Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a dental procedure to make tooth enamel brighter. To do this, complex technology is used – chemical destruction of plaque and pigment particles. Bleaching agents based on oxidants bleach the enamel effectively. The dentist chooses which technique best suits the patient’s indications. Teeth whitening can be carried out in two ways, external or internal – external bleaching or internal bleaching.

What is dentist-guided home whitening?

This is bleaching from the outside, external bleaching. We clean the teeth and make an individually adapted splint that fits the patient’s teeth. The bleaching agent is applied to the splint, and the patient can either use it at night or during the day.

What is internal bleaching and how does it work?

Teeth can become discolored if the soft tissue inside the tooth, the pulp, is damaged. Root canals can also cause teeth to become discolored. In such cases, the dentist can carry out internal whitening. The dentist first takes x-rays to assess the condition of the tooth and rule out contraindications. The tooth must have a tight root canal before the bleaching agent is placed in the upper part of the pulp chamber. The dentist then places a temporary filling for 2-14 days. This provides high-quality teeth whitening from the inside. After a while, the bleaching agent is removed from the tooth, and the temporary filling is changed to a permanent one.

Does it hurt to whiten a tooth?

With increased sensitivity in the gums and teeth, some pain or tingling is possible, but usually the patient only experiences mild discomfort.
