your forties, the yellow will have turned to brown, and you may need to do extra care. By the time a person reaches their fifties, their teeth have likely ingested a variety of staining agents that are notoriously difficult to remove, but not impossible.


Consuming darkly pigmented foods and drinks regularly, such as red wine, coffee, tea, cola, oranges, and other similar items, may produce noticeable discolouration over many years. In addition, acidic foods like citrus fruits and vinegar are factors that lead to the erosion of enamel. As a direct consequence, the surface becomes more see-through, and an increased amount of the yellow dentin underneath may be seen.


Nicotine forms deposits on teeth that have a brownish appearance, and these deposits progressively soak into the tooth structure, causing an inherent discolouration.


Grinding your teeth (gnashing, bruxing, and other similar behaviours) may contribute to micro-cracking and can cause the biting edges to darken. This behaviour is most often brought on by stress.


Large fractures in the teeth may be caused by falls and other traumas, and these fissures tend to gather a great deal of discolouration and debris over time.

How White My Teeth Should Be?

The findings are very subjective and vary significantly from one individual to the next. The colour of one’s skin and the amount of makeup one wears significantly impact how white their teeth seem to others. Those with a darker complexion or who wear a dark cosmetics tone will seem to have whiter teeth than those who do not. Even if teeth are never going to be white on their own, many individuals still desire their teeth to be whiter.

Before beginning any teeth whitening procedure, it is essential to consult with your dentist to get an accurate estimate of the results you may expect to get and how long it should take to get those results.

Shade Guides for teeth whitening

Shade Guides

Shade guides are the instruments of choice for making before-and-after comparisons of tooth colour in dental offices. These portable screens show a large variety of tooth colours in a range. (Dentists often utilize them for selecting crown colours and hues for other restorations.)

The Vitapan Classic Shade Guide has long been recognized as setting the standard for the others. This uniform tooth-colour nomenclature is provided by this shade guide standard, which contains 16 different shades and arranges them logically from light to dark within four different colour groups.

Whitening may sometimes lighten the colour of teeth by nine or more shades, although the majority of people who bleach their teeth will likely only experience a change of two to seven shades as a result of the procedure.

Maintaining Your Results

Dentists will probably prescribe the following to prolong the life of freshly whitened teeth:

  • Whitening is a follow-up treatment or maintenance at home, which may be started immediately or done as seldom as once a year.
  • Stay away from meals and drinks that are dark in colour for at least a week after whitening your teeth.
  • Use a straw to take sips of dark-coloured liquids whenever it’s practicable to do so.
  • Maintaining a high standard of oral cleanliness by brushing and flossing the teeth after each meal and before bed.

If you are considering getting your teeth whitened, it is in your best interest to stick with products and procedures that your dentist has approved. If you use other over-the-counter products and either does not use them as prescribed or use too much of them, you risk causing harm to your teeth and gums. Because of this, the expense of having your teeth whitened while under the supervision of a dentist is still reasonable and well worth the investment.
