Because having whiter teeth has now become the primary aesthetic concern of a lot of patients, there are a number of methods to bleach teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth bleaching system that will bleach teeth dramatically. Because tooth bleaching only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, and so on. Replacement of any restorations will be done after whitening so they will match the recently bleached teeth.
Most dentists use multiple techniques: custom made tray bleaching, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.
The tray approach involves having impressions taken, which the lab fabricates 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 entire procedure takes about a week of daily use. Three different strengths of gel may be used, however, the greater the strength, the higher the possibility of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is recommended for terribly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it might take numerous months of use to see considerable color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a extremely fast and practical lightening procedure. The visit is around one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our patients enjoy this treatment since it is so simple and fast!
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 upkeep of whitened teeth the trays need to be used every few months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of external tooth layer.
- Florousis (excessive fluoridation throughout tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, and so on).
