What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening treatment is the process of removing the stains that have penetrated the enamel and dentin layers of the teeth for various reasons and whitening the teeth according to the previous ones. The color of the tooth is also personal, such as hair color and eye color. It is possible to open several tons in the natural tints of the teeth with this method. There are various methods such as At-home Whitening, In-Office Whitening, Combined Whitening, Biological Whitening, and Whitening for one tooth. Depending on the time, budget, and availability of the person, one of these methods are determined and you get a radiant smile in a maximum of 2 sessions.

 

Teeth whitening treatment is often used in cosmetic dentistry. It is the most frequently used treatment method for patients for an aesthetic and healthy-looking smile. With the developing technology, options are increasing in the field of dental aesthetics and new trends are emerging. Teeth whitening applications are also used for Hollywood Smile, which is one of the popular applications of recent years in smile aesthetics.

What are the advantages of the teeth whitening procedure?

  • Tooth stones are used to remove color changes that cannot be eliminated by cleaning or polishing applications.

 

  • It is possible to whiten a few tons of the teeth’ own tones.

 

  • This can be applied instead of other methods like porcelain veneers for teeth.

Why does color change occur in teeth?

For people who care about their personal care, color disorders, stains, and yellowing in the teeth are quite bothering. Although people regularly carry out their oral care routine, in some cases undesirable color changes may occur in the teeth. This situation gives the impression that people do not care about oral hygiene and causes negativity in terms of image.

 

Factors causing discoloration in teeth:

 

  • Structural disorders occur during the formation of teeth.

  • Yellowing due to fluorine intake.

  • Amalgam filling applications.

  • Trauma-induced tooth stains.

  • Color changes are emitted from the inside of the teeth after root canal treatment.

  • Use of antibiotics during pregnancy or infancy.

  • Excessive consumption of colorful beverages such as coffee, cola, tea, and wine.

  • Yellowing due to long-term use of tobacco and tobacco products.

  • Color changes due to aging.

  • Genetic factors.

In-office type teeth whitening treatment

It is carried out professionally in a clinical setting under the supervision of a doctor. It is the most effective method of all whitening methods. The higher peroxide ratios of the whitening materials used during the operation make whitening faster. Its permanence is longer. Treatment can last 2-3 sessions, the number of sessions varies depending on the color change in the tooth.

 

Treatment stages:

 

  • Dental stone cleaning and Scaling procedures are also applied on patients in order to make the treatment more effective before whitening is applied.

  • Before and after the treatment session, photos are taken of the patients, and color determination is made.

  • Before the operation, the gums are closed with a protective barrier in order not to be damaged by whitening materials.

  • Then whitening gel is applied to the teeth. The whitening gel is activated using UV rays or a laser.

  • 2 or 3 periods of the teeth whitening gel are applied in periods of about 15 minutes.

 

During the session intervals, the patient is asked to avoid coloring drinks such as tea, coffee, and wine and is recommended to reduce smoking. During these whitening sessions, sensitivity may occur in the teeth, but this sensitivity is eliminated when special kinds of toothpaste are used.
