What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening is a simple bleaching process to remove your teeth' stains and make it few shades brighter as preferred. Always consult a dentist deciding on teeth whitening options. 

Some of the teeth whitening methods are as follows:

  • Mild stains can be removed using stain removal toothpaste. 
  • During the at-home bleaching method, the dentist will provide a custom tray in which whitening gel can be placed to be applied at home. This is for those who want to do whitening in the comfort of home at a slower pace but still under a professional's guidance.
  • In-Office bleaching is the most recommended option as it requires only one visit to the dentist and is completely done by professionals with the best results in lesser time.
  • In DIY bleaching, one buys whitening products from online or local stores and applies them at own risk. Usually, the bleaching agent in such products is less. Always look for an ADA seal on such a product. It is best to consult a doctor before experimenting on your own.

Teeth Whitening Procedure at a Dentistry 

Consult your dentist to ensure you are a good candidate for whitening, as teeth whitening won't be effective on brown or grey-colored teeth. Also, it won't make dental restorations like crowns whiten, which can result in different colored teeth in your mouth.

During the process, the dentist will insert a lip retractor into your mouth, protect the gums and tongue from the bleaching chemicals and apply the gel to the teeth hardening it using high-powered light. Also, a compound called potassium nitrate is applied to the tooth to prevent tooth sensitivity.

After that, a gel containing 15% to 35% hydrogen peroxide is applied. It can penetrate and break apart the stain compounds. A high-powered light is used to speed up the process. Depending on the number of shades of whitening needed, multiple applications and the removal of the gel are made.
