What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening, or bleaching, is a non-invasive and simple dental treatment that will lighten the color of your natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to create a dazzling white smile.
Did you know that having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern for most dental patients? Fortunately there are many different kinds of treatments to easily and painlessly whiten teeth.
How Does Tooth Bleaching Work?
The most popular teeth whitening method among our St Louis and Hazelwood MO patients uses a home teeth bleaching system that will whiten teeth. But you may prefer the results of professional dental whitening. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, any old fillings, crowns, or other dental implants may need to be replaced for effective results. Replacement of any dental restorations will be done after your whitening treatment so that they will match your newly whitened teeth.
Professional tooth bleaching usually requires two visits to our office near St Louis MO. During your first appointment, impressions will be made of your teeth in order to fabricate custom clear plastic trays to hold the whitening solution. During your second appointment, you will try on the trays to ensure proper fit and any needed adjustments will be made. Depending upon the degree of staining and desired level of whitening, you will wear these trays with special whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks. It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity when you whiten teeth. But don’t worry, it will subside shortly after you have stopped whitening your teeth.
You will receive care instructions to help whiten teeth as well as whitening trays. We encourage our Hazelwood MO patients to visit us again regularly to help maintain a beautiful, white and healthy smile.
Tooth bleaching is not permanent and a touch-up may be needed every several years. Your teeth will need to be whitened more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea or wine.
Reasons for tooth bleaching include:
- Fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development)
- Normal wear of outer tooth layer
- Stained teeth due to medications (tetracycline, etc.)
- Yellow, brown stained teeth
