Dentist in Richmond Virginia Understanding The 2 Types of Teeth Whitening

  1. 1. Understanding The 2 Types Of Teeth Whitening
  2. 2. http://www.DrMohanty.com The oral care product section in local drug stores has become so crowded with so many teeth whitening products, it’s hard for the average consumer to know what the different products do in relation to one another.
  3. 3. http://www.DrMohanty.com To clear the confusion, it’s important to understand the 2 types of teeth whitening and the relevant products.
  4. 4. http://www.DrMohanty.com 1. Bleaching Treatment
  5. 5. http://www.DrMohanty.com Bleaching is one way of whitening your teeth and as its name suggests involves changing the color of your tooth (more specifically your tooth enamel).
  6. 6. http://www.DrMohanty.com Bleaching is a more intense form of teeth whitening because it deals with both the outer stains on the surface of your teeth and also the deeper stains below the surface.
  7. 7. http://www.DrMohanty.com With bleaching, you can whiten your teeth by several shades of white depending on the type of product.
  8. 8. http://www.DrMohanty.com The main bleaching ingredient in products is known as carbamide peroxide and various products have different concentrations of it.
  9. 9. http://www.DrMohanty.com There are 2 ways to go about bleaching your teeth:
  10. 10. http://www.DrMohanty.com 1. Visiting your dentist for a professional in-office bleaching treatment.
  11. 11. http://www.DrMohanty.com Dentists use stronger bleach, are able to shield your gums and oral cavity for protection and use laser and light to help speed things along.
  12. 12. http://www.DrMohanty.com Your teeth can be whitened by a dentist in as little as 30 minutes to 1 hour and get your teeth whiter by 7-12 shades.
  13. 13. http://www.DrMohanty.com If you still want to bleach your teeth at home, your dentist can prepare a home kit for you that contains your custom tooth mold and less- potent peroxide bleach and also instruct you on how to apply the treatment.
  14. 14. http://www.DrMohanty.com 2. You can also bleach using over-thecounter home treatment kits that are readily available in your local drug store.
  15. 15. http://www.DrMohanty.com They are usually less potent, require use over several weeks before you see any results, and lighten your teeth by 1-2 shades.
  16. 16. http://www.DrMohanty.com These products include teeth whitening strips and dental whitening trays.
  17. 17. http://www.DrMohanty.com 2. Abrasive Treatment
  18. 18. http://www.DrMohanty.com The second way to whiten your teeth apart from bleaching is to use the abrasive treatment technique.
  19. 19. http://www.DrMohanty.com This involves the use of abrasive products to remove the stains on the surface of the teeth by scrubbing them off.
  20. 20. http://www.DrMohanty.com This method works best if you have slightly yellow teeth, but if you have dark brown or grey teeth then bleaching is a better option.
  21. 21. http://www.DrMohanty.com Abrasive treatment products include electric toothbrushes and teeth whitening toothpastes.
