What Is Teeth Bleaching?
Teeth Bleaching is a cosmetic oxygenation method used to whiten the teeth that have changed color for various reasons.
Genetic factors, old age, use of some drugs, poor oral hygiene, smoking, some of the food and drinks consumed can be the reason behind the discoloration of teeth.
Bleaching process can be applied on natural teeth only. There will not be any change on the color of dental bridgework and esthetic fillings in the color of teeth after bleaching process.
An apparent change in the color of teeth is ensured in most cases after bleaching. Bleaching process should be applied by a dentist.
How Does It Work?
Here, thin plaques, customized for the patient, are used. The plaque filled with bleaching jell is worn for some time (several hours during the day or through the night) each day. It usually shows an effective result within one week.
What Causes Teeth To Turn Yellow?
There’s a range of reasons teeth become discolored. Genetics, your environment, even taking certain medication can all have an impact on the whiteness of your smile.
The most common reason is surface stains on your enamel. This is down to everyday food, drinks and lifestyle choices. Over time, these stains can work their way to the layer below enamel, known as dentin. When this becomes stained, the whole tooth looks darker because of the translucency of enamel.
