Nowadays, dentists' jobs are not limited to dental surgery. From teeth straightening to teeth whitening, they do it all, to help people boost their confidence. One of the most in-demand cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening or teeth bleaching. Certain advanced treatments give you long-lasting results.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures as it is inexpensive, effective, and shows fast results. Most people choose this to improve their appearance and get back their confidence.
It is a process of removing stains on your teeth and restoring the natural color of your teeth. The treatment involves teeth brightening with the help of bleach. It is useful for those with stained and discolored teeth. So, it is a convenient option for smokers and those who consume more coffee or alcohol.
Sometimes the enamel of your teeth that reflects the natural color of your tooth can stain or the dentin which forms the inner surface of the teeth can stain. There are several reasons for tooth discoloration — most of them can be prevented, but some can’t be controlled.
Causes of stain and tooth discoloration include:
With the help of teeth whitening, you can remove all the stains from your teeth and can make them look whiter.
At first, the dentist will photograph your teeth and examine the stain on them. The procedure begins by cleaning your teeth and removing the coating on your enamel caused by food or other substances. Then the whitening process begins and can take from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the intensity of the stain on your teeth.
Provided done under professional guidance, teeth whitening treatments are safe. But you must follow your dentist’s instructions. Overuse of the whitening gel can result in sensitivity, gum irritation, and enamel damage.
