All About Our Teeth Whitening Process

Teeth whitening is basically the dental procedure undergone to regain one’s natural tooth shade or making it more white beyond his or her natural shades. Apart from treatment, foods that might cause stains in tooth, like coffee, tea smoking or chewing tobacco should be avoided to get as well as maintain a whiter teeth. A whitened teeth is essentially achieved by undergoing with some dental process like “bleaching” or “polishing”.

Why does your teeth loose its shine at all?

Tooth discoloration is caused mainly due to two main reasons:

  • Poor dental hygiene habits
  • Careless consumption of foods and beverages that cause heavy tooth staining
  • Ageing and the physical factors related to it!

It is therefore utterly important for you to have a list of the to-dos in your knowledge so far as maintaining a whiter teeth is concerned. Avoid the following, in order to retain a whiter teeth:

  • 1
    Addiction to smoking and consumption of other tobacco products
  • 2
    Consumption of foods containing tannin such as tea, coffee etc.
  • 3
    Consuming other staining foods like beets, tomato sauce, candies, dark chocolates etc.​​​​
  • 4
    Excess use of antibiotics that are harmful fro your dental health

Internal issues also cause loss of your tooth’s original color. Exposure to high levels of fluoride and antibiotics damage the tooth enamel and dentin. Trauma or accidents are unfortunate causes responsible for loss of a beautiful smile too. Finally ‘ageing’ is an important cause behind tooth discoloration. As you age, the enamel layer wears away and the dentin is exposed which easily gets stained while you are consuming different foods. Moreover, with age may tend to suffer from the condition of ‘dry mouth’. When the saliva production reduces, bacteria build up increases affecting your teeth too.

How is the whitening procedure pursued?

In order to remove stains dentist uses chemical that reacts in between the layers of teeth where stains generally occur.

Hydrogen peroxide is the generally used chemical at dental offices to give you those pearly whites! This is an active material which reacts and causes oxidation and helps breaking the stained compounds.

Dentists generally deject the use of teeth whitening toothpastes available over-the-counter (OTC) because it may destroy teeth sensitivity.

Two ways to undergo teeth whitening

Whitening can be undergone in both ways - using at-home techniques like whitening gels (available over the counter) or whitening trays & a professional in-office dental whitening.

Wondering which to go for?

Firstly, note that there are a number of differences between an in-office and an at-home whitening treatment. You should know them in order to arrive upon the right decision for yourself! Usually an in-office treatment is far more recommended than the OTC available products that are used at home. Why so? The important reasons are as follows -

  • Same day Results:  With In-office treatments, it is possible to achieve 5 to 8 shades whiter teeth on the very day of your treatment! Home -use kits need to be used again and again over a prolonged period of time.
  • Sensitivity Issues:  Incorrect usage of the at-home used whitening kits, may cause sensitivity issues. Moreover, these products should not come in contact with your gums. These details are difficult to be kept in mind, while being used at home.
  • Better and longer lasting results:  Whitening treatments that are undergone in dental offices under the supervision of professional dental experts, have proven to yield results that last much more longer than the at-home kits!
