Because having whiter teeth has now become the primary aesthetic concern of many patients, there are multiple methods to bleach teeth. The most popular technique is using a home tooth bleaching system that will whiten teeth considerably. Since tooth bleaching just works on natural tooth enamel, it is essential to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. 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 whitening, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.
The tray technique involves having impressions taken, which the lab fabricates 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 process takes about a week of day-to-day use. 3 various strengths of gel might be utilized, however, the greater the strength, the higher the probability of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray technique is recommended for terribly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take a number of months of use to see considerable color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a really quick and convenient whitening process. The visit is approximately one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our patients like 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 ought to be utilized 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.).
