The teeth whitening procedure can be performed in the office or at home. Office whitening involves the application of whitening gel to teeth in the office, using high-concentration bleaches in strictly controlled conditions, with soft tissue protection and activation of the gel with a lamp or laser beam. The procedure is short-lived and in one visit to the dentist it is possible to get the desired tooth color.
A procedure in which the patient is given dental foils after taking jaw impressions, which serve as carriers of whitening gel at home. This procedure is very safe and simple. Gels used to whiten at home have a lower concentration, made by world-renowned manufacturers, which cannot damage soft tissues.
Whitening of avital teeth, teeth from which a nerve has been extracted, is also possible. A preparation is placed in the prepared tooth for a certain number of days, after which the preparation is repeated until we get the desired tooth color. The teeth whitening procedure should not be applied to children, pregnant women, nursing mothers, patients with advanced periodontitis. You can repeat the treatment after 6 to 8 months, optimally after a year.
