teeth whitening

Bright, white teeth are a modern beauty essential. Today, anyone and everyone in the public eye – from actors, musicians and models through to social media stars, politicians and high-profile businessmen – can be seen to have an impeccably white smile.

As we age, our teeth darken and start to lose the white enamel of their youth. Add lifestyle and diet to the mix, such as smoking and drinking tea, coffee, colas and fruit juices, and teeth become stained more quickly and start to look dull, all of which can add years to your appearance.

What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth Whitening is a process that lightens the colour of your teeth, restoring their youthful brightness and whiteness. As everyone’s teeth are unique with different natural shades of white or cream, the results will vary from one person to the next. For those who are good candidates for teeth whitening, the procedure can significantly lighten the colour of their teeth by up to eight shades.

Who is a good candidate for Teeth Whitening?

  • Men and women with good overall dental health
  • Men and women with discoloured or stained teeth who want to lighten the colour of their teeth by up to eight shades
  • For those who want visible results quickly and easily, in-office teeth whitening is the best option
  • For those who are happy to lighten their teeth at home safely and under the care of a qualified dental surgeon, at-home teeth whitening is the best option

Not everyone is a good candidate for teeth whitening procedures. If, for example, your teeth are exceptionally sensitive or you have extensive dental restorations such as crowns or bridges, it may be advisable to opt for veneers instead. What’s more, if you have dental health issues then these will need to be corrected before proceeding with any Teeth Whitening procedure.

Your dental surgeon will be able to advise on the best option for your individual case when you come in for a consultation.

What are the different options for Teeth Whitening?
At Cocoona, there are two different types of Teeth Whitening options available; In-Office Whitening or At-Home Whitening.

  1. In-Office Whitening

In-Office Teeth Whitening is the best option for people in a hurry who want ultra-fast results without the need for fiddly trays that have to be worn at home for a period of time. Cocoona patients can choose from the following techniques:

  • Zoom teeth whitening: a very popular procedure that can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades, Zoom is hassle free, painless and produces excellent results in a single session. Using an ultraviolet light activated unit in combination with hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel, the gel is applied on the surface of the teeth while the patient sits in the dental chair. The ultraviolet light is then directed at the surface of the teeth to activate the bleaching gel for 15 minutes at a time, after which the colour of the teeth is assessed. The procedure can be repeated up to four times in one session.
  • Laser teeth whitening: As the name suggests, laser technology is used to brighten the teeth, using the heat generated by the laser to activate a bleaching gel that is applied to the surface of the teeth as the patient relaxes in the dental chair. Laser teeth whitening penetrates deeply to remove stains at a molecular level, making light work of even stains that go deeper than the tooth enamel. In total, the process takes around 30 minutes and provides excellent results similar to that of Zoom, lightening teeth by up to eight shades.
  1. Home Whitening

If you’re looking for a cost-effective route to a gleaming smile and you’re not in a rush for the full results to show, then the Cocoona Home Whitening procedure may be for you. Home Whitening enables you to whiten your teeth at home under prescription and carefully supervised by your dentist for the best and safest results.

You will be given lightweight trays that can be filled with whitening gel, which will need to be worn for between 30 minutes every day to overnight, depending on the system opted for. These trays, which are as light and comfortable to wear as possible, will need to be worn for a period of between two to three weeks until the desired shade of whiteness is achieved. The trays are designed to fit closely around the teeth so that the gel comes into contact with all of the tooth surfaces without touching the gums. Depending on your individual requirement and the system opted for, you will either have trays made to measure for you or disposable, pre-filled trays that will adapt to the shape of your dental imprint.

How long does Teeth Whitening last?
On average, Teeth Whitening lasts for up to three years. You can ensure the effect lasts for as long as possible by avoiding use of tobacco products and not eating and drinking items that will stain your teeth on a regular basis.

How do I care for my teeth after a Teeth Whitening procedure?
Following a teeth whitening treatment, your tooth enamel will be porous and so it is very important to avoid all dark-colored foods and beverages for at least 48 hours. This includes tomato-based sauces, coffee, tea, cola and red grape beverages. Otherwise, you should practice good dental hygiene, brushing your teeth twice per day and flossing regularly.

Your dental surgeon will advise you on any special instructions that may be required to maintain the results of your Teeth Whitening procedure.

How much does Teeth Whitening cost?
For an accurate cost assessment, you will need to book an initial consultation with one of our dental surgeons. The cost of Teeth Whitening varies depending on the type of procedure you choose; for example, In Office Teeth Whitening will cost more than the At Home Whitening alternatives. Your dental surgeon will be able to give you an exact quote in line with your requirement and individual situation.

    I want to thank you for the great effort and expertise that you put in the hair transplant procedure which you did on me. You have fixed a big cut from a previous, very bad hair transplant in Jordan. It kept me very nervous and uncomfortable for very long time. Now, after conducting this surgery by you, I feel very very happy because the cut is almost gone. I like your personality and professionalism. I am really glad that I made a decision to come to Dubai and conduct the surgery at Cocoona Clinic Thank you very much.
