Do you have stained teeth that make you feel self-conscious about smiling? With advancing age, the daily use of medication, tobacco, food and drink colouring our teeth, our smile ceases to be glamorous. The simplest way to recover a bright smile is teeth whitening. Whitening is a safe, fast and efficient procedure for changing the colour of teeth. With this procedure, the teeth can be made whiter by 2-3 tones on the chromatic scale. After whitening, the colour achieved is stabilized during the next two weeks. During the whole process, it is recommended to avoid the use of tobacco, red wine, tea, foods and drinks with high staining ability. More detailed written instructions will be given to you from your dentist.
During teeth whitening, sensitivity may occur, which is only transitory. The whole process can be done in the office, at home or in a combination of the two. The one deciding which method to follow is the dentist. The materials used meet the specifications of the EU and ADA and are perfectly safe. The effect of whitening is relatively permanent if the patient is careful with the use of staining substances. The result can be kept longer if occasionally the patient receives a booster dose of whitening at home, and naturally, it lasts longer in non-smoking patients.
