Tooth whitening is a popular procedure, and with the festive season upon us, many people are looking to have their teeth whitened ahead of the festivities. If you have been considering having your teeth whitened, but would like more information, keep reading. In our latest post, we discuss the ever popular cosmetic dental treatment in more detail.
As the name suggests, teeth whitening is the process of making your teeth appear several shades whiter. One method of tooth whitening involved the use of a tray and may be carried out at home.
Who Can Carry Out Teeth Whitening?
In previous years, some beauty salons have carried out tooth whitening illegally. However, this procedure is a form of dentistry and could harm your oral health if not carried out by a professional. Only a regulated dental professional is legally allowed to carry out teeth whitening and will provide you with a relevant treatment plan to suit your requirements and budget.
One of the most common methods of tooth whitening uses a tray and solution to whiten the teeth at home. During this treatment, impressions will be taken of your mouth so that a suitable tray may be made. Using a tray that has been moulded to your mouth is highly important as it prevents the solution from reaching other areas of the mouth, such as the gums.
You will be advised how long you should use the gel for and the duration you should keep the gel on your teeth for.
Another type of teeth whitening is performed in the dentist’s chair. A solution will be applied to your teeth and a light or laser is shined onto the teeth to activate the whitening process.
