Teeth whitening is a painless, non-invasive procedure with a highly aesthetic result. It lightens hard dental tissues through the use of chemicals.
Procedures for teeth whitening:
home whitening with individual splints. Laboratory-made splints made from an impression of the patient’s teeth.
whitening in the office. In this type of whitening, a gel containing peroxide is applied to the teeth and treated with a special lamp. The advantages of this method are: 1. the whitening effect can be controlled. If necessary, more significant whitening of certain, more strongly colored teeth can be achieved; 2. saves time – the result is usually obtained within one visit 3. for greater effect of the procedure preliminary preparation is performed – tartar and/or plaque removal 4. safety of the gums during bleaching is guaranteed
whitening of non-vital teeth. It is performed in several procedures until the desired effect is achieved. A high-percentage whitening gel is used, placed in the pulp cavity, which is left to act for several days.
After more than 20 years of observations on the whitening effect, it is established that it has no negative or destructive consequences for the dental tissues, neither at macro nor at micro level.
The effect achieved depends on many side factors, most notably the consumption of coloring foods and beverages, as well as tobacco tars, hygiene habits and regular brushing.
The only thing that is certain is that the color of the teeth can never return to the original.
