Because having whiter teeth has now become the top aesthetic concern of many patients, there are multiple methods to whiten teeth. The most popular technique is using a home tooth bleaching system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Because tooth whitening only 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 lightening so they will match the freshly bleached teeth.
Most dentists utilize a number of techniques: custom made tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office bleaching.
The tray technique involves having impressions taken, which the laboratory produces into custom-made 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 entire procedure takes about a week of day-to-day use. Three various strengths of gel might be used, however, the greater the strength, the higher the probability of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is advised for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take a number of months of use to see significant color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a very fast and practical bleaching process. The visit is around one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our patients like this treatment since it is so simple and fast!
Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may 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 must be utilized every couple of 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.).
