Because having whiter teeth has now become the primary aesthetic concern of many patients, there are numerous methods to lighten teeth. The most popular technique is using a home tooth bleaching system that will whiten teeth considerably. Because tooth lightening just works on natural tooth enamel, it is necessary to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, and so on. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Most dentists use numerous methods: custom made tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.
The tray approach involves having impressions taken, which the lab makes into custom vinyl trays. A carbamide peroxide gel is put in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 30 minutes to a full hour. The whole process takes about a week of everyday use. 3 different strengths of gel may be utilized, however, the greater the strength, the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray technique is suggested for severely stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take numerous months of use to see significant color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a extremely quick and practical whitening procedure. The visit is approximately one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our clients love this treatment since it is so easy and fast!
Tooth bleaching is not permanent. A touch-up might be needed once a year and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea, or wine. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays ought to be used every few months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
- Florousis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
