What is Teeth Whitening? How to?
Teeth whitening, the color of the teeth to be opened in tone, staining and color fading is removed. Whitening is one of the most popular and common aesthetic dental treatments. Whitening is not a one-time treatment. The tooth must be repeated occasionally to be brighter and healthy.
Why is Teeth Whitening Treatment Done?
The color of natural teeth is caused by the reflection and dispersion of the color from the tooth enamel. Genes are a factor that affects tooth color. The thinner layer gives more color to the tooth.
Every day, a thin coating (pellicle) occurs on the enamel and collects stains. The porosity that may occur in the tooth enamel can increase the stain formation by keeping the stains.
The most common causes of teeth being yellow or stained are:
• Drink dark liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
• Teeth brushing and maintenance
• Aging also gives less shine by darkening and darkening the teeth.
What are the methods of tooth bleaching?
Home Whitening: In this whitening method, the physician prepares a transparent plaque by taking mouth and tooth measurements from the patient. Together with the prepared plaques, the substances to be used in the bleaching process are given to the patient. The patient sleeps during the night (the night is the best time since the food is prohibited during the application). This whitening process lasts 4-5 days and the color of the tooth can be turned 4-7 tons.
Clinical Type Bleaching: In this method, the physician applies the bleaching procedure in the clinic. Whitening agents are applied to the patient's teeth by means of special beam or laser. In some cases sessions can be increased.
In both treatment methods, the treatment should be repeated 1 to 2 years in order not to lose the whiteness of the teeth.
