Tooth whitening is an effective way to lighten the existing colour of your teeth and get rid of discolourations and stains. This cosmetic dental procedure can have a great impact on your teeth that helps improve your confidence level. Though our dentists prefer performing whitening treatment for brighter and whiter teeth, you will have to repeat the procedure several times to maintain the colour of your teeth.
The right candidate for this procedure is the one who has a good dental health, tooth discolourations and stains and knows the pros and cons of the treatment. The method involves removing stains from the tooth surface that occurs by drinking tea, coffee, and red wine and eating coloured foods. If you take tobacco products, chances are you will lose your teeth colour, however, whitening can help restore your overall oral health. Knowing the details about whitening and the expected results will enable you to make an informed decision for restoring your gorgeous smile.
You will have to see your dentist several times for a few months in order to get your teeth whitened. He will create an impression of your teeth to prepare the mouthguard and then tell how you should use it with the bleaching gel. You need to apply this gel for at least 2 to 4 weeks regularly at home. There are some whitening gels that can be left for more than 8 hours that lessens the treatment time. Your dentist knows if you need to undergo this procedure to restore your teeth colour and attractive smile.
Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution and it may last from a few months to 3 years at the most, depending on the person undergoing it. If you are addicted to smoking or taking drinks like tea, coffee or red wine, the effects won’t last long, thus giving you stained teeth again.
