Stained teeth are a common concern, especially among individuals who chew tobacco, smoke cigarettes, consume alcohol heavily, or simply do not pay enough attention to their oral hygiene. Although enamel is the strongest material in the body, it has pores on its surface. Staining particles can get deposited in these pores and make your smile appear dull and discolored.
What is the Solution?
Brushing our teeth regularly helps to remove the stains to a small extent. However, it wouldn’t produce a noticeable effect on the aesthetics of your smile. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental service that helps to remove the stains from your teeth, giving you a sparkling white smile. It is quick, effective, simple, and produces long-lasting effects.
What are the Various Teeth Whitening Procedures?
Conventional Whitening: Traditional teeth whitening is carried out at a dental practice under the guidance of a well-trained dentist. Our team of experts will clean the teeth thoroughly and will check the presence of cavities, teeth restorations, receding gum lines, and other concerns. A rubber dam will be placed on the teeth to cover the gum tissues. The dentist will apply the whitening gel on the teeth and spread it uniformly on them. After a few minutes, the gel will be removed, and the teeth will be cleaned. The whitening process can be repeated multiple times if you wish to get a higher level of whitening or if your teeth are severely discolored.
Take-home whitening kits: Whitening kits would comprise a custom-fabricated plastic tray that would fit perfectly over your teeth. You can take the kit home and whiten your teeth at home as and when you desire. Before starting the procedure, you have to clean your teeth thoroughly by brushing and flossing. A small amount of whitening gel should be squeezed into the plastic trays and spread evenly. The trays can be placed on the teeth and allowed to stay for a few minutes before you take them off and rinse your mouth. The procedure can be repeated as per the dentist’s instructions.
Laser Teeth Whitening: Laser activated teeth whitening is a highly efficient and sought-after means of bleaching the teeth. The gel used for this purpose is photosensitive - which will be activated using a high-intensity laser. Once activated, it produces foam filled with oxygen molecules that penetrate the porous surface of the enamel and bleach the coloring particles. The procedure is extremely quick, and the results last for a considerably longer duration.
