Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of many clients, there are numerous methods to lighten teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth lightening system that will bleach teeth considerably. Since tooth whitening only 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 newly bleached teeth.
Most dentists use multiple methods: custom made tray whitening, professional strength white strips, and in-office bleaching.
The tray technique involves having impressions taken, which the lab fabricates into custom-made 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 process takes about a week of daily use. 3 different strengths of gel might be used, however, the higher the strength, the higher the probability of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is suggested for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it might take numerous months of use to see substantial color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a extremely fast and convenient bleaching process. The visit is approximately one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our clients love this treatment because it is so easy and quick!
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 upkeep of whitened teeth the trays should be utilized 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, etc.).
