Because having whiter teeth has now become the top aesthetic concern of a lot of clients, there are multiple methods to lighten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth bleaching system that will lighten teeth significantly. Because tooth lightening just works on natural tooth enamel, it is 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 utilize a number of techniques: custom made tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office bleaching.
The tray method involves having impressions taken, which the lab produces 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 entire process takes about a week of daily use. 3 different strengths of gel may be utilized, however, the greater the strength, the greater the probability of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray technique is recommended for terribly 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 really quick and convenient bleaching procedure. The visit is approximately one hour including both the preparation and treatment. Our clients like 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 upkeep of whitened teeth the trays should be utilized every few months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer.
- Florousis (extreme fluoridation throughout tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
