Whitening is a process that lightens the shade of your teeth either by changing the intrinsic color or removing and controlling the extrinsic stains.
The process involved in whitening utilizes the bleaching property of certain chemicals, the longer you keep them on your teeth, the brighter and more brilliant your smile will become.
Teeth whitening is preferred by a lot of people these days for a variety of reasons, most common of them being the problem of staining.
Here are a few indications of teeth whitening –
Types of Whitening Processes
It is a safe teeth whitening process where our dentist will prepare customised mouth trays to fit your teeth adequately.
A whitening gel is applied over the tray, and it is worn by the patient overnight or for 2 hours during the day.
It may take up to 2 weeks to yield evident results from this process.
Other modes of home whitening include the use of strips and gels, rinses and toothpaste.
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is the active ingredient that is most commonly used in all whitening products and is delivered either as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.
A typical whitening gel contains between 10% and 44% carbamide peroxide, which is approximately equivalent to a 3% to 16% hydrogen peroxide concentration.
It acts as an oxidizing agent that breaks down all the free radicals, and these smaller particles attach to pigment molecules. These small molecules reflect less light creating a “whitening” effect.
A common risk associated with whitening is to develop burns or damage to the soft tissues during the process.
