Frequently Asked Questions about Cleburne Tooth Whitening
How Does Bleaching Work?
The whitening process is possible due to carbide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, to freely pass through the enamel and dentin and to permeate all parts of the tooth. These peroxides breakdown into oxygen radicals, which migrate between the enamel prisms, breaking down any colored molecules that result in tooth discoloration without harming the structure of the tooth.
How Long Does Bleaching Last?
If the patient’s nutrition and lifestyle habits are poor, the procedure may need to be redone periodically. Otherwise, with a healthy nutrition and oral habit, the bleaching will last quite long. Anything that will stain a white t-shirt can also stain your teeth. Frequent exposure to staining elements such as coffee, tea, red wine and tomato sauce can increase the need for dental whitening.
Will Bleaching Cause Tooth Sensitivity?
Yes, it is a common side effect of bleaching. If sensitivity occurs, it disappears after the completion of bleaching. Dr. Sater offers a pre and post-whitening protocol that helps to decrease the occurrence of tooth sensitivity.
Will Bleaching Weaken the Enamel?
No. The enamel maintains its proper structure and function.
