Am I a Candidate for In-Chair Teeth Whitening?
Your Ramsgate dentist always evaluates your oral health before giving the okay for in-chair teeth whitening. If you’re a patient of record, this may be a simple matter of evaluating your recent dental films.
In some cases, especially if you’re a new patient or haven’t been to our clinic in a while, we may provide an exam, including x-rays, to make sure there are no underlying conditions that take you out of candidacy for professional teeth whitening.
Your dentist considers the health of your teeth, gums and any restorations. It's important to keep in mind that professional teeth whitening will not lighten restorations. However, these considerations do not mean you are not a good candidate. Your dentist or a member of our team will discuss all options with you and learn more about your smile goals to help you decide on the best course of action.
How Preventive Dentistry Helps You with Teeth Whitening
Visiting your dentist in Ramsgate regularly for dental exams and teeth cleans lays the framework for your oral health by lowering your risks for preventable conditions like cavities and gum disease. By keeping up with your oral health, it may also improve your candidacy for teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry options.
Apart from regular dental visits, it’s important to brush and floss according to the schedule recommended by your dentist.
Remember, taking care of your teeth and gums contributes to your oral health, but it may also make cosmetic dentistry a more viable option later on.
However, if you do have an oral health condition, we encourage you to arrange a consultation at Ayar Dental. We can evaluate your situation, provide treatment, and work to move you into candidacy for cosmetic dentistry, including teeth whitening.
In some cases, candidacy is as simple as providing a teeth cleaning prior to whitening. This removes the plaque and bacteria from your enamel, allowing the whitening gel to better penetrate your teeth.
Teeth Whitening to Improve the Appearance of Your Smile
Do you find yourself putting your hand to your mouth when smiling? Do you simply avoid smiling altogether because you don’t like your stained teeth? Have the years taken their toll on the colour of your teeth, giving them a yellowed look that is a natural by-product of ageing? The team in our dental clinic understands, and we may be able to help.
You might be surprised at how much of a difference professional teeth whitening can make. Unlike the disappointing results that often occur with over-the-counter teeth whitening options, most people find that professional teeth whitening provides the consistent, more dramatic results they had been hoping for. And because it is done under the care of dental professionals, most people don’t experience the sensitivity that often occurs with whitening kits purchased in shops.
Before you undergo professional teeth whitening, we always recommend a teeth clean to help give you the best results possible.
Ayar Dental Offer Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening
Also known as one-hour teeth whitening, this procedure takes place in our dental clinic near Sans Souci. The procedure starts with a quick preparation to protect the delicate tissues of the lips and gums, leaving only the teeth exposed. We will apply the whitening gel, which is used in tandem with the Zoom light to help penetrate teeth, breaking up stains and discolouration.
We leave the gel in place for about 15 minutes, repeating the procedure four times.
If you have a strong gag reflex, let us know beforehand. You might find sitting for the treatment to be somewhat challenging.
Teeth Whitening as Part of a Smile Makeover
Professional teeth whitening can dramatically whiten your teeth, but maybe you have other cosmetic dentistry issues you’d like to address such as crooked teeth, missing teeth, or even silver fillings that you wish were white.
In our dental office, we offer:
- Tooth-coloured restorations, including fillings
- Dental bonding
- Tooth replacement, including dental implants
- Dental veneers
- Orthodontics, including Invisalign
Because restorations don’t lighten with teeth whitening, your dentist can create a schedule that starts with a professional teeth clean and whitening. This approach allows you to choose restorations that are lighter in color. We can also work on a timeline that fits your budget and lifestyle.

Why We Recommend Whitening Your Smile with a Professional
In our opinion, professional teeth whitening is best left to professionals. A dentist or dental professional, after all, is familiar with your oral health and will only recommend teeth whitening if it is a safe option for you. When you purchase kits in shops or online, it is impossible to know whether the ingredients or concentrations are safe for your teeth and gums. We do not want you to damage your enamel or suffer through ongoing tooth sensitivity because a particular product or ingredient was not safe for you.
Additionally, whitening with a professional gives you predictable and even better results because kits are customised to fit your teeth, which means a uniform spread of the whitening gel and no spillage onto the gums.
Maintaining Your Teeth Whitening Results
We have found that patients who undergo professional teeth whitening in Ramsgate tend to start taking better care of their teeth because they are more satisfied with their smiles. After you’ve invested in treatment, it only makes sense to do what you can to ensure your whitening results last as long as possible.
We recommend that you avoid consuming foods and beverages that stain teeth, such as tea, coffee, cola, red wine, and so on. Tobacco products will also stain the teeth. As always, be diligent about brushing and flossing, and visit your dentist as recommended for check-ups and cleans.
