The Teeth Whitening Process
Teeth whitening lightens your teeth and removes stains and discolouration along the way. This is among the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures and is great even without any special occasion.
A dental check-up is necessary to identify the cause of the discolouration and the steps to take after. A “before” picture may be taken to compare progress as the treatment succeeds.
In office teeth whitening usually requires two-three dental appointments. Your dentist prepares your teeth for the procedure by cleaning them and removing plaque and food debris in the mouth. A bleaching gel that contains hydrogen peroxide is directly applied on the teeth and a specialised light is trained over them to activate the gel and start the bleaching process.
Take home services usually take up to two-three weeks before the desired shade is achieved. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth from which the personalised bleaching trays will be manufactured. Detailed usage instructions will be given as well.
The Top Benefits Of Teeth Whitening
A study by Kelton Research titled “The Impact of Whiter Teeth on Key First Impressions” revealed the benefits of whiter teeth to success and personal life. According to study, which used simulations of real-life situations, 58% of the participants were more likely to be hired and about 53 % were offered a higher salary after their teeth were whitened. On the personal level, evaluators expressed more interest in continuing their “date” with about 54% of the participants after their teeth had been whitened.
The study further shows that those with more radiant smile are attributed to have positive qualities such as financial stability, trustworthiness, and professional success.
Who are ideal candidates for teeth whitening?
Not everyone can enjoy teeth whitening. There are certain qualities needed. A dental examination is important to identify ideal candidates. Those with cavities must be treated first to avoid the bleach reaching the pulp. Pregnant women are also recommended to put off teeth whitening. Discolouration caused by intrinsic factors (tooth trauma, genetics, Dentinogenesis Imperfecta) is treated by other cosmetic dentistry services.
