What are dental fillings?

Dental fillings restore the function and aesthetics of teeth that have large cavities, cracks, or other issues. Dental fillings come in many forms depending on what material is needed to fill the cavity. Dental fillings can be made up of gold, silver amalgam (metal), resin composite resins (plastic), or porcelain (ceramic), among other materials. Dental composites are tooth-colored, while older dental amalgam restorations were silver in color.

What are dental composites?

Dental composites are tooth-colored materials that can be used as Dental Fillings that bond to the structure of a tooth and provide a natural look for dental restorations. dental restorations may include dental crowns, dental bridges, or denture repair. More frequent dental cleaning appointments can help extend the life of your dental restoration(s).

What is Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a teeth bleaching procedure to make teeth appear lighter in color, and it is most commonly used on teeth that are stained yellow or brown.

Most teeth-bleaching procedures utilize hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide as the active bleaching agent. Teeth become discolored due to external factors like

  • aging
  • smoking
  • tea
  • coffee
  • cola drinks
  • red wine
  • tobacco products
  • certain medications such as tetracycline and fluorosis

External factors are not the only cause of teeth discoloration. Some people are born with teeth that are naturally yellow or brown. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure because it can improve the appearance of teeth by lightening their color.

What to Expect

White teeth have been shown to make people more attractive, and whitening techniques are becoming increasingly popular. You need professional help from someone who knows what they’re doing to get the best results! Your smile will be lightened several shades in just two visits while also cleaning all of that plaque buildup off your teeth.

It’s important first to understand the difference between teeth whitening and teeth bleaching.

To whiten your teeth, your dentist will use a procedure to remove stains on the outer layer of your tooth enamel or polish away thin spots so that it looks evenly white. This is known as tooth polishing, and it doesn’t do anything about the deeper layers of tooth enamel which can yellow as time goes on. While some people think they’ve had their teeth whitened by just using unique products at home, this isn’t true because those products can only penetrate the thin surface layers of dentin below the enamel.

Bleaching teeth is a separate teeth whitening process that penetrates the teeth enamel and removes the natural yellow color present in teeth. Bleaching is a more aggressive approach that can cause teeth to become more sensitive. Therefore, it’s important to consult with your dentist before undergoing any teeth bleaching procedure.

Your dentist may offer two types of bleaching agents: hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful bleach and can quickly lighten teeth. Carbamide peroxide is not as strong as hydrogen peroxide, but it takes longer to work.

Most people experience some level of tooth sensitivity after bleaching their teeth, but this usually goes away within a few days. If you experience tooth sensitivity that lasts more than a few days, consult your dentist.

Some people also experience temporary teeth whitening results immediately after their teeth are bleached. These results usually last for about six months. In addition, teens may become more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures during this time.

One of the benefits of teeth whitening is that it can improve the appearance of teeth that are stained from certain foods or drinks. It can also help lighten teeth that have become darker because of age or tobacco use.

Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution, and teeth may become stained again. However, to maintain teeth whitening results, it’s essential to avoid foods and drinks that can stain teeth and to brush and floss regularly.
