Teeth Whitening in Colombia FAQs
Does teeth whitening hurt?
You will experience a little sensitivity shortly after whitening has been done. This will pass in a few hours/days.
How much whiter will my teeth be?
Your teeth will be upwards of eight shades whiter from the initial shade. However, the degree of whiteness is dependent on the hue your desire and the level of staining on your teeth.
Is teeth whitening safe and effective?
Currently, only dentist-dispensed home-use products containing 10% carbamide peroxide and office-applied products containing 35% hydrogen peroxide have received the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
Will teeth whitening get the stains out from smoking?
Yes, most stains can be removed. However, there are times where your teeth may not respond like they should or a particular stain won’t come out.
When this is the case, we offer dental veneers that can be placed on top of stained teeth to improve their appearance.
How often does teeth whitening need to be touched up?
Whitening is not permanent. Depending on your lifestyle or desired whiteness, you may need touch ups a few times a year to every few years.
Does teeth whitening damage tooth enamel?
Studies of whitening products using 10% carbamide peroxide showed little to no effect on the hardness or mineral content of a tooth’s enamel surface.
Does teeth whitening damage existing dental restorations?
Over 10 years of clinical use of whitening products containing 10% carbamide peroxide have not shown any damage to existing dental work.
Does teeth whitening damage a tooth's nerve?
No, there’s no evidence that the tooth whitening process has a harmful effect on the health of a tooth’s nerve.
Is it possible to whiten a dead tooth?
Dead teeth rarely benefit from any form of teeth whitening.
Are there any side effects from tooth whitening?
Teeth may look “chalky” for a short period following whitening. This is not permanent and the color will become more uniform within a day or two.
Additionally, you may experience sensitivity to air or cold foods and drinks. The sensitivity usually resolves within a couple days when you finish whitening your teeth.
Are teeth whitening products more effective on teeth with stains of certain colors?
Yes. Yellowish teeth respond well to bleaching, brownish-colored teeth respond less well, and grayish-hue or purple-stained teeth may not respond well to bleaching at all.
Blue-gray staining caused by tetracycline is more difficult to lighten and may require up to 6 months of home treatments or several in-office appointments to successfully lighten.
