In most of the cases, the natural color of teeth is in a range of light greyish-yellow shades. Teeth usually darken with age & their appearance can be changed by the accumulation of exterior stains obtained from the use of tobacco products & the eating of certain foods or drinks.
In extension, the perception of the color of teeth is seriously affected by skin tone & make-up. Independent of the real color of their teeth, people by darker skin or who use dark makeup will resemble like they have brighter teeth.
Though teeth are not naturally expected to be entirely white, many Canadians need a brighter smile. Responding to this want, a wide range of “whitening” options has become possible to patients. These products fall into two foremost categories: surface whiteners & bleaches.
It should be well-known that claims linked to tooth whitening are seen as cosmetic in nature. These claims must be correct, so as not to deceive the public. Though, the regulator tolerates any puffery or exaggeration. As an outcome, the results of whitening treatment can not be as convincing as customers originally expected.
Most bleaching products have peroxide-based & are actually able of altering the colors of your tooth itself. Though, not all tooth discolorations respond to tooth-bleaching treatments. Individuals thinking tooth-bleaching should consult with the dentist to manage the cause of the tooth discolouration & to resolve whether a bleaching treatment will have the aspired result. This step is particularly important for patients with root canal treatments, fillings, crowns and/or with greatly dark stains on the anterior teeth.
A number of various bleaching techniques & products are accessible to patients. Your dentist will apply one of these two approaches to whiten your teeth:
Vital bleaching is done on “living” teeth & can be used to whiten the teeth if they have become stained by food or tobacco, or if they have become dark with age.
Non-vital bleaching is done on teeth that are no longer “alive.” If your tooth has broken as of the root canal, nonvital bleaching may lighten your tooth from the relieve out.
There are three techniques for bleaching teeth. The method that would work enough for you depends on the number of teeth that require being bleached, & on how badly they have stained or discolored.
- Putting the special bleach on stained teeth & using heat (or heat & light) to raise the bleaching action; or
- Wearing the custom-made mouthguard filled by the special bleach for part of every day; or
- Brushing with the appropriate bleach mixed in toothpaste.
Bleaching should be done simply under a dentist’s care. Tooth-bleaching under controlled dental office conditions may be safe and effective, but the new in-office vital tooth bleaching methods, especially those applying laser & lights, have known scientific evaluation.
Cleft lips and Cleft palate repair
Cleft lips and Cleft palate repair are a surgical procedure to correct congenital anomalies in the upper lip and palate (roof of the mouth).
A Cleft lip is a birth defect:
- A Cleft lip may be just a small notch in the lip. It can also be a complete Cleft in the lip that goes all the way to the base of the nose.
- A cleft palate can be on one or both sides of the roof of the mouth. He can go all the length of the palace.
- Your child may suffer from one or both of these conditions at birth.
- Most of the time, split lips repair is performed when the child is 6 to 12 weeks old.
For split lips surgery, your child will have general anesthesia (asleep and not feeling pain). The surgeon will cut the tissues and sew the lip together. The points will be very small so that the scar is as small as possible. Most stitches will absorb into the tissue as the scar heals, so they will not need to be removed later.
Most of the time, cleft palate repair occurs when the child is older, between 9 months and 1 year. This allows the palate to change as the baby grows. Doing the repair when the child is this age will help prevent other speech disorders as the child develops.
In repairing the cleft palate, your child will have a general anesthetic (sleeping and not feeling pain). The tissue of the roof of the mouth can be moved on to cover the veil of the palate. Sometimes a child will need more than one surgery to close the palate.
During these procedures, the surgeon may also need to repair the tip of your child’s nose. This surgery is called rhinoplasty.
