Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)

Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)

The practice of teeth whitening, which has become popular recently, is also known as bleaching. It is called the process of opening the existing tooth color by several tones. In this way, it is possible to get a healthier image. The application is carried out thanks to the fact that the hard structure contained in the gel, which makes it possible to whiten the tooth, removes the sediment around the teeth. Components such as carbamitperoxide and hydrogen peroxide contained in this gel react with the hard tissue of the tooth. Thus, oxidation occurs and the color of the tooth is opened. This process can be done to healthy mouths. Otherwise, tooth sensitivity may occur. Therefore, the dentist should start the whitening process after removing abrasions, caries and gum problems.

It is observed that bleaching application is especially successful in individuals with yellow toned teeth. The level of whitening varies from individual to individual as well as according to the previous color tone of the teeth. For this reason, it is useful to discuss your expectations with your dentist in advance.

What are Teeth Whitening Methods?

Among the teeth whitening techniques, there are two different techniques that are most used in terms of both health and aesthetics. These are home type whitening and office type whitening that people use with physician controls and recommendations.

Home Type Teeth Whitening Method

  • Measurements are taken from your teeth and thin silicone containers are prepared to be attached to your teeth.
  • The drug is added to the container specially prepared for the individual.
  • This mold is worn on the teeth that are desired to be whitened for at least half an hour or two hours a day.
  • The treatment takes approximately one or two weeks.

Office Type Teeth Whitening Method

  • This technique is also known as laser teeth whitening.
  • The whitening drug is applied to the teeth by the dentist who is experienced about this application.
  • The light source is applied to the upper part of the relevant tooth for a certain period of time.
  • Due to the light that has interacted with the gel, tint blooming occurs on the surface of the tooth.

Moderate and mild discoloration is whitened with an hour-long office-type whitening technique in the dental clinic. However, the advanced coloration status can be additionally whitened with home bleaching technique. At the same time, the domestic treatment, which can be applied with a thin brush, allows to achieve a more effective result. Tooth whitening applications should be performed with a dentist.

Why Do Teeth Turn Yellow?

There are many different causes of yellowing in the teeth. Even if we brush our teeth routinely, the yellowing problem of the teeth cannot be prevented. This development may generally be caused by substances with intense colors such as cigarettes and coffee, which the individual has a habit of regular consumption. Or the color of the individual cat-female can also have a tone close to yellow. Such yellowing problems are not only caused by drinks and cigarettes. Factors such as tooth trauma, various medications, filling materials can also lead to yellowing of the teeth. In addition, yellowing of the teeth can sometimes be on the surface or sometimes on the inside of the tooth.

Does Whitening Weaken Tooth Enamel?

The visible layer of the teeth is known as crowns. This layer consists of three parts: enamel, dentin and pulp. The layer in which yellowing of the teeth occurs is dentin. The gel, which is preferred in the whitening application, enlarges the cavities in the enamel part and reaches the dentin layer. This gel changes the color by reaching the dentin layer. In all of this application, fluoride and nitrate gel, which promote enamel health, are preferred.

Does Whitening Cause Tooth Sensitivity?

As a result of the whitening application, sensitivity may occur as a result of the growth of the cavities in the enamel section of the teeth. But this situation is temporary. The sensitivity that occurs shortly after the end of tooth whitening applications passes by itself.
