Tooth Whitening

Tooth Whitening

Over time, stains on the teeth settle on the surface of the tooth enamel, causing noticeable discoloration. In such cases, tooth whitening can be performed using chemicals applied to the teeth. Tooth whitening aims to achieve satisfactory whitening and a beautiful smile.

Tooth whitening is a procedure that involves applying chemicals such as LED chemicals, halogen light, or laser to the tooth surface to lighten the natural color of the tooth and whiten its appearance. Tooth whitening procedures performed under the supervision of a dentist do not harm the teeth. Whitening toothpaste not only whitens the teeth but also preserves their natural color.

What is tooth whitening? Tooth whitening is a cosmetic procedure performed to make your teeth appear more aesthetically pleasing and white. Bleaching gels containing hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide are used in the process. These substances oxidize and break down pigments that cause discoloration in the inner parts of the tooth.

Things to know before tooth whitening: Tooth whitening gels do not contain dyes. The active ingredient in all gels is either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. The concentration of bleach in home-use systems ranges from 4% to 20%, while in-office laser systems range from 25% to 40%. The amount of whitening varies for each patient based on age, thickness of dentin, and tooth structure. Prior to professional tooth whitening, dental scaling is performed in clinics to remove external stains such as tartar and nicotine from the tooth surfaces. If you plan to purchase tooth whitening toothpaste, whitening powder, or whitening strips for home use, don't forget to have a dental cleaning beforehand. Is tooth whitening suitable for you? To be eligible for tooth whitening, you must be 18 years or older. There should be no existing problems on the teeth that cause surface irregularities such as old fillings, cracks, or fractures, which should be corrected before the procedure. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, there is insufficient scientific evidence regarding the safety of tooth whitening during these periods, so it is recommended to postpone the procedure. If you have dental restorations such as veneers, fillings, or bridges, remember that they will not be affected by the whitening process.
