Have your teeth whitened at the dentist

If you’re thinking about having your teeth whitened, we advise you to contact us to make an appointment with a dentist. You can visit our dental practice in Amsterdam Nieuw-West for both internal and external whitening procedures to treat discolourations and improve your teeth. Below, you can read the differences between internal and external bleaching.

Internal bleaching

Internal teeth whitening is a dental procedure in which a discoloured tooth is bleached from the inside to restore its original colour. This procedure is usually performed on teeth that are discoloured due to trauma, root canal treatments, tooth decay, or overuse of certain medications.

During internal teeth whitening, an opening is made in the tooth to access the dentin. A bleaching agent is then applied to the tooth, which acts on the discolouration and whitens it from the inside. Finally, the tooth is closed with a filling.

Your own dentist can carry out internal teeth whitening, which is an effective way to treat discolourations from within and improve your teeth. However, it is important to remember that this procedure is not suitable for everyone. Our dentists will advise you whether it is necessary to whiten your teeth internally or whether external bleaching is sufficient in your case.

External bleaching

When you think about whitening your teeth, you probably think about external whitening. This dental procedure involves applying a whitening agent to the outer layer of your teeth to remove discolourations and stains, thereby whitening your teeth. This procedure is usually performed when your teeth are discoloured due to ageing, foods, drinks, tobacco, or other environmental factors.

At home bleaching

We always recommend home whitening if you want to have your teeth whitened externally. The advantage of home teeth whitening under the supervision of your dentist is that the process is tailored to your individual needs and that your dentist can advise you on the right whitening gel and amount of gel for your teeth. Your dentist will also monitor your treatment progress and assess any side effects or discomfort you experience.

Even though the external whitening of your teeth will take place at home, you will, of course, be under the supervision of your own dentist. We always book two appointments with you in advance. During the first appointment, your dentist will take upper and lower jaw impressions. A dental technician then makes so-called whitening mouthguards from this. You can pick up the custom-made whitening tray and gel during your second appointment. You will, of course, receive extensive information and advice about the use of the whitening mouthpiece and the whitening gel during this appointment.

You can then start the whitening procedure yourself at home. You fill the whitening tray with the whitening gel in the evening and place it on your teeth overnight. This way, the bleach is evenly distributed over your teeth, and you will not have any problems with the mouthguard during the day.

Frequently asked questions about teeth whitening

Is teeth bleaching painful?

Teeth whitening is not painful. You may experience some sensitivity after bleaching, but this usually disappears within a few days. It’s really important to consult with a qualified dentist before you begin with bleaching of your teeth. This is to ensure that you choose the best treatment option for your specific situation and to prevent any complications.

Is teeth bleaching safe?

If you have your teeth whitened under the supervision of your dentist, it is completely safe to have your teeth whitened. However, we do not recommend whitening your teeth if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or undergoing fertility treatment.

How long will my teeth stay nice and white after whitening?

How long your teeth remain beautifully white after whitening depends on various factors. This includes your eating and drinking habits, oral hygiene, age and the cause of the discolouration of your teeth.


If, after teeth whitening, you regularly consume foods and drinks known to cause discolouration, such as coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco, your teeth will discolour more quickly than if you avoid these foods as much as possible.


So, if you pay attention to your eating and drinking habits and maintain good oral hygiene, your teeth can remain beautifully white for about 2 to 3 years after whitening. To keep your teeth white for as long as possible, you can do the following:


  • Avoid/limit foods and drinks known to cause discolouration.
  • Brush your teeth twice daily and floss regularly to remove plaque and prevent tartar buildup.
  • Visit us twice yearly for a periodic checkup at our dental practice in Amsterdam Nieuw-West so that we can check the health of your teeth and deal with any discolouration in a timely manner.

Is teeth whitening suitable for everyone?

No. We don’t carry out teeth bleaching or whitening treatments on people younger than 18 years old. In addition, we do not recommend whitening your teeth if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or undergoing fertility treatment.

How often may I have my teeth bleached at your practice in Amsterdam Nieuw-West?

Whitening your teeth is not harmful and can, therefore, certainly be repeated. How often you must repeat the treatment to maintain desired results depends on your eating and drinking behaviour. We recommend repeating the whitening treatment every 2 to 3 years.

Will my crowns and fillings also be bleached during a whitening treatment?

No. Crowns, fillings and other dental restorations are not bleached during a whitening treatment. The bleach has no effect on these materials, so the result of a bleaching treatment can lead to colour differences in your mouth. It is important to inform your dentist about any crowns, fillings or other restorations before undergoing whitening treatment so that your dentist can advise you on the most appropriate treatment based on your specific situation.


If you have crowns, fillings or other dental restorations that do not match the desired colour of your teeth, your dentist can advise you on the options for replacing or adjusting them so that they better match your whitened teeth.

How can I prepare for a whitening treatment?

Some tips to prepare for a whitening treatment include:


  • Speak with your dentist about your wishes and expectations with regard to the bleaching of your teeth. Your dentist can advise you on the most appropriate treatment based on your specific situation.
  • Undergo a thorough dental cleaning to remove any plaque and tartar. This allows the bleach to penetrate better, resulting in better results.
  • Avoid food and drinks that can cause discolouration, such as coffee, tea, red wine and soft drinks. It is also advisable to avoid tobacco products as they can contribute to discolouration of your teeth.
  • Purchase products for sensitive teeth.
  • Follow your dentist’s instructions as best as possible, which will be given before and after the treatment.
