Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental service that helps your teeth appear whiter and brighter. It involves the use of a whitening agent to remove stains from the surface of the teeth. Teeth whitening is a safe, efficient, and cost-effective procedure that can be used to treat discolored or stained teeth.

What Causes Teeth Stains or Discoloration?

There may be several reasons why someone may have stained or discolored teeth. Some of them are as follows:

  • Staining of the teeth can occur due to the consumption of colored foods, tea, coffee, and wine. The bacteria present in the mouth can also cause this issue.
  • Frequent smoking and chewing tobacco can also cause staining of the teeth. 
  • Stains and discoloration of the teeth can also occur due to aging. 

What Are the Different Types of Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is available either in-office or for at-home use. 

In-Office Teeth Whitening
This type of whitening procedure is performed in the dental office. An in-office whitening session usually lasts for about an hour. The patient is provided with a protective shield and a light sedative to reduce any discomfort during the procedure. The dentist applies the whitening gel on the tooth surface, leaves it on for about 15 minutes, and then rinses it off with water. The process is repeated until the desired shade is achieved. 

At-Home Teeth Whitening 
For this type of treatment, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth so that customized trays can be made for you to wear at home. You should wear these trays twice daily for 15 minutes each time for one week. Your teeth will become whiter and shinier within two weeks or so. 

What Are the Benefits of In-Office Teeth Whitening?

The benefits of in-office teeth whitening are as follows:

  • Teeth whitening can make your smile look more dazzling and beautiful. It also helps you feel more confident about yourself. 
  • Teeth whitening has no side effects when carried out by an experienced dentist who uses safe and effective products. 
  • In-office teeth whitening works fast and is most effective in eliminating stains caused by smoking and tea or coffee consumption.
