Over time, the teeth discolor due to external influences. Every food contains colorants that can accumulate in the enamel, but are especially responsible for such things as coffee, tea, red wine, cola and tobacco. However, modern dentistry offers several methods to lighten the darkened teeth.
Home bleaching: Bleaching is done at home. The patient receives from the doctor a carrier rail on which he applies the bleaching gel and which he puts on the teeth every night.
In Office Bleaching:This procedure is done under dental supervision in practice, the gums are better protected and the bleaching process is significantly accelerated. In these methods, a beam source is used and the bleaching with gels which assures a faster and better effect.
In both methods, bleaching must be preceded by thorough professional teeth cleaning, and abstinence from the above-mentioned stimulants – for about one to two weeks.
Walking Bleach: Root-treated teeth will turn grayish over time. These individual teeth can also be lightened from the inside with strong bleach. The bleaching gel remains in the tooth for a few days. You can even do it again if you wish.
After bleaching, a temporary hypersensitivity of the teeth may occur, which usually sets in a short time again. The procedure is not harmful to the teeth, so it can be repeated several times,at certain intervals.
