Teeth whitening or teeth bleaching is an easy way to get a bright smile.
Over the years, teeth can become discoloured due to ageing, illness, certain foods, smoking, poor oral hygiene, trauma or any combination of these factors.
Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the colour of natural teeth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home teeth whitening system that can whiten teeth dramatically.
We can also provide In-Chair whitening as an alternate option. Your dentists will discuss this with you at your appointment.
Since teeth whitening only works on natural teeth, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
Reasons for teeth whitening:
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during teeth development).
- Normal wear of outer teeth layer.
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.).
- Yellow, brown stained teeth.
What does teeth whitening involve?
This technique involves wearing a custom fitted appliance containing the teeth whitening solution.
You will receive care instructions for your whitening treatment, and be encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
