Teeth whitening is a bleaching method that removes stains and lightens the teeth so they look more attractive. There are various options targeting different parts of the teeth, such as take-home teeth whitening kits and in-clinic teeth whitening procedures.
Professional teeth whitening acts on both intrinsic and extrinsic stains. It often employs hydrogen peroxide, carbamide peroxide, or a combination of both.
Although most patients respond well to the treatment, it may not be suitable for people with certain dental restorations, tooth decay, gum disease or other severe oral health issues.
What Causes Teeth Discolouration?
Teeth discolouration happens for different reasons.
One of the biggest factors is enamel erosion. As the enamel thins out over time, it shows the yellow dentin from underneath more readily.
Types of Teeth Stains
Extrinsic staining. These are external stains that happen as a result of diet choices. As the name explicitly says, extrinsic stains form on the enamel, the outer layer of the tooth. The main culprits are foods and drinks like cola, red wine, and coffee. Such stains can be targeted by whitening strips and gels.
Intrinsic staining. This is the opposite of surface stains that you get from drinking coffee and smoking. They affect the dentin, the soft tissue below the enamel. Intrinsic stains occur for various reasons, including an injury to the tooth, certain medications, too much fluoride, or tooth decay.
Age-related stains. As we age, the enamel gets thinner, which allows the yellowish dentin underneath to show through.

Why Choose Pristine Dentalworks as Your Teeth Whitening Clinic?
Currently, we offer two types of BlancOne teeth whitening programmes that will transform your smile.
The typical improvement is 3/5 shades of white* for an immediately brighter smile
Only 10 minutes
The process starts with an initial shade recording. Our professional dentist will take pictures of your teeth, enabling us to track down your treatment progress.
Next is whitening gel preparation. There are two syringes in each pack containing the red-coloured bleaching gel and the activator. The contents are combined.
A mouth dispensing tip is placed onto the syringe with the whitening formula.
The gel is then applied to the teeth using circular movements. Our specialists aim for a 1-2 mm thickness. Once that step is over, the technician will shine activation light over your teeth, typically blue light. The timer is set to 10 minutes.
When the time is up, the dentist will wash away the remaining whitening gel and record the final shade.
4 whitening cycles, 4 mins each
10 shades whiter
The enamel is not dehydrated
The temperature within the pulp chamber does not increase during the professional treatment
No desensitising agents are used to whiten teeth
The BlancOne Ultra treatment is even more powerful than its predecessor. It takes only one session to get up to 10 shades whiter teeth without dehydrating your enamel.
When the whitening products are applied, a light activator is directed at the teeth for four consecutive times.
You will be able to see the results right away. They will gradually improve over the next few weeks.
Get a perfectly white smile at our teeth whitening clinic in Singapore without the hassle of whitening gel and strips. You can achieve the desired results in just one session, with no effort on your part.
How to Maintain Your Teeth White After the Treatment
There are certain things you should or should not do after your use a teeth whitening kit or professional teeth whitening procedures.
For starters, you should maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth daily. Do not let food residue sit in your mouth for too long.
Second, use straws when you have to drink beverages that may stain your teeth. Otherwise, you risk undoing the beautiful results. Speaking of foods, avoid dark chocolate and dark sauces, coffee, sour fruit sauce, and acidic food.
Needless to say, you want to floss twice a day. Last but not least, visit your dentist regularly to remove tartar or fix other problems as soon as they occur. This will help you maintain white teeth for longer.
You will have to sustain the results with home kits or in-office procedures every once in a while.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which treatment is best for teeth whitening?
The best teeth whitening treatment is in-office bleaching. In-office teeth whitening utilises high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide or another bleaching agent and it is performed by a dental expert.
If you have one or two teeth that appear to be more yellow than the rest, you can use porcelain veneers to camouflage that. However, in order for dental veneers to work, your healthy teeth should be filed down and that's not a good idea.
Other options include laser and LED light but they are not so common in dental clinics.
Can I get my teeth whitened if I have an implant?
Yes, absolutely. You should keep in mind that the artificial tooth will not become any whiter than it already is. This means that if you want the colour of your implant to match the rest of the teeth, you should have the crown re-made.
Is in-office teeth whitening better than teeth whitening kit?
Yes. It is safer and quicker, and the outcome is unparalleled. With take-home kits, you should repeat the procedure several days straight in order to get decent results. They are more efficient on extrinsic stains.
Is laser whitening better than bleaching?
Not necessarily. It requires multiple sessions to perform. Such treatments tend to be more costly than both take-home kit treatments and in-office procedures.
Can I drink alcohol after teeth whitening treatment?
You should stay away from red wine and other types of alcohol that can stain your teeth for at least 48 hours after the whitening treatment.
Can sensitive teeth be whitened?
Yes. The best way to make it work is to have an in-office whitening procedure instead of attempting to whiten your teeth at home with some over-the-counter strips and gels. Do let your dentist know about your tooth sensitivity problem so they can recommend the most suitable treatment options.
How many teeth whitening sessions do I need?
In most cases, you will need only one session since in-office whitening systems use a higher concentration of bleaching agents. This allows for better and faster results.
Are the teeth whitening treatment results permanent?
The results are long-lasting but not permanent, given that you will continue to use your teeth to eat. A lot of foods and drinks can cause teeth stains; therefore after a while, the whitening effect will start to fade away.
Do teeth whitening treatments have any side effects?
Yes, every treatment can have both positive and negative effects. Teeth whitening can lead to sensitive teeth and sensitive gums. It might lead to gum irritation too. Sometimes, patients don’t get a uniform colour after the procedure because every tooth responds differently to bleaching.
Does whitening teeth weaken teeth enamel?
No. According to the American Dental Association, whitening doesn’t damage the enamel surface. The enamel is a hard tissue and it can withstand exposure to the bleaching gel. If you use a take-home kit, though, and you leave it on for too long, you may develop tooth sensitivity.
Can your teeth crack from whitening gel?
No. Your teeth will not crack from teeth whitening. Despite that, it is essential that you whiten your teeth at a dental office where the whole process will be supervised by a dentist. If you attempt to do it on your own, you may damage your gums.
How long after teeth whitening can I drink coffee?
Your dentist will probably recommend that you avoid dark-coloured beverages and foods, coffee included, for at least 48 hours after your whitening procedures. These rules apply regardless of whether you are using a take-home whitening kit or you are having your discoloured teeth whitened by a dentist.
How long does it take for teeth pores to close after whitening?
The pores will close after 24-48 hours. It’s different for everyone, so you should allocate enough time before you go back to your dietary and lifestyle habits.
What can I drink instead of coffee when whitening teeth?
There are other alternatives to coffee if you need something to keep you alert and awake, although they may not taste as good. You can try green tea and matcha tea.
Can I whiten my teeth while wearing braces?
No, and you should not attempt to do it unless you're aiming for an even colour. While bleaching gels can successfully whiten the surfaces they are exposed to, they cannot get under the brackets.
It may seem like a smart idea while you are wearing your braces but once you complete the treatment and the appliance is removed, you will notice dark marks on your front teeth. On that note, a take-home whitening kit isn't going to deliver great results either.
Does teeth whitening without peroxide work?
It can work but the results are milder and temporary. Many types of toothpaste resort to non-peroxide gel, baking soda or charcoal to whiten the teeth. The best whitening agent remains hydrogen peroxide.
