Teeth whitening – Why and how?
Teeth discolor due to several factors. Oral hygiene plays a key role in preventing dental diseases and keeping the teeth bright white. Professional dental cleaning is very important to clear plaque – the biofilm of bacteria from the teeth surface. Plaque not only increases the chances of decay, and gum infection but also makes the teeth look dull and unhealthy.
Staining or yellowing as it is commonly known occurs from consumption of dark-colored fluids such as cola, wine, and coffee. While all these are some common causes for discoloration, there can be other internal factors and aging. The person may look old when the teeth are dull. He/she may lose confidence to smile. This can hamper the personality demotivating the person from taking part in social events.
Tooth whitening is done to clear stain and brighten teeth. The process involves the use of whitening agents such as hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide to clear stain. The in-office treatment is safe since protective gels are used over soft tissues.

The initial consultation will involve oral check-up. Our dentist may treat decay before starting the whitening process. Before and after pictures of teeth are taken, and dentist measures the brightness of teeth using shade scale. Teeth are cleaned to clear plaque, and the soft gum tissues are coated with protective gels, and the whitening gel is applied over teeth. Hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide can enter the porous enamel layer and clear stain through the oxidation process. A special light is used for accelerating the reaction. By the end of the treatment, patients can see the difference the brightness of teeth.
