Teeth Whitening

Teeth cleaning and scaling is a basic routine dental procedure in which the dentist removes deposits / tar / plaque / calculus accumulated on your teeth due to improper brushing or crowded teeth. Cleaning teeth, also called scaling, is a painless procedure in which the dentist uses a scalar machine that works using vibration and water to remove stains or deposits on the teeth. Patients may experience sensitivity during the procedure but it is nominal and does not last long.

What is Teeth Whitening?

This is one way to lighten teeth by using chemical agents that break down stains that produce chromosomes on the surface of the teeth. It is also called bleaching because it is done by bleaching agents such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.

Tooth bleaching makes tooth whitening teeth lighter and helps remove stains and color. Whitening is not a one time process. If you want to keep the color bright, it needs to be repeated from time to time.

Types of Teeth Whitening

1. Extrinsic stains –  Extrinsic stains are those that are visible at the top of teeth due to exposure to dark-colored drinks or tobacco products and also from wear and wear and. The superficial stains of extrinsic origin are not significant and can be removed by brushing and prophylactic cleaning.

2. Stains that are intrinsic – These are those that develop on the inside of teeth. Stains that are intrinsic result from the effects of aging, trauma exposure to minerals (like tetracycline) during the process of tooth formation, or the excessive intake of fluoride.
