Do you often feel conscious about the color of your teeth when you socialize with people? Teeth discoloration is quite a common concern among individuals of all ages. It is often caused due to factors such as improper oral hygiene, consumption of colored foods, chewing tobacco, excessive alcohol consumption, etc. To everyone’s relief, teeth discoloration can be treated easily with the help of whitening solutions.
In-office teeth whitening
Many over-the-counter teeth whitening products are available in the market, which you can buy from your local drug store. But, they are not as effective as professional teeth whitening and often have adverse effects on the mouth’s tissues. Hence, we suggest getting in-office teeth whitening as opposed to doing it by yourself at home. We will conduct a thorough visual examination and determine your candidacy for the procedure. Some of the factors that we consider are the presence of dental restorations on the teeth, cavities, gum receding, severity of staining, etc.
The dentist will clean the teeth and remove the tartar deposits from their surface. We will place a rubber dam on the teeth to cover the gums, as the whitening gel may cause adverse reactions if it comes in contact with the soft tissues. The gel will be applied and spread evenly on the teeth, which will be allowed to stay for a few minutes. It will then be rinsed off, and the procedure may be repeated multiple times depending on the severity of the discoloration.
Take-home whitening kits
We provide customized teeth whitening kits that you can take home and use it at your comfort. Initially, we will take precise digital impressions to fabricate the whitening trays. They will be made from dental-grade plastic and fabricated to fit perfectly on the teeth. You can squeeze a small amount of the prescribed whitening gel into the trays and place them on your teeth after cleaning them thoroughly. The trays keep the saliva off the teeth, thereby increasing the effectiveness of the procedure. You may repeat it multiple times to get a superior shade of whitening.
Laser teeth whitening is a quick, effective, and a highly-preferred whitening option. It uses a laser of the right intensity to activate the gel, which produces a foam filled with oxygen molecules. These molecules enter the porous structure of the enamel and bleach the coloring particles, leaving behind whiter teeth that are unaltered in structure. Patients who have a busy schedule or do not wish to spend long hours in the dental chair can significantly benefit from it.
