Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is becoming an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment. The color of teeth is an individual characteristic of each person. The problem of darkened teeth is often attributed to unfavorable genetic characteristics, smoking, tooth aging, and the intake of certain foods or drinks, such as coffee, sweets, and artificial colors.

What affects the color change of teeth?

Yellow and even dark gray teeth can be the result of many everyday factors, including smoking, drinking coffee, tea, black wine, colored soft drinks, and certain antibiotics. If you have been a smoker for years or a coffee lover, the likelihood that your smile is not as white as it used to be is high.

What is teeth whitening?

It is any treatment that causes teeth to become whiter. To restore the shine of your teeth, you can choose from various types of fast and non-invasive whitening treatments.

Keep in mind that changes in tooth color can be superficial (such as those caused by excessive consumption of coffee or tobacco) or deep (such as those caused by taking certain types of medications).Also, teeth whitening can be performed on vital teeth and on those that are no longer vital, with the latter requiring a more complex procedure and longer execution time.

Types of teeth whitening

There are two basic ways of whitening teeth: mechanical whitening (rubbing) and chemical whitening (treating with chemical agents).

Whether mechanical or chemical, teeth whitening can be done professionally or at-home.

Professional teeth whitening

Professional whitening must be performed in a dental office by a dentist. This whitening is, of course, more effective than at-home whitening in terms of the speed and degree of the result obtained.

After decades of experience, we offer you various techniques of in-office and at-home teeth whitening with the maximum additional protection of gums, lips, and teeth themselves.

Whitening with a hydrogen peroxide lamp has proven to be the most stable solution. Whitening with new types of gels is also available.

How can you maintain the whiteness of your teeth for as long as possible?

You can extend the results of your teeth whitening treatment by avoiding foods and drinks that cause stains on your teeth, such as coffee, tea, black wine, colored soft drinks, and tobacco.

If you can't do without your morning coffee or afternoon wine, try drinking through a straw to avoid contact with your teeth as much as possible. It is also important to keep your mouth clean by regularly brushing your teeth and using dental floss.

How old do you have to be to whiten your teeth?

In most cases, anyone older than 10 can whiten their teeth, as this is usually the age at which all front permanent teeth have grown.
