BLEACHING/ TEETH WHITENING
Often, people with stained or discolored teeth may just need a whitening procedure in order to restore their smile. People with stained or dull teeth usually benefit from whitening, which is a safe and effective way to brighten stained, discolored or dull teeth. Even a stubborn single tooth that is noticeably duller or less white than your other teeth can be individually brightened.
Teeth bleaching products, which contain peroxides, actually change your natural tooth color anywhere from five to seven -- but even up to twelve -- shades brighter.
If your teeth aren't very dark or very stained, you may need only one bleaching session. Tooth bleaching safely lightens the color of your teeth, and can last up to a year before a touch-up is needed.
In general, bleaching works for most people. Tooth bleaching is most effective if your teeth are darkened from age, coffee, tea or smoking. Teeth darkened with the color of yellow, brown or orange respond better to lightening. Other types of gray stains caused by fluorosis, smoking or tetracycline can be lightened, but with less-than-satisfactory results.
If you're interested in brightening your smile, have your teeth evaluated by us. Not everyone is a good candidate for bleaching. In some cases of serious discoloration and pitted teeth, for example, veneers or crowns may be more appropriate than bleaching. Moreover, crowns, bridges, and fillings can not be bleached, so it may be necessary to replace dental work to make it blend with the new color of your bleached teeth. An X-ray of your teeth may be the only accurate way of making a true assessment.
We at GAMA Dental Clinic highly recommend the “Home” tooth whitening system due to these four main reasons;
1. It is more effective, achieving more whitening effect than the in-office systems.
2. It cost the patient less
3. It is more gentle on the teeth, causing less sensitivity to cold
4. The trays can be used for many years and the only cost to the patient is more whitening gel where the full cost is paid each time for the in-office systems.
If you desire a one time, one-hour sitting, instant gratification of the immediate whitening of in-office whitening, GAMA Dental Clinic introduces GAMA PINNACLE WHITENING, a chairside bleaching which involves applying a protective gel to your gums to protect the soft tissues in the mouth. Prior to the procedure, a custom tray is fabricated, and we use a bleaching agent which, research expert proves to give more whitening than any other leading brands. The bleaching agent is loaded into your custom made tray, and, the tray is carefully inserted and adapted to your teeth. With Opalescense Xtra Boost, you will have whiter teeth before you leave the dental clinic. This product is so advanced that it does not require a laser or a light for activation.

Most likely, you will want to continue whitening after your procedure to ensure that your teeth realize their whitest potential.
