Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of many clients, there are a number of methods to lighten teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth bleaching system that will bleach teeth dramatically. Since tooth lightening just works on natural tooth enamel, it is important 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 approaches: custom made tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.
The tray approach involves having impressions taken, which the laboratory 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 whole process takes about a week of daily use. 3 different strengths of gel might be used, however, the greater the strength, the higher the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray technique is suggested for terribly 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 convenient lightening procedure. The visit is roughly one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our clients enjoy this treatment since it is so easy and fast!
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 upkeep of whitened teeth the trays ought to be used every few 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, and so on).
