Let’s know more about major issues in dental health faced by one and all -
Teeth discoloration is a common complaint which patients express when visiting their dentist. Let us know what causes it and how -
Over time,the teeth get stained due to tooth colors damaging agents like coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco.
Color damaging agents contain intensely pigmented molecules called chromogensthat get attached to tooth enamel and decolorize the tooth surface producing extrinsic stains.
At the same time, these chromogens reach the inner softer and more porous dentin area and cause more challenging intrinsic stains.
As we age, dentin darkens, making the teeth color darker, giving yellow or stained appearance.
If you face teeth discoloration issues, then teeth whitening is a great choice to lighten and brighten your teeth.
What are teeth whitening treatment?
Teeth whitening involves the removal of tooth staining or discoloration caused by environmental or chemical factors.
Using a low concentration bleach, we can help you achieve long-lasting results with less sensitivity.
Different bleach concentrations are available to suit your individual needs, including your lifestyle time, availability, and tooth sensitivity.
Process of teeth whitening
Based on the individual requirements, teeth whitening involves the use of various components:
Whitening toothpaste with mild silica abrasives or cleansers helps remove surface stains by gently scrubbing the teeth's exterior enamel.
Peroxide bleaching agents help remove more rigid and deeper stains.
Hydrogen peroxide is a potent oxidizing bleaching agent that breaks up chromogens into smaller, less colored, and more diffused molecules. It is the quickest way to whiten a deep intrinsic stain.
Types of teeth whitening treatment performed by
Dr. Jyotsna Anjankar
This process is suitable if you have done a root canal treatment. Sometimes, a root canal treated tooth can have intrinsic stains. A bleaching agent like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is placed inside the tooth and left until it achieves the desired color. Once done, your dentist will remove it and seal it with a white (composite) filling.
This treatment helps the brightening and lightening of natural, necessary, and healthy teeth. Your dentist will apply a bleaching solution to the essential tooth surface. This type of whitening can be done in a clinic or at your home.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
This whitening form involves applying a potent bleaching agent to the teeth. Here, the bleach is stronger than the one in a DIY product. In-office teeth whitening typically takes one to three hours, i.e., a single visit. After the treatment, if you take care of your teeth properly, the effects will persist for more than a year.
DIY Or Home Teeth Whitening
There are plenty of home teeth whitening options, including toothpaste, whitening strips, whitening gum, paint on gels, and mouth trays with gel. The agents used in-home teeth whitening products are much weaker than those used at a dental clinic.
When would you need teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry method. It is a simple process that most dentists offer, and it is one of the cost-effective ways to brighten your smile.
The purpose of treatment varies from person to person. Like variations in our hair, complexion, and teeth color are dissimilar from one person to another. Indications for teeth whitening include intrinsic tooth staining, fluorosis, tetracycline staining, and tobacco staining.
Common issues that affect your teeth’s surface and cause darkening or discoloration include drinking dark beverages, consuming foods with many pigments like berries, colorful spices like turmeric, or bright-colored candies. Besides, chewing or smoking tobacco can stain your teeth.
Trauma can lead to a darker color as the mouth reacts to the injury by producing more dentin (the darker layer under the enamel).
Fluoride is effective in fighting cavities, but kids who use toothpaste with a higher amount of fluoride are at risk of discoloration.
Children who take too many antibiotics like tetracycline can get discoloration of their adult teeth later in life.
The discoloration can also be a side effect of high blood pressure drugs, antihistamines, and anti-psychotic medications
Side-effects or risks associated with teeth whitening treatment
The teeth tend to be very sensitive, and sensitivity can last for a few days.
Depending on the product used in the treatment and its concentration, sensitivity could be a concern.
After the treatment, your teeth behave like a sponge and absorb whatever you consume. If you have wine, coffee, tea, grapefruit juice, for sure, it will absorb its color. The teeth may look worse than they did before because it absorbs the stain.
If the treatment solution is highly concentrated and comes in contact with your thin or fragile gums, it can irritate or recede your gum tissue.
If you use a tray that is inappropriately adapted, it can compress the gum tissue.
If you smoke and have greyish or brownish teeth, your teeth will not whiten as effectively as yellow teeth.
Ensure your mouth is healthy because if you have gingivitis or gum disease, bleaching could cause irritation and be quite painful and counterproductive.
Teeth whitening works for most grown-ups at any age, but it will not work on caps, crowns, veneers, or white fillings.
Conditions like dental disease, use of antibiotics, or injury to a tooth may cause teeth darkening; in such cases, tooth whiteners will work inefficiently.
