What is Teeth Whitening?
In the emerging world of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening reigns supreme. This procedure is valued by men and women alike, teeth whitening (also known as teeth bleaching) treatments are available to satisfy every budget, time frame and temperament.
A child's deciduous teeth are generally whiter than the adult teeth that follow. As a person ages the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, as the enamel becomes less porous. Teeth can also become stained by bacterial pigments, foodstuffs and tobacco.
Tooth whitening can be a highly effective way of lightening the natural color of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete color change; but it will lighten the existing shade.
The long and the short of it is that teeth whitening works. Virtually everyone who opts for this cosmetic treatment will see moderate to substantial improvement in the brightness and whiteness of their smile. However, teeth whitening is not a permanent solution and requires maintenance or "touch-ups" for a prolonged effect.
What teeth whitening procedures are available?
Professional bleaching is the most common form of tooth whitening. Your dentist will be able to tell you if you are suitable for the treatment, and will supervise it if you are. First the dentist will put a rubber shield or a gel on your gums to protect the soft tissue. They will then apply the whitening product to your teeth, using a specially made tray which fits into your mouth like a gum-shield.
The 'active ingredient' in the product is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As the active ingredient is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth color is made lighter.
Another procedure that is being used is laser whitening or 'power whitening'. During this procedure a rubber dam is put over your teeth to protect the gums, and a bleaching product is painted onto your teeth. Then a light or laser is shone on the teeth to activate the chemical. The light speeds up the chemical reaction of the whitening product and the color change can be achieved more quickly using this procedure. Laser whitening is said to make teeth up to five or six shades lighter.
The effects of whitening can last up to three years. However, this will vary from person to person. The effect is less likely to last as long if you smoke, or eat or drink products that can stain your teeth.
You can help to keep your teeth white by cutting down on the amount of food and drink you have that can stain teeth. Don't forget, stopping smoking can also help prevent discoloring and staining.
We recommend the following tips to care for your teeth:
- brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
- cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks
- visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend.
