    1. Electric Teeth

      Yes, you can. However, just be aware that to keep the teeth as white as possible to avoid or limit the amount of foods that stain.

      You can have lots if you like, but ultimately, you need to be aware that if you are going to do this, the white colour of the teeth will dull.

    1. Electric Teeth

      Technically is possible. In many countries is is not advised or considered illegal to do so. Exceptions are typically going to be if there is specific medical reasons to whiten the teeth.

  1. Full Playthroughs

    What’s the difference between the gel you get from a dentist and the stuff you can buy online? Thanks!

    1. Potentially nothing, depending on where you live and what product you are buying. The rules and regulations are different from 1 country to another. For example in the UK, the online/over the counter gels are much weaker than the gels offered by the dentist. The weaker the gel the less effective it potentially is.

  2. My teeth are okay the one at the back is darker and I want to get it the same colour :/ but I don’t want it super white like Ross in that episode of friends. Super video tho helped a lot

    1. Your teeth/tooth does not have to be super white. How white it goes depends on how strong the whitening gel is and how long the tooth is exposed to that gel. Where most might whiten their teeth over a 2 week period at home with whitening trays, you might do it for just a few days.

    1. No, you cannot whiten them forever. Even professional whitening needs to be topped up every month or two. However, once you have had the initial whitening completed by a dentist, if you opt for whitening trays, you can then wear them for a few hours a month to keep your teeth white.

    2. They don’t usually. But many factors can affect the speed. What whitening process you used, your genetics, your diet, your age.

    1. No they would not. Subject to where your fillings are located it may not be much of an issue, but something to be aware of.

    2. @Electric Teeth Horatiu can also have his filling replace after getting professional treatment so it would match all the other tooth surfaces in his mouth.

    1. No you don’t have to. The more often you whiten, the whiter the teeth can potentially go, but there is a natural limit for all teeth. If your teeth get to a level of white you are happy with, you stop wearing the trays because you have reached a point you are satisfied with.
      Where on average whitening trays might be worn for 14 days, you may get 7 days in and stop because you are happy.

    2. With in office whitening, yes. You will need to pick a shade because that will determine the exact treatment and time in the chair. The teeth will dull after the process slightly. Dentists will usually advise what shade suits a person best.

    1. The teeth will naturally dull within the first 24-48 hours after professional whitening.

      Regular brushing isn’t going to dull the whitening treatment, it should help keep the teeth stain free.

      Food, drink & lifestyle will be the biggest impact on how quickly the teeth dull over the coming weeks and months. Genetics and your teeth play a part too.

  3. Will Electric Hygiene keep teeth whiter longer than Manual Hygiene.

    Oral Irrigator+Electric Toothbrush= Electric Hygiene
    Dental Floss+Manual Toothbrush=Manual Hygiene
    Below includes different set of Electric toothbrush and Oral irrigators together:
    1.Oral b(Electric toothbrush and Irrigator):
    2. Philips sonicare(Electric Toothbrush and Irrigator):
    3. Pursonic(Electric Toothbrush and Irrigator):
    4.Fairwill(Electric Toothbrush and Irrigator):
    5.Waterpik(Electric Toothbrush and Irrigator):

  4. Do results from in office whitening vs whitening strips the same? Or is it better to go in office whitening then use white strips for maintenance if I want the whitest shade I can get?

    I heard somewhere that whitening strips get the same level of whiteness with inoffice whitening but it takes longer.

    1. You can achieve the same results with whitening strips, it does just take longer and for some can feel like more hassle.

  5. How much does it cost to have teeth whitened? Also to maintain the white how much would that cost to get the top ups? And is there a cost to a consultation?
    Also can a 17 year old get there teeth whitened in the uk?

    1. You will need to be 18 to have your teeth whitened in the UK.
      Prices do vary around the country, depending on the location, the individual dentist and the whitening product used. As a general rule £250-400 is what it will cost initially and that normally includes a consultation.
      Top-up for the gels will be £20-50. You might want to top up every 12 months or so.

  6. Great video thank you! Is this damaging at all for the teeth/ will it make your teeth weaker in general? I’m just a bit worried it can be damaging Thank you

    1. As a general rule, no it won’t make your teeth weaker. Of course many, rightly so would argue the best thing for your teeth is to not whiten them, just keep them clean using non abrasive products etc. Avoid lots of whitening and completing the process more frequently than needed. Completed safely, periodically everything should be fine. Of course regular checkups help detect any possible issues early.
