Teeth bleaching (whitening)

To whiten the natural tooth shade, bleaching is suggested. At a dental clinic, bleaching is usually a one hour appointment in which hydrogen peroxide is used, and might be completed by car amide peroxide. Generally, tooth whitening is successful in at least 90 percent of patients.

Usually yellow-colored teeth respond well to whitening, while brownish-colored teeth don’t respond as well. Gray stains caused by smoking, taking tetracycline or fluorosis (ingestion of too much fluoride) most likely will not be dramatically changed by tooth whitening.

The result of tooth whitening varies for different individuals. Tooth whitening may not enhance your smile if you’ve had tooth-colored fillings or crowns placed in your front teeth. The whitener will not affect the color of these materials and they will not match your newly whitened smile. In these cases, you may want to investigate other options, such as porcelain veneers or new restorations. After bleaching you have to be considerate about having colorful foods or drinks, especially during the first 48 hours. It should be maintained by regular care and be continued by home bleaching. Depending on your ideal tooth color you might consider a second appointment for in-office bleaching.
