WHAT ARE THE DETAILS OF TEETH WHITENING?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that removes stains and discoloration from the teeth to create a brighter, more attractive smile. Here are some details about teeth whitening:
- Types of Teeth Whitening: Two types of teeth whitening treatments are available, including in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening.
- In-office Teeth Whitening: In-office teeth whitening is a fast and effective treatment that typically takes about one hour. A high-concentration bleaching gel is applied to the teeth and activated with a special light during the procedure. This helps to remove stains and discoloration from the teeth quickly and effectively.
- Take-home Teeth Whitening: Take-home teeth whitening involves using custom-made trays and a professional-grade whitening gel that you can apply to your teeth at home. You will need to wear the trays for a specified amount of time each day for several weeks to achieve optimal results. This is an excellent option for patients who want to whiten their teeth gradually and on schedule.
HOW IS TEETH WHITENING DONE?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment used in a dental office or home using professional-grade products. The process involves removing stains and discoloration from the teeth to create a brighter, more attractive smile. Here’s how teeth whitening is typically done:
- Consultation: Before undergoing teeth whitening, patients will typically consult a dental professional to discuss their goals and determine the best treatment plan for their needs. During the consultation, the dentist will examine the patient’s teeth and gums to ensure they are healthy and determine if teeth whitening is a safe and appropriate treatment option.
- In-Office Teeth Whitening: In-office teeth whitening is a fast and effective treatment that typically takes about one hour to complete. A high-concentration bleaching gel is applied to the teeth and activated with a special light during the procedure. The gel is left on the teeth for a specified amount, usually 15-30 minutes before it is removed and reapplied as necessary. The process may be repeated several times until the desired level of whitening is achieved.
- Take-Home Teeth Whitening: Take-home teeth whitening involves using custom-made trays and a professional-grade whitening gel that patients can apply to their teeth at home. The dentist will take impressions of the patient’s teeth to create custom-fit trays designed to hold the whitening gel in place. The patient will then be instructed on how to apply the gel to the trays and how long to wear the trays each day. Take-home teeth whitening typically takes several weeks to achieve optimal results.
