Because having whiter teeth has now become the primary aesthetic concern of the majority of clients, there are multiple ways to bleach teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth bleaching system that will whiten teeth significantly. Because tooth lightening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is essential 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 numerous methods: customizeded tray whitening, professional strength white strips, and in-office whitening.
The tray approach involves having impressions taken, which the lab makes into custom 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 whole process takes about a week of everyday use. Three various strengths of gel might be utilized, however, the greater the strength, the greater the possibility of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray technique is suggested for badly 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 really quick and hassle-free bleaching procedure. The visit is roughly one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our patients like this treatment because it is so easy and quick!
Tooth lightening 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 need to be utilized every few months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
- Florousis (extreme fluoridation throughout tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
