Teeth Whitening
Rejuvie dental treatment

Introduction :

Teeth whitening lighten teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.

Whitening is not a one-time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.

The outer layer of a tooth is called the enamel. The color of natural teeth is created by the reflection and scattering of light off the enamel, combined with the color of the dentin under it. Your genes affect the thickness and smoothness of the enamel. Thinner enamel allows more of the color of the dentin to show through. Having smoother or rougher enamel also affects the reflection of light and therefore the color.

Every day, a thin coating (pellicle) forms on the enamel and picks up stains. Tooth enamel also contains pores that can hold stains.
The most common reasons for teeth to get yellow or stained are:

  • Using tobacco
  • Drinking dark-colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
  • Not taking good care of your teeth
  • Aging makes teeth less bright as the enamel gets thinner and the dentin becomes darker.

The treatment

Other dental problems can affect the success of tooth whitening. For example, cavities need to be treated before teeth are whitened. That’s because the whitening solution can pass through decayed areas and reach the inner parts of the tooth. If your gums have receded, the exposed roots of your teeth may appear yellow or discolored. Whitening products will not make them whiter.

Next, the dentist will clean your teeth. This will remove the film of bacteria, food and other substances that build up on your teeth and contribute to the staining. Once this is done, the whitening procedure begins.

First, your dentist will apply a substance that covers and protects the gums around the teeth. Then, the whitening agent will be placed on the teeth.

A special light activates the whitening agents. After the whitening agent is applied, the dentist will shine the light on your teeth.

Repeat treatments

In general no repeat treatment is necessary. The effect of the whitening will last around 2-3 years depending on your lifestyle.

Things like coffee, tea, red wine and smoking will reduce the time of the effect.

After Care & Side effects

Whitening is unlikely to cause serious side effects, although some people’s teeth may become more sensitive for a short while. You may get mild gum irritation as well. Women should not have their teeth whitened while pregnant.

Good oral hygiene is important to preserve the effect of the whitening.

Home maintenance products (whitening toothpaste and whitening mouthwash), can preserve the whitening for longer.
