Professional bleaching is the standard method of teeth whitening. First, your dentist will examine your teeth and decide if your teeth are suitable for this treatment. As part of protecting the gum, they apply a rubber shield or a gel on your gums. The whitening product is then applied to your teeth, using a specially made tray which fits into your mouth like a mouthguard.
Teeth whitening effect lasts up to three years. However, it varies from person to person. The result will not last long if you smoke, eat, or drink products that stain your teeth. After this treatment, some people's teeth become more sensitive to cold foods. Similarly, Others may have discomfort in the gums, a sore throat or white patches on the gum line. However, these symptoms are usually temporary and disappear within a few days of the treatment. Tooth whitening treatment can only be applied to natural teeth. It will not work on false teeth like dentures, veneers, and crowns.
After veneers are cemented to your teeth, you can eat and normally drink. The dentist will schedule a follow-up appointment for you to check your gum health and bite. It is essential to have regular dental checkups with your dentist every six months.
