Teeth whitening or bleaching can be performed for vital and non-vital teeth. Techniques vary and not every individual is eligible for teeth whitening . An exam with your dentist is important before bleaching to determine what is the best technique for bleaching and weather it will be effective or not.
Non-vital for eg root canal treated ones are usually whitened through medications applied inside the teeth.
Vital teeth bleaching can be performed in the dental practice or at home. In the dental practice is faster and effective.
At home bleaching usually requires multiple sessions .
How Teeth whitening works
All teeth whitening either in chair, or at home, works with the same principle: A Bleaching agent is added to the teeth that removes particles which result in discolouration and staining.
The primary difference between the different methods are :
- The kind of bleaching agent used
- How strong the bleaching agent is
- How the bleaching agent is activated.
- Different formulations can give roughly the same results. One of the biggest
considerations for patient is how sensitive their own teeth are. Some formulations are designed for use with people who have more sensitive teeth, while others would be incredibly uncomfortable to use on sensitive teeth.
