Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to improve the color of natural tooth enamel. It is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Many people are concerned with the color of their teeth.

Two popular ways to whitened your teeth:

In office bleaching

With this procedure patients will notice their teeth getting whiter the same day. The bleaching material is placed directly on the teeth and patients will notice an improvement of the color of their teeth in just one hour.

Home tooth whitening system

At the first appointment, impressions or molds are taken of your teeth to make clear plastic custom trays. At the second appointment, the trays are tried on and instructions are given. The trays are worn with a specific whitening solution usually for 30 minutes a day. The patient is instructed to bleach at home for 10-14 days.

Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any existing fillings or crowns. Replacement of any fillings will be done after bleaching so that the existing teeth will match the newly whitened teeth.

Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up may be needed every six months or so. If the patient is a smoker or drinks coffee, tea, or wine then touch-ups will need to be more often.

Reasons for whitening:

• Yellow and brown stained teeth.
• Excessive fluoridation during tooth development known as fluorosis.
• Stained teeth due to medications.
• Everyday wear of enamel or outer tooth layer.
