Teeth Whitening in Mumbai, The Definitive Guide

January 8, 2021by Aesthetic

Teeth whitening in Mumbai is a trendy cosmetic dentistry treatment that offers a quick, non-invasive, and inexpensive way to improve a smile. Universally valued by everyone, men and women alike, the whitening treatments at AESTHETIC Smiles dental clinic in Mumbai are available to suit all budgets, time frames, and temperaments. Whether in the form of one-hour whitening sessions professionally administered at a dental clinic , cosmetic center, or home-use whitening kits , solutions abound.

Everyone who opts to make a teeth whitening sees a moderate to substantial improvement in their smile’s brightness and whiteness. It is not a permanent solution to discoloration and requires maintenance or “touch-ups” for a long-lasting effect.

What Causes Stains on Teeth?

 

  • Age: there is a correlation between tooth color and age. Over the years, the teeth darken as a result of wear and the accumulation of stains. Teens will likely experience immediate and dramatic results from whitening. At the 50s, teeth have absorbed many tough stains that can be difficult (but not impossible) to remove.
  • Eating habits: Regular consumption of red wine, coffee, tea, cola, carrots, oranges, and other brightly colored foods and beverages causes significant staining over the years.
  • Smoking habits: Nicotine leaves brownish deposits that slowly penetrate the tooth structure and cause intrinsic discoloration.
  • Drugs / Chemicals: The use of tetracycline during tooth formation produces dark gray or brown tape stains, and it is tough to remove. Excessive fluoride use causes fluorosis (discoloration marked by the appearance of faint white marks on the teeth) and associated areas of white spots.
  • Trauma: Falls and other injuries can cause significant cracks in teeth, accumulating massive amounts of stains and debris.

 

Tooth discoloration: extrinsic staining versus intrinsic staining

 

There are two categories of staining concerning teeth: extrinsic and intrinsic.

 

  • Extrinsic stains appear on the surface of the teeth due to exposure to dark-colored beverages, food, and tobacco. Extrinsic stains are minor and can be removed with teeth whitening. Persistent extrinsic stains can penetrate the dentin and become rooted if not treated early.
  • Intrinsic stains are born on the inside of the teeth tissues. Intrinsic stains result from aging, trauma, exposure to minerals (such as tetracycline) during tooth formation, and excessive fluoride ingestion. In the past, intrinsic stains were thought to be too tough to correct with bleaching. Today, our cosmetic dentistry experts at AESTHETIC Smiles dental clinic in Mumbai can improve the appearance and even remove these stains with teeth whitening.

 

TEETH WHITENING IN AESTHETIC SMILES DENTAL CLINIC IN MUMBAI

At the AESTHETIC Smiles dental clinic in Mumbai, we use different whitening systems:

  • Whitening with photoactivation: it is carried out entirely in the dental office. The treatment lasts about 30 minutes, and you can achieve whitening upto5 shades on the color scale.
  • Gel whitening: at home and in the office. This whitening is done by taking molds of your mouth at the AESTHETIC Smiles dental clinic in Mumbai, where the dentist will explain how to apply the product in the trays to follow the treatment at home. The practice will provide you with a kit with the whitening gel syringes and cuvettes.
  • Non-vital teeth whitening: it is carried out on teeth that have suffered some trauma that has affected the dental nerve. This procedure is performed exclusively in the dental office.

 

What are the other whitening options available on the market?

There are three methods to teeth whitening options available today. All three depend on varying concentrations of peroxide and varying application times.

  • Whitening in clinic

A great color change in a short period of time is the primary benefit of in-clinic whitening. The protocol involves the carefully controlled use of a relatively high concentration. The dentist applied peroxide gel to the teeth, but it is necessary to protect the gums with a painted rubber dam before. Generally, peroxide stays on your teeth for various 15-20 minute intervals that add up to an hour (maximum).

  • Professionally dispensed take-home kits

Take-home kits incorporate an easy-to-use, low-concentration peroxide gel that stays on your teeth for an hour or more (sometimes overnight).  The gel is applied to the teeth with custom whitening trays that look like mouth guards.

  • Over-the-counter products

The cheapest teeth whitening option, over-the-counter whitening, involves using a store-bought whitening kit, which features a whitening gel with a lower concentration than professionally dispensed take-out whiteners. The gel is applied to the teeth via one-size-fits-all paint trays, strips, or applicators. In many cases, this can only whiten some of the front teeth, unlike custom applicator trays that can whiten the entire smile.

Risks

Teeth whitening treatments are considered safe when the procedures are followed as directed. However, there are certain risks associated with whitening that you should be aware of:

  • Sensitivity: Whitening can temporarily cause an increase in sensitivity to temperature, pressure, and touch. This is more likely to occur during in-office whitening, where higher-concentration bleach is used. People most at risk for whitening sensitivity are those with recessed gums, significant cracks in the teeth, or leaks resulting from faulty restorations. Sensitivity to whitening does not last more than a day or two, but in some cases, it can persist for up to a month. Some dentists recommend a toothpaste that contains potassium nitrate for sensitive teeth.
  • Gum irritation: Most of the people who use peroxide bleaches experience some degree of gum irritation as a result of the of the bleach concentration or contact with the trays. Such irritation generally lasts for several days, dissipating after the whitening has stopped or the peroxide concentration has decreased.

 

Keeping the results

To extend the longevity of the whitening, dentists will likely recommend:

  • Home follow-up or maintenance whitening: implemented immediately or performed infrequently once a year.
  • Avoid dark-colored foods and drinks at least a week after bleaching.
  • Whenever possible, drink dark-colored beverages through a straw.
  • Practice excellent oral hygiene: brushing and flossing after meals and before bed.

As someone who has struggled with juvenile periodontitis since the age of 16, I've worked with dentists around the world, and it was refreshing to find a dentist that I was able to work with directly from beginning to end. Dr. Arora was highly professional, thoughtful, and empathetic throughout the process. I had already started the process and had implants in place, and she helped me with six abutments and a total of 26 crowns. I reached out a few weeks before my trip, and she responded immediately. She took the time to talk through my history, and I could speak with her directly, not one of her assistants. She was very transparent and empathetic to my situation. She addressed my concerns about fees and followed through by not making it about money right when I showed up at her office. She paid attention to every detail and was thorough and getting the job done, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to get some solid work done, whether it be implants or cosmetic work.

Visited for dental facial pain issue, this was a second opinion i needed but the doctor was giving ambiguous answers & was not open to explaining in detail what would be best treatment. Again the answers were confusing and doc was not sure if the treatment would work or not. After having consulted a few docs before i was certain that this condition is not a rare one and facial pain is very common today. Again i was to visit doctor urmi but another dentist in her place consulted me which was surprising as i had no prior knowledge of this. I would appreciate if the doctor showed more enpathy towards the patient.

Visited for dental implants Was looking for a good dental clinic in mumbai , found Dr Ritika online and was quite impressed with her credentials and the reviews on google I was struggling with a old broken bridge with missing teeth . On Consultation with Dr Ritika suggested me immediate dental implants. I had 3 teeth extracted and 3 dental implants place on the same day . The procedure was painless though there was some nagging discomfort for a few days later which is quite normal when you have so much dental work done in one sitting After 4 months the dental implants were restored with 4 ceramic crowns. I happy to be back to enjoying my food. Modern clinic , very professional , affordable and the overall experience at Aesthetic smiles dental clinic is good especially for nervous patients like me who tend to neglect dental treatment Highly recommended

Last year in the month of December I have visited her and she advised me to remove my tooth and then do an implant and I had the most traumatic dental extraction experience, still I kept myself calm thinking that she is well known and experienced doctor and it’s been 5 to 6 months she did not followed up and avoid to reply to my text about the implant, Today i have visited another dentist to my wildest dream, I came to know that she has destroyed my entire jaw bone in the extraction process and no implant is possible now. It’s all big name and low fame, terrible diagnosis and treatment. Please be careful.

I am from the US and was living in Africa when I needed some implants done. My global travel service recommended Dr. Ritika and my experience with her was fantastic! After I moved back to the States, I returned to India specifically to have her do more dental work for me. if not for Covid, I would return to India to finish the implant work she started. Both my dentist and oral surgeon here have commented on the high quality of work I received from her. Her clinic is exceptionally clean and her staff are very nice. Dr. Ritika was also very attentive to my travel needs and even sent cars to pick me up for my appointments. Plus, It costs me less to take a 2-week vacation AND get multiple implants than to get just 1 implant on the US! I highly recommend her, and look forward to when I can go back to visit enchanting India.
