Over the past two decades, according to the American Dental Association, dental bleaching has become one of the dental treatments most commonly performed to improve aesthetics, and allows a quick and easy way to improve the color of your teeth.
Dental bleaching removes internal and external pigmentation of the enamel and the underlying tooth layer, dentin, thus making teeth whiter.
The bleaching gels do not cause changes in the structure of the teeth, do not affect the status of pre-existing dental restorations and have no other type of risks or side effects.
Before bleaching your teeth you should perform a clinical evaluation with your Dentist or Oral Hygienist to ensure a good oral health of your teeth and gums, so you can start the treatment.
Dental bleaching with trays
One of the possible techniques for bleach your teeth is the use of trays, which act as reservoirs for the bleaching agent, whose active ingredient is Hydrogen Peroxide or Carbamide Peroxide. These trays are used during a predetermined time according to a frequency and duration determined by the Dentist or Oral Hygienist.
The final result relates to the type of pigment, age of the patient and the concentration of the bleaching agent. Although this type of dental treatment can be done at home, it is advisable to have an oral health professional to supervise it and to perform a clinical evaluation of the teeth and soft tissues of the mouth.
After the clinical evaluation is done, your Dentist or Oral Hygienist will make you a mold, and the bleaching trays will be performed.
