Dr Shwetha’s Clinic
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure that is used to improve the appearance of the teeth by removing stains and discoloration. There are several different teeth whitening options available, including in-office professional treatments and at-home kits.
In-office professional teeth whitening is typically the most effective and quickest way to whiten the teeth. During the procedure, our dental professional will apply a special whitening gel to the teeth and use a special light to activate the gel and accelerate the whitening process. The procedure typically takes about an hour to complete, and the results can be dramatic, with some patients seeing a significant improvement in the colour of their teeth after just one treatment.
At-home teeth whitening kits are another option for whitening the teeth. These kits typically include a whitening gel and a mouth tray that is worn over the teeth for a prescribed amount of time. The results of at-home teeth whitening can vary, and it may take several treatments to achieve the desired level of whitening.
It is important to note that teeth whitening is not a permanent solution for discoloured teeth. The teeth may become discoloured again over time due to normal wear, staining from food and drink, or other factors. To maintain the results of a teeth whitening treatment, it is important to practice good oral hygiene and avoid habits that can contribute to staining, such as smoking or excessive consumption of staining foods and drinks.
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the teeth and boost self-confidence. If you are interested in teeth whitening, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr Shwetha’s dental clinic at IRIS Diagnostics to discuss your options and determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs.
