Teeth Whitening

People are increasingly becoming more concerned about their facial looks while they talk and smile. We are becoming more and more beauty conscious. More emphasis is placed upon esthetics vs functionality. The modalities and requirements of dental treatment planning are changing as our society progresses. People want to show off whiter teeth when they smile. So teeth whitening procedures are getting popular day by day. The evolution of cosmetic dentistry is quite rapid and progressive which may lead to the development of a whole new academic discipline within the dental sciences in near future. With age, people complain of darkening of their teeth due to tooth wear and dentine exposure as a result of enamel thinning. Extrinsic and intrinsic staining occurs with the use of colored drinks, coffee, tea, medications for certain diseases and iron supplements especially in women. In the past, it was considered that certain intrinsic stains such as tetracycline stains cannot be removed with teeth whitening procedures but with recent advancements in the armamentarium, materials and techniques of teeth whitening have made it quite possible to achieve satisfactory results within acceptable treatment duration.

Dr. Sandhya Anantuni and her dental care staff at Anantuni Family Dental in Chandler Arizona are well-equipped with the state of the art teeth whitening equipment and techniques to provide you with excellent results. Expert cosmetic dentistry team at Anantuni Family Dental carries out a thorough evaluation of the discolored teeth by taking complete history and clinical examination.

For removal of surface stains especially extrinsic stains from coffee, tea, smoking and colored beverages dental health care professionals at Anantuni Family Dental in Chandler employ dental prophylaxis in the form of scaling and polishing procedures. For harder stains such as fluorosis, whitish spots of demineralization and hypoplastic enamel surfaces, minimally invasive micro abrasion techniques using strong acids are employed. However, deeper and intrinsic stains are not easily removed through these techniques. Bleaching techniques are essential for the removal of these discolorations using strong chemicals and bleaching agents. In the past, caustic agents were used which can cause harmful effects on teeth as well as surrounding soft tissues. With the advancements in cosmetic dentistry, newer safer bleaching agents have been developed in order to achieve teeth whitening with minimal side effects.

Safer bleaching agents such as Carbamide peroxide and Sodium perborate are used in our dental office for teeth whitening procedures. Rubber dam is placed and gingival protection barriers are used in all patients before application of teeth whitening agents to protect surrounding soft tissues and gums. Teeth whitening agents are used in minimum effective concentrations to protect pulp tissues in vital teeth. Dr Sandhya Anantuni and her dental care team at Anantuni Family Dental offer you both in office teeth whitening right here in Chandler Arizona as well as at home teeth whitening.  At home teeth whitening involve the fabrication of a special tray from the dental laboratory after taking impression of your teeth in the dental office. Teeth whitening agents are applied in the inner side of tray before placing it over teeth in the mouth. Even lesser concentrations of teeth whitening agents are used in at home bleaching trays in order to protect gums and soft tissues.
