What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental solution that helps remove stains and discoloration. The dentist would make use of highly effective whitening gels that are mainly composed of Hydrogen Peroxide and Carbamide Peroxide. Upon activating these molecules by flashing rays of laser light, the active ingredients break down and the enamel would absorb the Oxygen molecule that promotes whitening.
What is the procedure involved in teeth whitening?
The dentist would at first examine the patient's teeth for tartar or biofilms. Removal of such surfaces is mandatory for optimum whitening results. Hence, prior to whitening your teeth, the dentist would clean the surface of the enamel. The dentist would then carry out the procedure. A dental dam would ensure that saliva and other fluids do not interfere with the procedure. The whitening gel would be applied on the surface of the enamel whose active ingredients would be activated upon flashing a laser light over it. At-home teeth whitening procedure makes use of custom-made whitening trays. The dentist would provide patients with over-the-counter whitening gels or whitening strips for the same. The patient would be advised on clear instructions to follow while performing teeth whitening at home.
