What You Need To Know About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a very simple process. Whitening products contain one of two teeth bleaches (hydrogen peroxide or peroxide or carbamide). Such bleaches split the stains into smaller pieces, making the pigment less visible and the teeth cleaner.

Is Teeth Whitening Suitable For Everyone?

No, which is why it's important to talk to your dentist before you decide to whiten your teeth, as whiteners may not remove all forms of discoloration. For example, yellow teeth may bleach well, brown teeth may not respond well, and gray teeth may not bleach at all. Whitening does not work on caps, veneers, crowns or fillings. This will also not be successful if your tooth discoloration is caused by medicine or tooth injury. Many people who use teeth whiteners may have tooth sensitivity. It occurs when the peroxide in the whitener enters the soft layer of dentin through the enamel and irritates the nerve of your tooth. Sensitivity is temporary in most situations. You can postpone treatment and then try again. Overuse of whiteners can also damage your tooth enamel or gums, so be sure to follow the instructions and speak to your dentist.

Why Should You Whiten Your Teeth?

There are a number of reasons why you might have to whiten your teeth. Everyone is different; and just as the color of our hair and skin differs, so are our teeth. Very few people have brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also get more discolored as we get older. You can also stain your teeth on the surface with food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, and blackcurrant. Smoking can also stain your teeth. Calculus' or tartar may also influence the color of your teeth. Many people may have staining beneath the surface, which may be caused by certain drugs or small cracks in the teeth that take up stains.

What Does The Whitening Process Involve?

Professional whitening is the most common method of whitening teeth. The dental team will be able to inform you if you are eligible for treatment and will be able to monitor you if you are. The dental staff will first put a rubber pad or a gel on your gums to cover them. You will then apply the whitening substance to your teeth, using a specially crafted tray that fits into your mouth like a mouthguard. The' active ingredient' of the drug is normally hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As the active ingredient is broken down, the teeth are lined with oxygen in the enamel and the tooth color is lighter. Total care will typically be completed within three to four weeks. You'll need two to three visits to the dentist first. Your dental staff will need to make a mouthguard and make an impression on you at your first appointment.

After your dental team has started treatment, you will need to begin your care at home. It ensures that the whitening substance is routinely distributed over two to four weeks, 30 minutes to one hour at a time. There are, however, several new products that can be used for up to eight hours at a time. It ensures that you can get a satisfactory result in as little as a week.
