What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening or dental bleaching is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that will restore a bright smile. It is a safe and effective way to brighten teeth darkened naturally with age or stained through food and beverage consumption like tea or coffee and the use of tobacco products. Tooth bleaching works for most people. However, it is advisable to consult your dentist first. Your dentist will evaluate if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening since not every one is suitable for this. It must be noted that teeth darkened with the color of yellow, brown or orange respond well to teeth whitening. Grayish color caused by fluorosis, smoking or tetracycline can be lightened but with less-than-satisfactory results.
What is the Process for Getting my Teeth Whitened?
Teeth bleaching can be done in-office in less than an hour visit with a dentist. You can also whiten your teeth with the use of an over the counter kit that your dentist will prescribe you. Teeth bleaching products that contain peroxides can actually change your tooth’s natural color from five to seven and up to twelve shades brighter. Even a stubborn single tooth can be individually brightened.
