Teeth whitening can be clinical, office whitening - with a cold beam lamp, and home whitening with a splint.
Tooth discoloration is a natural process accelerated by the intake of colored foods and beverages, such as coffee, cola, or smoking. Tooth discoloration also occurs when taking certain medications.
Like white clothes stained with paint and stains on the teeth, they are difficult to clean with standard methods - brush and toothpaste.
There are two main ways of whitening, depending on whether it is done in the office (clinically) or at home (at home).
In the office whitening, requires a clinical visit, and the result is visible immediately. Home whitening is used as a support. It is performed at home, using braces made from tooth impressions. The result is visible again after the first procedure.
In Medstom dental clinics, we perform clinical teeth whitening with a cold beam lamp. The technology achieves good clinical results and high patient satisfaction.
This modern whitening system cleans both the tooth surface and its internal structure.
In just 30-40 minutes, stains and darkenings accumulated over the years are removed, and the teeth are a few shades whiter.
When teeth are whitened, oxygen-free radicals oxidize and thus discolor the tooth enamel. This returns their white color.
The final effect of whitening is influenced by many factors - degree of coloring, percentage of the active ingredient, use of light to speed up the process, and more.
It is generally believed that whitening hurts tooth enamel.
Medical indications show that whitening agents do not destroy tooth enamel in any way but only extract organic dyes from the enamel and dentin. This in no way disrupts the structure of the tooth, especially if the instructions are followed!
However, before starting the procedures, you should know that if you have crowns, bridges, veneers, and fillings, they will not change their color. Once the whitening is over, they will need to be replaced to become the new color of the teeth.
Practice shows that yellowish teeth are easier to whiten, and gray teeth are harder to whiten.
The expected results in both types of teeth whitening are strictly individual for each patient because several factors can affect the procedure's effectiveness - anatomy, age, dental condition, and hygiene habits.
