Tooth whitening results expectations after teeth whitening procedure at Delhi dental center:
6 to 8 shade whitening can be achieved by our laser tooth whitening procedure in just one visit and one hour, but see there is no definite way to predict how light color the tooth will be after whitening because the results depends on the texture of your tooth enamel. Patients with yellow or brown teeth tend to whiten faster and more fully than people having reddish or grayish brown teeth. Teeth that have become brown due to flourosis will need more sittings to get whiter. Tooth staining due to antibiotics or injury too take longer sittings to get whiter.
People having tooth colored fillings, veneers, dental bonding and porcelain dental crowns will not whiten at all or not as even as your natural teeth will whiten. You may have to get your older dental fillings of your front teeth replaced if they are on the front side as they will not whiten as your tooth structure will after whitening. Please be sure to discus all these before whitening with us.
