What are the various teeth whitening options?
Conventional teeth whitening: It is the most commonly used means of teeth whitening and is performed at a dental practice. The dentist will check for candidacy, during which factors such as cavities and tooth restorations are taken into consideration. The teeth will be cleaned thoroughly, and the dentist places a rubber dam on them to cover the gums. A whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide is used for the procedure. It will be applied on the teeth, spread evenly, and allowed to stay for a few minutes. It will then be rinsed off, and depending on the severity of staining, the procedure will be repeated.
Take-home whitening kits: If you wish to stay at home and carry out the whitening yourself, we will offer customized whitening kits. It will consist of custom-fabricated whitening trays made according to the contour of your teeth and a whitening gel prescribed by the dentist. You can take them home, clean your teeth, apply a small amount of whitening gel in each compartment of the trays, and place them on your teeth. This whitening method is known to be more efficient as the trays keep the saliva from coming in contact with the gel, and also keeps the gel in continuous contact with the teeth. You may repeat the procedure as required.
Laser teeth whitening: It is an advanced form of teeth whitening. The dentist will clean the teeth and apply a photosensitive whitening gel on them. It will be activated using an activating laser of a specific intensity, which speeds up the procedure and renders better and long-lasting results. Patients who have a busy schedule can especially benefit from this procedure.
