Tooth Whitening.

Tooth whitening can be carried out at home.

 

Day White ACP

   

Only a dentist can get your teeth their whitest.

Everyday use of coffee, soda and staining foods can dull and darken teeth. The active whitening ingredients in Day White ACP, Carbamide Peroxide and Hydrogen Peroxide, can safely and effectively whiten even the most difficult stains.

Additionally, Day White is the only take-home whitening brand with patented ACP technology. ACP fills tooth surface defects to restore enamel luster for a white, bright, healthy smile.

Day White is a two-component tooth whitening system. The resulting blend is a revolutionary whitener that produces beautiful white teeth in just days.

Day White is a mild solution containing a unique blend of natural soothers, conditioners and flavour enhancers. It is dispensed to patients by a dental professional, but applied by the patient at home using a comfortable and inconspicuous tray.

Unlike conventional overnight take-home tooth whitening systems that may require up to eight hours of wear time, Day White achieves the same results in only 30 minutes twice a day.

 

The Professional Whitening Process

During your diagnostic visit, your dental professional will take impressions of your teeth. This allows your dentist to make a custom gel-holding whitening tray appliance called a whitening tray.

At your second visit, you will be fitted with a take home whitening kit. You will also be given specific instructions on how to administer the gel and how often to wear your tray.

Follow the take-home directions and those of your dentist. Continue to maintain proper oral hygiene through brushing and flossing.

A Note of Assurance

Tooth whitening is an established procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Carbamide Peroxide and Hydrogen Peroxide, the active whitening ingredients, have been used safely for many years in the treatment of gums and other oral soft tissue.

Additionally, the enamel dulling effects of coffee, soda and everyday foods are reversed with Day White ACP. ACP has been shown to restore enamel luster. Ours are the only take-home whiteners with patented ACP technology. So not only will you have whiter teeth, you will have a bright, white, healthy smile.

If you have any questions, ask your dental professional who is there to help maximize your smile.

Using Day White ACP means the whiter, brighter smile you dream of can be yours in just a few days.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is tooth whitening?

  • It's a bleaching process that lightens discolorations of enamel and dentin. The system uses a mild solution retained in a custom-fitted tray that is worn over your teeth.

What causes tooth discoloration?

  • There are many causes. The most common include aging, consumption of staining substances (coffee, tea, colas, tobacco), trauma, nerve degeneration, and old restorations. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.

Who may benefit from tooth whitening?

  • The vast majority of people will benefit from tooth whitening. However, there are some cases where the treatment may not be effective. A dentist may determine viable candidates for the process through a thorough oral examination and diagnosis. Darker stains, such as those caused by antibiotics, may take longer to respond to treatment. The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient, depending on the structure of the teeth, the number of applications, and/or the duration of time that the system is used.

Is the process safe?

  • YES! Research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth with Carbamide Peroxide or Hydrogen Peroxide under the supervision of a dentist is safe for teeth and gums. In fact, many dentists consider this whitening process the safest cosmetic dental procedure available today.

How does it work?

  • The whitening gel is placed in a thin bleaching tray that fits over your teeth. As the active ingredient in the gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin and bleaches the coloured substances. The structure of the tooth is not changed; only the tooth colour is made lighter.

How long does it take?

  • Results are usually seen after the first application. Maximum results generally occur when the process is continued for 10-14 nights. Nite White Turbo ACP results are seen in 3-6 nights.

Are there any side effects?

  • Some people experience temporary increased tooth sensitivity to cold during the treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after interruption or completion of the treatment. Patients using Nite White ACP/Day White ACP are less likely to get tooth sensitivity.

How long do the results last?

  • The teeth will always be lighter than they once were; however, some patients may need a tooth whitening "touch-up" for 1-2 days, once or twice a year. In order to maintain the whitest tooth shade possible, it is best to avoid substances like coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco.

Beyond Whitening

Every child starts off in life with beautiful white teeth, but strongly coloured foods and drinks like coffee, tea and cola can discolour the surface of your teeth. After a time the staining can penetrate deep inside of your teeth. Just like white clothing that picks up dye, they can never regain their original brightness. The beyond whitening system cleans both the surface and the internal structure of the teeth.

The whitening process will whiten teeth for people that have teeth stained by smoking or substances, like tea or coffee. It can also whiten teeth stained by tetracycline, specked by fluoride, or yellowed by medication or hereditary discolouration.

The science of tooth whitening has been in development for over a hundred years, the beyond system has taken whitening to a new level of safety and comfort. Their combination of cold light technology and proprietary gel formulation combines to whiten teeth to their brightest in one hour.

The beyond cold light is a tooth whitening machine that uses a narrow beam of high-intensity blue light with a wavelength of between 480 and 520 nanometres, any harmful infrared and ultraviolet light is removed with an special optical process.

The beyond cold light is used to activate the Hydrogen peroxide gel that has been placed onto the teeth. This helps to oxidize the gel which in turn whitens the teeth, restoring them to a beautiful white.

This technique whitens your teeth right away, and has no side effects. Unlike some whitening treatments, the beyond system whitens without damage. The beyond system uses cold light at a low temperature, it can't irritate the nerves of the teeth. The whitening fluid is water based and doesn't come into contact with your gums and will not damage your tooth or tooth enamel.

Tests have proved that after whitening with beyond the teeth score from 5 to 14 points higher on the VITA scale. Vita is a universal shade guide, which determines the shade that your teeth are. The results of the whitening will depend on the discolouration of the teeth in the beginning, but the end results will be whiter and brighter.

How long the whitening lasts will vary from person to person, and it does depend on your diet. Normally the effects can last for up to two years.

 

Whitening Process:

If you decide that you wish to have whitening the first step is to book a 5 minute appointment with the dentist. He will then be able to access your suitability for the whitening process. The whitening process is only able to whiten natural teeth. Crowns and fills can not be whitened. The first step for your whitening appointment is to coat your gums with a liquid rubber. This is done as a protective measure to ensure that the whitening fluid can't come into contact with them. The liquid rubber is then cured with an ultraviolet light, the same that is used if you have a composite filling.

The whitening gel is then placed on the tooth surface. The cold light tooth whitening machine is then placed in front of your teeth, and is then activated for appropriately eight minutes. This activates the gel, and the whitening process starts. After the allotted time is up, the whitening gel is then cleaned from the teeth. Then the second application of gel is applied, and activated in the same way. This process it normally continued for three cycles.

Once all the cycles have been completed the cured rubber material is removed, and you can then
admire you bright new smile.

 

Aftercare

After the treatment for the first 24 hours you need to avoid, smoking, drinking coffee, tea, red wine, cola and other dark coloured drinks, as well as spicy and dark foods.

It is also best to avoid coloured mouthwash and toothpaste.

These items may affect the whiteness of your teeth.

You may experience some sensitivity from the whitening process but you should find that this will go within 24 hours. If the sensitivity persists then please contact your dentist.

 

Maintaining your smile

The whitening effects should usually last for two years, but this does vary from person to person, and also depends on your diet.

You can maintain your smile in the comfort of your own home. After a Beyond in-office whitening session many patients chose to maintain their new white smile with Pearl White toothpaste. Also available is the Beyond take-home maintenance kit.
