How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Teeth whitening is a process whereby surface and internal discolorations are taken off your teeth. Elimination of the surface stains begins with having your teeth thoroughly cleaned and also polished at the dental office. Then peroxide gels are usually applied to your teeth inside the office or at your home using special trays that we make for you. The actual gel moves through the tooth surface and into the internal layers of your teeth expelling oxygen which removes the unsightly stains.
Brown, orange and yellow hued discolorations usually are most effectively lightened, particularly if they have developed with time. Gray and blue hued discolorations are generally much more challenging to remove as is considerable tetracycline discoloration. Tetracycline is really an antibiotic that, whenever given to small children while their permanent teeth are developing, will result in discoloration of those teeth throughout adult life. We provide a number of options in teeth lightening, which are fast, non-invasive approaches sure to improve your self-esteem and confidence, and provide you a wonderful smile. After discussing your goals and expectations, the dentist can propose the whitening approach which is suitable for your teeth, your schedule along with your finances.
It is necessary for you to keep in mind that whitening agents only affect actual tooth structure (enamel root surface and the hidden layer referred to as dentin). Any sort of restorative substances (fillings, veneers or crowns) you may have in or on your teeth aren’t going to be lightened. This means that after your bleaching is completed any restorations not matching with your new whiter smile will have to get replaced.
Many over-the-counter teeth whitening products are obtainable at the local retailer. But, only a dentist can provide you with a prescription-grade whitening product providing you with reliable, comfortable and sustainable results. Present-day research shows that at-home tray teeth whitening is the most effective mode of whitening and is easier on the wallet than light-activated whitening which demonstrates short-term teeth whitening due mainly to temporary dehydration of tooth structure.
