What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is one of the transformative procedures in dentistry that can lighten the color of teeth and remove stains. Teeth whitening can be performed at home as well as in the office. This procedure is completed using peroxide-based bleaching agents. Usually, the tougher the solution and the longer you keep it on your teeth, the whiter your teeth become.

Types of Teeth Stains

Before deciding the type of teeth whitening option the dental teeth at Genesis Dentistry will assess your teeth and the type of stains you have. There are two types of stains If you have both intrinsic and extrinsic staining then our dental experts will choose a whitening method that will deal with both types.

These are types of stains that are under tooth enamel, these stains are sometimes present even before the teeth erupt from your gums when you’re a kid. Another reason for having these stains is the excessive use of antibiotics, excessive fluoride exposure

These stains can result from antibiotic use and high levels of fluoride exposure, and sometimes it can be genetic.

Zoom Teeth Whitening treatment

  • Firstly, the dentists at Genesis Dentistry will assess the condition of the teeth and compare the shade of the teeth before starting the teeth-whitening process. The dental expert then will remove the tartar. After completion of scaling the experts will polish the teeth, or fill any cavity before application of the teeth-whitening gel.
  • In the next step the oral surgeon will apply the cheek, tongue, lips, and gum barrier, as well as a protective gel on the surrounding tissues. This barrier will prevent the whitening gel from contacting the gum tissues inside the mouth. After that, a special blue light will be applied on the barrier.
  • After that the dentist will use a blow-dry tool to dry the teeth. When the teeth are dried then teeth whitening gel is applied on the teeth. Our dentists use advanced dental technology during the whitening procedure. The gel will penetrate through the enamel layer to eradicate stains and turn dull-colored dentin into a whiter shade of teeth.
  • The dentist will then apply the teeth-whitening gel on the prepared teeth. The blue light will be applied for 3–4 rounds. If you feel uncomfortable during the teeth whitening procedure then you can always inform our skilled dental team. Remember that the teeth-whitening process takes about 45 minutes to an hour, it actually depends on the severity of the teeth discolouration. When the teeth whitening procedure finishes our dentists will apply a special fluoride coating to reduce tooth sensitivity.

Finally, the dentist will then assess the outcome of the procedure by comparing before and after teeth whitening. Tada!! The patients leave the clinic with brighter teeth.
