Activated charcoal teeth whitening toothpaste can teeth whitening or not and how many days can get result.
Hey there, this is harmful for teeth as the charcoal acts as abrasive and acts by removing the top layer of your teeth. Offcourse it will show effects but with regular use you can develop tooth sensitivity. Instead go in for scaling followed regular dental visits and make it a habit to brush twice daily specially at night.

Can oil pulling whiten your teeth and remove stains? And can oil pulling help in better oral hygiene?
Hello oil pulling is a old method of keeping your teeth clean and dirt free. Its is good but you need to bear the taste of oil and swish with oil for a while. Better go for cosmetic advice from your dentist which is more human friendly. Hope this helps for further queries use code tb0604 regards drthusharbalan mds orthodontist army dental college.

Teeth Whitening - Are You Eligible?

Teeth Whitening - Are You Eligible?

If we think about what attracts us to a person in general, the first thing that we can think of is a great, warm smile. A good set of well-aligned white teeth is an important aspect of this great smile. However, white teeth remain an elusive thing for most of us. Some of the common reasons for discoloured teeth are as below.

  1. Ageing
  2. Hypo mineralized tooth structure
  3. Fluorosis
  4. Food habits
  5. Tobacco smoking/chewing
  6. Side effects of medication (tetracyclines, for instance)

The degree of discolouration varies widely and also is hereditary. Whatever the reasons, there is the option of tooth whitening, which is effective with optimal oral health and good oral hygiene habits. Tooth whitening is not for everybody though, the following are the definite contraindications.

  1. Teeth with fillings: The bleaching agents work best on natural tooth structure. Whether it is a crown or a veneer or a bridge, the bleaching agent will not work on these tooth-coloured fillings and composite resins. On the contrary, using a bleaching agent on a tooth filling can produce uneven whitening. The teeth without fillings will appear lighter than those with fillings. If the person has discolouration due to fluorosis or any other reason, then it is ideal to complete any pending restorative work before initiating tooth whitening procedure. This should be allowed to settle in for about 2 weeks. After that, whitening should be undertaken which will ensure the best results and match with the composite filling/veneer/crowns. In people with multiple restorations, whitening can result in the uneven colouration of the teeth and so veneers or crowns would be better suited than whitening.
  2. Sensitive teeth: Sensitivity is an indication that the dentin is exposed or is covered by a very thin layer of enamel. Whitening agents will not work very well in these cases.
  3. Poor oral health (gingivitis, worn enamel, cavities, and root decay): The whitening agent can irritate the gums or penetrate the existing decay or worn enamel leading to sensitivity. The tooth whitening agent works on the enamel, and as the tooth surfaces do not have enamel, they do not produce a whitening effect.
  4. Age: Hydrogen peroxide which is the most common bleaching agent is not safe for use in children below 16 years of age. The pulp chambers are quite high and the tooth is still forming, so bleaching agents are not to be used.

While choosing to go for tooth whitening, one thing to bear in mind is that it is not a permanent solution to discoloured teeth and might require repetition of the treatment. Having a detailed discussion will help set realistic expectations and achieve optimal results.

I had dental braces for about 2 and a half years. I maintained good dental hygiene, but a few of my teeth have yellowed. I have heard that teeth whitening with chemicals is bad for the teeth and you can loose the calcium. Is there any way through which I can get them whitened? Also, are whitening strips good?

Hello, get teeth whitening done by a professional will not damage your teeth. The available over the counter prpducts can damane the enamel as the concentration of these are not of the right standards. So you ca do some research and look for cosmetic dentists who offer teeth whitening procedures online.

Scaling doesn't harm your tooth. It just vibrates and removes calculus and stains deposited on the surface of your teeth. If you don't have calculus and more of stains then you can go for professional bleaching of teeth. But you may have to undergo scaling if calculus is present before bleaching. Without consulting a dentist you may sometimes do more harm to teeth or gums. So its better to go for professional bleaching of your teeth. This may provide you very predictable results just in an hour and is more rish free as gums will be taken care of during the procedure.

Charcoal powder is not for teeth whitening. Dont try it. If things get wrong then you may loose your hardest and white material of the teeth i.e. enamel.
