TEETH WHITENING

Teeth Whitening is a Cosmetic Dentistry Process that lightens teeth and allows to take away stains and discoloration. Also, it is a popular treatment by both males and females alike and the treatments available range from one hour one time dental visits to take domestic do it yourself kits.

IN-OFFICE TEETH WHITENING

The first professional option is commonly referred to as in-office whitening. This procedure is performed in a dental office. During an appointment, your dental professional will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The entire office visit generally takes about 90 minutes and you will be able to see results immediately.

AT-HOME TEETH WHITENING

  • TRAY WHITENING
    Tray bleaching is a type of professional whitening that uses custom-made trays and whitening gel only available through your dentist. The whitening gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals help whiten stained teeth. Unlike strips, this process whitens all your natural teeth and may contain ingredients intended to provide maximum comfort. At-home professional tray whitening generally takes ten to 14 days, although you may notice results in as little as three to five days.
  • PAINT-ON TEETH WHITENERS
    There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options, and one type of readily accessible whitening products is commonly referred to as a “paint-on” teeth whitener. Paint-on whiteners can be purchased over-the-counter and generally are less expensive and less effective than whitening strips or professional options. Paint-on teeth whiteners consist of a gel that is applied to the tooth using a small brush. Paint-on whitening gel hardens into a film that coats the teeth, and dissolves in the mouth. As with any teeth-whitening regimen, it is wise to consult with a dental professional before use.
  • TEETH-WHITENING STRIPS
    Teeth-whitening strips are thin, flexible plastic (polyethylene) strips with a thin film of hydrogen peroxide on one side. Whitening strip kits come with two types of strips: strips for the upper teeth and strips for the lower teeth. The whitening agent is applied by placing the strips across your teeth and gently pressing the strips to ensure contact with all your teeth. Teeth-whitening strips are typically worn for 30 minutes a day, twice a day. The duration of treatment will vary.
  • WHITENING TOOTHPASTE AND MOUTHWASH
    The least expensive options are whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes. Designed to have “whitening” capabilities, toothpastes and mouthwashes work to remove surface stains using mild abrasives. However, unlike the materials used in professional whitening procedures, these products do not lighten the actual color shade of the tooth. Whitening toothpastes affect surface stains and will mildly lighten your teeth.

The best way to begin any tooth bleaching regimen is to schedule an appointment and talk to our doctor about the differences between in-office professional whitening and at-home whitening.

Frequently Asked Questions

Prices vary greatly depending on your individual situation and professional recommendations. The quickest professional teeth-whitening method will cost around $300 to $800. A slightly cheaper, but less convenient, teeth-whitening option is to purchase a home bleaching kit from your dentist, estimated at $300 to $600.

The best option is to visit Family Cosmetic Dentistry to see if whitening is right for you. Almost anyone can benefit from tooth whitening. However, here are a few things to be aware of as some people are more susceptible to tooth sensitivity than others particularly:

  • Those with generalized gingival (gum) recession.
  • Younger individuals in whom dentin is thinner and the enamel more porous.
  • Individuals with enamel loss exposing sensitive dentin; this can be due to wear, caused by grinding habits, or from acid erosion.

Yes, there are many studies supporting the overall safety of whitening by bleaching. Precautions are advised to protect surface enamel, for example by using calcium sulphate to prevent calcium loss and use of fluoride to promote surface hardness.

Not everyone is a good candidate for whitening depending upon if you have had cosmetic dentistry previously. Bleaching has little or no effect on most restorative materials. It may reduce the bond strength between enamel and composite restorations (tooth colored fillings), at least for a short time. Bleaching has no effect on porcelain or crowns. Ultimately, let us decide if you are a good candidate for whitening.

The claims of whitening by toothpastes mostly relate to their ability to help remove plaque and extrinsic or surface stains. The “whitening” toothpastes merely clean surface stains, but cannot change the underlying tooth color. Abrasives that are added to toothpastes in varying degrees depending on the brand, are essential for helping to remove plaque, and are usually in the form of silica. All ADA-approved toothpastes contain mild abrasives.

Bleaching is not always a permanent solution; the effects may diminish with the passing of time. Optimally, this period lasts six months to two years. Some studies quote periods of anywhere from 6 months to 10 years. Although fading is inevitable, it is possible to slow down the process by avoiding foods and habits that cause staining. Some individuals may need a tooth-whitening “touch-up” professionally, or with the home bleaching technique for 1-2 days, once or twice a year.

Both hydrogen peroxide and urea, a breakdown product of carbamide peroxide are found in every human cell; however it must be remembered that “it’s the dosage that can cause a problem.” Concerns are generally only valid for individuals who ignore instructions/guidelines and overuse whiteners for months or years.
