Tooth bleaching Information

The cause of teeth losing their original whiteness over the years is due to both internal and external factors. As we age, by-products of the metabolic process are deposited in the dental matter, causing our teeth to become darker. Disco­lo­ration can also be caused by food, parti­cu­larly tea, coffee and red wine, which, when consumed regularly, lead to visible changes in the color of the teeth.

Teeth can be brigh­tened using hydrogen peroxide or the more commonly used carbamide peroxide, both of which dissolve the disco­lo­ration of the tooth matter so it can be flushed out. In-office bleaching uses more highly concen­trated chemicals in the whitening process. Thermo­ana­lytic bleaching relies on light and heat to accelerate the whitening process.

The effects of bleaching usually last about a year if the instruc­tions are carefully followed. For the effect of bleaching to last as long as possible, regular cleaning by a dental profes­sional should be carried out. Additio­nally, good oral hygiene and thorough dental care will extend the life of the treatment. To further support the effects of in-office bleaching, a special whitening tooth­paste can also be used. Repeating the bleaching is not a problem.

One of the most common side effects of bleaching is temporary hyper­sen­si­tivity of the teeth to heat and cold. If bleach comes in contact with the gums or the oral mucosa, slight irritation may occur but will disappear after a few days. The bleaching treatment is not recom­mended to clients who are allergic to components of the bleaching agent or to clients with prono­unced tooth damage (e.g., tooth decay) or gum disease (e.g., paradon­tosis). Heavy smokers, wearers of braces, and pregnant women are also not candi­dates for bleaching.
