Teeth Whitening

What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening as the name suggests is the removal of yellowish tint from the tooth surface and bringing back the natural colour of it.

Causes of Teeth Stains or Yellow Teeth

• Food-derived substances such as red wine, tea or coffee.
• Fluorosis is a condition where teeth stain yellow from the inside due to excessive fluoride content in drinking water.
• Grinding of teeth.
• Smoking.

Teeth Whitening Treatment Techniques

1. Gels & Strips – These are peroxide-based whiteners that are applied to the teeth’s surface using a tiny brush. Normally, the gels are used for a few months. Strips are almost invisible strips covered with a peroxide-based whitening gel that must be used according to the manufacturer’s recommendations
2. Tray Based Teeth Whiteners – It involves filling the mouth guard tray with a solution gel containing peroxide for whitening. This tray will have to be worn in the night and has to be worn for longer if the discoloration is high.
3. Teeth Whitening Toothpaste – These whitening pastes should easily remove stains. But they do not act as bleach.
