Dental bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a common procedure in general dentistry but most especially in the field of cosmetic dentistry. A child’s deciduous teeth are generally whiter than the adult teeth that follow. As a person ages the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, as the enamel becomes less porous. Teeth can also become stained by bacterial pigments, foodstuffs and tobacco. Certain antibiotic medications (like tetracycline) can also lead to teeth stains or a reduction in the brilliance of the enamel this can be achived in a harmless way with the teeth whitening process. Bleaching must be done by specialised expert dentists.
Bleaching has 2 types:
1) Home Bleaching: You will apply this method in your home with dentists orientation and instructions. A special measurement has taken from the patient’s mouth and specialised whitening plaque is prepared. Before sleeping, water-based bleaching chemicals are placed into the plaque. The plaque which is placed in mouth through the night develops and the whitening is achieved. The process is applied in 7-10 days according to the amount of whitening and reaching the best result.
2) Dental surgery Bleaching: This process is applied by dentists here at the clinic when bleaching needs to be faster. The gums are isolated and drugs are taken. For improving the effectiveness of drugs, blue light which have used in radiated fillings, is applied.
