What Is the Requirement for teeth whitening ?
- Excessive fluoride intake can cause dental fluorosis, a condition that results in tooth discoloration and/or pitting.
- Smoking and chewing tobacco
- Drinking beverages daily like tea, coffee, Carbonated water (Sparkling Water)
- As with other factors, aging also contributes to staining of teeth because the enamel gets thinner exposing the dentin below. With age, foods and beverages come in contact with dentin and can stain teeth.
- Some medical treatments can also cause teeth staining.
Teeth whitening treatment is a process that makes your teeth whiter. The results may vary from person to person, however, due to differences in their lifestyles and the consistency with which they use the whitening product.
Teeth Whitening Treatment Procedure:
- The dentist will first take a photograph of your teeth, and then he or she will examine the progress of the treatment.
- After examining your teeth, the dentist begins by cleaning them.
- A dentist will remove the coated film on your enamel and whiten your teeth naturally.
- The whitening process begins after this. The entire process takes around 30-90 minutes depending upon the severity of the stains on teeth.
- Your dentist will first apply a white protective gel on your gums. They will then apply the whitening agent directly on your teeth. If your teeth are severely stained, ask your dentist if you’re able to continue with treatment at home in order to get the quickest results possible.
You Should Know That The effect of a teeth whitening treatment differs depending on the person. On average, people who drink tea, coffee, or tobacco or smoke will need to apply the treatment for a longer time before they see results.
Scaling is a dental procedure involving the removal of plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) on the teeth, as well as smoothing out the tooth’s roots.
Why I Need Scaling?
- The main reason behind plaque, a sticky, colourless film that perpetually forms on your teeth.
- If plaque isn’t removed on a day after day it will become a tough substance known as calculus (tartar).
- once plaque and calculus don’t seem to be removed the bacterium in plaque turn out toxins (or poisons) that may destroy the supporting tissues and bone round the teeth. because the diseases progress, the gum round the tooth becomes loose and separates off from the tooth leading to deep areas known as pockets.
- As these pockets deepen, a lot of gum tissue and bone are destroyed and therefore the teeth eventually become loose.
Dental Scaling Procedure
- A deep cleaning is divided into two parts: scaling and root planing.
- Scaling is performed by your dentist to remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) above and below the gumline.
- You will eventually need a root planing and scaling, which is a process that gets rid of the plaque on the roots of your teeth, and allows the gum tissue to reattach to them.
Care after Teeth Whitening Treatment:
- It is important to expect that you will have some pain for a day or two and some teeth sensitivity for up to a week. Your gums may also be swollen, feel tender, and bleed.
- To prevent infection and help the gum heal, your dentist may prescribe either a mouthwash or an ointment containing tetracycline. Dentists might also insert medicine directly into the pocket underneath the gum.
- Dentist will schedule another visit to see how your gums have healed and whether he/she needs to perform additional treatment. If the pockets had not entirely healed by this point, more treatment may be needed.
