Dental procedures are related to the problems of teeth and jaw bones. Broader classifications of dental treatment include endodontic, orthodontic, periodontics, prosthodontics and a few others. Among these, there are various sub classifications such as implants, root canal, veneers, bridges, dentures, extraction etc. There are many conditions in which a person may require oral surgery. Most patients come to us for cosmetic dental procedures which aren’t covered by their insurance or for procedures that are far cheaper in India than their home country.

Our services have helped many people move in the right direction and avail best facilities at the most affordable rates.
Also known as fixtures, dental implants are surgical components that support various oral prosthesis. These prosthesis may be crowns, dentures and bridges. In most cases of absence or loss of a tooth It is highly advisable to use dental implants. Incase of implants the process takes roughly 3 months to complete as its completed in two stages. The first stage includes drilling into the bone and fixing a screw. The second stage which generally is done after three months after the bone has healed includes the attaching or screwing up of the implant/Pfm crown. Implants are done for both cosmetic as well as therapeutic reasons. If an absent tooth is not replaced with an Implant or Crown then there is a high chance that the surrounding teeth will become loose or dislocate and eventually fall from their original position as well leading to further complications. We provide the best rates for dental implants in the world.
The tooth that fails to erupt in the dental arch of the expected development window is known as the impacted tooth. As they do not erupt, they remain retained throughout the lifetime of the person if not extracted or removed. These may eventually start to cause tremendous pain or some kind of infection. There are many reasons through which a particular teeth may be impacted. According to a general rule, all impacted teeth must be removed, except the canine teeth

The patients are advised the treatment and are given instructions on the process. Incase of implants the process takes roughly 3 months to complete as its completed in two stages.
Dental treatments/ procedures are always done on outpatients basis. After the anesthetic’s effect wears off, it is natural to feel pain. The pain may persist for 24-48 hours and soreness may be present for around 3-4 days. But this may not happen at all if the surgery is minor. In either case, the surgeon provides medication to help soothe the pain and soreness. If there’s no bleeding, the patient may start with soft foods. Oral hygiene with regular visits to the clinic help in fast and effective recovery.
Third molars or Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come through and are examined to be a frequent cause of oral problems for many people across the globe. Wisdom teeth common appear between the ages of 17 and 21.
Wisdom teeth removal is a common oral surgical procedure. Depending on the extent of the impaction, however, the procedure may be more complicated than a simple extraction.
In many cases, there isn’t enough space to allow the wisdom teeth to develop in normal arch form and hence they tend to grow sideways. This can lead to the impaction of the third molars which results in infection, pain, and swelling etc. Even if the teeth manage to emerge sideways, they cause difficulties with chewing and cleaning which results in food accumulation and dental cavities. In these cases, wisdom tooth extraction or removal becomes unavoidable.
How many sessions are required for removing a wisdom tooth?
Removing a wisdom tooth usually takes two sessions.
How long does the entire process take?
Healing may take longer depending on patient’s general oral hygiene and health. Healing of the soft tissue is commonly done within seven days of the wisdom tooth extraction.
What type of dentist removes wisdom teeth?
Wisdom tooth or third molar surgeries are performed by oral surgeons. Wisdom tooth removal can also be completed by a general dentist who has the skills required for removing impacted, partially erupted or un-erupted third molars.
Recovery :– The recovery period for wisdom tooth removal is about seven days, until the soft tissue over the extraction site heals up completely.
– Bone healing and formation of the gum tissue takes approximately one month.
– Jaw fractures during the surgery or if there was a nerve injury, complete recovery may take longer than six months.
Risks :– Pain and swelling
– Difficulty opening the mouth
– Pain at the injection site
– Slow healing
– Numbness or Paraesthesia in mouth or lips due to nerve injury
– Jaw dislocation
– Bone fracture
– Tooth fracture
– Dry socket formation due to loss of blood clot.
-Damage to adjacent tooth or bridge work or crown
– Sinus opening in case of maxillary third molar surgeries
– Do not smoke during the recovery phase as it may irritate the soft tissue and delay the wound healing
-Avoid rinsing the mouth for first 24 hours as this may result in losing the blood clot
– Take proper medication as prescribed by the dentist
– Stick to a liquid or soft diet and avoid spicy foods during the first few days of the recovery phase
– Take proper rest and avoid physical exertion the day following the surgery
– Use ice packs to reduce pain and swelling of the soft tissue and face
– Maintain good oral hygiene by cleaning and flossing the rest of the teeth, but avoid brushing over the extraction area
– After 24 hours following the surgery, rinse your mouth with warm saline water two to three times a day for at least the next five days.
What is Aesthetic Dentistry?
Aesthetic dentistry focuses on improving the dental aesthetic in terms of color, position, size, shape, alignment and overall smile appearance. This is a Sub-Specialty of dentistry that involves improving the appearance of person’s teeth, gums or bite. Aesthetic dentistry is also known as cosmetic dentistry.
Types of aesthetic dentistry
Examples of aesthetic dentistry procedures
What kind of training do aesthetic dentists have?
Following a dental undergraduate program, aesthetic dentists undergo additional training for at least 2 years.
Cleft Lip repair process
Cleft lip repair process is conducted over a period of eighteen years.Treatment of a cleft lip requires several surgeries.
Age 3 months:
The first surgery is normally done when the child is about three months old. The child’s lip tissues are stitched together, during the initial surgery. These stitches are tiny in size to reduce the chances of scars. They are normally absorbable and need not be removed.
Preparing for the first Cleft Lip surgery
Days admitted : 5 to 7 days
Anesthesia :General anesthesia
Recovery :– The child will take about four weeks to completely recover from the surgery.
– The surgery wound should not be stretched for three to four weeks
– Sometimes revision surgery and nasal symmetry reconstruction surgeries may be required
– Redness and swelling may lessen after four to six weeks.
Risks :– – Disproportionate facial bone growth
– Excessive scarring that cause itching and burning sensations
– Lip contraction
After care :– The surgery site should be cleaned with a special cleaning fluid and ointment should be applied.
-The child should be on a liquid died until the wound heals. Breast feeding is encouraged.
-Sometimes Surgeons use elbow immobilizers to avoid accidental injury to the surgery site.
– The wound should not be scratched.
– Direct sunlight should be avoided.
Cleft Palate repair surgery (Palatoplasty)
Palatoplasty is a usual cleft palate repair procedure that is performed to seal the abnormal cavity between the mouth and the nose. Cleft palate is repaired by a surgical procedure to reconstruct or repair the palate of the patient. It helps the patient in attaining normal speech. Moreover, it aids the patient to breathe and swallow, and helps in the normal development of the mouth structures.
At which age it is recommended to undergo surgery?
Cleft palate is repaired when the child is six to 12 months old.
Repeated and combined surgical procedures are often required when the child grows.
How is Cleft Palate repair surgery performed?
How to prepare for Cleft Palate repair surgery?
Duration of procedure/surgery : 2 to 3 hours
Days admitted : 2 to 3 days
Anesthesia :General anesthesia
Recovery :– The child’s pulse oximetry is monitored for more than 24 hours.
– A liquid diet is given to the child for two to three days.
– The requirement of additional surgeries is determined only after the child is four to five years old, when the speech development is almost complete.
– The child is given hydration intravenously, If a liquid diet cannot be given,.
– Sometimes pharyngoplasty and other speech therapies are needed to repair speech.
Risks :– Bleeding
– Airway obstruction
– Development of a fistula between the mouth and nose
– Dehiscence of the palate
– Tissue loss
– Hypernasal speech
After care :– The child’s mouth should be rinsed with water after the child is fed.
– A regular nipple should be avoided for three to four weeks.
– Solid food should be soft.
– A follow-up appointment should be scheduled after a week or 10 days from the date of discharge.
– Arm restraints may need to be placed if recommended by the surgeon.
– Rough play or activity should be avoided for some period.
– The child should not be exposed to other sick children to avoid infection.
The doctor should be informed if there is
– Bleeding from the mouth

To cover the tooth to restore its shape, strength, and size, and enhance its appearance. Crown is a tooth-shaped “cap”, which is put over a tooth,
Why is a dental crown required?
A pediatric dentist will probably suggest a stainless steel crown. In this kind of cases,
What kinds of crowns are available?
What are the steps for preparing a tooth for a crown?
How must I look after my temporary dental crown?
What issues could grow with a dental crown?
How long do dental crowns last?
Dental crowns last between 5 and 15 years. The life span of a crown is resolved by the level of “wear and tear” the crown is subjected to, how well you adhere to good oral hygiene habits, and your personal mouth-related practices (you must avoid such habits as using your teeth to open packaging, chewing ice, clenching or grinding teeth, and biting fingernails.).
Does a crowned tooth need special care?
While a crowned tooth doesn’t need any special care, keep in mind that just because a tooth is crowned doesn’t imply the tooth is protected from gum diseases or decay. It is desirable to good oral hygiene habits, which include brushing your teeth at least twice daily, flossing, particularly around the crown area where the gum meets the tooth, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash at least once daily.
Dental Bone Graft
Bone grafting is generally closely linked to dental restorations like dental implants and bridge work. In most cases, the success of a restoration procedure may hinge on the height, width, and depth, of the jawbone at the implant site. The implants cannot be supported on this unsteady foundation and bone grafting is often appropriate for the ensuing restoration. When the jawbone has suffered significant receded or damage.
There are numerous major factors, which affect jaw bone volume:
Reasons for bone grafts
In most cases, bone grafting is an extremely successful procedure. It’s also a favoured option to have tooth deformities, missing teeth, or diseased teeth. Bone grafting may increase the width and height of the jawbone and fill in fault and voids in the bone.
Firstly, the dentist will carefully check out the affected area so as to evaluate the general condition of the gums and teeth. If periodontal disease is found or the adjoining teeth are in bad state, these factors will be entirely attended to before the bone grafting process can start. The dentist will recommend panoramic x-rays as well so as to assess the exact width and depth of the existing bone.
Occasionally, a CAT scan might be suggested to establish the bone condition. Based on these results, the dentist might also anesthetize the area and examine the gum so as to figure out what type and how much bone is needed.
What does bone grafting involve?
The bone grafting procedure will likely take several months to finish. Bone is usually harvested from your own body (or on unusual instances got from a “bone bank”) and added to the affected site.This bone will fuse with the existing bone making the migration of cells resulting in firm adhesion and cell development. Augmenting the jaw with bone will lead to higher bone mass to help support and secure the implant(s).
At the time of the surgery, the dentist will numb the extraction and grafting sites using a local anesthetic. This membrane stops bacteria soft tissue and invasions and motivates new bone development. This procedure doesn’t need an overnight stay, and you will be given comprehensive instructions for your post-operative care. A small incision will be made to prepare the site for the new bone, which will be fastening into place. Sometimes, a synthetic membrane might be used to cover the new bone. The dentist will prescribe drugs to help deal with infection, swelling, and discomfort.
Types of dental braces:
Invisible dental braces are different to metal braces. Invisible dental braces provide a sizeable degree of comfort, and are worn with greater confidence, than metal dental braces. These orthodontic appliances are a series of clear plastic aligners, custom-made for the patient, which are used for straightening the teeth.
The aligner trays apply pressure and slowly move the teeth to the desired occlusal position as decided by the orthodontist. Invisible dental braces are smooth, clear aligner trays that fit comfortably over the teeth. The Invisalign or invisible or dental brace method are used a modern approach to correct malocclusion including computerized technology to customize the braces for each patient’s needs. These clear aligner trays are fitted without brackets and arch wire to tighten and are thus fairly comfortable.
The number of aligners needs is dependent on the individual patient’s condition and associated malocclusion. The patient is provided with a new set of aligners every 2-3 weeks.
How many sessions are required for invisible braces?
The invisible dental braces application is completed in two sittings.
The patient needs to pay future visits every 2-3 weeks to get a new set of aligner trays. The number of sessions needed for completing the treatment is dependent upon the severity of the condition.
How long does the entire process take?
The invisible braces are generally worn for at least two and a half years.
What type of dentist performs the procedure?
Only a trained dentist or orthodontist who holds a certification by Invisalign will have the authority to perform the lab procedure for the fabrication of invisible aligner trays.
Risks:– Sensitivity to bite
– Tooth mobility
– Gum irritation
– Losing the aligner trays
– Inability to wear trays
– Treatment failure
– Relapse of the condition
Dental braces or Orthodontic metal braces are the fixed appliances used to correct malocclusion and to straighten the teeth. They are used for the correction of occlusal discrepancies like open bite, over bite, over jet, cross bite, crooked teeth and various other malocclusions.
Metal braces are gold or silver in color and have two components:
Orthodontic braces have developed and better over the years and modern metal braces are less intrusive and more comfortable than the traditional bands and brackets. Metal brackets or braces are very strong and metal braces are most commonly made of stainless steel, which can withstand any type of orthodontic technique. They have a low profile design which is far less irritating to the lips and mouth.
Orthodontic metal braces exert pressure over the teeth by means of an arch wire which moves the teeth to align them in their proper position. Arch wire and Braces provide constant gentle pressure on the teeth in order to correct the malocclusion. The pressure applied should be gentle and the tooth movement should be slow.
Most of the standard metal braces require a ligature wire or elastic shaped rubber bands to secure the wire to the brackets. However, there are self-ligating braces which work with self-ligation technology to hold the arch wire.
How many visits to the dentist are required?
The number of sessions required for orthodontic treatment depends on the severity of the case. The dentist may extract teeth so as to create the required space, if there is not enough space for the proper alignment of the teeth. In such cases, the number of sessions may increase as the teeth are extracted followed by healing of the soft tissue. Otherwise, the placement of the metal braces is generally completed in two to three sessions.
In the first session, the dentist will place separators in the molar areas of the upper and lower teeth in order to create space to receive the bands. The patient is then requested to come back after a week and during the next session brackets are bonded to the surface of the teeth and arch wire is secured in position. Arch wire place pressure over the brackets and the teeth which compresses the periodontal ligament on one side and stretches on the other causing bone remodeling. The patient visits the dentist every 3-4 weeks round the entire treatment period to get the arch wire adjusted or regulate.
How long does the entire process take?
Metal braces are usually worn for at least two and a half years.
What type of dentist performs the procedure?
Dental braces are placed by orthodontists who are specialists in the field. It is a careful and sensitive technique and therefore a general dentist cannot perform this treatment.
Taking care of oral hygiene during the process
With the bands, brackets and arch wire on the teeth surface, it becomes difficult to clean the teeth properly. There are special tooth brushes designed for cleaning around bracket areas. You need to pay extra care to keep good oral hygiene and avoid food deposition or plaque accumulation around the braces.
Risks:– Irritation to lips and oral mucosa
– Tooth decay
– Inability to clean the teeth surface leading to poor oral hygiene
– Tooth pain
– Relapse of the condition
– Breaking of the braces
– Irritation to gums
– Decalcification around brackets and arch wire
– Increased mobility of teeth due to greater pressure applied
After care: Your dentist may provide you with a retentive appliance to be worn after the braces are removed, to rule out the reversal of the condition. This retentive appliance should be worn for a period of one year.
What are Dental Bridges?
Dental Bridges are good options to partial dentures and dental implants. Dental Bridges are dental replacements given to a patient when one or more teeth are missing from an arch but the others remain in a good state of health. They are fixed partial dentures which are made by taking support from the healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The teeth which provides support for the construction of the bridge are known as abutment teeth while the artificial tooth or teeth that replaces the space created due to teeth loss are referred to as pontics. Dental Bridges can be made from a variation of materials like gold alloys, base metal alloys, ceramic fused to metal and full ceramic.
They are much more convenient to use as compared to removable dentures and the technique is less invasive than placing a dental implant. However, not every patient is a good candidate for Dental Bridges. Dental Bridges cannot be used for the patient who has a long stretch of missing teeth. A Dental Bridge should be constructed only when the number of missing teeth is not more than three and the adjacent teeth or abutment teeth are in good health to support the replacement.
What are the different types of Dental Bridges?
There are three different categories of Dental Bridges:
Number of sessions required for a Dental Bridge
Dental Bridges normally require two sittings at the dental clinic.
How long will the bridges last?
Dental Bridges offer good longevity.With good oral care and regular dental visits and checkups, they can last for longer than 15 years.
What kind of dentist makes Dental Bridges?
Dental Bridge work preparation is typical work for the prosthodontic department and is performed by a prosthodontist. The procedure can also be performed by general dentists in public or private practice.
Anesthesia: In most cases, the work can be performed without anesthesia. However, if patients complain of sensitivity during crown reduction anesthesia can be used to complete the procedure.
Recovery: In general, patients undergoing the dental bridges method experience sensitivity following preparation work.
In the case of the patient with implant supported prosthesis construction, the recovery period is dependent on the healing of implants with osseous integration which may last for up to six months.
Risks :– Teeth sensitivity
Breaking of bridges
– Accidental bridge removal
– Latrogenic pulp exposure which may cause pain and the need for root canal treatment
– Inability to bite
– Injury to gingival or gum tissue
– Occlusal discrepancies which may lead to TMJ problems
After care: It is important to take good care of the bridges in order to increase their longevity and maintain proper health of the gingival tissue and the natural teeth. In addition to regular cleaning and rinsing, flossing, regular dental checkups are necessary.
Dental implants are metal frames or posts that are surgically put into the jawbone beneath your gums. A dental implant might be an alternative for those who have lost a tooth or teeth because of an injury, periodontal disease, or periodontal, or some other cause. This is put into your jaw to hold a bridge or a replacement tooth, which is an artificial tooth root.
Kinds of dental implants
Can anybody get dental implants?
Usually, anybody healthy enough to go through a routine oral surgery or dental extraction may be considered for a dental implant. Patients who have had radiation therapy to the neck/head area, heavy smokers, or those affected by uncontrolled chronic diseases, like heart disease or diabetes must be examined on a personal basis. If you’re thinking about implants, consult your dentist to be certain they are best for you. Patients must have sufficient bone and healthy gums to hold the implant.
What is a dental implant procedure like?
Based on your specific problem and the kind of implant selected, your periodontist will make a treatment plan customized to meet your needs.
What can you expect after getting a dental implant?
Dental implants are alike to your own teeth and will need the same care. So as to keep your implant plaque-free and flossing, clean, and brushing still have to be done.
Regular follow-up visits will be planned to observe your implant, gums, and teeth, to ensure they are healthy. After treatment, your periodontist will work very closely with you and your dentist to create the perfect care plan for you.
How painful are dental implants?
Local anesthesia may be used during the procedure, and many patients state that implants have minimal pain compared to a tooth extraction. Many people who have got dental implants state that there is hardly any pain related with the procedure.
How Do I you look after Dental Implants?
Dental implants require the same awareness as actual teeth, which involve frequent dental checkups, brushing, flossing, and rinsing using an antibacterial mouthwash.
What is Flap surgery?
The gums are divided from the teeth and folded back for a short time. Gingival flap surgery is a type of gum surgery which lets a dentist get to the root of the tooth as well as the bone.
What it is used for?
This kind of surgery is used to treat gum disease. It might be suited to those with advanced or moderate gum disease. Generally, a treatment, which does not need surgery, is performed first. This is known as root planing or scaling. If this treatment doesn’t get rid of the gum infection, gingival flap surgery can be used. It as well might be performed together with another procedure called osseous (bone) surgery.
Your dental hygienist or periodontist will first get rid of all tartar and plaque from around your teeth. He or she will ensure that your oral hygiene is good. Your periodontist will examine your health as well and the medications you take. This is vital to ensure that surgery is safe for you.
How is it performed?
What to expect after surgery?
Usually, it takes just a few days to recover from a flap surgery. The following are common ideas to help speed recovery:
When to call a specialist
Contact your periodontist if hemorrhage continues or if the symptoms worsen after the first 3 days. This may be due to an infection.
Risks :The roots of your teeth might become more sensitive. The shape or contour of your gums might change. Gum surgery may instigate harmful microorganisms into the bloodstream. Gum tissue is more prone to infection. You should take antibiotics before and after an operation if you have a problem, which puts you at high risk for a serious infection or if infections are mainly risky for you. You might need to take antibiotics in case you have certain heart-related illnesses, which make it risky for you to get a heart infection known as endocarditis. Have a weak immune system. Had latest major operations or have man-made body parts, like a heart valve or an artificial hip.
Laser teeth whitening is a type of procedure to correct discoloration of the teeth by removing brown and yellow stains from the surface. It is also known as professional teeth whitening or in-office teeth whitening and is performed by a dentist in her/his clinical setup.
Laser Teeth Whitening is a suitable and time-saving method although the results obtained are similar to those from at-home treatment. Laser teeth whitening is examined to be the fastest way of achieving whiter teeth and it results in teeth that are almost 10 shades lighter than the original. It is an effective treatment to remove any kind of stain from the tooth’s surface.
How is the whitening performed?
The laser teeth whitening method uses peroxide bleaching gel and a laser system to maximize tooth whitening.
How many sessions are required for Laser Teeth Whitening?
In most cases, the desired level of teeth whitening is achieved in just one sitting, while other cases with severe staining may need further sittings. The number of sessions required for laser teeth whitening depends on the extent of the stains on the teeth.
How long does the entire procedure take?
The length of time is dependent on the degree of discoloration. The procedure for laser teeth whitening is normally completed within 1-2 hours.
How long will the effects last?
If regular care is provided, the tooth whitening can last for as long as 1-2 years or more. The long term reaction of laser teeth whitening varies from person to person. Certain habits such as smoking or tobacco use, and drinking tea, coffee and cold drinks may discolor the tooth surface very quickly.
What type of dentist performs Laser Teeth Whitening?
Laser teeth whitening is performed by a cosmetic dentist. Laser teeth whitening is a typical aesthetic and cosmetic dentistry procedure. However, it could also be performed by a general dentist who has the required skills.
Risks:– Sore lips and cheeks
– Increased risk of tongue cancer
– Injury to gum tissue caused by irritation from bleaching gel
– Increased dentinal sensitivity.

It is designated for smile improvement by correcting crooked teeth, dark stained teeth by providing a natural look within a few days. Porcelain veneers are wafer thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front surface of teeth to create an esthetic increase and appearance the bite problem.
What are the different types of Porcelain Veneers?
The placement procedure of LUMINEERS® porcelain veneers requires two office visits: An impression of the patient’s teeth along with the oral structures is taken during the first visit and the impression will be sent to laboratory to custom-craft the veneers. This technique does not require placement of temporary veneers on patient as the tooth structure is left intact.
The procedure is finished by inspect the veneer fit followed by polishing to provide an esthetic look. The second visit will be scheduled approximately after one week for the placement of well-crafted LUMINEERS by bonding with dental-grade cement.
How many sessions are required?
The process requires two sessions.

How to prepare for maxillofacial surgery
If opting for sedation or general anesthesia you should not drink or eat anything 6-8 hours prior to the surgery. Any prescribed medication should be taken with only a small sip of water.
After care :
Activity: You can resume regular activities slowly after the first 2-3 days. This is because strenuous activities can promote bleeding.
Bleeding: Most bleeding is usually under control by the time you leave. Some blood-tinged saliva or oozing may continue for a day.
Pain: The doctor will prescribe medication to manage any pain you may experience.
Swelling: This may occur immediately after the procedure. It may gradually increase over 1-3 days. Ice packs may control the swelling.

Diet: You should eat soft foods and drink liquids 1-2 days following surgery.
What is Teeth whitening?
Whitening isn’t a one-time process. It will have to be repeated frequently if you want to maintain the brighter shade. Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to get rid of discoloration and stains.
Reasons for teeth whitening
If your gums have receded, the exposed roots of your teeth might appear discolored or yellow. Whitening products won’t make them whiter. Other dental issues may affect the success of tooth whitening. For in this case, cavities should be treated before teeth are whitened. That is because the whitening solution might penetrate decomposed parts and get to the inner areas of the tooth.
Whitening can be performed at home or in the dental office: – For in-office whitening, your dentist would most likely photograph your teeth first. This step will assist him or her to check the progress of the treatment.
If you have receding gums or tooth decay, whitening might make your teeth sensitive. Whitening as well doesn’t work on ceramic or porcelain veneers or crowns.
For whitening at home:
– Whitening gel has to be applied frequently everyday for 2 to 3 weeks at home. Over-the-counter kits also are accessible for home use. Your dentist can create trays to hold the whitening gel, which fit your teeth accurately. Consult your dentist if you would like to use these home products.
How it’s done
There are two important whitening procedures.
The best-known kind of vital tooth whitening uses a gel, which is applied directly to the tooth surface. This product has some kind of hydrogen peroxide.
Tooth whitening may be performed in the dentist’s office or at home. In-office whitening lets your dentist use a more productive whitening gel.
In-office whitening often takes 30 to 90 minutes. You will need one to three appointments. How serious your stains are and how white you wish your teeth to be. The number is based on the procedure used,
Vital whitening might not better the look of a tooth, which has had root-canal treatment since the stain is originating from the inside of the tooth. The specialist will place a whitening agent inside the tooth and place a temporary filling over it. Should this be the case, your dentist will use an alternative procedure, which whitens the tooth from the inside. The tooth is going to be left this way for a number of days. You might need this completed only once, or it may be repeated until the tooth gets to the preferred color.
When to Contact an expert
If you feel your teeth will benefit from whitening, call your dentist to discuss the procedure.
Risks: Whitening is not likely to result in severe side effects, though some people’s teeth might become more sensitive for a moment. You might get mild gum irritation also. Women must not have their teeth whitened while pregnant. The effect of the whitening materials on the growth of the fetus isn’t known. Given that the procedure is cosmetic, it must be put off until after delivery.
After care: If you consume lots of staining drinks or foods or smoke, you might see the whiteness begin to fade within a month. If you stay away from these sources of staining, you might not require another whitening treatment for six to twelve months. Re-whitening may be performed at home or in the dentist’s office.
