i highly recommend CREST WHITE STRIPS, they're cheap on amazon. ONLY get the PROFESSIONAL ADVANCED SEAL kind! the other ones in their line SUCKS and are ineffective!

Hi Gf

Do you mind fowarding me some info with regards to what you can offer and pricing on this teeth whitening ?

How is your service and rates compared to those in National Dental Centre ?
Are you a qualified dentist or you only specialized in teeth whitening ?

Btw, my email is tanchris76@yahoo.com.sg

Your advice is much appreciated.
Thanks

Can you e-mail me(adre_@hotmail.com) your clinic details as well as prices and contact details?

I would also like to know about the sensitivity of teeth. Is it really a bother for most? I know that for some it is really bad, but will it be a factor for everyone to a certain degree?

Do get back to me on this...

Thanks!


Honestly, in my opinion, most people will experience some sensitivity during in-office whitening procedures. This sensitivity is usually tolerable.
The feeling is a bit like taking very cold water.
Of course, there will be the minority where the sensitivity is really bad, and there'll be the minority where there is absolutely no sensitivity.
(Some people can even fall asleep during the procedure)
So it varies, but I think most people will have some sensitivity which is bearable.

Cheers
GF

1. Ask your dentist if you're a good candidate for whitening, since results can vary. Yellowed teeth generally lighten well; darkened grayish or brownish teeth may not.

2. Try over-the-counter products, which have low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide. A dental tray and gel kit can be used for a short time each day to lighten teeth one to two shades in two weeks, at best. Whitening strips cover the six front teeth--which must be even--for similar results, and keep peroxide on teeth and off gums. Paint-on gels get similar results and cover more teeth, but can be messy to use. Hydrogen peroxide works faster than carbamide (see Step 3), but takes longer to get results and deactivates faster. These are the least-expensive treatments to use when staining reoccurs due to beverages and smoking.

3. Use a dentist-made tray at home twice daily for an hour for a couple of weeks, or wear it overnight. The gel's active ingredient is 10, 15 or 20 percent carbamide peroxide, which is gentler than hydrogen peroxide. Teeth could lighten several shades depending on the strength of the gel used. Higher percentages work faster but also increase the chance of teeth sensitivity. Ask your dentist for whitening products that include fluoride to reduce sensitivity. Cost: $300 to $450.

4. Whiten your teeth by up to 10 shades in one 60- to 90-minute session with a potent, light-activated bleaching formula of 35 percent hydrogen peroxide. Cost: $500 to $1,100.

5. Consider porcelain veneers or bonding if you have conditions where bleaching isn't effective, such as tetracycline or intrinsic staining. Bonding is a resin that's contoured over teeth. Veneers are thin porcelain manufactured in a laboratory. Cost: $500 to $1,500 per tooth for porcelain veneers, $150 to $300 for bonding.

6. Keep in mind that two to three weeks of whitening by over-the-counter products equals one week of overnight tray treatment from the dentist--and may well equal one hour of the light-activated treatments.
