Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most clients, there are numerous methods to whiten teeth. The most popular technique is using a home tooth whitening system that will bleach teeth significantly. Because tooth lightening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is very important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after whitening so they will match the freshly bleached teeth.
Most dentists use numerous methods: customizeded tray whitening, professional strength white strips, and in-office whitening.
The tray method involves having impressions taken, which the lab produces 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 entire procedure takes about a week of everyday use. 3 various strengths of gel may be utilized, however, the greater the strength, the higher the probability of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray technique is suggested for severely stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take a number of months of use to see substantial color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a very fast and hassle-free whitening process. The visit is approximately one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our patients love this treatment due to the fact that it is so easy and fast!
Tooth lightening 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 should 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, and so on).
