As I got older, my dental problems were increasing, and I couldn't smile very easily anymore. I came to this clinic and made peace with myself again. I am very happy when I look in the mirror 👍👍👍 Thank you Erjola!
Who can teeth whitening be applied to?
The whitening process takes place in the enamel layer. Before starting the procedure, the suitability of teeth for whitening should be analyzed in detail by the physician. The whitening agent should not come into contact with any layer of the tooth except the enamel layer. Enamel cracks, cavities, old fillings on the tooth surface should be treated before whitening and the patient should be informed about this. In some patients, due to various reasons, the enamel layer is very thin, and even the dentin layer of the tooth is exposed in some areas. Such cases are not suitable for whitening. Apart from these, whitening can be applied in a professional environment to protect the gums and root surfaces of patients with widespread recession in their gums.
How Is Teeth Whitening Done?
Teeth whitening is applied by the physician in the clinic. The ratio of the whitening active ingredient in the bleaching product used is much higher than in home bleaching. In this way, it is possible to provide an effective whitening in a short time.
- First, a gingival barrier is applied to protect the gums.
- Then, the whitening product is applied to the teeth on the smile line and activated by laser.
- The process is continued until the patient reaches the desired whiteness stage, in 2 or 3 sessions, one session being 20 minutes.
