Teeth whitening method is among the most preferred treatments in aesthetic smile design.

Tooth whitening is applied by two methods;

Office Type Whitening ;

It is the process of bleaching the teeth with a special light source, which is done by protecting the gums with a special solution applied on the teeth.

It takes about 45 minutes to 60 minutes. Some patients may need several sessions. With office-type whitening, the teeth of the person become a few tones whiter.

Tooth whitening is a method of removing stains on teeth with special solutions and techniques. So teeth cleaning and teeth whitening are completely different treatments. In addition, it is the process of removing the yellowing materials in the teeth in individuals with genetically yellow teeth for years.

Home whitening ;

There is not much difference between office-type teeth whitening and home-type teeth whitening system. There are only time differences. For this reason, whichever method the patient wants, it is preferred.

Home bleaching is a method that can be done by applying the whitening gel at home with the plates prepared according to the color values taken from the patient.

In this process, planning is made according to the habits of the people. For example, if the person uses a lot of coffee, tea and cigarettes, more teeth whitening will be needed. For this reason, they may prefer home-type teeth whitening.

Products (such as baking soda, bleach, etc.) or nunscientific methods should not be used for teeth whitening, because tooth enamel can be damaged even though it is very hard and it causes sensitivity and problems on the teeth. Therefore, it is important to choose products that protect the health of our teeth.
