In comparison with bleaches, ADA-Accepted products do not change the color of teeth. They can only remove stains from the surface of the teeth.
2 In-Office Bleaching
In-office bleaching or chairside bleaching procedure usually requires a single visit to the dentist. In this procedure, The dentist will apply either a rubber shield or a protective gel to your gums to protect them before using the bleach on your teeth. Whiteners used at dental clinics may have as much as 35% to 45% peroxide, while the over-the-counter whitening kits such as whitening strips or trays usually have just 7% peroxide.

During these times of pandemic, you may find at-home dentist who can provide you with a custom-made tray for at-home whitening. Your dentist will give you direction on how to place the bleaching solution in the tray and for what amount of time. At-home bleaching seems to be a preferred option if you feel more comfortable whitening in your own home at your own pace, with the guidance of a dentist. This out-of-office bleaching can take a few days to a few weeks.

The bleaching agent concentration in toothpaste is lower than what your dentist would use in the office. If you are planning about using an over-the-counter bleaching kit, discuss options with your dentist. Post discussion, look for a bleaching kit with the ADA Seal of Acceptance. The kit with the ADA seal means it has been tested to be safe and effective for teeth whitening.

Teeth Whitening Dubai – Aftercare
The longevity of results of a teeth whitening treatment depends on what you do immediately after treatment. The first 24 hours post treatment are especially important. One must follow the following rules for post-treatment care, in addition to your dentists guidelines:
- Avoid drinks such as coffee, red wine, fruit juice, dark sodas, beer, and black tea as they leave dark stains.
- Avoid foods such as soy sauce, cured meats, chocolate, and any kind of fruit that leave dark stains.
- No smoking, however limited use of e-cigarettes is ok
- Avoid red or blue colored toothpaste and mouthwashes.

Cauliflower, milk, pasta, white cream sauces, rice, eggs are some of good choices post-treatment. You can also include white cheese, skinless chicken breasts, peeled potatoes and clear alcohol with light mixers.

- Regular brushing your teeth with water or white toothpaste immediately after eating or drinking anything that stains.
- Maintaining a good daily oral routine, including mouthwash, flossing and brushing every morning and night. This will reduce the chance for plaque to build up.
