Stained teeth can harm the self-confidence of even a highly confident person. This dental problem is not a very rare one and can be cured with whitening-agents that are readily available in the market. There are several bleaching agents like toothpastes, gels, strips that are prescribed by dentists for the purpose. However most of the time, the whitening obtained is not deep and a yellowish tint remains.

The most effective whitening agent as of now is carbamide peroxide. This has been found to be very effective and is widely used in toothpastes and gels. This chemical works very fast and after approximately five applications the result is visible. Our daily food habit includes several items that stain our teeth. Strong liquids like tea and coffee stain our teeth. Similarly people with the habit of smoking can develop a yellowish tinge on their teeth. Carbamide peroxide is effective in removing stains that are caused by smoking and intake of strong liquids. It has been noticed that its bleaching effect is almost of permanent nature.

There are several homemade bleaching agents. People can find information about them very easily on the web. The instructions are also provided for free. But it is always a good idea to visit a dental clinic for this purpose rather than spending long hours on such unsatisfactory whitening chemicals at home.

Modern dentistry employs numerous technologies for teeth whitening. Laser technology is the latest one which can do deep bleaching quickly and efficiently. A modern clinic must have the tools necessary for laser dentistry. This technique removes stains deeply and can be used by people having highly sensitive teeth. This bleaching process takes just a single session and the result is instantly visible. This makes the procedure convenient for patients as they don’t have to spend much time at a dental clinic. Moreover, the impact of laser technology is long lasting compared to any other bleaching techniques and is also painless.

Procedure of laser technology

In this process the patient is made to lie on a chair.  Tender areas like lips and gums are ensured protection prior to the whitening process. For this purpose a rubber dam is used to guard the gums. After a preliminary cleaning, a special chemical is smeared over the teeth. Then the laser light is focused to activate the chemical. It penetrates deep inside to remove the stain completely.
