Methods of Teeth Whitening

Dr Koppikar describes Methods of Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening treatments are normally of two types; the in-office whitening and the at-home whitening, both of which give virtually the same results but at different treatment times. With In-Office Whitening, teeth can be whitened in around one hour. When starting the treatment, the dentist will first apply the whitening gel on the patient’s teeth. This whitening gel is chemically activated, and does not require a special light to activate, thus reducing the possibility of teeth sensitivity after the treatment. While the whitening gel breaks up the stains and eliminates the discoloration on the teeth, the patient can relax in … Continue reading

Dentists were using chloride of lime in 1848; subsequent attempts included sulphurous acid, pyrozone, oxalic acid, and aluminum chloride. Fast-forwarding to the 20th century, patients in Phoenix, and worldwide, now … Continue reading

Teeth consist of the root, the dentin surrounding the root, and the white enamel covering the visible part of the tooth. Enamel is hard, naturally white, and translucent. The dentin is yellowish in color … Continue reading
