Because having whiter teeth has now become the top aesthetic concern of the majority of clients, there are numerous ways to bleach teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth bleaching system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Because tooth bleaching 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 lightening so they will match the recently bleached teeth.
Most dentists utilize a number of techniques: custom made tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office whitening.
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 process takes about a week of daily use. 3 various strengths of gel might be utilized, however, the greater the strength, the higher the probability of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is advised for severely stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it might take a number of months of use to see significant color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a really quick and convenient whitening procedure. The appointment is roughly one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our patients enjoy this treatment because it is so easy and fast!
Tooth lightening 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 must be used every couple of 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).
