Teeth Whitening / Bleaching
Teeth may be darkened by a buildup of surface stains (extrinsic staining), which hides the natural tooth color; or the tooth itself may discolor (intrinsic staining). Some of the common causes of teeth staining include plaque, tobbaco, colored liquids like sports drinks, cola, coffee, tea, and red wine etc.

Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth.

“Throughout an average person's life, it can be normal for teeth to become discolored or stained. Even with proper hygiene and oral care! Many people are interested in brightening their smile with professionally supervised tooth whitening treatments. This can help turn back the clock on aging. ”, says Dr. Abhishek Gupta, Chief Dentist at Gupta Dental & Eye Care, Wanowrie, Pune.
Bleaching will lighten teeth in 90% of the cases. Teeth that are yellow are the easiest to lighten. Teeth with dark brown teeth egg .tetracycline stains are very difficult to bleach. Sometimes porcelain veneers are required as well. Also discolored fillings and crowns cannot be bleached. They can be replaced after teeth bleaching.
At Gupta Dental & Eye Care (Wanowrie, Pune), there are 2 main methods of tooth whitening.
One system involves constructing custom made bleaching stents to hold the bleaching agent in the correct position against your teeth. This system involves wearing the stents for one to three hours per day for up to two weeks. As it is self-administered sensitivity and amount of shade change can be controlled.
The second technique is used specifically for the situation of a “dead” tooth that has changed color. Bleach can be placed internally to dramatically whiten and brighten the single crown.
