What Is Teeth Whitening?
Without shaving and coating, teeth whitening involves bleaching teeth by using a chemical to decompose the pigments of teeth
to bring out the whiteness of the teeth themselves. You will achieve natural brightness and whiteness, not artificial
whiteness like tiles.
How it Works:
The main component of whitening gel is adjusted urea peroxide and hydrogen peroxide, which are used in oxydol
(disinfectant). These contain an active whitening ingredient that penetrates your enamel in order to get to pigments, which are essentially discoloured molecules.
Oxygen molecules in the gel react with the discoloured molecules in your teeth, decomposing the pigments and whitening your teeth.
What’s The Difference Between Cleaning And Whitening?
Teeth cleaning refers to the cleaning of teeth by a professional, with the aim of removing stains caused by coffee, red wine and tea. Getting your teeth cleaned during dental check-ups can avoid periodontal disease.
On the other hand, teeth whitening refers to the process in which the color of teeth is made whiter. It involves the removal of stains and pigments with the use of certified chemicals.

Q1. Can any kind of teeth go through the whitening treatment?

artificial tooth, fillings and extensions.
Q2. How long will it take until my teeth turn white?

treatment needed, permanence and tooth sensitivity after treatment varies significantly across individuals.
Q3. How white will the result be?

of your teeth does not only depend on level of whiteness. The transparency, reflection of light and various factors matter as well. By diligently attending treatments, you will achieve not only whiter teeth, but also other beauty factors as well.
Q4. Once treatment is completed, will the teeth remain white permanently?
A4. Yellowing due to daily wear and tear is unavoidable. Therefore, it is recommended that you properly care for your teeth even
after treatment. After multiple treatments, teeth are more resistant against yellowing. Please take care and maintain your
teeth just like how you would take care of your hair and skin.
