Tooth whitening


One of the first things you notice when you meet someone is his smile.
A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful - it can help you feel better about yourself.
Your teeth can also be discolored on the surface by medication, cigarettes, coffee, tea, red wine or certain food colouring. The solution is a very simple process vhat we call tooth whitenig. The material we use to whiten your teeth does not cause a change in the structure of the teeth, only the colour of the teeth will become brighter.
There are two principal methods to whiten the teeth: the form of one-hour bleaching sessions at the dentist's office, or home-use bleaching kits.

For „at-home-bleaching" we use less concentrated materials and it takes about 7-10 days to reach the optimal result. Traditionally, at-home whiteners use overnight trays containing a carbamide peroxide gel which reacts with water to form hydrogen peroxide. Carbamide peroxide has about a third of the strength of hydrogen peroxide. This means that a 15 percent solution of carbamide peroxide is the rough equivalent of a five percent solution of hydrogen peroxide.
The „in-office-bleaching" takes about an hour. The bleaching method is the following: we put a gel on the surface of the teeth and expose it to a special UV-A lamp with a narrow spectrum. This activates the bleaching material, and the active oxygen in the material cleans the discolouring on the surface and in the deeper layers of the teeth. After this we cover the teeth with a protective layer.

As the result of the process a brightening with 6-11 tones --depending from the patient- and smooth, shining whiteness can be reached.
