Bleaching is the process of bleaching the tooth color with various methods. The resulting whiteness can be preserved for up to a year if the teeth are cared for. With home-type or office-type teeth whitening methods, teeth can be several tones whiter than their own color tones. If necessary, a treatment plan can be created in which these two methods are applied in combination. At the same time, discoloration problems that can be observed in teeth with root canal treatment can be treated with the method of internal whitening of a single tooth.

Which teeth whitening method should you choose?

Home-type bleaching methods may be the right choice for patients who want to provide minimal shade difference in their teeth or who are unsure about color expectancy. In this method, the bleaching process takes place gradually by spreading over time, helping to determine the color tone in a more controlled manner. In case of dark tooth color, when a distinct color difference is desired in one session, an effective treatment can be provided with office-type teeth whitening procedures. Depending on the shade of the tooth, in some cases more than one treatment session may be required to achieve the desired color, or the bleaching process can be supplemented with home-type bleaching after clinical practice. For the treatment of discoloration problems caused by root canal treatments, single teeth whitening procedures in which the teeth are whitened from the inside can be applied. However, the dentist must make a detailed examination to decide on the most appropriate whitening method for the patient.

What kind of process should you expect in teeth whitening treatments?

When the home-type teeth whitening method is decided, measurements are taken from the patient and personal whitening plaques are prepared. These plates are used daily for a certain period of time. When it is used, whitening gel is applied in the amount recommended by the dentist, after use, it is easily cleaned by washing with cold water and liquid soap. It is stored in the plate box until the next application. Treatment is usually completed in 10-15 days if the plate is used for 4-6 hours a day.

Office-type teeth whitening is performed by the dentist in a clinical setting. In this method, since the whitening gel applied on the teeth is activated by UV light or laser, the tooth whitening process is performed effectively in a much shorter time. At the end of this process, which takes an average of 1 hour, a significant difference is observed in the tooth color. When combined teeth whitening is planned, the treatment is supported by applying home-type bleaching for 2-3 days, following this application.

In internal bleaching of teeth with root canal treatment; The filling in the tooth is removed, the whitening gel is applied inside the tooth and the tooth is covered with temporary filling material. The discoloration of the tooth is checked by the dentist at three-day intervals. When the desired color tone is reached, the whitening gel inside the tooth is cleaned and the treatment is completed by applying the most ideal filling material to the area.

What kind of process should you expect after the treatment?

After teeth whitening treatment, minimal tooth sensitivity may occur. This side effect usually disappears within 24 to 48 hours. The first two weeks following the application; It is important to avoid products that cause discoloration on teeth such as cigarettes, tea and coffee. If this situation is not paid attention to, the whitening effect may decrease in the early period. In the long term, the effect of the treatment can be preserved for a longer time by paying attention to the oral care routine and minimizing the consumption of products that cause discoloration on the teeth.
