Teeth Whitening


Smiles are valuable.
Statistics reveal that we place a high value on our smiles. According to an American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry survey:
  • Virtually all adults (99.7%) believe a smile is an important social asset. 96% of adults believe an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to members of the opposite sex.
  • Three-quarters (74%) of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chance for career success.
  • And when respondents were asked, “What would you like to improve most about your smile?” The most common response was: whiter and brighter teeth. If you are not happy with your smile, teeth whitening may be a good first step.

Teeth whitening is an increasingly popular way to enhance smiles and boost confidence. . Your smile creates an immediate, subconscious, visual impact on people you meet. A brighter smile gives the impression of youth, vitality, radiant health, happiness, and warmth. A bright smile is perceived as a healthy smile. Our teeth naturally darken and dull with age, while yellowing and stains can occur due to regular consumption of tea, coffee, wine and tobacco products. Thankfully, professional tooth whitening is an easy process that can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth, giving you a brighter more confident smile. Our cosmetic dentists and the experienced dental team at Meraki Dental Studio offer both in-office (at the dental clinic) and at-home (DIY) teeth whitening treatments to help achieve great results.

Causes of Tooth Discolotaion
Deciduous (baby) teeth are typically whiter than the adult teeth that appear later. As we age, our adult teeth often become darker, yellower, or stained. This is partly why white teeth make people appear more youthful. Just as there are a number of ways to lighten or brighten teeth, there are also several different ways for teeth to become discolored. The main causes of darkened teeth are genetics, antibiotics, and certain foods, plus teeth tend to darken as we age. Internal tooth discoloration is caused by changes in the enamel of the tooth and the dentin. The main causes of internal tooth discoloration are exposed to high levels of fluoride, tetracycline, use of antibiotics as a child, developmental disorders, tooth decay, restorations, root canal issues, and trauma. External tooth discoloration is caused by factors outside the body, mainly foods and tobacco. The main causes of external tooth yellowing are smoking, foods with tannins, coffee, tea, carrots, oranges, and other foods.

Types of Tooth Whitening
There are various ways to whiten your teeth, but the two most common are in-office treatment and the do-it-yourself approach, with over-the-counter products. Your cosmetic dentist will work with you to build a cosmetic treatment plan that will effectively address your dental concern and meet your cosmetic goals. Professional teeth whitening administered by our dentist offers highly effective and safe results. Professional teeth whitening gels are designed to minimize side effects like tooth sensitivity often associated with over-the-counter whitening products.

In-Office Teeth Whitening
Professional tooth whitening in a dental office is the preferred whitening method because even though stronger agents are applied, the rest of the mouth, including the gums, is protected from these materials. The best whitening systems feature a buffer in the gel that protects the tooth enamel from damage, are extremely effective, and can transform teeth in a single office visit. Your teeth can literally brighten up to 10 shades in about an hour. In-office whitening affects only the front eight teeth and is a great jump start for take-home whitening, which is always part of an effective whitening program. Your dentist is best qualified to handle any issues that may arise from whitening treatments, such as tooth sensitivity. Today, most tooth sensitivity cases are easily managed. Tooth whitening can last for one or more years, depending on how well you take care of your teeth, and if you’re following up regularly with a home whitening product for regular maintenance.

How Teeth Whitening Toothpaste Works
Whitening toothpastes work by removing surface stains on teeth, not the ones under the surface. They do this by being more abrasive than other toothpastes, which is why your dentist may discourage you from using whitening toothpastes if you have complained of tooth sensitivity. More than anything, toothpastes are good for preventing stains, not removing them. At-home teeth whitening products from the chemist also contain carbamide or hydrogen peroxide, but in much lower concentrations. They also contain other ingredients for flavour and to help reduce the possibility of tooth sensitivity. The chemicals used in professional teeth whitening are hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide (which breaks down into hydrogen peroxide in your mouth, so hydrogen peroxide is still the active ingredient). Hydrogen peroxide penetrates the teeth and causes a reaction called oxidation, which breaks down the stain compounds.

The Structure of Your Teeth
If you look at teeth under a microscope, you can see that the hard outer layer, called enamel, is made up of a tightly packed crystal structure called rods. While this layer seems solid and smooth to the naked eye, it’s possible for the molecules that cause stains to get deep into the enamel by seeping between the rods. In order to remove stains, dentists use a chemical that can get down to where the stains are and break up them up using a chemical reaction.

Fillings and Dental Crowns
Some people don’t realize that whitening only works on natural teeth. Fillings and crowns are made of artificial materials that look like teeth, and feel like teeth, but chemically speaking, they’re very different. Most restorations are made from ceramic, porcelain, or composite resin. These materials do not react the same way to bleaching chemicals as your natural tooth enamel does. If you have large fillings or crowns, a dentist can recommend alternatives to bleaching for improving the appearance of your smile.

Safe, not sorry
Teeth whitening is now one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments in the market. However, with a mass of information and products out there, it is vital that you research what works, and what may potentially be harmful. It’s a good idea to go to your dentist to consult about whitening treatments as they can evaluate whether your teeth should even undergo whitening to begin with.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Am I a candidate for teeth whitening?

Just about anyone is a candidate for teeth whitening. At Meraki Dental studio, our dentists will assess your teeth and overall oral health to determine if you are a fit for the teeth whitening procedure.

Do I need an initial consultation before Teeth Whitening?

Yes, it is very important to consult your dentist prior to booking the teeth whitening appointment. It is also highly recommend that you have a cleaning done before teeth whitening. During your initial teeth whitening consultation, our team at Meraki Dental Studio will evaluate your teeth and gums to see if you will benefit from the treatment. Our team also checks for any decay / sensitivity development and keeps in mind any existing dental works such as crowns, fillings and veneers before recommending the appropriate treatment. After a careful review of your lifestyle, expectations and any concerns, our dentists will determine the teeth whitening option that will work best for you.

Is in-office teeth whitening safe?

Yes, for healthy teeth and it does not damage the enamel. The in-office whitening gel’s active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide which breaks down into oxygen and removes the stain to make your teeth whiter while leaving your tooth structure unchanged.

Why was I given a home whitening kit?

Home whitening kit along with a custom-fitted tray is provided to complement the in-office treatment. You may be required to wear the tray for an hour each day after the procedure, as directed by our dentists, for better results. Remember to brush and floss your teeth before you wear your whitening tray.

How long will the results last?

While teeth whitening results may last for up to a year, the duration may vary depending on your genes, oral hygiene and lifestyle habits, such as smoking and drinking.

How white should I go?

A naturally white smile is a wonderful asset anyone can have. Ideally, the color of your teeth should match the whites of your eyes.

Will I experience tooth sensitivity during or after the treatment?

It is not uncommon to experience tooth sensitivity during the first 24 hours following teeth whitening. Your dentist may advise you to take OTC analgesics like paracetamol or ibuprofen to relieve your discomfort. The feeling of sensitivity and soreness will gradually ease off after one or two days.

How can I care for my whitened teeth?

Caring for newly whitened teeth is easy! Maintain proper oral hygiene—brush your teeth twice and floss once on a daily basis, using a fluoride toothpaste. Get your teeth cleaned every six months or as recommended by your dentist. To maintain the white color of your teeth, avoid acidic and dark-colored foods and beverages like tea, coffee, red wine, sports drinks, carbonated drinks and sauces like tomato, soy and curry.

Nidhi Arora

I visited Meraki Dental Clinic with a problem related to my Gums. Now that i have been cured, i feel much happy and more confident and finally relieved. My Smile has been fixed. Thank you Doctor Harleen and her superb team! Can proudly say - She's my Family Doctor! Highly recommended to all.

Hema Singh

Dr. Harleen helped me with my tooth that was hurting me since 6 months now. I really thank her for the painless and quick treatment. After being treated by Dr. Harleen, I can say that I am no more scared of visiting "Dentists". The staff was very helpful as well and the clinic is very hygienic and well maintained. Thank you Meraki Dental Studio for relieving me of my problem.

Tejeesh Nippun Singh

Believing in the dictum that no news is good news, I have never ever visited a dentist in my 43 years of existence, till the time I met Dr Harleen - mainly for fear that a dentist might give me some bad news which I didn't want to hear. I think what clinched the deal in her favour - and compelled me to break my informal vow to not see a dentist - was her professional knowledge about her chosen field. It certainly adds to her advantage that she can empathise with a patient's apprehensions regarding a visit to a dentist, which makes her work doubly hard to ensure that each patient, including children, who come to her, have a happy, painless experience. She also makes an effort to keep herself updated about the latest developments & practices in dentistry, which inspires confidence in not just the patient who's visiting, but also to refer her as a dentist of choice to one's friends and family. Add to that her generally sunny disposition & warmth and one can safely say that Dr Harleen is one dentist whom you look forward to visit. One wishes her greater success in her profession.

Mehul Arora

Who doesn't love painless treatments especially when it comes to visiting a dentist. I am sure everyone has this fear of going to a dentist but not anymore. I am happily satisfied to share my case with Dr. Harleen, a very knowledgeable and warming dentist indeed. She explains and suggest treatments so nicely that the patient would want to trust her blindly. She believes in providing the patient with a complete oral health which not only prevents a person from future oral risks but also providing them with an aesthetically beautiful smile. The assistant and front desk people are also very caring and professional. So if you want to pamper your smile then this is the place. I have found my lifetime dentist for sure and recommend everyone out there to visit Meraki Dental Studio. Kudos to you and your team.

Somnath Majumdar

I would like to place on record an appreciation for Dr. Harleen Kalsi of Meraki Dental Studio, South Extension. My twelve-year-old son – Royen – required braces to correct the teeth alignment. He has always been apprehensive about the procedure. On his first visit itself, Dr. Harleen made him completely settled with the procedure and made him willing to take it on. The eventual teeth extractions were painless for him and say that he didn’t even realize when the tooth came off. The following sittings to put the braces and thereafter, were extremely comfortable and relaxing for Royen. He has been well taken care off. The team demonstrated the true spirit of ‘Meraki’ when Royen had visited them alone. They took extra care of him and went out of the way to arrange for his transport back home. They do put in a lot of heart & soul in their noble profession. I am glad that Dr. Harleen Kalsi, of Meraki Dental Studio is there to take care of my family’s oral wellbeing. All the best.

Mr. Rohit Bhatla

Meeting youngsters, such high tech advanced doctors loaded with advanced technology makes a lot of difference. It's an eye opener. Getting yourself treated at Meraki is an experience in itself.
