Tooth Whitening ( Bleaching )

Our teeth with age tend to discolour or become yellowish due to habits as drinking coffee, tea, alcohol, smoking etc. They also get stained from high level of fluoride in water in some places.

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth Whitening is actually a mild bleaching process that restores stained or discolored teeth to a healthy, natural color. Don't be misled by unproven and ineffective over-the-counter whitening solutions. Our office uses an advanced procedure that is only available from your dentist.

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

Teeth become discolored for different reasons:

  • Frequently drinking coffee, tea, or colas.
  • Some antibiotics may darken developing teeth in children.
  • Aging - The dentin underneath the enamel of a tooth gradually darkens with age.
  • Use of tobacco products.
  • Accidents - If a tooth has been traumatized, sometimes the nerve will gradually "die," and the tooth becomes dark.
  • After Root Canal Therapy, a tooth will generally darken.

Is Whitening Safe?

Whitening is very safe. We use a product that has been proven safe when used under the direction of a dentist.

Is Whitening For Me?

Dr. Nilesh will evaluate your teeth and smile to determine whether whitening is right for you. In some cases a different cosmetic procedure may better meet your expectations, but whitening is a safe, fast and easy process that is effective for almost everyone!

All these stains can be removed and the yellowish hue can be whitened to a great degree by a procedure called bleaching.

At our clinic we do a combination of 2 systems.
1) In office bleaching system which lasts for about 1 hour.
2) Take home bleaching system with bleaching trays and bleaching material to be applied at night.

A combination of the systems is recommended only after clinical evaluation of the oral hygenic condition of the patient. also the patient can select any procedure. the combination of the systems is safe & effective in most cases.
