How to Get a Perfect Smile with Professional Teeth Whitening? Stained and discolored teeth ruining your smile and relationships? There is good news for you. You can get rid of your stained teeth and enjoy a beautiful smile with the help of professional teeth whitening. What is Professional Teeth Whitening? Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure which involves the removal of stains from teeth by applying a potent bleaching agent. The bleaching agent, usually carbamide peroxide is quite unstable in the open air and quickly disintegrates to form hydrogen peroxide. The released hydrogen peroxide gas penetrates beneath the enamel layer of the tooth and dissolves stains and discoloration from the surface of teeth. Who can Benefit from Professional Teeth Whitening? you should consider teeth whitening if you have the following cosmetic dental problems: • Coffee stains • Tea stains • Tobacco stains • Red wine stains • Teeth stains caused due heavily colored foods It must be mentioned here that stains that develop on teeth during the developmental stages of enamel and dentine cannot be removed through professional teeth whitening. Instead, they need to be cosmetically managed with the help of veneers and crowns. How is Professional Teeth Whitening Performed? Professional teeth whitening involves the following steps: • Gum Protection – your dentist will first protect your gums by applying a protective coating such as cocoa butter, Vaseline or vitamin E. This is done to prevent accidental bleaching of the gums.

The more the protection, the better they will ensure your comfort. • Application of Bleaching Agent – your dentist will pour the bleaching agent inside specially designed custom trays which are then placed inside the oral cavity for about 30 minutes. The polymerization of the bleaching agent is activated with the help of a visible light source. When the trays are removed, whitening effect on the teeth is observed. If required, multiple sittings for teeth whitening may also be scheduled. Again, with products such as ZOOM, they will apply the bleach directly on your teeth and then place the light to activate it. Many clinics will make customized take home trays that you can use to retouch if needed after a few months. How white will my teeth get? So, here is the thing. Everyone is born with a shade of white.

Since they are prepared from thermoplastic materials, they are boiled and then placed inside the mouth to shape them according to the contour of the teeth.
