    Tooth darkening or discoloration can be due to factors such as aging, medication or che-
    micals or staining caused due to the intake of fluids, such as cola, tea, coffee or wine;     tobacco; cigarette smoking. The color also depends on the condition of the teeth dental
    health and lifestyle.

    Tooth whitening will not correct certain for of discoloration, incase of which the dentist
    may recommend Veneer treatment however whitening can be an ideal way of restoring a
    healthy appearance to the teeth and in some cases will improve the whitening to go beyond
    your natural tooth color.

    With the latest improvement in technology your tooth can get that sparkling effect in as
    less as 16 minutes for gel to teeth contact, 60 minutes for ordinary non laser system or
    do it at home over a period of time treatments respectively.


    1. Laser tooth whitening
   A patient chooses to have his or her teeth whitened in a dentist's office, the dentist  applies      a gum gel to protect the soft tissues of the mouth, then applies a bleaching agent to   the      teeth then activate the gel with laser. It takes just one hour for the laser whitening      treatment to be completed 

    Laser - The laser wavelength output is synchronized to the proprietary whitening gel, which     increases efficiency and minimizes the amount of energy required to produce maximum     whitening. This results in shortened treatment time and increases effectiveness while     eliminating the heating of teeth that can result in post-operative sensitivity too.

    Non Laser - Ordinary non-laser whitening systems require longer treatment times and higher     energy output because of their inefficiencies. Non-laser whitening devices use just a tiny     percentage of the polychromatic light's energy. The rest of the energy is wasted as heat and     light, which is absorbed by the teeth and adjacent tissues, which often results in intra-
    operative and post-operative sensitivity.
    2. Home whitening system
  You can do tooth whitening on your own at home by purchasing from a range of approved bleaching solutions that we offer. Most of
    the bleaches come in gel form that can be applied by yourself with the help of a mouthgaurd overnight or twice a day depending on
    schedule and safe recommendation we give you.
    Post care instructions after tooth whitening
    After treatment ,tooth color will continue to lighter for about 1week.
    For the best result,do not smoke,drink tea or coffee or red wine within the first 48 hours.
    Some people may experience tooth sensitivity which can be subsided by mild analgesic and fluoride gel.
    Some people may notice a gradual darkening of their teeth as time pass.This will depend on personal habits and diet such as smoking     drink coffee,tea or red wine etc. Proper oral hygiene care  can generally avoid diminished whitening result.

    While the laser tooth whitening is by far the fastest most effective means <both in terms of results and speed> for most people to     whitening their teeth especially for people with dark grey or dark brown color teeth
     These option are :
     1.Porcelain/Composite veneers
     2.porcelain crown
     3.combination with Gel and tray system

    Considerations to Laser Teeth Whitening
    Smoking should be stopped before teeth are bleached. Smoking can cause tissue damage on teeth and may defeat the effect of whitening.     The best candidates for whitening are those with stains caused by coffee, tobacco or aging.

    Extensive composite and porcelain restorations - If you have pre-existing cosmetic restoration (bonding, porcelain crowns, bridge,     veneers or fillings ) they will not be bleached and you may need to replace them in order to match your new color shade.

    Pre-existing sensitive teeth and allergies - Individuals with sensitive teeth and gums, receding gums and/or defective restorations     should consult with their dentist prior to using a tooth whitening system. Anyone allergic to peroxide (the whitening agent) should not use     a bleaching product. 2/3 of these people will experience some sensitivity for 1-4 days. This is usually reversible upon termination of     bleaching.  

Severe gray/blue banded tetracycline staining - Guarded prognosis required. Stains in the gray family (such as from tetracycline) can be     harder to remove, if not impossible. These stains can take up to six months or longer to whiten. Whitening may only reduce amounts of     masking'.

    Discoloration in gingival third or exposed yellow - Guarded prognosis for whitening required.

    Pregnant or lactating women and young children - No know adverse effects but avoid use as a precautionary measure.

    Translucent teeth - May appear darker after bleaching.

    Temporomandibular Joint Disorders - May want to consider bleaching one arch and monitor comfort before proceeding with the other

    Gum disease, worn enamel, cavities, and exposed roots - Cavities and gum diseases need to be treated before undergoing any     whitening procedure.

    Noncompliance or unrealistic expectation - The degree of whiteness is different from one individual to another, the degree of shade     change obtainable is dependent on each person's reaction. Certain people react well while others may not be as responsive
