What Causes Teeth to Discolour?
While we all wish to have white teeth there are many factors that will cause discolouration. This can include tooth decay resulting from improper care as well as certain foods, smoking and coffee. In addition to the above all teeth naturally darken as we age.
Both in-office and at-home teeth whitening require complex preparation. You should visit our Milton Dentist Office prior to undertaking any teeth whitening procedure. In this we will ensure there are no cavities, cracks or decayed areas, through which the teeth whitening material can penetrate into the tissue or tooth and cause serious pain. *Note: visiting a Milton Dentist Office is essential in order to ensure your teeth are ready for the teeth whitening procedure.
There are several teeth whitening techniques including bleaching, ultrasonic teeth whitening and light-activated teeth whitening. It is strongly recommended to visit a Milton Dentist Office to choose a method that will work better in your individual case. At Alpha Dental Care we utilize teeth bleaching:
Bleaching involves a number of complex procedures and using strong agents, which can be provided by a professional dentist only. In-office teeth whitening involves the use of a gel that contains hydrogen peroxide. The staff at Alpha Dental Care will apply the gel directly to the tooth enamel. Oxygen from the peroxide binds with the dental pigment and whitens the enamel. The procedure lasts 30 to 60 minutes. To apply the substance directly to teeth, the dentist will provide a custom-made plastic tray filled with the substance and fix it on the patient’s teeth. Later, this procedure can carried out at home for a period of time as recommended by the dentist.
Teeth Whitening generally lasts 3 to 6 months.
