Methods of tooth bleaching:
Basically there are two methods for tooth bleaching, they are office bleach and take home or over-the-counter bleaching. These are explained as follows:
Office bleach is a method in which a highly concentrated oxidizing agent will be applied with in short period of time. This office bleach will give you a quick result, but you can sense the burns in soft tissues because of application of highly concentrated chemicals to your teeth.
Therefore dentists use light curved protective layer for painting gums and the tips present between the teeth. The bleaching agent used in this office bleach method is carbamide peroxide. This bleaching agent will breakdown in the mouth and form as hydrogen peroxide.
Take home or over-the-counter is the method in which usage of thin mouth guard or strip will be done to hold the low concentration of oxidizing agent. This mouth guard should be kept to your teeth for 5 to 14 days. This is the slow process but it will have less effect on the soft tissues.
Research was going on for performing tooth bleaching through light. This is the process in which tooth bleaching can be performed by using certain light rays which will make your teeth white.
The side effects that you can acquire through tooth bleaching are as follows:
- The usage of highly concentrated bleaching agents can lead to chemical burns in soft tissues.
- These bleaching agents may bleach or discolor your mucous membranes.
- If you have sensitive teeth, then the tips of your teeth can get affected by this tooth bleaching.
- Mild irritation will be produced on your teeth because of highly concentrated bleaching agents.
- Prolonged exposure to bleaching agents can damage your tooth enamel.
Bleaching is not recommended for small children and infants. You should take advice of your dentist before going to tooth bleaching because high sensitive teeth can even decay with this tooth bleaching. (Find more on dental care)
