Do you have stained teeth that make you feel self-conscious about smiling? Teeth whitening can be a good solution for certain types of tooth staining.
Teeth can be stained by foods, drinks, smoking and certain medications. Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that can lighten the colour of your teeth by using a safe dental bleaching agent. Individual results vary and are based on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.
One of the methods for whitening teeth uses a 'tray'. First of all, impressions are taken ... ... from which a study model is made. This is painted with a special material ... ... which increases the thickness of the tooth area. When the tray is prepared, a small pocket is produced. The whitening solution occupies this pocket ... ... ensuring that it only comes into contact with the required surfaces ... ... and that no damage is done to the soft gums.
There are many reasons for discolouration. Sometimes this is due to a filling showing through the tooth surface. First of all the old amalgam filling is removed. The old root treatment is then sealed and the whitening material inserted. A temporary filling is placed and the whitening is given time to occur. The whitening material is then removed and the filling made permanant.
