A perfect smile is a necessity when trying to make a good impression on people. Stained or yellowed teeth can often put a damper on what would be a charming smile. With all the pollution and staining foods that people consume on a day to day basis, staining and yellowing of the teeth have become a common problem. Food like coffee, tea, red wine and even cola have a staining effect on the teeth. Smokers are especially prone to the yellowing of teeth, as are people who consume any tobacco products.
While tooth bleaching has existed for decades, previous bleaching methods were harsh and underdeveloped. They would often cause tooth sensitivity due to corrosion of the enamel and sometimes even lead to other oral or health problems as the chemicals used were not safe. This is why people often have an aversion to getting their teeth whitened and tend to forego the procedure even when recommended by professionals. Fortunately, modern teeth whitening technology, be it bleach or laser, is extremely gentle and only works to remove stains from the teeth.
There are a number of different methods that dentists use to whiten teeth. Tooth bleaching is a popular method and involves putting a bleaching gel on the teeth which remove stains.
A tooth whitening procedure will usually require approximately 30 minutes. You can easily take an hour out of your day to go in for the procedure. If you are going for a common tooth bleaching, the dentist will put a gel on your teeth for 30-40 minutes and then clean it off before you leave. This procedure will take three to five sessions and results will begin to appear after two to three sessions.
If you opt for a laser whitening procedure it will take fewer sessions to achieve the desired result. Depending on whether or not you are opting for a power whitening method or any other accelerated method, it might even take as few as just one session to achieve the desired results. Laser whitening will usually entail that the doctor put a dam on your gums to protect it from the laser. Then, a gel is applied to your teeth, that is activated as the laser is applied to it.
The details of the procedure, as well as the time it takes, will depend on your specific requirements as well as various other factors that include your dental health, the amount of staining and the kind of whitening method you have opted for.

Missing teeth are extremely common owing to gum disease, tooth decay and injury and pose a functional and esthetic hazard. Having a gap in your mouth can make you self-conscious and hesitant to smile. The adjacent teeth will also start shifting towards the empty space impairing the bite on the affected side. Implants (biocompatible titanium screws) are the best alternatives to replace natural teeth as the neighboring teeth remain unaffected. Unlike dentures or bridgework, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Under local anesthesia, the dentist will surgically insert a titanium post into your jawbone below the gum line as a substitution for the tooth root. The crown over it may be placed immediately or after 3-6 months to enable the fusion of implant to surround bone.
