2 Ways to Brighten Your Teeth
There are basically two procedures that can be followed to achieve your desired color of teeth. The two teeth whitening process include vital whitening and non-vital whitening.
The vital whitening process is basically the application of hydrogen peroxide directly on your teeth. This process can easily be followed up at a clinic or at home. The reason why your dentist does a better job at your teeth whitening treatment is because he/she has access to concentrated chemicals.
While the ones you receive in your whitening kits or use during DIY’s is a weaker chemical. The reason why you are provided with weaker chemicals is because in any case if a professional is not handling it, you might not end up hurting yourself.
The process requires a lot of time. You need at least 3 appointments to do get done with your job but it all depends on how bad your discoloration is. The darker the marks on your teeth, the more time it will take to get rid of them.
If you are following the process back home, please make sure you do not add anything extremely dangerous to your mouth. Consult your dentist before taking any major step.
The non-vital whitening process does not involve treatment of the surface of your teeth. It is a treatment for those teeth that are of different color due to root canal or any other reasons. In such cases, the dentists tend to fill such teeth with a certain amount of product and cover it with a temporary crowning for several days.
The crowning is later removed and the tooth is cleaned and the process may be repeated for a better result. Once the process is complete, you may never require it again after the permanent filling.
