Due to the increasing popularity of teeth whitening treatments, many people are seeking out information on what the benefits are and how the procedure is carried out. Teeth whitening involves bleaching your teeth to make them lighter, and can lighten the existing colour by several shades. It is a painless and quick procedure that can hugely improve your smile and confidence. Many different options of teeth whitening treatment are available and most of them are highly effective, quick and pain-free. Teeth whitening treatment is carried out by a dental professional. The most successful teeth whitening treatments incorporate the use of a light bleach suitable for use on your tooth enamel which is applied to your teeth under certain conditions. If you are looking for a treatment to whiten your teeth there are a few things you will need to consider first. Aftercare is an important part of the teeth whitening process and helps make the treatment last longer.
How is Teeth Whitening carried out?
Tooth whitening avoids the need for any drilling or anesthetics, and the whiteness of the teeth can then be controlled by the patient. The procedure of whitening teeth is usually completed in a few simple steps.
The first stage in the procedure is preparation. Your dental tooth whitening professional will ensure your teeth are clean and prepped and in some cases, they may apply an accelerating gel or liquid that is designed to make the bleach work more quickly and effectively.
The second part of the procedure is the application of the bleach itself. Your dentist or the person carrying out the treatment may do this with a mould that fits over your teeth or by painting on the bleach. They do this using a tool to separate your lips from the teeth until it dries.
What are the benefits of Teeth Whitening?
For some people, having their teeth whitened can be a life changing experience. While there are many benefits to teeth whitening for everyone, people who are self-conscious about their teeth get the added benefit of being able to smile again.
Confidence in your Smile
A lot of people shy away from smiling in photos because they hate the way that their teeth look. If you are fed up of always having to smile with your mouth closed, then you are more than likely someone who could benefit in having their teeth whitened. A simple tooth whitening treatment can give those self-conscious about their teeth a massive confidence boost and change the way they see themselves.
A standard tooth whitening treatment is carried out quickly, and a lot of people opt to have them in their lunch breaks. Having your teeth whitened is something that can be done within an hour in most cases and if the effects are not as good as you expected, you can always go back for more treatments after the initial one is done. Depending on how bad your teeth are in the beginning you could only need one short treatment to get your teeth to the desired colour.
It Doesn’t Cost Much
When teeth whitening first hit the market – they were far too expensive for many people to take advantage of them. Now teeth whitening has become more common, companies offering them have found ways to safely reduce the prices so that more and more people are able to access the treatment. Teeth whitening is no longer a costly treatment and is now in the price range of most people.
What do I have to do after I have had my Teeth Whitened?
There are some aftercare services for tooth whitening treatment. Your dentist carrying this out will talk you through the aftercare specific to the treatment you have had, but in many cases the aftercare requires taking the following steps:
– Not brushing your teeth until you have been advised that you can
– Only eating white or light coloured foods for the period of time you are advised to
– Ensuring that you report any problems or changes to your teeth, mouth and gums after the treatments
– Not drinking fizzy drinks or alcohol for a certain amount of time after the treatment
– Not smoking for a certain amount of time after the treatment
