Just about anyone is a candidate for teeth whitening. At Malligai Dental Hospital our dentists and hygienists will have to assess your teeth and overall oral health to determine if you are fit to do the procedure.
Yes, it is very important that we see the patient and examine them prior to the whitening appointment. A complete cleaning of all the teeth is also recommended before the whitening procedure.
During your consultation period, the dentist will evaluate your teeth and gums to locate for any signs of disease or infection, and to know if the whitening procedure will benefit you. Review of your concerns, expectations, and lifestyle will also be done to decide the best whitening option that will work best for you. It’s also essential to check for any dental decay or any major sensitivities before getting your teeth whitened. Your hygienist will also make a note of previous dental works done on you like crowns, fillings, and veneers which may not respond to the whitening procedure.
The entire in-office teeth whitening treatment can take up to 2 hours. Firstly, impressions of your teeth are taken for custom-fitted home trays and to do necessary arrangements for gum protection, following which the whitening gel is applied. A special light/lamp may be used.
Post the in-office whitening treatment, a home whitening kit along with a custom tray will be provided, in order to enhance the treatment outcomes. You may have to wear the tray each day for about an hour, for a minimum of 3 days post your appointment to complement your whitening treatment. It is essential to brush and floss your teeth before you wear your whitening tray.
The duration of the result lasting depends upon on your genes, lifestyle and oral hygiene, but in general, they can last up to a year. Top up treatment has to be performed every 3-6 months (or as prescribed by your clinician) to maintain a beautiful sheen, especially if you smoke or drink coffee or tea.
The color of your teeth should match the whites of your eyes. A naturally white smile is a delightful asset anyone can have.
It is not unusual to experience tooth sensitivity during the first 24 hours after the whitening procedure. Analgesics like Ibuprofen will be advised by your clinician to relieve your discomfort. The sensation of sensitivity and soreness will gradually reduce after one or two days.
Caring for newly whitened teeth is simple as maintaining a routine dental hygiene! Brush your teeth twice daily and floss once daily. Try using a fluoride toothpaste as recommended by your dentist. Cleaning of your teeth cleaned every 6 months once is mandatory. Avoid acidic and dark-colored foods and beverages like tea, coffee, red wine, sports drinks, carbonated drinks and sauces like tomato, soy, and curry to maintain the white color of your teeth.
It is a safe procedure for healthy teeth and it does not injure the enamel. The in-office whitening gel’s active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide which dissociates into oxygen molecules that removes the stain and enhances the color of your teeth while leaving your tooth structure unaltered.
