In-office Tooth whitening treatment in Delhi, India
Before the treatment, the Cosmetic and smile designing Dentist, will examine the patient: taking a health and dental history (including allergies and sensitivities).
Observe hard and soft tissues, placement and conditions of restorations, and sometimes dental x-rays are needed to determine the nature and depth of possible irregularities. If this is not completed prior to the whitening agents being applied to the tooth surface, excessive sensitivity and consequences may occur.
The whitening shade guides are used to measure tooth colour. These shades determine the effectiveness of the whitening procedure, which may vary from two to seven shades.
These shades may be reached after a single in office appointment, or may take longer depending on the individual. The effects of bleaching can last for several months, but may vary depending on the lifestyle of the patient.
Consuming tooth staining foods or drinks that have a strong colour may compromise effectiveness of the treatment. These include food and drinks containing tannins such as; coffee/tea, red wines, curry etc.
Power or light-accelerated bleaching, uses light energy which is intended to accelerate the process of bleaching in a dental office.
The ideal source of energy should be high energy to excite the peroxide molecules without overheating the pulp of the tooth.
