Are your teeth discoloured?
Do you hide your smile or happiness because your teeth are yellow or stained?
Teeth Whitening is a very common and safe procedure, and is the most requested procedure in cosmetic Dentistry.
Systematic Teeth Whitening Bleaching System with Professional results
VivaStyle is the name of the advanced whitening system for vital and non-vital (dead and greying) teeth. The system comprises of a gel for tray application and a varnish preparation directly onto the tooth’s surface.
Many people ask for natural-looking white teeth. VivaStyle bleaching gel enables this to be fulfilled. There are ranges of different gels to satisfy the individual requirements and differing colours to change the appearance to natural white.
Kits are available for professional in-office or at-home application.
VivaStyle comes with carbamide peroxide concentrations of either 10%, 16% or 30%. This solution is applied in the dental office.
This active ingredient is proven to whiten teeth effectively and gently.
- The product is convenient to use due to the new composition containing potassium nitrate and as a result of the mild mint flavour
- Very comfortable due to the soft tray material
- Quick treatment time because of a short application time
Single Tooth Whitening
Sometimes a single tooth becomes discoloured, causing it to look out of place with the rest of your smile. In cases such as the aforementioned there are two treatment options available:
Intensified bleaching process: Whitening gel is applied to the internal surface of the tooth for a period of one to two weeks. Most people who opt for this treatment tend to experience successful results.
Porcelain veneer: In some cases whitening a single tooth is not an option, thus the placement of a porcelain veneer may be required in order to mask the discolouration. The colour of the porcelain veneer will be matched exactly with your remaining teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile.
ity may occur after treatment, but this usually lasts for a few hours and with the help of your practitioner this can be minimised.
What causes tooth discolouration?
There are many causes. The most common include ageing and the consumption of staining substances, such as coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discolouration.
Is whitening safe?
Yes. Extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a practitioner is safe. In fact, many practitioners consider whitening to be the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. Any tooth whitening product is not recommended for children or pregnant women.
How long does it last?
By following simple post-whitening instructions your teeth will always be lighter than they were before. To keep your teeth looking their best, we recommend flossing, brushing twice daily and occasional touch-ups with take-home gel. These are professional products designed specifically to keep your teeth at their brightest. They are available only through your practitioner.
Is there any difference between over-the-counter tooth whiteners and those provided by your practitioner?
Yes. Consulting your practitioner is always the first step to whitening your teeth safely. Over the counter strips, brush on gels and toothpastes can take weeks or months to whiten your teeth just a few shades. The practitioner can whiten your teeth an average of six shades in a few days, or in one hour using in-chair tooth whitening.
Are there any side effects?
Sensitivity during treatment may occur with some patients. Tooth sensitivity may occur after treatment, but this usually lasts for a few hours and with the help of your practitioner this can be minimised.
