Because having whiter teeth has now become the top aesthetic concern of many patients, there are a number of ways to lighten teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth bleaching system that will whiten teeth significantly. Because tooth whitening just works on natural tooth enamel, it is essential 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 newly bleached teeth.
Most dentists use a number of methods: customizeded tray whitening, professional strength white strips, and in-office bleaching.
The tray approach 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 entire procedure takes about a week of everyday use. Three different strengths of gel might be utilized, however, the greater the strength, the higher the probability of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is recommended for badly 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 extremely fast and hassle-free bleaching procedure. The visit is roughly one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our patients like this treatment since it is so simple and fast!
Tooth lightening is not permanent. A touch-up may be required once a year and more often if you smoke and/or drink coffee, tea, or wine. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays need to be utilized every few months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
- Florousis (excessive fluoridation throughout tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, and so on).
