There are a variety of ways that teeth can incur stain including food, beverages, medication, smoking and genetics. Small cracks in teeth can also trap stain beneath the enamel. Luckily, most surface stains can be removed by using tooth bleaching. Additionally, deeper stains can be removed by cleaning out the stain and filling the area with composite.
Teeth whitening is used to fix tooth discoloration and give you a better cosmetic appearance. Oleynik Dental uses a custom tray whitening system. This system is completed in two visits. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we’ll craft you custom whitening trays. After this is completed, you will return for a follow up appointment to receive the trays and learn how to properly use them. One drop of hydrogen peroxide gel is placed into each tooth within the trays. Then, the whitening trays are placed in the mouth for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove the trays and rinse with cold water. Repeat this procedure each day until the desired shade is reached.
