WHAT IS A WHITENING?

The term of bleaching comes from English and means as much as bleaching. Use the cosmetic treatment of bleaching, we are able to help you achieve an effective teeth whitening. Targeted whitening effects are achieved on the basis of the use of active oxygen – a targeted confrontation this oxygen with the tooth structure leads to the teeth to a lightening of color pigments. Fixed tooth components like enamel and dentin are unaffected by the cosmetic treatment.

CAUSES OF TOOTH DISCOLORATION

Possible reasons for occurring tooth discoloration are many and varied. In many cases, the influence of stimulants and / or food products such as tea, coffee, red wine or tobacco is responsible for an increasing Zahnpigmentierung – dyes contained are deposited on the surfaces of the teeth and penetrate a longer term in the enamel. Are the pigments included in the enamel, they can not be removed using the domestic toothbrushing.
Additional factors that could cause tooth discoloration include, for example, the long-term use of some drugs and external forces impact the tooth structure. Finally, even the natural aging process of participating in a tooth staining: With age also has the enamel frequently increased wear on. As a result, layers lying under the enamel (such as notably the so-called dentin) is optically clear to see that generally have a less bright color.

WHICH TEETH CAN BE WHITENED BY A WHITENING?

Basically, any natural tooth structure can be lightened by a dental whitening. So we achieve not only vital, but also to non-vital (dead) teeth whitening effects with the treatment approach if desired. From the latter option, you can benefit, for example if you want the brightening of a root canal treated tooth. The main reason the possibility of bleaching of non-vital teeth proves to be useful, because it is precisely these teeth tend to undesired discolorations.

Depending on whether vital or non-vital tooth structure to be subjected to a bleaching, we apply different treatments – while brightening preparations used are applied externally in living teeth normally, the preparations for dead teeth from the tooth inside act out. A professional whitening vital teeth in our clinic is also known as so-called in-office bleaching (external bleaching). In most cases, can be targeted brightening effects of such in-office bleaching in the context of a few sessions to achieve. The professional bleaching vital teeth is known in dentistry as an internal bleaching.

COURSE OF TREATMENT

If you have opted for a professional whitening in our clinic, we shall together determine a desired degree of bleaching your teeth. A suitable whitening degree depends on the desired optical result, but also on factors such as the individual color and structure of your teeth. This allows us to consider these important points during the whitening treatment, we subject your teeth prior to a dental examination.

Before the actual whitening we usually lead by a professional dental cleaning. Use of such a cleaning first aesthetic improvements can already be achieved. Especially unfold whitening substances purified tooth structure but a more intense effect.
As part of an external bleaching we now carry a lightening preparation on your teeth. Your gums are protected from the effects caused by the drug.
