Because having whiter teeth has now become the top aesthetic concern of the majority of clients, there are a number of ways to lighten teeth. The most popular technique is utilizing a home tooth bleaching system that will bleach teeth significantly. Since tooth bleaching just works on natural tooth enamel, it is very important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after lightening so they will match the freshly bleached teeth.
Most dentists use multiple methods: customizeded tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.
The tray method involves having impressions taken, which the lab produces into custom 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 procedure takes about a week of day-to-day use. 3 different strengths of gel might be used, however, the greater the strength, the greater the possibility of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is suggested for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take a number of months of use to see substantial color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a really fast and practical lightening procedure. The visit is approximately one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our patients enjoy this treatment because it is so simple and fast!
Tooth bleaching is not permanent. A touch-up might 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 used every couple of months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
- Florousis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
