Because having whiter teeth has now become the primary aesthetic concern of the majority of clients, there are a number of methods to lighten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth bleaching system that will bleach teeth dramatically. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after lightening so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Most dentists use numerous approaches: custom made tray bleaching, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.
The tray method involves having impressions taken, which the laboratory fabricates into custom-made vinyl trays. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 30 minutes to a full hour. The entire procedure takes about a week of daily use. Three various strengths of gel may be used, however, the greater the strength, the higher the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is advised for severely stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take multiple months of use to see substantial color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a very fast and hassle-free lightening procedure. The appointment is approximately one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our clients enjoy this treatment due to the fact that 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 couple of months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of external tooth layer.
- Florousis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
