The Deep Bleaching™ technique is thought to be the most effective teeth whitening process known today. Patients who previously were unable to bleach as white as they would have liked (because of bleaching resistant teeth) can now bleach significantly whiter.
There are two types of tooth discoloration so it is important that you consult a dentist and receive a full examination to get the correct advice for you. Certain foods and drinks can result in a discoloration of your teeth. The most common sources of this are tea, coffee, tobacco, red wine along with others.
These foods and drinks can result in extrinsic stains (staining of the outside layer of the tooth). This is the most commonly known form of tooth discoloration. Teeth can also become stained from within (Intrinsic staining). This occurs when pigmented materials are incorporated into the dental tissue of the tooth. Both forms can be corrected using teeth whitening techniques.
It is imperative that you consult with a dentist before deciding which form of teeth whitening to go with. Our dentists will go through a full examination to analyze the cause and method of repair of discoloration. An analysis of hard and soft tissues, a check for any sensitivities or allergies and if needed x-rays are carried out, to determine which treatment method is most suitable for you.
At Highland Dental Group our dentists can take years off your smile using the Deep Bleaching technique. It works as follows:
- Your dentist starts by taking an impression of your teeth to create a personalized bleaching tray
- The first session of Deep Bleaching conditions the teeth to absorb oxygen from the bleaching gel in your at home bleaching trays
- Bleaching tray is used at home for 14 consecutive days
- A second office visit completes the Deep Bleaching technique and adds a subsequent sealing to ensure your teeth stay white.
