Because having whiter teeth has now become the primary aesthetic concern of many patients, there are multiple methods to whiten teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth lightening system that will bleach teeth dramatically. Since tooth whitening just 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 bleaching so they will match the freshly bleached teeth.
Most dentists use numerous methods: customizeded tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office whitening.
The tray technique involves having impressions taken, which the lab fabricates 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 process takes about a week of everyday use. 3 different strengths of gel might be used, however, the greater the strength, the higher the possibility of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray technique is advised for severely stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take multiple months of use to see significant color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a extremely fast and convenient lightening process. The visit is roughly one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our clients love this treatment because it is so easy and fast!
Tooth bleaching 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 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.).
