If you are satisfied with the shape, form and alignment of your teeth but are not satisfied with the color, it is possible to achieve a whiter, well-groomed and healthy appearance with today’s bleaching techniques and materials. Two types of bleaching procedures are performed in the clinic, which we call in office- type and home-type whitening.
In the office-type whitening process, special whitening gels are applied on the teeth and then the gel is activated using special light sources. The activated gel provides several tones of whitening of the teeth in a single session.
The dentist can provide you with the whitening gel that you can apply at home with the help of transparent trays specially prepared for you in the home-type whitening process. Home bleaching should also be done under the control of the dentist.
Does the whitening process harm the teeth?
After it is determined by your dentist that there is no open caries or gum disease in the mouth, the whitening process applied with the correct technique and appropriate material does not cause any harm to the teeth.
How long does the whitening effect last?
After the bleaching process, the teeth return to their original form within 1-2 years. However, this period may vary depending on the person’s daily habits and tooth structure. During this period, acidic and colored drinks should be avoided and excessively hard tooth brushing should not be done.
