Teeth Whitening should not be performed more than every six months. If you are not happy with the results, wait. Some teeth require several treatments before you gain the whitening you desire. Rushing the process is dangerous.
Usually, teeth whitening takes between a half an hour to a full hour. Sometimes the process might take upwards of 90 minutes. The process may need to be repeated over an additional four to six weeks.
Some patients are happy with the results for a full decade. For others, the effects last only a year. Most people enjoy a brighter smile for two to five years.
Any medical procedure on a minor requires parental approval, including teeth whitening. If you need Dr. G to talk with your parents about the risks involved, she will.
The teeth whitening experience has been studied for a while and there have been no ill effects discovered. The biggest problem associated with teeth whitening is the misuse of home bleaching kits. It is best to have a dentist perform the procedure. It takes about an hour and the results are good.
Not always, no. Teeth Whitening is usually the first step in the procedure of treating tetracycline stained teeth. The process may work, or not. If teeth whitening works to reduce the tetracycline staining, then you might avoid more costly procedures. The problem with tetracycline is that the stain is often deep and it is less of a stain than a changing of the enamel from off-white to gray. Usually, people who have tetracycline stained teeth have veneers placed so that the teeth are white. There is an emerging technology that uses a dental laser to remove tetracycline staining.
