Bleaching is one
of the most common procedures of dental cosmetics. It brightens teeth
that are discolored, stained, or have been darkened because of injury
or drinking habits. Any tooth, even those that have had root canal surgery,
can receive bleaching treatment. This can be done by a dentist in the
dental clinic or at home.
There are two types of tooth stains:
INTRINSIC STAINS (Internal
stains): This means the stain occurs from within the tooth. This type
of stain cannot be removed by brushing and flossing and sometimes bleaching
may not be effective. Some causes of intrinsic staining are injury to
the tooth, certain medications (such as tetracycline) taken during tooth
formation stage or an excess fluoride ingested during the formation
EXTRINSIC STAINS (External
stains): This is staining of the tooth surface. Some sources of extrinsic
stains are cigarettes, cigars, paan masala , coffee, tea, or foods that
contain a lot of spices. This type of staining can sometimes be removed
by good tooth brushing habits or by professional oral prophylaxis (scaling).
Occasionally people experience temporary discomfort during the bleaching
treatment, such as tooth sensitivity. These symptoms are transient &
disappear within one to three days after completion of the treatment.
It is important that the manufacturer’s directions are followed
precisely.Overall, tooth bleaching under professional supervision is
an effective method for whitening the teeth.

Instructions for Home Bleaching
Bleaching is used to enhance your smile by brightening your existing
natural teeth. Bleaching will not make crowns, Veneers/Laminates, bonding
or existing fillings lighter. If you bleach and have these type of restorations
in your smile line you may want to have these changed after you bleach.
When you start to bleach we typically have you bleach your upper teeth
first when you are bleaching both upper & lower teeth. This will provide
you with a comparison so you know just how much your teeth are whitening.
Bleaching usually takes 1-2weeks for the complete result. We cannot predict
the exact level of shade changes you will have with bleaching, but it
will always make your teeth lighter.
- Brush and floss teeth thoroughly prior to placing the
tray in your mouth.
- Place small drop of gel in tray at each tooth site
where whitening is desired.
- Seat tray completely and firmly onto teeth.
- Wipe off excess gel with toothbrush or clean finger.
- Trays are to be worn overnight.
- When trays are removed, rinse with cool water and remove
residual material and store in case. Keep your trays out of the sunlight
and heat. Excessive heat can melt the trays. Do not store them in your
car during the warm summer months.
- Brush and rinse remaining gel from teeth after Bleaching.
- Remove tray prior to eating.
- You will have enough material to bleach both upper and
lower teeth for 1-2 weeks.
