In terms of dental care, we all wish to have good dental habits, so that our teeth are as healthy as possible. The modern dentistry can offer dental improvements, by applying various dental cosmetic procedures. Our dentists in Dubai can perform various effective procedures to whiten your smile. Teeth are white by nature, but certain lifestyles can leave a mark on the color. Besides offering details about the teeth whitening procedures, we remind that any patient can receive information about the available dental implants in Dubai.
Why do teeth begin to stain and change the color?
Tobacco use, medication, foods and beverages, and age are the main causes of teeth losing their white color. In time, if you do not take good care of your denture and you do not consider the periodical dental check-ups, you will see the teeth have changed color into white-yellow or even worse in some cases. Smokers will develop green-yellow colored teeth, but fortunately, there are numerous methods that can help them regain the whitening of the teeth. Age is also a cause of why teeth start to change their color because the enamel gets thinner over time, and no brushing techniques will maintain the white color of the denture. If you have in mind whitening your teeth, we invite you to step into our modern dental clinics in Dubai and ask for this kind of procedure which can transform your denture quite much.
Dental implants in Dubai can be an excellent option for patients who want to replace missing teeth and enjoy proper oral health. Such a treatment can be made in a few days or weeks if it is about several teeth to be replaced, but regardless of the problems that arise, they will have a solution in our dental office. You must make sure that you contact us and that you make the desired appointment.
Teeth whitening methods in Dubai
As a patient at our dental clinics in Dubai, you can choose from three available methods to have a more beautiful smile:
- whitening methods – it assumes that the dentist will restore the teeth’s natural white, by removing stains, debris and plaque that can’t generally be removed by brushing;
- bleaching – this method brightens the teeth beyond their natural white and it can be done using substances that contain hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide;
- whitening rinses – these solutions can be part of the whitening process which can be prescribed at home after you have received a professional teeth whitening method in our dental clinic.
In-office bleaching can offer very good results in just one visit to our dental clinic in Dubai. The dentist applies a high concentration of peroxide gel that is held on the teeth for 15 or 20 minutes to even an hour. When you will opt for a whitening dental treatment in Dubai, you should know that our dentists will present you a standard shade guide, containing 16 shades of natural tooth color. When whitening your teeth, you can experience an up to nine shades whiter color. If you bleach them, the results are usually between two and seven shades. We have prepared a comprehensive video about the teeth whitening procedures in Dubai and their implications:
Professional teeth whitening methods in Dubai
Numerous patients step in our modern dental clinics in Dubai and ask for the proper method of restoring the denture’s perfect white. Even though it might seem as easy as we speak, things are a little bit different because a brighter smile involves a few essential steps. At the beginning, the Dubai dentist will make some dental x-rays and then will check-up the teeth, in order to see and detect any dental problem you are not aware of. Before any cosmetic procedure, a patient must have clean and healthy teeth, meaning that any signs of gingivitis or decay must be eliminated as soon they have been discovered. The next step is to plan a whitening method. For example, in our Dubai dental clinics, the most used and suggested method is bleaching. This can successfully brighten the teeth because the solution contains carbamide and hydrogen peroxide in an amount between 20 and 45%. The process is also called in-office bleaching and involves a gel and a mouthguard which are held on the teeth for a couple of minutes, depending on the doctor’s decision regarding the health of the teeth, and also on the wanted type of white.
The results are visible, but please consider that you might feel your teeth sensitive for a few days. In completion of the teeth whitening methods in our dental clinics in Dubai, your dentist can suggest you use whitening rinses at home which are safe solutions. As a recommendation, once you have received the teeth whitening procedure, please consider the main preservation methods: brushing and flossing the teeth, avoiding coffee, wine, and smoking as much as possible. As it is known, water keeps the teeth clean and healthy. If you are a coffee addict, make sure the water won’t miss your table and your overall diet, because the doctor recommends at least two liters each day.
Home whitening methods vs. dental clinic procedures
We all see different kinds of commercials presenting all sorts of whitening methods to do at home. Our advice, think twice before choosing the simple and cheaper solution. Even though teeth whitening kits might be approved by dental associations, you cannot proceed with these methods without having the acceptance of your dentist. Furthermore, it is a fact that the successful methods for teeth whitening are those made in a dental office, under strict supervision and guidance of your doctor.
Baking soda to brighten your teeth
Baking soda is not just an ingredient used in varied cake recipes. It is popular and also the main component found in toothpaste. This is a mild abrasive element that scrubs away the stains of the teeth and creates an alkaline environment proper for keeping bacteria far away. Using baking soda in addition to toothpaste a few times per month will help the teeth become brighter. This is a traditional teeth whitening method used for many years before dentistry developed as we know it today.
A complete dental check-up before teeth whitening methods
In our modern dental clinics in Dubai, the patients will receive a full dental check-up before any treatment. This is also available for persons interested in teeth whitening methods, as the dentist will have to verify the status of the denture, if the patients suffer from sensitive teeth if specific dental treatments are necessary before any teeth whitening method. We remind you that such a procedure will only be performed once the patient has a clean and treated denture, meaning there are no cavities, no tartar, no plaque or receding gums.
Dental veneers for your white smile
Instead of dealing with bleaching sessions for your teeth, you can receive dental veneers which are thin porcelain layers that can be placed on the teeth. There are many cases in which dental veneers are suggested by the dentist in Dubai, considering the fast restoration procedure and excellent results. Regarding the dental technique, the dental veneers are applied on the teeth with dental adhesive, as soon as a thin amount of tooth enamel is removed. We remind that patients with sensitive teeth will need additional treatments before dental veneers are applied.
Why choose a dental clinic for teeth whitening methods instead of home remedies?
Even though the market offers a wide range of dental products that promise instant teeth whitening, it is mandatory to step into a dental clinic and find out complete information about such items and about the available dental methods for changing the smile. It is a known fact that teeth whitening procedures have certain prices, but instead of repairing the teeth after using inappropriate dental products at home, it is best to solicit advice from a professional dentist.
How to maintain your teeth white
If you want a perfect and white smile you might want to adopt a few handy and useful methods as daily routines or habits, such as:
- quit smoking (this bad habit affects in a large amount the denture);
- adopt a healthy diet with vegetables and fruits which help your teeth stay strong and white;
- don’t forget to brush and floss at least twice per day;
- try to avoid coffee, wine or other drinks that stain the teeth.
Regular dental visits in Dubai
Teeth whitening procedures are available for anyone in search of a whiter smile and a different level of confidence. In addition to the treatments made in our clinics, the patients should be aware of the fact that periodical dental visits are required. Your dentist in Dubai can verify the status of the teeth and if other dental treatments are necessary, these can be performed in a single visit. You should also understand that maintaining a whiter smile means brushing and flossing the teeth properly each day and staying away as much as possible from beverages like wine and coffee which are the reasons why teeth get stained. Also, you should quit smoking and drink plenty of water if you want to maintain your teeth white for a long period of time.
Cosmetic dentistry to improve self-confidence
It is a known fact that a bright smile and attractive teeth provide a huge level of self-confidence in social circles. There are many people who have reservations about smiling with the entire mouth, if we may say so, and that because for many reasons. Some believe their smile is not attractive, or some might hide their teeth due to different esthetic problems, such as yellow teeth, cavities, missing teeth, and many more. This is where cosmetic dentistry intervenes, an important branch of medicine that continues to develop at a fast pace everywhere in the world, including in the UAE. It is quite simple to turn an unappealing smile into a bright one after a couple of dental visits.
The entire procedure is simple and formed of a few important steps that only a dentist in Dubai can explain.

Can a teeth whitening method continue at home?
Yes, in some cases, your dentist in Dubai can recommend specific teeth whitening procedures to do at home, as a continuation of the treatment started in the office. This doesn’t mean that you need to do complicated tasks, and in most cases, it refers to wearing specific mouthguards and solutions during the night. Teeth whitening methods made at home are not complicated as long as they are recommended by your dentist. You should never start such treatment by yourself if you do not have the acceptance of your dentist.
Teeth whitening methods for sensitive teeth
Sensitive teeth can be a real problem when it comes to teeth whitening methods. Some patients might not be good candidates for such treatments, but information like this can only be revealed by a set of analyses recommended by a dentist in Dubai.

The Dubai dentist will recommend specific treatments for sensitive teeth before starting teeth whitening methods.

Research regarding teeth whitening procedures
The dentistry field is extremely interesting for scientists and experts in the medical field, so varied researches reveal all sorts of debates, whether teeth whitening methods are dangerous or not. New studies detailed by experimentalbiology.org and cited by sciencedaily.com refer to a specific ingredient that whitens the teeth, and that can damage the denture if used in a large amount or inappropriately. The dentin layer which forms most of the tooth can be damaged by hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient of all teeth whitening solutions. However, there are no risks linked to today’s teeth whitening procedures, particularly if these are made in excellent conditions by experienced doctors.
