Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of a lot of clients, there are a number of methods to whiten teeth. The most popular technique is utilizing a home tooth whitening system that will bleach teeth significantly. Because tooth bleaching only 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 whitening so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Most dentists utilize a number of techniques: custom made tray whitening, professional strength white strips, and in-office whitening.
The tray method involves having impressions taken, which the lab produces 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 procedure takes about a week of daily use. 3 various strengths of gel might be used, however, the higher the strength, the greater the probability of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is recommended for severely stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it might take multiple months of use to see significant color improvement.
Our in-office treatment is a extremely fast and practical whitening procedure. The visit is around one hour consisting of both the preparation and treatment. Our patients enjoy this treatment due to the fact that it is so simple 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 few months.
Reasons For Tooth Whitening:
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
- Normal wear of external tooth layer.
- Florousis (excessive fluoridation throughout tooth development).
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
