Steps we follow for Teeth Whitening Procedure:
Pre-whitening : Pre-whitening is the first part of the tooth whitening process. Teeth are prepared for being whitened first. Then the dentist will get an idea about how much bleaching solution has to be used to lighten your teeth to the desired shade.
Drying your mouth:During the whitening procedure, to keep your mouth dry will use a gauze pad. It is to hold an absorbent retraction over your tongue and cheeks while the whitening solution is administered.
Coating : Our dentist will then start wiping any plaque off your teeth with a dental polisher. They will then coat your teeth with the whitening solution and leave it there for up to half an hour, concentrating on coating the front of your teeth. Once this is done, the dentist will brush your teeth to remove any excess solution, ready for you to leave.
Cleaning : The dentist will then open your mouth and examine your teeth thoroughly. It is to determine the effectiveness of the bleaching process. If the dentist then feels that you need additional treatment, they will rinse your mouth with a prescribed mouthwash. It eliminates any residual bleaching solution that may have remained on your teeth after the treatment.
Fluoride treatment : After your teeth have been whitened, most dentists will opt to perform a fluoride treatment. This helps keep stains away from your teeth and keeps away bacteria.
While there are multiple ways to whiten your teeth at home using products you can purchase over the counter, nothing will result like a teeth whitening session at your dentist. Talk to your dentist to agree on what type of teeth whitening treatment best suits you.
