There are many ways to achieve a pretty smile, one of them is teeth whitening.
would you like to do it?
It ightens the teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look, and your smile definitely.
Do you know, the most common reasons for teeth to get yellow or stained are caused by tobacco (smoking), drinking dark-colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine. The aging also makes teeth less bright as the enamel gets thinner and the dentin becomes darker.
As a result, people embarrassed about their smile because they do not like the way their teeth appear to others.
Thankfully, teeth issues can be corrected, and a person does not have to commit themselves to a life of never smiling because they are uncomfortable with the appearance of their teeth.
Most dentists perform teeth whitening. It can be done in the dental office or at home. For in-office whitening, your dentist will photo your teeth and check your teeth shade first. This step by step process will help the dentist to monitor the progress of the treatment. Your dentist also will examine your teeth and ask you questions to find out what caused the staining.
The most common type of teeth whitening uses a gel that applied directly to the teeth surface.
This product contains some form of hydrogen peroxide. Tooth whitening can be done in the dentist’s office or at home. In-office whitening allows your dentist to use a more powerful whitening gel.
A specialized light or laser activates the gel and allows bleaching faster. In-office whitening usually takes 30 to 90 minutes. You will need 1 to 3 appointments. The number will depend upon the method used, how severe your stains are and how white you want your teeth to be. Different types of stains respond differently to the treatment.
You might be wondering, how is the procedure of teeth whitening?
First, your dentist will apply a substance that covers and protects the gums around the teeth. Then, the whitening agent will be placed on the teeth. Some whitening agents are activated by a laser light, special lights or by the heat from these lights.
After the whitening agent is applied, the dentist will shine the light on your teeth. If they are badly discolored, your dentist may suggest that you continue the bleaching process at home for a few days or weeks.
There are some myths and facts about teeth whitening:
1. Your teeth are like sponges…they absorb.
Your teeth have pores just like your skin or a sponge. Anything you put in your mouth that has color will absorb into those pores. Wine, coffee, dark berries, and smoking are extremely active in staining teeth. Over time, the natural color of your teeth becomes darker due to these stains. These stains will never go away unless you actively remove them. Properly formulated teeth whitening gel works by absorbing into your teeth and gently pushing stains out through the pores.
2. Teeth whitening does not damage your teeth.
Just like aggressive brushing of your teeth, abuse of any kind can be damaging. However, if used as instructed, professional teeth whitening is incredibly safe. The whitening process uses active ingredients to temporarily open pores in your teeth and lift stains. After each whitening session, your teeth naturally remineralize and rehydrate.
3. Sensitivity after teeth whitening is normal.
More than 60% of Americans have naturally sensitive teeth. This is most often caused by genetics, thin enamel, or crack/damaged teeth. During the whitening process, it is completely normal for sensitivity to occur. The teeth become temporarily dehydrated which reduces their ability to insulate the nerve from changes in temperature. Sensitivity will disappear 12-36 hours after whitening. Dentists and hygienists recommend a post-whitening fluoride treatment to nourish the teeth and promote rehydration.
4. Stains on teeth cannot be removed overnight.
No product on the market can whiten in a few minutes or a day. Chemically, it is impossible for any whitening agent to safely penetrate deep enough into the teeth at that speed. If this were possible, dentists would not be paid well to create custom-fitted whitening trays. The truth is that the whitening process can take as few as 4 days and up to several months. Customers with severe stains must be patient with the process and know that each whitening session removes years of stains. Once those stains are gone, it is incredibly easy to maintain.
5. Not everyone’s teeth can be perfectly white
Regardless of your stains, the natural color (and genetic makeup) of an individual’s teeth are set at birth. The only thing a whitening product can do is remove all the stains that have accumulated over time.
