What are dental teeth whitening?

It’s a perfect method of lightening the natural color of your teeth without interfering with the teeth’ surface. It’s a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment plan to rejuvenate your smile. Teeth whitening can be a remedy for the following tooth imperfections in patients.

  • Discoloration arising from old age
  • Stained teeth resulting from dark foods or liquids
  • Yellowing of teeth after periodontal work
  • Other forms of teeth discoloration and mismatch

Types of Dental Teeth Whitening Procedure

Dr. Nhu Le provides a combination of professional-take-home trays and in-office treatments. She partners with you during and after the treatment plan, addressing any queries you may have along the way. She monitors your treatment process and adjusts where necessary for the desired results.

Professional take-home whitening trays

  • Before commencing the process, the patient needs to thoroughly clean and floss the teeth so that the bleaching agent can penetrate easily for even whitening.
  • Insert the gel into the tray as instructed by Dr. Nhu Le to prevent the solution from spilling out onto the gums.
  • Wear the trays firmly against the teeth, triggering the gel to contact with saliva and begin to foam. If there is any solution seepage from the tray, you can use a cloth to wipe it to avoid gum irritation.
  • Wear the trays for the directed time limit. 
  • After the time limit, the patient must remove the tray and rinse the teeth immediately. You can use a toothbrush to remove the remaining gel.
  • Lastly, the patient needs to store the tray and the remaining gel for subsequent use.

In-Office treatments

This procedure can be performed in a dentist’s office in an hour. It involves applying a tooth whitening gel containing a relatively high concentration of peroxide gel and then projecting a unique light at your teeth for three -twenty-minute intervals with multiple reapplications of the gel between intervals.

Some dentists may use a laser that speeds up or accelerates the whitening procedure. A protective barrier is used to cushion your lips, gums, and tongue during the whitening process, ensuring the gel stays in its rightful space.

The dentist will give you customized whitening trays as follow-up whitening at home to maintain the results.
