Nowadays, having pearly white teeth is something that most people would want to have. They usually buy home whitening systems to achieve this goal.
Tooth whitening or tooth bleaching is actually available for those who wish to achieve pearly white teeth. This procedure is a simple procedure to improve your smile. But, as with other procedures, tooth bleaching is not permanent. You may have to undergo the same procedure again after a certain duration of time, especially since drinking coffee, wine or tea, as well as smoking, can cause discoloration of the teeth.
The procedure involves the fabrication of clear plastic trays customized for your teeth. The dentist will take molds of your teeth prior to the fabrication process.
On the succeeding appointment, you will try on the trays and ensure proper fit. The dentist may make necessary modifications. Depending on how stained the teeth are or how white you want the teeth to be, you will have to wear the trays and use special whitening solution for a certain time duration.
You may experience sensitive teeth during the bleaching process which will eventually subside in the long run. Care instructions will be provided afterward.
