Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of many patients, there are a number of methods to lighten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will lighten teeth significantly. 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 lightening so they will match the recently bleached teeth.
Most dentists use multiple approaches: customizeded tray bleaching, professional strength white strips, and in-office whitening.
The tray method involves having impressions taken, which the laboratory makes 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 whole process takes about a week of everyday use. 3 different strengths of gel might be utilized, however, the greater the strength, the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray approach is suggested for severely stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it might take multiple months of use to see substantial color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a extremely fast and convenient lightening process. The appointment is around one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our clients enjoy this treatment because it is so simple and fast!
Tooth whitening 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 maintenance of whitened teeth the trays ought to be utilized every few months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of external tooth layer.
- Florousis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
