Different types of Bleaching Procedure


a) Office Bleach: First teeth cleaning & polishing is done, then your gums & lips are covered by a protecting gel and then the bleaching agent is applied on the teeth, waited for some time and then a special light is exposed on the teeth. This is done for about 3 to 4 times in an hour or in 3 to 4 sittings, making the teeth whiter than before.

b) Home Bleach: After teeth cleaning & polishing is done, your upper and lower teeth impression (measurement) is taken and sent to the lab for making the soft bleaching (Vulcanized Rubber) Trays. Next day the Trays and the bleaching agent (gel) are given to you & the procedure to put the gel in the Trays & to wear it is explained to you

 Factors leading to Tooth Discoloration
 
1) Smoking or Tobacco Chewing.
2) Excess Tea, Coffee, Cola’s and Red Wine.
3) Antibiotics such as Tetracycline (BlackTeeth) or chloramphenicol (YellowTeeth)taken at a very young age.
4) Excess of Fluoride in drinking water.
5) Age causes natural darkening of teeth.
6) Dental Infection, old mis-match fillings and a tooth treated for Root Canal.

 What is Bleaching?
 
Bleaching is a simple procedure where the bleaching agent(Hydrogen peroxide) are applied on the teeth which in turn removes the external and internal stains and thus making the teeth a shade better than existing.

 Side effects of Bleaching
 
No Side effects are caused by any of the bleaching procedures. Some patients my experience discomfort or sensitivity for few days which goes away in 2-3 days after treatment is stopped. Till that time, either use desensitizing mouth washes & tooth paste or decrease the number of hours each day or do the bleaching procedure at a gap of 2 or 3 days instead of everyday.

 Post Treatment Care
 
Refrain yourself from the factors mentioned above leading to teeth discoloration.
Proper and Regular brushing is compulsory. Regular once yearly check-up and teeth cleaning (if required) should be done.
Regular touch up sessions can be carried out once a year to maintain whiter teeth for a longer period.

 How long will my Bleaching last
 
Bleaching can last from 3 to 12 months depending on your external food habits, acidity, smoking, proper brushing & regular teeth cleaning.
