Teeth whitening – is one of the most requested cosmetic dental procedures nowadays. Today, there are about 92% of Americans who whiten their teeth. This is a pretty simple way for perhaps everyone to enjoy stunningly white smile. For the first time, a little less than 120 years ago, hydrogen peroxide was used for teeth whitening: this procedure was offered by American dentist Vestlak in 1895. Today many materials have been tested for teeth whitening, but nothing better than hydrogen peroxide or its weaker form – carbamide peroxide has been discovered.
There is the only one material for various teeth whitening methods but in different chemical concentrations used in dentistry. According to research, it can be asserted that when healthy teeth are being whitened with hydrogen peroxide, they do not get damaged; the tooth structure and surrounding areas are not violated. Of course, one should not forget that this procedure must be performed following the rules and having prior consultation with a specialist.
Teeth whitening can be done at home or at the dentist’s office. Home teeth whitening can be carried out with whitening strips, gel trays. The specialist in the office will offer you the in – office teeth whitening, laser teeth whitening or teeth whitening with lamp. All of these techniques are really excellent and effective.
Teeth whitening at home take more time and patience. Tooth sensitivity can remain all the time of bleaching course (approximately 10-14 days). During the bleaching it is necessary to avoid staining foods and beverages, smoking.
In-office teeth whitening may require from 1 to 3 visits. Tooth sensitivity can be felt only for one day or can not be felt at all and a person should avoid coloring products, and should not smoke for only 1-2 days.
Teeth get white because of the active component – carbamide peroxide, which breaks down, and the separated oxygen gets into the enamel, thus splitting the colored compounds of the tooth. However, it is important to know before the whitening, if your teeth can be bleached and what whitening method is the most effective and safest in your case. The dentist will assess the condition of the teeth enamel: cracks, erosion, abrasion degree, uncovered tooth neck or if there is gingivitis, paradontosis and caries. Please be aware those dental restorations: fillings, crowns, veneers, do not get white and after teeth whitening they look darker.
For teeth whitening at home with trays, the dentist takes the teeth prints and produces individual tooth shape reflecting trays. A special ingredient – carbamide peroxide is added. Applications are performed between 10-14 days for a few (3-8) hours a day wearing them on the teeth.
During teeth whitening with strips at home, the doctor gives the patient a special material, which reminds the shape of a ribbon, but after placing it on the teeth, it sticks. The procedure is carried out gluing them from 1 to 3 hours per day and the course lasts from 10-14 days.
