Can bleaching help remove stains on teeth?
Q: I am a 27 year old male and I want to bleach my teeth. Please tell me in detail about its pros and cons and side effects.
A:Bleaching is quite a popular procedure for removing extrinsic stains and can be done by two ways - office bleaching ie. when the dentist uses a higher concentration of bleaching gel in the clinic using special light to accomplish the bleach in a few sittings. The second is home bleaching which is done when dentists prepare a special tray on your impression models and the patient uses the gel at home over night. It takes longer to accomplish bleaching by home bleach but it is safer. The only problem with bleaching is that the teeth may become sensitive for some time after bleaching is done. Case selection is important so please do get in touch with some experienced cosmetic dentist in this regard in your town.
