What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a common cosmetic dentistry procedure for lightening teeth and removing stains and discoloration. It may take more than one application to whiten your teeth depending on the treatment technique.
What Causes Teeth Discoloration?
- Excessive plaque buildup
- Tooth injury
- Drinking coffee, tea, and red wine
- Poor oral hygiene
The Teeth Whitening Procedure
The dentist uses a stronger bleaching solution than at-home whitening kits to achieve professional teeth whitening for patients. It has a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide, which aids in tooth whitening. For the process, the patient is placed in a dental chair. The dentist supplies the patient with protective clothing, which helps to avoid whitening gel contact with the gums. Because the treatment is non-invasive and provides no discomfort to the patient, anesthesia is not necessary.
Then the whitening gel is applied to the teeth and left on for a few minutes. A unique light is shone on the teeth, which helps to strengthen the treatment and deliver faster results. To obtain the desired result, the whitening gel is reapplied to the teeth. Following the whitening procedure, the dentist gives the patient a shade card to examine the change in the color of the teeth. The treatment gives the patient an immediate response that is noticeable in less than an hour.
The Advantages of Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional-grade whitening products use stronger bleaching solutions than store-bought products and they produce far more effective results.
Custom-made whitening trays prevent medical-grade solutions from coming into touch with your gums, decreasing tooth sensitivity.
The entire teeth whitening operation will be supervised to ensure that it is done properly and provides the best results possible.
What Aftercare Will My Teeth Require Following Teeth Whitening?
- Brush your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste at night and at least twice a day.
- Consult your dentist regularly if they recommend it.
- Limit your consumption of staining meals and beverages.
- To avoid discoloration and stains, quit smoking.
