Discolored teeth can entirely ruin the appearance of a person's smile. Having to pose for photos or attend social gatherings with dull or discolored teeth can be quite uncomfortable for an individual. Hence, we can help to enhance the appearance of your smile using our teeth whitening solutions.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a dental procedure that is used to get rid of the stains from the surface of the teeth. The dentist uses a whitening gel that is rich in Hydrogen Peroxide for the purpose. The gel releases oxygen molecules when applied to the teeth surface, which penetrates the porous surface and bleaches the staining particles, thereby helping to get rid of the stains from the enamel. At the end of the procedure, you will be left with whiter teeth, thereby making your smile appear more pleasing.
Conventional teeth whitening
It is the simplest and most common means of getting whiter teeth. The dentist applies the whitening gel to the teeth and leaves it on the surface for a few minutes. During this, the teeth will be whitened by the oxygen molecules penetrating the enamel's porous surface. The gel will be removed by rinsing, and the procedure may be repeated multiple times if required.
Whitening using customized whitening trays
Custom-fabricated whitening trays (made from dental-grade plastic) that resemble a mouthguard will be given to the patient by the dentist. The patient will have to use the trays along with the recommended whitening gel. It allows the gel to be in constant contact with the teeth, thereby preventing the intervention of saliva during the process. More importantly, you can do the whitening at home by yourself.
Laser teeth whitening
Laser teeth whitening is known to be the most advanced and quickest type of teeth whitening. Here, we use a photosensitive whitening gel instead of the regular one. It will be activated using a blue light laser, which goes on to produce a foam. The procedure is known for its short chair time involved and the long-lasting results that it produces. Individuals with an especially tight schedule can benefit from laser teeth whitening.
