Teeth Whitening Treatment - Enhance your Overall Oral Health
7 min read

The enamel or the layer underneath- called dentin, can get discoloured or stained. There are varied reasons for intrinsic and extrinsic tooth discoloration, some of which can be controlled while some cannot.

The contributing factors of teeth staining or discoloration include intake of teeth-staining foods and beverages, smoking or chewing tobacco, high fluoride intake during childhood, dental trauma, ageing, and side effects of certain medications. Thankfully, dental stains and discolorations can be eliminated with the help of Teeth Whitening Treatment in Gurgaon performed by expert dental professionals at AK Global Dent.

What is Teeth Whitening Treatment?

Teeth whitening is a dental service to get rid of stains and discolorations on the surface of natural teeth and restore their original shade. It is a mostly widely adopted, one-visit procedure performed by a trained dental professional to help people achieve dazzling smiles. It can be a game-changer for one’s smile and general health.   

What Happens in Teeth Whitening Treatment?

Firstly, the dentist in charge of performing the procedure clicks pictures of the patient’s smile at different angles. These images are kept in the patient’s dental records to be later compared with treatment outcomes and know the progress of the treatment. They are also referred to examine every tooth and spot the stains or discolorations.

After figuring out the stains or discolorations, the dentist cleans the teeth. The coating of the tooth’s enamel with a film of food consumed or other substances is removed. The teeth whitening process starts just after cleaning is over. It lasts for 30-90 minutes, depending on how severe stains or discoloration is on the tooth surface.

The teeth whitening procedure performed at AK Global Dent, Best Dental Clinic in Gurgaon

commences with covering the gums or fleshy mouth parts with a rubber dam to safeguard them from any damage caused by dental bleaches. Next, the dentist applies a teeth whitening agent (mostly hydrogen peroxide) and illuminates the teeth with high-intensity light like LED, halogen, or UV with the help of a laser device or lamp. The use of light helps activate the dental bleach to work effectively. Afterwards, the mouth is rinsed and fluoride is applied to strengthen enamel and prevent any sensitivity of the teeth.  

For badly stained or discoloured teeth, the dental professional may suggest continuing with teeth whitening treatment for a few days at home using customised teeth whitening kits. If the patient requires at-home teeth whitening treatment by a dental professional, then an impression of the patient’s teeth is taken to build a custom-fit mouthpiece containing dental bleach such as carbamide peroxide. When the patient instals a mouthpiece in his/her mouth, the teeth whitening agent remains strongly bonded to the teeth surface. In case, there is mild to moderate staining, the patient can use teeth whitening products in the form of toothpastes, strips, and others available at the drugstore.
