Teeth whitening is a way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface, but it cannot make a complete colour change, it may only lighten the existing shade. If professional mouth hygiene hasn’t been done in 6 months, it has to be done before the teeth whitening procedure in order to remove tartar and plaque.
There is now laser whitening, Beyond Polus whitening system or office teeth whitening. During these procedures a rubber dam is put over your teeth to protect the gums, and a bleaching product is painted onto your teeth. Then a light or laser is shone on the teeth to activate the chemical. The light speeds up the chemical reaction of the whitening product and the colour change can be achieved more quickly using this procedure.
During the procedure of office teeth whitening, a modern specialized material with protective calcium, is being used and requires a light source – dental lamp. During in-office teeth whitening, the gums are covered with a special protective material, and then a whitening gel is applied to the teeth and activated by a diode light, which reaches the deep layers of the tooth and whitens them. At the end of the whitening treatment, the teeth are covered with a desensitising gel, because whitening may make the teeth more sensitive; however, the sensitivity often disappears within a few days. Depending on the tooth structure and other important factors, the teeth can become as much as several shades lighter. The result can even be seen after the first whitening, depending on teeth colour and damage.
The whitening effect depends on many factors – tooth structure, shade, enamel thickness, age, enamel, personal hygiene, saliva structure, harmful habits, other important factors and effect for each person is different and individual.
