What is Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)?
First of all, it is the process of lightening the color of the teeth which applied due to medical indications and aesthetic reasons. In terms of medical indication, bleaching can be used in various diseases such as tetracycline discoloration and fluorosis. Aesthetically, teeth with very serious dark tones can be bleached to improve the psychology of the patient. It is possible to implement the whitening process with several techniques, depending on the condition of the patient and the course of the case. The bleaching process can be reversible and may need to be repeated every few years.
Clinical Teeth Whitening (Office Bleaching)
As the name suggests, it is a whitening procedure applied directly by the dentist in the clinic. ‘Office bleaching’, is a procedure that applied to your teeth under the control of a dentist using blue light and whitening gel. As a result, the teeth color can be opened a few tones at the end of the procedure and can maintain its effectiveness for a long time. After this procedure is completed in our clinic, we recommend our patients to stay away from cigarettes, coffee, red wine and any kind of coloring agents. Also, in order to maintain the whiteness, usage of daily plaques may needed. Otherwise, the teeth may change its color again with the color caused by substances remained in the mouth.
Teeth Whitening with Laser (Professional Whitening
Laser, which is very important in modern technology, has enabled us to get successful results easily in many different treatments in the medical field. At the same time, it is an important tool in teeth whitening that leads us to a painless and definitive result in a short time. The most obvious feature that distinguishes laser application from others is that the time you will allocate for treatment is only 1 hour and it shows its effect immediately. In a one-session laser whitening application, if the dentist’s recommendations are followed, the teeth will maintain its whiteness for a long time.

The whitening process, which is carried out under the control of a dentist, can be performed painlessly and without any problems. It should be noted that this procedure should be carried out under the supervision of a physician and in accordance with his/her directions. Problems may occur in applications performed without determining whether there is caries in the teeth and sensitivity to this process in the mouth. We have too many patients coming to our center with serious toothaches, especially from people who whiten with home or pharmacy products without the control of a physician. In order for the application to be successful, dental calculus cleaning must be done by the dentist. If patient have applications such as prothesis, aesthetic fillings and etc., the whitening project will not be effective. In addition, prosthetic or aesthetic filling treatment must be renewed after whitening to achieve the same color tone.

Most importantly, patients needs to stay away from factors that cause their teeth to turn yellow, such as cigarettes, tea, coffee and cola.
