Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of a lot of patients, there are a number of ways to bleach teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth bleaching system that will lighten teeth significantly. Since tooth whitening 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 whitening so they will match the freshly bleached teeth.
Most dentists use numerous approaches: customizeded tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.
The tray technique involves having impressions taken, which the lab makes 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 day-to-day use. Three various strengths of gel may be used, however, the greater the strength, the higher the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is suggested for severely stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it might take multiple months of use to see considerable color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a really fast and practical lightening procedure. The visit is around one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our patients like this treatment because it is so simple and fast!
Tooth whitening 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 upkeep of whitened teeth the trays must be utilized every few months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
- Florousis (extreme fluoridation throughout tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, and so on).
