White teeth make you more self-confident, more decisive!
Would you like your teeth to be whitened 100 % pain-free, rapidly and efficiently?
- You can have your teeth whitened at home
- or in the dental surgery
Whichever option you choose, the procedure is the same:
We apply a tooth-whitening gel to the teeth, which removes from the microscopic crevices in the tooth enamel the different coloured materials that have been deposited over the years, so that the original white colour of the teeth is restored.
If you choose to have your teeth whitened at home:
A customised whitening tray is used, which is made by a dental technician, based on an impression taken of your teeth.
Tooth-whitening gel is placed in this tray and after 1-2 weeks you will be the proud possessor of sparkling, white teeth.
This requires between 1-8 hours daily, depending on the type and is generally applied before going to sleep at night.
If you decide to have your teeth whitened in a dental surgery:
The great advantage of this option is that you can achieve a stunning result in a shorter time and the severely discoloured teeth can be whitened, if they need to be treated with an internal tooth-whitener.
In order for the tooth-whitening gel to be more effective it must be activated by light. For this we use a plasma lamp.
We guarantee you 100% pain-free, whitening of your teeth in only an hour with immediately visible results!
Which option would you like to choose?
- Treatment at home, which is time consuming, but in theory as effective as that provided by the dental surgery.
- Treatment at the surgery, where, within an hour, your teeth can become whiter by up to 8 shades.
Whichever option you choose, one thing is certain: the condition of your teeth is of critical importance, whatever dental procedure you would like.
This is why before you have your teeth whitened, it is essential to visit us for a free check-up.
What you should know before you have your teeth whitened!
– a regular check-up and cleaning of the teeth are as important before whitening as after.
– the extent that the teeth can be whitened depends on their original colour, life style, nutrition, smoking and consumption of tea and coffee.
– already existing white blemishes on the tooth enamel can become even whiter after the treatment, and the enamel blemish that was not visible before whitening, becomes visible as a stripe or stain. These will fade after a few weeks at the most, only in rare cases do they remain visible.
– teeth whitening does not change the colour of already existing fillings or tooth replacements, so they must be replaced if after teeth whitening their colour does not harmonize with that of the whitened teeth.
– the colour of the tooth that has received root canal treatment will anyway differ from the colour of the other teeth, this is why its colour after whitening will not be the same as that of the natural teeth. The tooth that has received a root canal treatment can receive further whitening using an internal whitener.
– the part of the tooth close to the gum has a darker colour. That is why this area needs a longer time for whitening and it will usually never be as white as the other parts of the tooth. If the patient suffers from a sensitive tooth neck, whitening of this part of the tooth is not recommended.
– some patients complain of an unpleasant feeling on the gums, lips, in the throat or on the tongue. If these symptoms continue for more than two days or they become stronger, contact your dentist. These side-effects usually cease within 1-3 days after the treatment.
– some old amalgam fillings cause a purple discolouring on the tooth SÍN, this is normal.
During whitening, the teeth can become sensitive.
After whitening the following may occur:
– the gum and the mucous membrane can become white, which will fade within a few hours
– the teeth will be painful for a few days
– the teeth will be sensitive to the cold and heat for a few weeks after whitening
The following can weaken the effect of whitening and cause discolouring of the teeth:
– consumption of coffee, tea, red wine and foods containing colouring (curry, tomatoes, ketchup)
For a few weeks after whitening, the above should be avoided and special toothpastes should be used, such as: Sensodyne and Elmex.
Consumption of food and drinks with a high citric acid content can make the teeth sensitive. After a time food, drink and smoking will again discolour the teeth.
Frequent whitening of the teeth can damage the tooth enamel.
