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:
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.
