Teeth whitening or bleaching is a safe procedure that gives your teeth 2-5 shades brighter depending on your present dentition.
Teeth whitening is done to remove stains which is the reason for yellow teeth. There are two types of stains on the teeth:
Extrinsic stains– Stains that occur on the outside of the teeth are called extrinsic stains. Causes of extrinsic stains are drinking a lot of tea, coffee, cola, or red wine, smoking, inadequate brushing, etc.
These stains can often be corrected with teeth-whitening techniques in the office.
Intrinsic stains- Stains that occur within the tooth dentine are called intrinsic stains and are difficult to remove. These are caused due to certain diseases like fluorosis, poor dentition, certain medications like tetracycline, and medical treatments like chemotherapy.
These stains can be corrected with dental veneers.
We at Shubham Dental Clinic provide home bleaching as well as chairside options for patients who are interested in teeth whitening.
Home bleaching technique
Bleaching trays are customized by your dentist and then use bleaching gels in these trays at home at your comfortable time. The duration of the tray to be kept in the mouth depends on the strength of the bleaching gel used and your desired shade.
Chairside or office bleaching
If your teeth are discolored and you are conscious of your smile then you can come to us to get a brighter and whiter smile. Bleaching in the clinic takes about 40 minutes to one hour so we can say the results are immediate. There may be one or two sessions of teeth whitening according to the desired shade of the teeth.
Bleaching is one of the safest procedure in cosmetic dentistry but even then we don’t recommend it for children under 13 years of age and pregnant females.
Follow the instructions of post-care after teeth whitening to maintain the desired results. Bleaching does not make the teeth permanently white, so if anyone needs a permanent solution then dental veneers are the option.
