Teeth Whitening Ankara
Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic solution in which the colored organic and inorganic substances formed in the enamel structure on the surface of the teeth are removed with tooth whitening gels. The whitening process is in the form of applying a specially prepared gel on the teeth and accelerating the reaction with a light source or laser. The mechanism of the bleaching process is an oxidation-reduction reaction. The substances used release oxygen. The substances that cause discoloration in the teeth are replaced by colorless substances and whitening occurs.
Two types of discoloration occur on the teeth:
Internal discoloration: These are stains that have penetrated into the teeth and cannot be removed by brushing. Structural disorders that occur during the formation of teeth (due to drugs or excessive fluoride intake, etc.) are also included in this class. Bleaching is very successful in most of these cases.
External Coloration: Coloring that adheres to the tooth surface from some coloring foods such as cigarettes, tea, coffee and cola. Mostly, it is possible to get rid of these stains after dental calculus cleaning.
Different colorations may require different treatments. For this reason, it is best for your dentist to decide what type of treatment should be done.
Issues to consider in teeth whitening:
After the gums and surrounding tissues such as tongue and lips are carefully protected, whitening treatment should be started. Correct adjustment of the concentration of the drug used and the duration of use (bleaching gels contain different proportions of carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide).
During or after the teeth whitening process, patients may sometimes have a slight sensitivity complaint, but this sensitivity will completely disappear in 1-3 days. The important thing is that the steps required by the applied treatment are carried out completely and correctly. Teeth whitening is a harmless and very effective method when performed by dentists.
It is applied to teeth that have lost their vitality. It is the method used in the treatment of teeth that have been exposed to a trauma before or that have discoloration after root canal treatment. The process is terminated when sufficient whiteness is achieved by placing hydrogen peroxide gel in the pulp chamber of the teeth that have undergone root canal treatment and replacing it with certain periods.
According to the system used of the whitening agent applied to the teeth by the physician; External bleaching is performed by activating alone, with a light source or with a laser. In bleaching performed with a normal light device, the sessions last approximately 30–45 minutes and the result can be observed immediately. When the appropriate patient is selected, laser whitening treatments give much faster results. The duration of the treatment depends on the physician and the degree of whiteness desired by the patient to the extent that it will not cause damage to the tooth.
The bleaching process has no effect on fillings and veneers. For this reason, they sometimes need to be renewed depending on the tooth color obtained. Bleaching is a reversible process, albeit in a small amount, depending on time and the patient’s habits. Therefore, in some cases, it may need to be renewed periodically.
