Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of a lot of clients, there are a number of ways to bleach teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth bleaching system that will bleach teeth considerably. Because tooth bleaching just works on natural tooth enamel, it is necessary to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after lightening so they will match the freshly bleached teeth.
Most dentists utilize a number of methods: customizeded tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office bleaching.
The tray technique involves having impressions taken, which the lab makes into customized 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 process takes about a week of everyday use. 3 various strengths of gel may be used, however, the higher the strength, the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray technique is recommended for terribly 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 practical bleaching process. The visit is roughly one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our patients love this treatment because it is so easy and quick!
Tooth bleaching is not permanent. A touch-up might be required once a year and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea, or wine. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays must be utilized every couple of months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of external tooth layer.
- Florousis (extreme fluoridation throughout tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
