What is Professional Teeth Whitening?
Tooth whitening is the process of whitening the shade of the tooth by activating the bleaching agents containing hydrogen peroxide with blue laser light.
Our natural teeth color may not always be white. This is not about brushing teeth or oral care. Everyone’s natural tooth color is different, and some of us naturally have yellow teeth. Yellow colored teeth do not mean unhealthy teeth.
In addition, our dietary habits in our daily life also affect our tooth color. Foods containing colorants such as tea, coffee, red wine, orange juice can change the color of our teeth.
Everyone deserves to have whiter and brighter teeth. The easiest, most painless and most affordable treatment for this is undoubtedly professional teeth whitening.
In-Office Teeth Whitening Procedure
Laser teeth whitening treatment is a 1-hour treatment in-office setting. First of all, we do the polishing process to remove the tea, coffee and tobacco stains on the teeth. Then your gums are covered with a protective barrier and the whitening agent is applied to your teeth. It is important that the whitening agent does not come into contact with the gums, otherwise it may damage the gums. After the bleaching agent is applied to the front surface of the teeth, it is provided to show more effect with laser light and this process takes 45-60 minutes on average.
You will not feel any pain during the in-office teeth whitening treatment, there is no need for anesthesia. Hydrogen peroxide is used as a whitening gel. This is a whitening gel used in whitening processes all over the world and does not harm the teeth.
Does Whitening Damage Teeth?
There is no harm in teeth whitening treatment. Because, we do not even touch your own natural teeth. Only after the whitening treatment, sensitivity may occur in the teeth for 1-2 days. This will go away on its own within 2 days.
In addition, the bleaching agents used in Snowdrop Premium Dental Turkey are FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved and contain hydrogen peroxide like the whitening agents used in all of America and Europe.
Types Of Teeth Whitening
There are 3 types of teeth whitening treatments performed by a doctor in a clinical setting. All of these whitening methods are professional treatments. When deciding which method to apply, factors such as the sensitivity of the tooth, the natural color of the tooth, whether a procedure such as root canal treatment has been applied to the tooth before are taken into consideration.
To help you find out which whitening treatment would be best for you, each respective treatment is explored in detail below:
In-Office Laser Teeth Whitening
The most popular of the whitening treatments is in-office laser teeth whitening. This treatment is done under the control of a doctor and in a clinical setting. In addition, in-Office whitening is the one that gives the fastest results and the shortest duration (only 1 hour) of the whitening types. And in office whitening, we use bleaching agents containing ‘hydrogen peroxide’.
First, a cheek retractor is placed in the mouth to exclude the lips and cheek.
Then a protective barrier is applied to the gums and cured with light. The purpose of this barrier is to prevent the whitening gel from coming into contact with the gums.
The whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide is applied to the teeth in the smile line (teeth that are visible when you smile). This usually includes 20 teeth (10 top, 10 bottom).
Then the laser light is activated and waited for 30-40 minutes. This light increases the effect of the whitening gel, accelerates the process and provides a whiter tooth color.
After the waiting period, the whitening gel is cleaned, the teeth are rinsed, the gingival barrier is removed and the cheek retractor is removed from the mouth.
Home Teeth Whitening
For home bleaching, we prepare individual trays for you. You need to use these trays for 4-8 hours a day (you can also use them while you sleep). You need to squeeze the whitening agent your doctor gave you into these plates and place them in your mouth. Also, this whitening agent contains carbamide peroxide. In home bleaching treatment, you should use your whitening trays for 2 weeks.
Continuing home bleaching after the in-office laser bleaching treatment is very effective in long-lasting white color achieved.
Whitening After Root Canal Treatment
Teeth that have had root canal treatment may get darken. Unfortunately, this is annoying sometimes. We use special whitening agents for the treatment of darkening in the teeth. These whitening agents contain sodium perborate. A Whitening agent is placed inside your root canal treated tooth and the shade of the tooth becomes white after 3-4 days on average.
How Long Does Professional Teeth Whitening Last?
How long your teeth can maintain their whiteness after teeth whitening treatment depends on your dietary and oral care habits. To preserve the white color of your teeth, you should avoid acidic and dark-colored foods, smoking and beverages such as tea, coffee, red wine, sports drinks, carbonated drinks, and sauces such as tomato, soy, and curry.
How Much Does Professional Teeth Whitening Cost?
The cost of profesional whitening treatment varies depending on the country you are in. America is the most expensive country for dental treatments, and the cost of teeth whitening treatment in the office is around $1000 in the USA. In the UK and European countries, this fee is 500 €. In addition, since the whitening process includes cosmetic treatment, NHS or BUPA insurance does not cover the cost.
Laser teeth whitening at Snowdrop Premium Dental Turkey costs £130. Since the teeth whitening treatment is completed in 1 day and does not need to be followed, you can travel comfortably.
