Teeth Whitening

Teeth’s whitening includes the practice of making the shades of your teeth lighter and brighter. Whitening is often looked for when your teeth become yellowed in due course of time because of various reasons and can be whitened by changing the basic core color of the tooth’s enamel.

The most noticeable feature of our face is the teeth. They, of course, play an important role when it comes to eating and communicating with others. Our smile can be an appealing feature, but if you suffer from stained or discolored teeth, you may lack confidence in showing your smile. On the contrary, you may also feel embarrassed by their appearance, and as a consequence, you may become less social to avoid being judged. Teeth whitening is not just a cosmetic procedure; it can also improve oral health, just like other dental procedures.

How does the Teeth Whitening Treatment work?

The professional teeth whitening system combines gels that are mixed to help accelerate the whitening process. They competently deliver the best results possible for you if you suffer from significant discoloration levels. This type of concentrated treatment is not for at-home use, and there are no products available in the market that can be compared with what is used professionally.

The process for teeth whitening begins by capturing your dental impressions. These impressions will then be made use of to create customized trays that will be utilized during your teeth whitening procedure. These personalized trays allow for the best possible results. Depending on how much whitening treatment is wanted, you may wear these whitening trays with the whitening gel. The trays can be worn for 15-20 minutes at a stretch and can be repeated several times till the desired results are achieved. 

If you have porcelain crowns, it might be necessary to replace them if the newly whitened teeth no longer match the crown. All these factors have to be discussed before commencing any treatment. It is always vital that you have all the information you need to make informed oral health decisions. 

What are the two types of Teeth Whitening?

  • In-Office Bleaching: In this type of whitening treatment, the bleach used is comparatively more powerful than those used for at-home treatments. Their results are quick and also cause lessened teeth sensitivity. In-Office bleaching not only removes the teeth stains but also whitens and brightens them. This procedure is also known as Chairside bleaching and can be finished in just one dental visit.
  • At-Home Bleaching: In this type of whitening procedure, the dentist provides you with a custom-made tray for at-home whitening. It gives an excellent alternative for people who want their teeth whitened in their home comforts. This method requires an appointment with the dentist to create customized trays for use at home. A low-intensity level gel is given to be kept in the trays and worn for 15-30 minutes at a stretch. The results from this treatment can take a few weeks to reflect.
