Teeth Whitening: Everything you need to know
Teeth whitening has become a popular solution for people looking to improve the appearance of their teeth. It is a cosmetic treatment that uses chemicals to remove stains and discoloration that have built up on the teeth over time. In this article, we'll look at what teeth whitening is, how it works and how much it can cost. We will also explain why Cheeze is a great place to get your teeth whitened.
What is teeth whitening?
Sometimes scaling is not enough to make your teeth white again. Sometimes it is necessary to resort to teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a procedure that uses chemicals to lighten the color of your teeth. Teeth are made up of two main layers: enamel, the clear outer layer, and dentin, the darker inner layer. Over time, stains form on the enamel of the teeth, whether from drinking coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco or other foods and beverages. These discolorations can also be caused by aging or by certain diseases. Although not quite white teeth do not necessarily mean that they are healthy, it is always nice to be proud of your smile!
Tooth whitening works by using a gel that penetrates the enamel to reach the dentin and lighten the color of the tooth from the inside. There are two main types of tooth whitening: in-office whitening and home whitening.
Professional in-office bleaching is performed by a dentist in his or her office. The method is relatively simple and the session is quite quick. The dentist applies a whitening gel to the teeth and uses a special light to make the gel work. The treatment usually lasts one hour and the results are immediate. It should be added that this is one of the most common treatments in the dental world.
Home whitening is done with a tooth whitening kit provided by a dentist or purchased at a pharmacy. Nothing too technical here either. The kit contains a whitening gel that is applied to the teeth using custom-made dental trays. The home treatment can take from a few days to several weeks to produce a visible effect, depending on the products used and the concentration of the gel.
How much does teeth whitening cost?
The price of teeth whitening can vary depending on the type of treatment and geographic location. In general, in-office whitening costs more than at-home whitening. The average fee for in-office whitening is approximately CHF 500 to 800, while the price for an at-home whitening kit can range from CHF 100 to 300. It is important to note that costs can vary considerably depending on the region, the dentist and the quality of the product used.

Some information to know before making an appointment
The results of tooth whitening can vary depending on the nature of the enamel and the oral hygiene habits of each individual. It is important to note that crowns, veneers or other types of dental restorations will not be lightened by bleaching, which could result in a difference in shade with natural teeth.
Certain dental conditions such as dentin hypersensitivity, gum recession, tooth cracks, cavities or defective fillings may aggravate or prolong the sensitivity that normally appears within 24 hours of the start of the teeth whitening treatment. These individual details can be discussed with your dentist at your appointment.
