Teeth whitening is the most common dental procedure in the world with regards to improving the appearance of teeth and better smiles. It is a cosmetic procedure that does not pose any adverse effects on the teeth but enhances your smile and helps boost confidence.
At Dr. Paul’s Dental Clinic, we perform professional in-office teeth whitening in Dubai as well as provide you with whitening trays for at-home whitening as part of our general dental services.
Teeth whitening is a simple and non-invasive dental treatment that can lighten dark-coloured teeth and helps bring your best possible smile.. At Dr. Paul’s Dental Clinic, we offer various types of teeth whitening treatments.
For the quickest and most efficient whitening process, you need to get professional teeth whitening treatment . A professional dental whitening treatment can whiten your teeth anywhere from two to four shades.
The whitening solution or gel contains an active bleaching agent, typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, in varying concentrations. When the whitening solution is applied to your teeth, the active agents work on those areas causing dark-coloured teeth to become bright and white.
Depending on how severe the discoloration is, teeth whitening can be done in a single session or multiple sessions. A single session can take anywhere between 30 to 60 minutes. Philips Zoom! Whitening is the gold standard in teeth whitening and can whiten your teeth by several shades in a single session.
Zoom! is an innovative dental whitening procedure that can effectively lighten the discoloration of the enamel quickly. Zoom! Whitening treatment involves the use of the Zoom! Advanced Power Chairside Lamp that expedites the bleaching process, giving you whiter and brighter teeth in an hour or two.
At Dr. Paul’s Dental Clinic, we will first determine whether Zoom! is the right option for you by conducting a comprehensive oral exam. Once we make sure your teeth are healthy and undamaged, we will start the whitening process.
We will first apply a layer of protective gel on your gums and then apply a layer of bleaching gel that typically contains a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide, on your teeth. To accelerate the whitening process, we use the Zoom! lamp that emits cool and intense UV light.
The gel will be allowed to sit on your teeth for about 15 minutes as the Zoom! light continues to activate it. This process will be repeated three times in a single session, making the entire process complete in less than an hour.
Once the treatment is completed, you will see a dramatic difference in the whiteness of your teeth.
Teeth whitening is not a permanent process and if you continue to eat stain-inducing foods, the brightness of your teeth will not last. To keep your teeth white, Dr. Paul’s Dental Clinic recommends at-home whitening treatments that you can perform yourself using a home whitening kit and simple instructions.
At Dr. Paul’s Dental Clinic, we can create custom-fitted dental trays for you by taking impressions of your teeth. These trays offer a perfect fit for your teeth and will prevent the whitening agent from leaking onto your soft tissue and irritating them.
We will instruct you on how to place a small amount of bleaching agent on the tray and place it on your teeth. These trays can be worn for up to four hours a day for a week or two.
A tooth that has undergone root canal treatment may darken over time and this change looks very obvious when compared to adjacent teeth. Fortunately, we at Dr. Paul’s Dental Clinic can manage the discolouration and restore your tooth to its former glory through cutting-edge endodontic whitening procedures.
We always have a pleasant experience with Dr. Marina. We have been going to her for all our dental treatments for more than 15 years. She is very professional, explains clearly what needs to be done and provides appropriate advice. Apart from being an expert she is also kind and so are her assistant and staff. We always take her leave with a happy smile. Dr. Paul’s clinic is well maintained, clean and safe with all the protocols in place towards safety of everyone in the current scenario.
When your doctor cares about you and treats you as if you’re family, you know that you are getting the best treatment possible. Dr. Marina has treated my first cavity from when I was 5 till the last cavity I have had at the age of 21. The reason why I still go to her is the immense understanding and patience she has for her clients. I have an issue where I cannot open my mouth for long periods of time. Dr. Marina always notices when my mouth is in pain and manages to finish the treatment on time while ensuring I’m the most comfortable that I can be. Another thing I love is how she always explains what she’s doing, during and even after the treatment process. Being aware of what’s going on in my mouth gives me a sense of control. I personally love listening to the dental science behind what she’s doing, it makes me feel like I’m on Grey’s Anatomy.
I have been visiting Dr. Marina over the past 15 years now. I have always cherished our relationship not only as a doctor-patient relationship but also as friends. Over the years, I have visited her for small issues like dental cleaning to root canal and other major issues wherein she always been a very patient listener, a very knowledgeable person with a steady hand, and always ensured my comfort. Post treatments as well she ensures that I am well and guides me that issues do not recur as far as possible. I really wish that there are more such doctors who are genuinely interested in their patient's wellbeing.
I have been having the treatment for the past one year, Dr. Binoy is a very good doctor in diagnosing and giving the right treatment. He is always available and is a very patient-friendly doctor. I strongly recommend him to anyone who requires a dental consultation.
No, a whitening treatment cannot remove stains and deposits sticking to natural tooth surfaces. This needs to be removed by routine scaling procedures. Whitening helps to counter the effects of intrinsic staining which are caused by changes to natural tooth structures, like discolouration due to certain medications, ageing, etc.
To ensure your teeth remain white and bright for a long time, you should follow good eating and oral care practices:
Depending on your dental care and eating habits, the Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatment should keep your teeth white and bright for 12 to 24 months. However, you need to exercise excellent oral hygiene and keep your routine dental checkup with Dr. Paul’s Dental Clinic to ensure your teeth remain white for a long time.
