Hi! I am having my wedding soon, and I would like to whiten my teeth before that. What treatment options do I have? I want it to be quick and effective.

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Hi Joyce,

Firstly, congratulations and here’s wishing you a great wedding!

Dr Lam has already done a wonderful job outlining the ins and outs of tooth whitening treatment and the rough duration of the various tooth whitening options.

As she has rightly mentioned, it all boils down to the date of your wedding and also your schedule leading up to the wedding and/or bridal photoshoots.

In my experience, after presenting the full suite of treatment options, an overwhelming number of my own patients do tend to opt for the in-office tooth whitening prior to their weddings as this is of course the quickest and most time efficient. However, do not rule out take-home whitening kits if you have the time to spare (approximately 2 weeks) as they too can deliver an effective result at marginally lower cost.

Have a chat with your dentist and he/she should be able to tailor a program best suited to your needs.

Hi Joyce,

Thank you for your question!(:

There are various ways to whiten your teeth. In order of the “efficiency” and “effectiveness” as what you mentioned, I would rank them accordingly as such from fastest to slowest:

  1. In office teeth whitening (in the dental clinic)- generally an hour or so
  2. Take home teeth whitening kits (from a dentist)- may take days to 2 weeks
  3. OTC teeth whitening products- variable effects

Teeth whitening effects are generally “quickened” when the concentration is higher. However with higher concentrations, there is increased chances of having temporary teeth sensitivity. It may be wise to speak to your dentist and see if he recommends application of desensitizing agent on your teeth, or even prescription of NSAIDs (painkillers) prior to treatment.

Depending on the date of your wedding, you may also consider the option of take home teeth whitening kits, which generally has a lower concentration of the active ingredient. This may thus maybe lessening the side effect of temporary teeth sensitivity, but this would entail a longer usage time to achieve the same results.

Hope this would help you in making your final decision!(:
