Teeth whitening is one of the best methods for improving your smile, and can be utilized by over 90% of the population. If you have always wanted a brighter smile, or if your teeth have become more discolored or less white over time, teeth whitening is the number one method to restore or improve their shade.

Teeth whitening is a procedure that uses special elements to remove stubborn stains on teeth. Being a porous layer, the enamel which is the outermost layer of a tooth, is prone to hoarding stains. This is more likely to occur with poor oral hygiene practices.

Teeth Whitening

Improper dental care isn’t the only thing that can contribute to the yellowing of your teeth. Sometimes a diet of staining foods, such as constant coffee or wine consumption, tobacco smoking, and drinking gaseous beverages, can cause your teeth to turn yellow over time.

To remove stains underneath the enamel, your dentist will apply a whitening product to your teeth, which is usually a whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide. The gel itself cannot penetrate through the enamel. Therefore, the dentist uses ultraviolet light to activate the product and help it penetrate the enamel.

Once the safe ultraviolet rays are applied, catalyzing the process, the gel particles begin to move faster. As the whitening gel penetrates the enamel through its pores, it begins to chemically break down the stains underneath.

Duration of
Teeth Whitening Procedure

Unlike most procedures in dentistry, teeth whitening is luckily a very short procedure. The entire process from start to finish lasts around 1 hour to 2 hours maximum. Although a quick procedure, the results are very long lasting. In fact, with maintenance and aftercare, you can keep the pearly glow for a life time

Typically your dentist will run an oral examination before starting with the procedure. The purpose of this analysis is to make sure your oral health will not conflict with the process. For instance, gum inflammation, serious cavities, and other sensitive oral diseases will likely be an obstacle for your teeth whitening treatment.

In cases like this, your dentist will have to treat the underlying issues beforehand and then follow through with the teeth whitening.

The Teeth Whitening

Following teeth whitening, you can enjoy a brighter fresher smile. However, you need to understand that your enamel will always be a porous layer, but especially right after treatment. Your teeth will be very susceptible to staining in the first two days from treatment.

Therefore, it is best to avoid smoking as well as the consumption of foods or drinks that can stain your smile.

The aftercare routine for is generally not demanding. Make sure you brush, floss, and use antibacterial mouthwash routinely. And to maintain the results for the longest time; stay away or minimize the consumption of staining products and foods.
