Because having whiter teeth has now become the primary aesthetic concern of many patients, there are numerous methods to bleach teeth. The most popular technique is using a home tooth lightening system that will bleach teeth dramatically. Because tooth lightening 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 lightening so they will match the freshly bleached teeth.
Most dentists use numerous approaches: custom made tray bleaching, professional strength white strips, and in-office bleaching.
The tray approach involves having impressions taken, which the lab makes into customized 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 whole procedure takes about a week of everyday use. Three various strengths of gel might be used, however, the higher the strength, the greater the possibility of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is suggested for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it might take multiple months of use to see substantial color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a very fast and hassle-free whitening procedure. The appointment is around one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our patients enjoy this treatment since it is so simple and quick!
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 upkeep of whitened teeth the trays should be used every couple of 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, etc.).
