Teeth Whitening

What is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a procedure performed to restore the natural color of teeth or achieve a whiter appearance. Over time, teeth may change color due to factors such as aging, as well as foods and beverages that can cause staining, such as coffee, tea, wine and cigarettes. Teeth whitening helps remove these stains and discoloration.

 

How is Teeth Whitening Done?

Teeth whitening can be done in two ways:

1. Professional Teeth Whitening: It is a teeth whitening process performed by dentists in a clinical environment. This process is performed using stronger whitening gels and light sources. Professional teeth whitening gives faster and more effective results compared to home whitening methods.

 

2. Teeth Whitening at Home: It is a process performed at home using teeth whitening products prescribed by the dentist or sold in pharmacies. At-home teeth whitening is less powerful and may take longer than professional teeth whitening.

 

Teeth whitening may produce different results depending on each individual’s tooth structure and color. Some teeth whiten more easily than others. It is important to consult a dentist before teeth whitening and choose the most appropriate method.

 

Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?

The permanence of the teeth whitening process varies depending on the person’s oral care habits, foods and beverages consumed, and the whitening method used.

Generally:

Professional teeth whitening: Can last from 1 to 3 years.

Teeth whitening at home: It can be permanent for 6 months to 1 year.

 

Who Can Have Teeth Whitening?

 

Teeth whitening can be applied to almost everyone who has generally healthy teeth.

However, in some cases, teeth whitening may not be recommended or may be risky:

Gum disease: In people with gum disease, the whitening process can cause gum irritation and inflammation. Therefore, gum disease must be treated first.

 

Decayed teeth: Whitening of decayed teeth can erode tooth enamel and cause decay to progress. Therefore, decayed teeth should be treated first.

 

Sensitive teeth: For people with sensitive teeth, whitening may increase tooth sensitivity. Therefore, whitening products specially produced for sensitive teeth should be used.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women: The effects of teeth whitening on the baby in pregnant or breastfeeding women are not fully known. Therefore, teeth whitening is not recommended during this period.

 

Dental fillings or crowns: Dental fillings or crowns do not respond to teeth whitening. Therefore, the whitening process will only be effective on natural teeth.
