Teeth Whitening
Teeth Whitening

Teeth may lose their whiteness over the years due to food, drinks (coffee, wine and tea) and cigarette consumption. To correct this situation, teeth whitening (bleaching) can be done. Compared to porcelain veneers, teeth whitening is an easy, reliable, economical and more protective procedure because the teeth are not abraded.

Teeth color is unique to the individual such as eye color and hair color. The ratio of the elements contained in the tooth to each other determines the color of the tooth. The enamel surface has a porous (invisible small hole) structure. For this reason, the natural color of the tooth may change over time due to external factors.

Treatment Results

How are teeth whitening treatment applied?

There are two types of treatment that can be chosen. The first of these is the method that gives faster results in your dentist’s office (Office bleaching) and the other is the method that you can apply yourself at home (Home bleaching).

 

Can we get the same result in all kinds of coloring?

Yellow and slightly brown discolorations that develop over time give the best results. Dark brown, blue-gray discolorations are hard-to-whitening discolorations located in the deepest structures of the tooth.

Such discolorations usually occur as a result of the use of antibiotics such as tetracycline during the development of the tooth, and it may be necessary to increase the number of sessions in order to achieve the desired result.

 

How is office bleaching done?

The whitening process is done in a single session. For this purpose, the gingiva is isolated and a whitening gel is applied on the teeth.

Special light sources such as laser, halogen or LED are used to activate the gel according to the decision of your dentist by looking at the structure and color tone of the tooth tissue.

 

How is home bleaching done?

The home whitening method is also done under the supervision of the dentist. At the first appointment, the dentist takes measurements from the patient’s teeth and prepares a transparent plaque to be placed on the teeth with this measurement.

This plaque, which is used by the person teeth whitening at home, ensures the application of the whitening agent to the teeth of the patient and the protection of the gums.

 

How long can I get the result of the whitening process?

The office bleaching process between 30 minutes and 1 hour on average. A few days after whitening, the color of the teeth takes its final form.

Home bleaching with gels, which placed on plaques, created with the measurement taken in the practice gives results in 1-2 weeks compared to the gel.

 

Does the whitening process damage the teeth?

The whitening process applied in the right procedure does not cause any harm to the teeth.

 

How long does the effect of teeth whitening?

The effect of teeth whitening usually varies between 1-2 years. If you do not smoke heavily, if you do not consume foods that will color the teeth, this period will be longer.

In addition, if the office bleaching process is supported by the home bleaching process every 3-6 months, the time can be extended.

 

Can whitening be applied to every patient or can every patient use commercially available whitening agents?

Whitening agents are materials that are effective in enamel, the top layer of the tooth, and do not harm the enamel. If the tissue that is called as dentin under the enamel is exposed in the tooth, this area should either be covered with a filling or isolated by the physician.

Whitening agents should never be applied to dentin tissue. It is not always possible for the patient to notice the abraded enamel tissue and the emerging dentin tissue. If the patient uses the whitening products in the markets without consulting the physician and the dentin is exposed, he or she may face persistent tooth sensitivity.

For this reason, whitening agents must be used under the control of a dentist.

 

Is it possible to whitening teeth that have changed color due to root canal treatment?

The whitening substance is placed inside the tooth by the dentist and the whitening substance inside the tooth is changed by the dentist at intervals of 1-2 days until the desired result is obtained.

The result is usually excellent and takes an average of 1 week. In this type of whitening, it usually takes a long time for the color to return to its original color.
