What is home bleaching?

Home bleaching is a method of whitening your teeth from anywhere and in a very short time. It involves using a bleach-based product to remove discolouration from your teeth. The active ingredient in these products is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which breaks down into oxygen molecules that penetrate the enamel and dentin layer of your tooth and dissolve stains and discolouration caused by eating, drinking, smoking or ageing. Dental trays or other at-home whitening kits are available both over-the-counter and in dental offices for professional use. When used correctly, at-home whitening can be very effective without damaging tooth enamel. However, as hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide are not tooth-friendly ingredients, at ALPINE WHITE we offer you at-home teeth whitening products without peroxide gel. Read more about this below.

There is a wide range of dentistry whitening systems available, here are some examples:

  • Whitening Strips
  • Whitening Pens
  • Whitening trays
  • Custom trays
  • LED lights for teeth whitening
  • Tooth Whitening Powder
  • Whitening toothpastes
  • Tooth whitening mouthwashes
  • Teeth whitening chewing gum

How long does home teeth whitening last?

The effects of home teeth whitening can last up to several months, depending on the type of bleaching techniques you use to whiten teeth and how well you take care of your teeth. It is important to know that whitening results vary from person to person, so you should consult with a dental professional before having a whitening treatment. You can easily do this at our ALPINE WHITE Studio.

If you use an over-the-counter product or follow the instructions carefully when using a teeth whitening kit, you should be able to maintain your bright white smile for some time. Nevertheless, is important to remember that the effect is not permanent and you may need to touch up regularly to maintain the desired level of whiteness. However, the effect usually lasts up to 18 months. Avoiding discolouring foods and stimulants such as coffee, black tea and red wine will also help the results last longer. And don’t forget your regular oral care as well as floss.

Procedure for home bleaching

The procedure for home bleaching depends on the product and may vary accordingly.

However, to get started with home bleaching, you should follow the steps below: First, make sure you have all the necessary materials, such as a bleaching tray for your mouth and gel syringes filled with bleaching solution. It's best to read the instructions thoroughly before use so that you can clarify any questions you may have. And make sure that fillings cannot be whitened.

The benefits of at-home whitening

One of the most significant advantages of at-home beaching is that it is inexpensive. Professional bleaching treatments can be expensive, especially if they are done several times a year. Home bleaching kits are much cheaper and often contain enough content for multiple applications. Plus, home bleaching is convenient because you don't have to take time out of your day to visit a dentist's office, but you can do it in the comfort of your own home whenever it fits into your schedule. Finally, with home bleaching, you can choose how much and how quickly you get results - so if you just want a small difference or don't have time for longer sessions, this is the method for you.

The disadvantages of home bleaching

One disadvantage of home bleaching is that it's not as effective as a professional bleaching treatment and you need to bleach over several days to get the same effect. Professional whitening treatments, on the other hand, are usually carried out in a dentist's office and involve not only stronger but often aggressive bleaching agents. There is an increased risk of side effects such as gum irritation or tooth sensitivity when using home kits without the supervision of a professional. Moreover, restorations cannot be bleached. Home whitening products may not be strong enough to achieve the desired effect if your teeth are severely discoloured due to injury or age-related yellowing. However, at ALPINE WHITE we offer you tooth-friendly bleaching methods, which we will introduce you to in the next section.

The Whitening Strips

With Whitening Strips, you can achieve up to 7 levels of tooth whitening in just 7 days. The Whitening Strips are suitable for every tooth position and whiten your teeth sustainably and safely. You wear the strips for 1-2 hours and thus achieve an optimal result. You can do this practice while doing sports, cooking, riding the train, or wherever convenient. As the colour is transparent, the Strips are hardly visible. They can also be custom-fitted to your teeth when applying them. That is why they are optimal for every tooth position.

The Whitening Strips Sensitive

The Whitening Strips Sensitive are the same as the standard Whitening Strips but for sensitive teeth. Because with us you get whiter teeth despite sensitivities. The Whitening Strips Sensitive are mildly concentrated and whiten your teeth sustainably and safely. 

The Whitening Kit

With our Whitening Kit, you can whiten your teeth gently and for a long time at home in just 15 minutes a day. By using the UV-light Kit, your teeth will whiten faster than with the Strips. So if you want to whiten your teeth in a short time, the Whitening Kit is just right for you. The kit is also suitable for all tooth positions and the Whitening Gel is gentle on your teeth.

Our Colour Corrector Serum conjures up radiant white teeth in just 2 minutes. The violet tooth serum neutralises the yellowish colour pigments and thus enables you to achieve the desired result.

Afterwards, you will immediately notice that your tooth colour is much brighter and the tooth surface is smooth. The serum is not only good for teeth whitening but also for optimal dental health. With the Colour Corrector, you get an instant effect in a short time.
