Teeth Whitening for a Bright Smile
Do your stained teeth prevent you from smiling brightly? Or are you embarrassed to smile to your heart’s content because of your teeth?
Smiling openly and brightly can make your appearance better. Pearly white teeth are seen as an indication of good hygiene habits and cleanliness.
However, stained teeth not only look unappealing but they affect your self-esteem and confidence. Thus, if you are affected by your stained teeth in any way, get Teeth Whitening at Dentist Ahmed’s clinic.
Who should get Teeth Whitening in Dubai?
If you have stains or discoloration then you can get up to 8 shades of whiter teeth in one Teeth Whitening session.
However, it will; benefit a few people more than the others.
You are a perfect candidate for teeth whitening if you:
- Have healthy teeth with an enamel
- Your teeth have darkened with age
- You have spotting on your teeth either yellow or orange in color due to extrinsic discoloration
You will see the most beneficial results if you lie in this category.
Though you will also notice moderate results on gray and brown stains that exist because of the high concentration of fluoride in water or as a side effect of some medicines.
However, teeth whitening is not recommended to people suffering from periodontal or gum disease, or oral cancer.
Moreover, it is not fit for people whose tooth enamel is worn out and they have tooth decay (till that decay is treated).
Teeth whitening does not work on veneers and crowns and anything that covers the enamel.
You should get teeth whitening if you have Intrinsic and Extrinsic discoloration.
Extrinsic discoloration is visible on the teeth and occurs because of colored beverages and foods like coffee, tea, red wine and berries.
These things stain the outside of your teeth over time.
Intrinsic discoloration is usually inside the teeth and is due to medications, aging, infection or childhood illness.
While you may try over-the-counter kits and whitening toothpaste for extrinsic discoloration, Intrinsic discoloration can only be removed by a dentist.
Choose your method of teeth whitening in Dubai with proper consideration.
You can whiten your teeth in an in-office setting with our doctor who will carefully examine your teeth and previous work and carry out your procedure in a safe hygienic environment.
Or our doctors could also make you customized mouth trays to use with a weaker bleaching agent to use at home unsupervised.
Your last options are home remedies and at-home over-the-counter kits.
Choose according to the type of discoloration, previous dental work, treatment efficacy and cost.
First, our dentists will use a shield to cover your lips and gums in order to protect them from the bleach.
Next, they will use a whitening gel containing 20 to 40 percent of hydrogen peroxide or they will use a carbamide peroxide gel.
Even carbamide peroxide breaks down into hydrogen peroxide on your teeth to whiten and bleach the stains.
This gel is applied for 15 minutes to your teeth alongside heat in the form of a Zoom laser device like Philips Zoom Whitening.
The heat from the laser breaks down hydrogen peroxide to oxygen. As oxygen reaches the dentin and enamel it colors it white.
This process is repeated twice to thrice. The procedure wraps up in 45 minutes but the maximum time will go longer than 2 hours.
Care and Maintenance
You will mild discomfort from the heat in the Zoom laser.
You may also feel uncomfortable if you have a strong gag reflex
Rest assured, the process is too quick that you will not have to bear it for a long while. Moreover, it is painless.
Though, you may also feel a little sensitivity after the procedure.
Don't worry about that because our dentists will apply fluoride toothpaste or an anti-sensitivity gel immediately following the procedure.
They may also apply the gel before the procedure to avoid tingling sensation afterward.
Additionally, our dentists and dental hygienists will provide you with customized mouth trays to retain the results at home.
If you do not wish to have any further sessions, then these mouth trays can help you look after your teeth at home.
Our dentists will make a customized mouth tray that fits into your mouth perfectly.
Follow their instructions to know about the right whitening gel and the number of times you need to use it.
However, these mouth trays will not work the same as an in-office treatment session.
That is purely due to the fact that the concentration of hydrogen peroxide is much lower in over-the-counter whitening gels than those specifically used by our dentists.
After your session, make sure that you take good care of your freshly whitened teeth.
Do the following:
- Brush your teeth twice a day
- Avoid colored foods and beverages like cola, coffee, red wine and tea that discolor teeth heavily or at least drink and eat them rarely
- Smoking will stain your teeth back immediately. Do not waste your treatment and quit smoking to retain these results.
- Floss regularly
- Visit your dentist once every 6 months. Make it a regular checkup so that you avoid oral problems and further staining.
- Maintain good oral hygiene and keep checks on your oral health

Furthermore, intrinsic discoloration will not go away with over-the-counter kits.
Our highly qualified and trained staff will assist you in getting whiter teeth.

Hence, gums irritation is unlikely after the treatment.
