Common teeth whitening procedures
Conventional whitening: Conventional teeth whitening is the most preferred type of whitening, as it is simple and comparatively inexpensive. The dentist will diagnose your teeth and determine the severity of discoloration. The teeth will be cleaned thoroughly, and any tartar deposits present on the teeth surfaces will be removed by scaling. A rubber dam will be placed on the teeth to cover the gums and tooth roots. The gel will be applied to the teeth and spread evenly. Oxygen molecules will be liberated by the gel, which enters the minute pores and bleaches the staining particles. The gel can be rinsed after a few minutes, and the procedure may be repeated multiple times depending on the severity of staining.
Take-home whitening trays: Teeth whitening need not necessarily be done in a dental practice. We offer customized take-home whitening trays to whiten your teeth while resting in the comfort of your house. We will scan the teeth to create a digital impression and send it to a dental laboratory to fabricate the trays from a dental-grade plastic material. You can take the trays home along with a prescribed whitening gel. You can squeeze a small amount of whitening gel on to each compartment of the tray and place it on your teeth. The trays keep the saliva from coming in contact with the gel, which helps to increase its effectiveness.
Laser teeth whitening: Using a laser to speed up the whitening procedure is an ingenious solution, thanks to the advancements in dentistry. The dentist applies a photosensitive whitening gel on the teeth and activates it using a laser of the right intensity. This procedure produces excellent results in a short span of time.
