Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure sought by patients looking to improve the aesthetic appearance of their teeth. This treatment is suitable for patients with various types of tooth discoloration caused by factors such as aging, internal tooth injuries, certain health conditions, or the use of specific medications. Intrinsic stains often result in a yellow or brownish tint and may require professional whitening treatments for significant improvement.
External factors like the consumption of staining foods and beverages (such as coffee, tea, red wine, and certain fruits), tobacco use, and poor oral hygiene are generally easier to address and can often be treated with both professional and over-the-counter whitening products.
Professional teeth whitening, whether performed in a dental office or supervised at home, use higher concentrations of peroxide bleaching agents compared to over-the-counter products. These treatments can provide noticeable results. In-office procedures may involve the application of a bleaching agent followed by the use of light to activate the whitening procedure. It's recommended to consult with a dentist before undergoing any whitening treatment, especially for individuals with dental restorations, receding gums, or a history of tooth sensitivity.
