Whitening

Teeth that have been stained or darkened by food, tobacco use, age, medications or injury can be lightened and brightened by means of a non-invasive process known as teeth whitening. Teeth whitening or bleaching simply refers to any process that will make the teeth appear whiter. While there are many over the counter options for teeth whitening, the most effective and safest teeth whitening systems are the professional strength ones available at the dentist’s office. A dental professional whitening system offers a higher concentration of whitening components and delivers them to the teeth in the most efficient manner to achieve optimal results.

Unconscious teeth whitening can adversely affect the gingiva. Therefore, teeth whitening in the clinic is considered safer in terms of oral and dental health. Tooth color can be whitened with some chemical substances. However, since these procedures contain chemicals, the patient should not apply the teeth whitening process by himself without consulting the dentist.

Teeth whitening can also be done with products purchased from the pharmacy, with the advice of doctors. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the content of these products. Care should be taken that these products are not abrasive products on your tooth structure and tooth surfaces.
