1. External Bleaching

External bleaching is performed entirely within the dental office. This method takes about an hour from begin to end. whereas you’re seated in an operatory chair the bleaching compound is placed directly on your teeth when some preparation to shield your lips and gum tissue. A high intensity light is directed at your teeth for about half-hour. This method may also be combined with a take in bleach kit with trays depending on the dentist’s recommendation. The in-office bleaching procedure can provide a lot of immediate results.

2. Home Bleaching

Our dental practitioner at smile craft will offer you with a custom tray for at-home whitening. during this case, Our dental practitioner can offer you directions on a way to place the bleaching solution within the tray and for what length of your time. this could be a most well-liked choice if you are feeling more comfortable whitening in your house at a slower pace, however still with the guidance of our dental practitioner.

3. Internal Bleaching

Internal tooth bleaching is a completely different process that needs access inside the tooth. this sort of bleaching is completed once a particular tooth is darkened or discolored; this sometimes happens once the nerve within the tooth has died because of either infection or trauma. once this happens, a passage procedure is completed to remove the nerve from within the canal of the tooth. previous root canal therapy facilitates access to the center of the tooth (pulp chamber) where the internal bleaching material is placed. A cotton pellet is soaked within the bleaching compound and placed within the center of the tooth and lined with a temporary filling material to seal the gap.
The patient keeps this material within the tooth for roughly one week and so returns to the dental workplace to assess the results of the bleaching. This procedure usually must be continual a number of times till the requiredresult’s met.
