Teeth whitening or bleaching is a simple, safe, non-invasive way to change the colour of your natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Having whiter teeth can be simple to attain, and is the most conservative way to improve your smile. The most popular way is to use a home teeth-whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically for most people. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate your teeth prior to this treatment, to plan replacement of any old white fillings or crowns so that they match your newly whitened teeth.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up is often needed every year, and more often if you drink coffee, tea, or wine or if you smoke.
Reasons for teeth whitening:
• Naturally dark or yellow teeth
• Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
• Yellow, brown stained teeth that have discoloured over time
What does a take home teeth whitening system involve?
A take home whitening system requires two visits. Impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to make custom soft plastic trays. After the trays are fabricated, whitening gel solution is placed in the tray and worn either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight, depending on the whitening solution you choose. Depending on the degree of whitening results you would like to achieve, trays are worn for up to two weeks. It is normal to experience temporary tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth.
