Because having whiter teeth has now become the top aesthetic concern of many patients, there are a number of methods to lighten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth bleaching system that will lighten teeth considerably. Since tooth whitening just works on natural tooth enamel, it is important 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 recently bleached teeth.
Most dentists use a number of techniques: custom made tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office whitening.
The tray method involves having impressions taken, which the lab fabricates into customized 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 whole process takes about a week of everyday use. Three different strengths of gel may be utilized, however, the higher the strength, the greater the possibility of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is recommended 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 very quick and convenient bleaching procedure. The visit is roughly one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our clients like this treatment due to the fact that it is so simple and fast!
Tooth lightening is not permanent. A touch-up might 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 must be used every few months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of external tooth layer.
- Florousis (extreme fluoridation during tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, and so on).
