Whitening

Whitening, or "tooth bleaching", is the most common cosmetic dental procedure. While many whitening options are now available, including over the counter products, dentist-supervised treatments remain the recommended procedures for lightening discolored teeth. Most bleaching products are peroxide-based and are actually capable of altering the colours of the tooth itself. However, not all tooth discolourations respond to tooth-bleaching treatments. Individuals contemplating tooth-bleaching should consult with a dentist to determine the cause of the tooth discolouration and to determine whether a bleaching treatment will have the desired result. This step is especially important for patients with fillings, root canal treatments, crowns and/or with extremely dark stains on the anterior teeth. A number of different bleaching techniques and products are available to patients. Your dentist will use one of these two methods to whiten your teeth:. There are three methods for bleaching teeth. The method that will work best for you depends on the number of teeth that need to be bleached, and on how badly they are stained (or discoloured). Your dentist may suggest: Putting a special bleach on your stained teeth and using heat (or heat and light) to start the bleaching action; or Wearing a custom-made mouthguard filled with a special bleach for part of each day; or Brushing with a special bleach mixed in toothpaste.
