When your teeth get stained, they become yellow or brown. The best way to remove this stain is to get teeth whitening done. This procedure helps in restoring teeth by imparting them a shiny white colour. There are two methods of teeth whitening. The first method involves a visit to your dentist’s office where he or she will apply high concentration peroxide gel on your teeth for about an hour. This method produces significant change to your teeth in a minimal amount of time – about an hour.
In the second method, you can buy teeth-whitening kits from your doctor and apply them at home. The gel used in these kits is low in concentration, so you need to apply it for more extended periods. All kinds of whitening procedures do not suit every discolouration. For example, yellowish tinge or brownish tinge or grayish tinge all are treated with different processes, and the dentist will be able to guide well. Another point to be noted is that the crowns or cappings are not affected in the same way as natural teeth. This needs to be kept in mind if they are in the front teeth. Not everyone is eligible to get the teeth whitened by a dentist as the oral health needs to be analyzed by the dentist first.
