You may have yellow or discoloured teeth for multiple reasons. Some of these reasons include an addiction to smoking, drinking alcohol or other soft drinks, consumption of tobacco, etc. When a person has discoloured teeth, they often resort to smiling lesser than what they previously used to. They cannot portray a proper ear-to-ear smile flaunting all their teeth. They become extremely awkward as they have discoloured teeth and they want to find a solution for the same. For such people, our teeth whitening is a solution as through this treatment, the patient’s teeth can turn to white almost immediately. There are many people who are unaware of how the process of teeth whitening works. In this article, we will explain how our process works.
1) Consulting the Specialist
Before we begin the actual whitening process, we ensure that you are consulted by our trained dentist. This process is important because by doing this, our dentist can quickly understand whether your teeth require whitening or not. By doing so, you can save a lot of money in case your teeth do not require whitening.
2) Shade Testing
The dentist records the current shade of your teeth. By doing so, you come to know how bright your teeth have become post-treatment.
3) Plaque Removal
In this process of teeth whitening, our dentist removes all the plaque from the surface of your teeth. This is done in order to ensure that the teeth whitening process gets executed appropriately.
4) Teeth Drying
In this process, your mouth is dried up and rubber barriers are placed between your gums, tongue, and lips. This is to ensure that your teeth are dry enough throughout the procedure. Doing so also prevents the whitening chemicals from irritating your gums and tongue.
5) Teeth Whitening
Here, the teeth are pasted with our special solution rich with hydrogen peroxide. This agent is primarily a bleach to start with the teeth whitening process. Post this, the teeth are treated with a laser to activate the solution applied on the teeth, thereby providing a brighter and white shade of teeth.
After the teeth whitening process is successfully completed, it is imperative that you take the utmost care of your teeth. This is because even though the effects of teeth whitening last for a very long time, the effects may fade away if in case you keep consuming tobacco and alcohol. These things will only contribute to having discoloured teeth again. When you visit the nearest dentist, you can question them about the precautions to be taken to avoid discolouring your teeth.
