Everyone dreams of white, shining teeth like in toothpaste commercials, but very few people have naturally bright, white teeth. We consume colorful and acidic beverages such as tea, coffee, cola in our daily lives, which cause yellowing and staining of our teeth. But this is not a problem without a solution.
This problem can be avoided with a cosmetic treatment called dental bleaching (dental whitening), which uses bleaching gels to lighten the color of the teeth.
If you want pearl-white teeth, you are in the right place!
There are office-type, home-type and combined teeth whitening applications. You can hoose which application is right for you based on the recommendations of your specialist dentist.
“In Office” Teeth Whitening
Office-type whitening is a laser procedure performed directly in the clinic environment and by your dentist.
First, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned of tartar. Lips and soft tissues inside the mouth are isolated with a special barrier, then whitening gel is applied to the teeth and then activated with light. This process is repeated in 15- 20 minute sessions under dentist supervision until the teeth reach the required whiteness. The process takes 1 hour in total.
“At Home” Teeth Whitening
If teeth whitening at home is the appropriate method for you, your dentist will prepare a plaque suitable for your mouth size. In this application using lower concentrations of peroxide, you can perform the procedure at home by wearing a customized tray with teeth whitening gel for about 2-4 weeks at regular intervals.
If you decide to get teeth whitening in Turkey during your vacation period, the process of teeth whitening at home will be explained to you by your dentist at SDC Antalya Smile Clinic.
“Combined” Teeth Whitening
Combined teeth whitening treatment is a method in which in-office and at home whitening treatments are used together. The procedure of laser whitening applied by a specialist dentist in the clinic is supported by teeth whitening at home for a period of 2-3 days.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
This procedure does not cause any harm to the teeth as long as it is performed by specialized dentists. At SDC Antalya Smile Clinic we use cutting-edge technology and high-quality materials which are administered by experienced dental professionals.
Some sensitivity may occur after dental bleaching. But this sensitivity is temporary and disappears within 48 hours.
How Permanent Are the Results?
If you decide to get teeth whitening in Turkey by choosing SDC Antalya Dental Clinic , your teeth will stay whitened for between 6 months and 2 years. But remember that since dental bleaching is a cosmetic procedure, the durability may vary according to both tooth structure and usage.
If you don’t pay attention to oral and dental care, smoking, consuming acidic beverages, etc. after dental bleaching treatment, the procedure may lose its effect in a shorter period of time. To have permanent whiteness, you should have regular care sessions.
How to Care for Whitened Teeth?
- Avoid extremely cold or hot foods for the first few days.
- Stop consuming coloring products such as cigarettes, tea, coffee, chocolate, red wine, cherry, caramel, tomato paste for at least 3-4 days after whitening treatment.
- Use whitening toothpaste to get a longer-lasting whiteness.
- Pay attention to your oral and dental hygiene.
- Avoid toothpastes and tooth powders containing abrasive particles.
Can Root Canal Treated Teeth Be Whitened?
Absolutely! We can whiten discolored teeth after root canal treatment. For this procedure, the filling in the tooth is first removed, the whitening gel is applied to the opened cavity and the tooth is closed with a temporary filling. This whitening treatment is repeated in sessions 3 days apart until the desired color is achieved.
