Teeth whitening are the most popular dental treatment that lightens the natural color of your teeth and helps to removes stains and discoloration.
People get their teeth whitened for several reasons. Just like different hair and skin color people also have different tooth colors. Some people have more yellow teeth than others, while other teeth turn yellow with aging. There are many reasons for whitening your teeth which includes:
A Teeth whitening is a simple process which contains one of two tooth bleaches such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These bleaches break your stains into further smaller pieces making the color less concentrated and teeth brighter.
Before beginning the teeth whitening our dentist Dr. Ankur Patel clean the teeth thoroughly, fill any cavities, and make sure the patient's teeth and gums are healthy. A grainy material called pumice is used to polish your teeth to remove any plaque on your surface. Later your mouth will be isolated with gauze to keep your teeth dry. A retractor is used to keep your lips and tongue away from the whitening solution.
Our dentist will coat your front part of the teeth with a whitening solution. The solution consists of 15 to 35 percent hydrogen peroxide gel. A high-intensity light is used to activate the solution and is left on the teeth for 30 to 60 minutes. Once the optimum shade (maximum time) has been reached, the teeth would be rinsed and a fluoride application is used to ease any tooth sensitivity.
Once the Teeth Whitening Treatment is completed, Our dentist advises avoiding foods or beverages such as coffee, tea, black grapes and red wine that contain a high level of pigment for at least 24 hours. An additional dental visit would be scheduled until you have reached the desired shade.
