What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is the process of using physical or chemical methods to make teeth look whiter. Teeth whitening may be carried out in different ways and by using various procedures independently from each other or combined.

  • after dental surgical treatments,
  • for people who get radiation therapy,
  • during pregnancy or while breastfeeding,
  • in case of wearing braces
  • in case of teeth in inadequate health condition (broken teeth, cavities, teeth with injured enamel etc.)

Is it risky to whiten my teeth?

The teeth whitening method of SMILEPOINT is completely safe if the rules and steps involved are fully kept. Our products only change the whiteness of the enamel; the active agents do not penetrate the inner tooth. The teeth whitening treatment is not harmful to the gums, and it does not damage your teeth or enamel, it has no sensitising effects.

Why are my teeth discoloured?

Discolouration may be attributed to several reasons: colourings to be found in various foods and drinks (e.g.: coffee, tea, red wine, artificial colouring agents, as well as tobacco) are absorbed into the enamel, this type of discolouration may be removed easily with help of teeth whitening products.

Inherited discolouration cannot be changed by teeth whitening.

Is the use of LED lamps risky?

Thanks to the latest technological developments related to LED lamps, the proper use of LED lamps is absolutely safe. The cold light of LED lamps does not have any negative effects on the tissues surrounding the mouth or the mucous membrane. Special glasses should be worn to protect the eyes when using the lamp.

What should you be careful about after teeth whitening?

After teeth whitening, you should avoid smoking, eating or drinking (other drinks than water) for at least 4 hours because they can significantly affect the result.

Shall I expect aching, stinging sensation; does teeth whitening have any side effects?

The whitening gel contains a small quantity of peppermint scented oil, so it has a strong menthol taste. It does not cause any problems; the cool menthol sensation gradually disappears after application (similarly as after the use of toothpaste). No other side effects may be expected.

Does the product have any whitening effect on my fillings, false teeth or crowns?

The product does not have any whitening effect on teeth of unnatural origin (false teeth, crowns, fillings etc.) or dead teeth; of course it is not risky or harmful to them, either. The bleaching effect on grey discoloured teeth is strongly limited.

How much whiter can my teeth get?

The effectiveness of teeth whitening may be different in case of each individual; it depends on the original colour of your teeth, as well as on your lifestyle: consumption of coffee, tea, red wine, artificial colourings, tobacco etc. After using the whitening gel, your teeth will be at least 3 and at most 11 tones whiter; the average result is 5-6 tones whiter teeth.

How long can the results achieved be maintained?

This period is different with each individual and greatly depends on the person’s diet and lifestyle. The whitening effect may generally be maintained for 2-4 months.

What is the difference between the method of SMILEPOINT and the teeth whitening treatment carried out by dentists?

Dentists use a teeth whitening procedure with hydrogen peroxide at high concentrations, which requires utmost care and a complete diagnose of the health condition of your teeth and mouth before the treatment. These products containing concentrated active agents may only be used in dental treatments and under the supervision of a dentist.

SMILEPOINT products are registered trademark cosmetic products for teeth whitening, which are not harmful to your teeth or gums when applying them.
