Whitening

Esztetika StockThe discolouration of tooth has several causes such as:

  • smoking, consuming coffee, tea or red wine
  • hereditary factors
  • medication (such as tetracycline) during the time of tooth development
  • tooth with root canal treatment
  • darkening of tooth by the aging process

Whitening can be a solution for this aesthetic disadvantage. It can be performed at home or at the dental practice.

In-home whitening

The patient uses a soft resin mouthpiece prepared by a dental technician after the impression of teeth taken by the dentist. The patients will be given full instructions. Result will appear after 7-9 days.

Advantages:

  • the patient is not tied to a certain time
  • cheaper
  • in case of an allergy to latex in-home whitening can be the only solution

Disadvantages:

  • longer time before showing results
  • wearing the mouthpiece 7-8 hours per day

Whitening at dental surgery – use of diode laser

Steps:

  • thorough teeth-cleaning
  • applying a special gel to the gums to protect them from the whitening agent.
  • applying the whitening agent on teeth
  • one minute exposure to diode laser
  • washing off the whitening agent (the treatment can be repeated 2-3 times during a single visit)

Advantages:

  • more comfortable
  • faster

Disadvantages:

  • more expensive
  • a possibility of allergic reaction

Side-effects of tooth whitening:

  • sensitivity of tooth surface after the treatment (fluoride treatment recommended)
  • contact with the gums can be sensitive or painful

Whitening is not a permanent solution; the stains can show in 1-2 years and the process will need to be repeated on a regular basis.
