What is Bleaching?

Dental bleaching or tooth whitening, is a common procedure in general dentistry. Tooth whitening  helps to remove stains and discoloration.


How is Bleaching Done?

Whitening toothpastes are available as well. They contain abrasives that remove stains on the enamel. They do not actually change the overall color of your teeth. The best alternative is to approach a dentist who specializes in Bleaching. A tooth bleaching is not a one-time procedure. It has to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter color.


Types of Bleaching

There are two main types of whitening or bleaching procedures, vital whitening and non-vital whitening procedure. Sometimes in house bleaching/whitening is also resorted to.


Vital Whitening

This is the most common type of tooth whitening wherein a gel-like whitening solution is applied directly to the tooth surface. This product contains some form of hydrogen peroxide.


Non-Vital Whitening

Sometimes, vital whitening may not improve the appearance of a tooth that has had root-canal treatment because the stain is coming from the inside of the tooth. In this case your dentist will place a whitening agent inside the tooth and put a temporary filling over it. The tooth will be left this way for several days. You may need this done only once, or it can be repeated until the tooth reaches the desired shade.


In House Whitening/Bleaching

Tooth whitening can be done in the dentist’s office or at home. A powerful whitening gel is applied and a specialized light or laser activates the gel which allows the bleaching to happen faster. This process usually takes 30 to 90 minutes. The treatment depends upon severity of the stains. If your teeth are badly discolored, the dentist may suggest that you continue the bleaching process for a few days or weeks at home.
