If you want a brighter smile to boost your confidence, teeth whitening is the answer.
There can be many reasons for desiring a whiter smile. And the best way to get whiter teeth is to get professional teeth whitening.
While brushing your teeth is an excellent way to get cleaner teeth, teeth whitening is what you need for yellow teeth.
In other words, Professional teeth whitening is a miracle solution for stubborn stains and yellow teeth.
First, let us help you with more information, so you don’t have to worry about your teeth’s appearance.
Stained teeth don’t look good. Period.
The way your teeth look can have a massive impact on your self-confidence.
Hence, it can cause you to be conscious of your smile.
Initially, teeth are never perfectly white.
They are always slightly off-white.
As a result of specific eating and drinking habits, your teeth may acquire stains.
Some of the common causes that stain teeth are:
- Chewing tobacco or smoking
- Poor oral hygiene, i.e., not brushing and flossing regularly
- Regular consumption of Coffee, Tea, Wine & Sodas
- Any trauma to the tooth or disease
- Certain Medications
As a result, teeth become yellow and acquire pigmentation inside the teeth as we age.
Many factors can cause stains on your teeth and make them look yellow.
However, many safe and effective ways could improve the look of your teeth.
2 types of stains that discolour your teeth and make them look dull and darker
1) Stains due to Internal factors (Intrinsic Stains)
Intrinsic stains are present on the inner layer of your teeth.
These stains may be due to certain medications or can also be age-related.
Therefore, intrinsic stains are difficult to remove, but with the help of professional teeth whitening treatments can be removed.
2) Stains due to External factors (Extrinsic Stains)
Extrinsic stains are on the outer layer or surface of the teeth.
These stains are due to specific eating and drinking habits.
Primary sources of such stains are tea, coffee, wine and sodas.
Above all, plaque development, smoking or chewing tobacco also discolours our teeth.
On the other hand, these stains are comparatively easy to remove.
Therefore, they respond well to regular professional cleaning and at-home or in-office teeth whitening treatments.
What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening or Bleaching is the process of lightening the colour of the teeth.
Professional Teeth whitening is a safe and effective treatment which can remove any discolouration and make your smile brighter.
Moreover, this is a low-risk procedure and is thus suitable for many patients.
However, It is ideal for people who have healthy teeth and gums.
It is the most commonly done Cosmetic Dental Procedure, and why not? It instantly brightens your teeth and lowers the tooth shade to 4-8 shades lighter.
But, one should always do it under a professional’s guidance.
Ask us which Professional Teeth Whitening Procedure is the best and most effective for you.
What are the options you have for Teeth Whitening?
There are primarily 3 options:
1) Zoom/ Light Accelerated Teeth Whitening
Light Accelerated teeth whitening is an in-office bleaching process that lightens the colour of enamel (outer layer) and dentin (inner layer).
An Advanced Power Chairside Light accelerates the bleaching process in this tooth-whitening procedure.
After a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, we can decide whether this professional teeth whitening procedure is proper for you or not.
Firstly, a proper evaluation of lifestyle and habits is done to ensure that the procedure is safe and effective for you.
Prior tooth cleaning and polishing are recommended.
Secondly, the bleaching gel is applied for three 15 mins cycles each.
Finally, this gel is activated by the light so that it can penetrate the deeper layers of the teeth to break the stains and discolouration, thus giving you the desired colour.
This entire procedure may take 45mins.
This teeth whitening procedure is unsafe for children and pregnant or lactating women.
2) In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is a simple and commonly done chair-side teeth whitening process.
A bleaching light is not required for this.
Most importantly, the procedure takes only about 30-45 mins.
The gel is applied to the teeth for 2 cycles of 8-15 mins each (depending upon the desired results).
Prior tooth cleaning and polishing are recommended.
3) At-Home Teeth Whitening
This teeth whitening procedure is done at home by the patient during the day or night, depending upon the patient’s comfort.
Firstly, we will provide you with custom-made trays and whitening gel to be used at home.
Secondly, instructions are given to the patient on how to place the gel in the trays and how much time.
However, to achieve desirable results, an at-home teeth whitening procedure may take days to weeks, depending upon the discolouration.
Most importantly, every patient responds differently to the treatment. Results achieved may vary for different patients.
A Dentist is the best guide to let you know which kind of at-home teeth whitening procedure is best for you as per your lifestyle and needs.
However, an important aspect is to follow the instructions given by the Dentist diligently. Otherwise, it may not get you the result you expect.
What would a professional teeth whitening cost you?
Teeth whitening cost depends on the type of whitening required and the level of discolouration in your teeth.
The number of sittings required to bring down the shade to your desired choice also determines the teeth whitening cost.
For instance, light accelerated teeth whitening is preferred for a drastic change in your tooth colour.
This can bring down the colour of your tooth to several shades lighter.
As a result, the teeth whitening cost is higher than the cost for in-office and at-home teeth whitening procedures.
Hence, a proper evaluation for the best results is a must.
Teeth Whitening cost
In-office – approx INR 10000/ upwards.
At-home – approx INR 8000/ upwards
Light accelerated/Zoom – approx INR 18000/ upwards

Is there any age limit to professional teeth whitening?
If you are wondering whether you are the right age for teeth whitening, then don’t worry.
We can fulfil your desire to get whiter teeth as long as you are above the age of 16yrs with healthy teeth and gums.
Besides, anybody can get teeth whitening done. No age (above 16yrs) is a deterrent factor for teeth whitening. It doesn’t matter even if you are 70 yrs of age.
Regardless, don’t think about your age if you desire whiter teeth.
Go ahead and give us a call. Reach us at 9971711810 or [email protected]
In conclusion, let us help you decide which teeth whitening procedure best suits your needs and age.
What are the side effects of Teeth Whitening?
Professional Teeth whitening is a safe and effective treatment.
Most patients who undergo whitening procedures at The Dentist experience few or no side effects.
However, some patients may encounter certain side effects:
Your teeth may develop some sensitivity during or after the whitening procedure.
However, this is temporary and subsides with time. We can apply a desensitizing gel layer to help you with tooth sensitivity.
The gums get irritated if the bleaching gel comes in contact with the tissues.
However, this is also temporary and goes away after the treatment.
Moreover, any side effects experienced are minimal with quality products and the best brands at our clinic.
Is Teeth Whitening permanent?
Teeth Whitening is not a permanent procedure.
Results achieved may last from a few months to a year or more. The effect varies from person to person.
Moreover, the eating or drinking habits one has will impact how long the effect of the procedure will last.
Do’s/Don’ts of Teeth Whitening
Always follow the instructions given by your dental professional.
However, one should keep specific considerations in mind to keep your smile brighter and whiter for a longer time.
- If you are a smoker, do not smoke for 48hrs after the treatment. The best is to quit smoking as it leaves a dark stain on your teeth.
- For 48-72 hrs, do not consume coloured foods like turmeric-based food and gravies, red sauces, or fruits like blackberries or blueberries.
- Avoid beverages like tea, coffee or red wine for at least 48 hrs.
- Do not consume acidic foods or drinks like white wine, sodas, etc.
- Avoid using coloured toothpaste or mouthwash for 48 hrs.
- Consumption of anything too hot or too cold may cause some sensitivity.
- Visit your Dentist for regular check-ups.
- Brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day is essential to maintain the effect of teeth whitening.
- Rinsing after you eat anything should be a part of your daily oral hygiene regime.
- Consume only light-coloured foods and drinks after your whitening procedure.
- Use sensitive toothpaste and mouthwashes to give you relief from any sensitivity. If the problem persists or is severe, don’t hesitate to contact your dental professional.
- You may require touch-up treatments every 6-12 months to maintain the colour and brightness of your teeth.
- Existing crowns, fillings or veneers will not whiten with this procedure.
What can I eat after my teeth whitening?
Ideally, for about 48-72hrs, after your professional teeth whitening procedure, avoid anything that could stain your teeth.
The best way to judge it is by comparing your teeth to a white cloth. Anything that will stain a white fabric can stain your teeth as well.
Hence, after 48 hrs of Teeth whitening, some of the foods considered safe for consumption are listed below:-
- White-sauce-based foods like white pasta.
- Milk (room temperature)
- White Curd/ Yoghurt (room temperature)
- Coconut Water
- Boiled potatoes
- White Cheese
- White Rice
- White Fish
