Everyone wants an attractive smile but few people are willing to completely eliminate smoking, coffee, tea, wine, and other foods or drink that can cause teeth to become stained over time. Teeth whitening has become a part of routine dental care for millions of people. It is a simple way to adjust the color of a few, or all of your teeth. It’s important to note that teeth whitening is effective only when applied to natural tooth enamel. So if you have old crowns, implants, fillings, etc., it will be important to factor in the color and or shade of your restorations in order to match your natural teeth. There are many options when evaluating tooth whitening systems.
The most popular method of teeth whitening is the at-home, dentist-supervised option. During your visit to Ann Arbor cosmetic dentist, Dr. Rehemtulla for teeth whitening, she takes a mold of your teeth and creates a comfortable, customized mouth tray. The mouth tray holds a mild solution whose main ingredient is carbamide peroxide, a substance that reacts with water to release a non-toxic bleaching element (hydrogen peroxide). The mouth tray is placed inside the mouth and sits only against the teeth, thereby avoiding contact with the gums. Patients can choose either to wear the mouth tray throughout the night or for stretches that last from two to four hours. When the mouth tray is worn throughout the night, the teeth whitening treatment lasts one to two weeks. Patients with more sensitive teeth may opt for the latter approach, which lasts three to five weeks.
