Bleaching as the name suggests is the process of brightening teeth or whitening teeth using a bleaching gel.

With age or with excessive usage of alcohol, nicotine, red-colored liquids results in the darkening of our naturally white teeth and this is where dental bleaching comes into the picture.

Bleaching teeth is only effective in the case of natural teeth and does not work on crowns, implants, dentures, bonded teeth, etc. the process of teeth whitening is conducted using a bleaching gel which has active oxygen.

This component dissolves the coloring agents present on the surface of the teeth and results in the whitening of the teeth.

As long as sensitivity and/or irritation are tolerable or negligible, you may whiten until you achieve the desired whiteness.

Please note prolonged use of whiting/bleaching may have adverse effects on teeth.  It is always best to consult with your dentist.
