Effects of Fluoride on Teeth Whitening
Effect of Fluoride on Teeth Whitening
With the increasing demand for treatments to enhance aesthetic appearance, tooth bleaching is becoming a more
common procedure in dental clinics. Intrinsic tooth discoloration is caused by incorporation of chromatogenic material
into dentin and enamel during the tooth development stage or after eruption. Current vital and nonvital bleaching techniques employ oxidizing agents such as hydrogen peroxide or peroxide releasing agents to brighten teeth.
Nevertheless, studies have found that fluoride which is commonly used in dentistry to strengthen enamel (which is the outer layer of your teeth), while beneficial for the teeth and helps to prevent cavities, might reduce the effectiveness of the teeth whitening agent.
Effective Teeth Whitening
Wellaholic has advised the non-usage of fluoride 24 hours after teeth whitening. However, with new studies, we will not include any toothpaste for teeth-brushing before and after the TeethWhite treatment to improve the efficacy and effectiveness of the teeth whitening procedure. We will continue to offer toothbrushes as part of our hygiene practice for teeth whitening.
