Because having whiter teeth has now become the top aesthetic concern of the majority of patients, there are multiple ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is utilizing a home tooth bleaching system that will bleach teeth dramatically. Since 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 whitening so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Most dentists utilize multiple approaches: customizeded tray lightening, professional strength white strips, and in-office bleaching.
The tray method involves having impressions taken, which the lab fabricates 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 whole process takes about a week of day-to-day use. 3 various strengths of gel might be used, however, the higher the strength, the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is advised for severely stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take multiple months of use to see substantial color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a very fast and hassle-free whitening procedure. The visit is around one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our patients love this treatment because it is so easy and fast!
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 upkeep 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).
