For everyone, how their teeth look is really important. Teeth that are particularly discolored or stained discourage smiling with confidence. However, one of the treatment options available today, “Teeth Whitening,” can help restore the original whiteness of teeth.
What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is the procedure of restoring teeth to their original whiteness after they have lost their natural color for a variety of reasons. In comparison to veneers made of porcelain or other materials, it is healthier and more protective. Based on the structure of the teeth, this procedure lightens the color of the teeth by 7-8 tones.
The technique to be utilized should be chosen based on the structure and health of the teeth.
1-What is In-office Whitening?
This technique—also known as laser teeth whitening—is one of the more effective ones.
Prior to using a laser or UV light to whiten the teeth, whitening gel is first administered to the teeth. After this one-hour procedure, teeth become four times lighter than they were before. The dentist determines whether or not a second appointment is necessary.
The dentist is in charge of overseeing each of these operations. All safety measures are implemented before the procedure because it is a delicate application.
2-What is At-home Whitening?
A dental plate is made using the patient’s jaw and teeth measurements. The patient is instructed to put the whitening gel on this plate for about 4-5 hours every day.
This procedure takes between 10 and 15 days.
Patients should completely adhere to the dentist’s directions. The amount of gel in the plate and how well you clean the plate must both be taken into consideration.
Throughout this process, the patient should stay in constant communication with the dentist.
3-What is Combined Teeth Whitening?
It is a combination of at-home and in-office whitening techniques. The teeth are first treated with laser whitening in a clinic. Then, a 2-4 day at-home whitening procedure is performed.
4-What is Internal Teeth Whitening?
Internal discolouration could be seen in some tooth structures. To fix this discolouration issue, the “Devital Bleaching” technique is used. The application of this technology is justified because other teeth-whitening techniques fall short in this case.
It is important that this procedure, which is not harmful for health, is applied by a specialist dentist.
Is Teeth Whitening a safe procedure?
Studies have shown that when teeth whitening is done under a dentist’s supervision, there are no unfavorable side effects that pose a health hazard. Pre- and post-procedure special applications are carried out by the specialized dentist. The outcomes will be favorable.
It can be dangerous to attempt these operations without the dentist’s supervision.
How long do the effects of Teeth Whitening last?
Depending on how well the patient takes care of their oral and dental health, the lifespan of the whitening procedure varies. Tea, coffee, colorful foods, and tobacco products should be avoided during this time because teeth will be quite sensitive following the whitening procedure for a while. A person can maintain white teeth for two to three years if they take good care of their teeth. Also, this treatment can be repeated.
What causes staining on teeth?
- Depending on the food that has been consumed, color changes may occur on frontal teeth.
- Drugs that have been used at young ages or some antibiotics which are used by the mother during pregnancy can cause color changing in the teeth.
- As teeth structure changes in older ages, undesired discoloration can be apparent.
- Root canal operations can cause color changing in the teeth from inside to outside.
