How is whitening carried out?
Thanks to progress in modern dentistry, teeth can now be whitened using gentle bleaching gels. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth so that custom-made trays can be made. You then fill these trays with bleaching gel and wear them overnight or for a few hours during the day. After a few days you will observe a noticeable brightening effect. Best results are achieved when the trays are worn over approximately 14 nights.
How does whitening work?
Whitening gel does not attack the tooth substance. The effective ingredient, carbamide peroxide, releases active oxygen into the tooth where it gently brightens discolouring pigments in dentine and enamel.
Is whitening always successful?
The bleaching process is most successful on slightly discoloured teeth. Strongly discoloured teeth may take a longer treatment. Fillings and restorations including crowns and bridges are not bleached.
Will whitened teeth remain white?
The whitening effect is generally stable for several years. Should teeth slightly darken again because of food, beverages or nicotine, the treatment can be repeated every 6 to 12 months.
