What Is Dental Bleaching

Dental bleaching is a technique that uses strong oxidizing agents to lighten the color of your teeth. It is mainly used to remove the stains that are incorporated into the tooth structure, these stains are called intrinsic stains. In-office dental bleaching involves application of oxidizing agents, such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, to discolored teeth. These chemicals go inside the enamel and remove the stains by chemically breaking them up.

1. Holistic approach to aesthetics and health

White and beautiful smile is extremely important. It significantly contributes to any person’s psychological health and their self- esteem. However, in addition to looking healthy, your teeth have to actually be healthy. If you choose to get your teeth whitened at Dental Line, our dentists will thoroughly examine your teeth to ensure that no disease process that can be worsened by whitening is taking place.

2. Professional expertise and counseling

Not all stains can be whitened. Some stains are caused by unhealthy processes that happen to enamel and/or dentin such as dental fluorosis or enamel malformation. These conditions may not benefit from whitening at all. Other types of stain require a more prolonged or specialized application. These conditions may be due to the use of antibiotic tetracycline or receiving a root canal treatment in the past. Opting for an in-office whitening ensures that a dentist will assess the type of stain that you have and come up with an appropriate whitening regimen.

3. Longer lasting effects

In-office dental whitening involves application of stronger agents than are available for patient’s at home. These solutions with 35% hydrogen peroxide are more effective in providing profound whitening with longer lasting effects. They are able to diffuse further through your enamel and stay active for longer than average at home bleaching solution.

4. Safer treatment

For those who decide to get their teeth whitened in Dental Line, we can offer a safer treatment than is available at home. This option is great for people whose bite is off, or those who have crowding in lower front teeth. Having a custom tray fabricated specifically for you will ensure that no whitening paste can accidentally spill on your gums and cause damage.

5. Faster Results

Because the concentration of whitening solution is stronger, it takes less time to whiten your teeth in the dental chair. In- Office bleaching may take anywhere from 1 to 6 visits, with an average being 3 visits, while at-home bleaching requires daily application and may last for several weeks. This is due to the fact that in-office bleaching employs the use of UV light that stimulates active ingredients in whitening paste and speeds up the reaction.
