Teeth whitening is a process that is provided with the help of a chemical agent on the upper part of the tooth, namely the enamel layer.

How Is Teeth Whitening Procedure?

If your dentist decides that there will be no problem in whitening, applies this process with the help of a whitening gel that may contain different substances. The material choice can be done between light activated or chemically activated.

The procedure can be applied in a single session or in several sessions depending on the natural tooth structure. The whiting process does not necessarily have to continue until the end. Sometimes the process may be incomplete due to a sharp sensitivity in the teeth.

How long does Whitening Process take?

The teeth whitening process varies according to the chemical used, but it takes nearly 1-hour.

What to Consider After Teeth Whitening

After the bleaching process, the patient should stay away from colored drinks and foods for 3 or 4 days. While the patient does not need to do anything extra for oral and dental health, the only thing he will pay attention to is to stay away from colored toothpastes and mouthwashes.

What are the Types of Teeth Whitening?

Bleaching systems are divided into two as home type and office type.

For the home type, an impression is taken and a transparent plaque is prepared on the model obtained from this impression and delivered to the person. The amount of whitening gel described is applied to this plate and placed into the mouth.

Since home bleaching is not done under the control of a doctor, it is more diluted in terms of content, that is, it is weakened. For this reason, it may take a long time to deal with a successful and satisfactory whitening after the procedure. In some cases, the person may be harmed because the ingestion of this chemical or its contact with different parts of the mouth cannot be prevented. For this reason, the recommended method is clinical type.
