Teeth Whitening

There are many causes of tooth discoloration. The most common include genetics, aging, consumption of staining substances (smoking, coffee, tea, and colas), tetracycline (antibiotic) staining, excessive fluoride, and old fillings. Whitening toothpaste can remove stain that is on the outside of the teeth. Dentists call this extrinsic staining. However, whitening toothpaste and professional dental cleanings will not change the color or intrinsic staining of the teeth. That is why tooth whitening (sometimes called tooth bleaching) is so popular.

How is teeth whitening done?

Its done by a dentist who applies a 35% Hydrogen Peroxide solution on your teeth. Once this solution is on, a light is held a couple of inches away from your teeth to speed up the chemical reaction of the Hydrogen Peroxide.

How long will the bleaching effect last??

For most people, the treatment is long-lasting. Exposure to coffee, smoking, red wines, and some medicine products will gradually darken teeth again over time. After an initial treatment, most people do touch-ups one day about every 3-6 months.

Side Effects of Bleaching:

  • Chances of teeth sensitivity are there but its reversible after sometime. Nowadays postoperative sensitivity is very less when its used along with fluoride gels and mouthwashes before and after the treatment.
  • Gum irritation occurs atimes when it is used carelessly, it should not come in contact with the gums and tongue while bleaching, hence home bleaching (self bleaching) is not advisable.
