Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of a lot of clients, there are numerous methods to lighten teeth. The most popular technique is utilizing a home tooth lightening system that will lighten teeth dramatically. Because tooth whitening 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 recently bleached teeth.
Most dentists use a number of techniques: custom made tray bleaching, professional strength white strips, and in-office lightening.
The tray approach involves having impressions taken, which the laboratory makes 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 process takes about a week of daily use. 3 various strengths of gel might be used, however, the higher the strength, the higher the probability of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is suggested for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it might take a number of months of use to see substantial color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a really quick and practical lightening process. The visit is around one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our clients enjoy this treatment since it is so simple and quick!
Tooth whitening 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 utilized every couple of 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).
