Stains on teeth can be classified in one of two ways:
- Extrinsic:Extrinsic stains appear on the surface of your teeth.
- Intrinsic:Intrinsic stains live between the micro cracks in your enamel and deep within your dentin (thelayer of your tooth underneath your enamel). Whitening toothpastes and mouth rinses may beable to remove some of the extrinsic stains on your teeth
Is teeth whitening for everyone?
Teeth whitening is a safe, comfortable way to get a bright, white smile. Results and treatment time may vary depending on the level of stains and whiteness desired (Crowns, bridges, fillings, and veneers will not whiten). We recommend visiting us for a per-whitening consultation with Dr. Mansi Gupta, so that we can help you choose the professional option that best fits your treatment.
How long do teeth whitening results last?
Teeth whitening results are very stable; leaving you with a stunning smile long after
treatment is over. However, there are a few factors that can make teeth lose their lustre.
Things like genetics, diet, age, some medications (like tetracycline), and certain habits (like smoking, chewing tobacco) may affect the length of your whitening results.
Fortunately, touch-up treatments are quick and easy, helping you get that bright, white smile.
Will teeth whitening cause tooth sensitivity?
Tooth sensitivity is a relatively common side effect of teeth whitening. If sensitivity occurs, it is often temporary and will go away once you’ve completed the whitening process. Good quality whitening products include desensitizing ingredients like potassium nitrate and fluoride to help reduce sensitivity and provide additional comfort.
How much Time will it take?
Only after a consultation at Orlin dental clinic, we can provide timeframe for the process
depending upon the stain and the process therafter.
