What is Teeth Whitening?

 
 What are the Types of Teeth Whitening?
- Home teeth whitening method
- Office type teeth whitening method
- Single teeth whitening method
- Combined teeth whitening method
Although it is not possible to choose the best teeth whitening method among these methods, it is possible to determine a teeth whitening method suitable for the needs and wishes of each patient. Since each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, before starting any teeth whitening process, you should consult the dentists in our consulting room and learn how to whiten teeth suitable for you. Our dentist, who will treat you in our consulting room, will aim to perform teeth whitening without damaging the tooth, in a way that is suitable for both the structure of your teeth and the type of yellowing.
 
1. Home Type Teeth Whitening Method
 
The biggest advantage of home teeth whitening is that you don't have to go to the dentist all the time. It is possible to continue the whitening process completely from home after you receive your plaques, which will be prepared together with your measurement to be taken in one go. The most important point here is that the teeth whitening plates are used in accordance with the physician's instructions. For example, if you use the quantity of the whitening gel which is recommended by your doctor more than the amount that was recommended to you, the gel may overflow from the plaque and damages your gums. Likewise, whitening plates that are not used for the recommended time may disappoint you in providing satisfactory results in tooth whiteness at the end of the treatment. Briefly, within the framework of home-type teeth whitening method, a great responsibility falls on the patient, as well as the dentist.


2. Office Type Teeth Whitening Method
 
These laser beams we're talking about come from devices that emit monochromatic, intense, and flat light. The electromagnetic waves generated by the lasers become stronger and align on the teeth and cause a cutting effect on each tooth. It is precisely the high-energy beam of light that makes teeth appear whiter and brighter.
 
Office type teeth whitening method is ideal for people who want to whiten their teeth and achieve a more aesthetic appearance in a shorter time, especially for a special invitation, wedding, organization or similar important events.
 
3. Single Teeth Whitening Method

Firstly, the filling in the tooth canal should be removed and a certain amount of whitening gel is applied to the opened cavity. When the tooth is closed with a temporary filling and reaches the desired color, the cavity is opened again and the process is completed with a permanent filling application. The single tooth whitening method can also be performed in case of any impact or trauma related to the individual teeth that could change the color after the trauma. Of course, you should decide together with our dentist whether you need a single tooth whitening or multiple teeth whitening.
 
4. Combined Teeth Whitening Method, What are the damages of teeth whitening?
  
Teeth whitening solutions appear as a dental aesthetic procedure that removes stain and discolorations accumulated on the teeth, and also makes the teeth one or several tones lighter. The teeth whitening effect shows positive results from the moment the treatment is applied, causing you to achieve a visible change in a short time. It is precisely for this reason that teeth whitening is among the most popular dental aesthetic procedures.
Many patients who apply to the dentist for teeth whitening are actually unaware of the main reasons why their teeth turn yellow. Before talking about the types of teeth whitening and the stages of the process, it is necessary to take a closer look at why teeth tend to turn yellow.
 The root cause of yellowed teeth is, of course, aging. Just like our hair whitening, our teeth tend to take on a different color structure over time. With age, the inner part of the tooth, the dentin, becomes darker as the teeth repair itself, the enamel part of the outer layer of the tooth weakens, in addition to that the acidic and sugary food & drinks you regularly consume cause the teeth to turn yellow much earlier. Almost like a prism, the color of dentin causes teeth to appear yellow when seen from under the enamel. However, age is not the only reason for yellowing the teeth. Excessive smoking, tea and coffee consumption, incorrect or missing teeth and oral care, and genetic factors, which are an inevitable factor, can be counted among the other causes that can lead to teeth yellowing.

It is possible to divide the teeth whitening types into four in their most basic form:

Home type teeth whitening, as the name suggests, is a whitening method that can be performed in the comfort of the patient's own home. Before starting the teeth whitening procedure, the patient comes to the dentist for a one-time treatment accompanied by a mouth measurement. Based on these measurements, personalized whitening plaques are created. These plaques, which are produced in a sterile and professional manner in a clinical environment, contain a predetermined amount of whitening gel. During the home teeth whitening process, these whitening plaques containing a special gel should be used for at least 4-6 hours a day and this period of use should last for 10-15 days. In other words, it is possible to say that the duration of home teeth whitening is about 2 weeks. During this period, the patient can easily continue his eating, speaking and sleeping habits, because these plaques are prepared in such a way that they can be removed at any time. It is recommended to be used during sleep, which is the period when the person can wear them continuously; For this reason, sometimes these plaques are also called night plaques.

Office type teeth whitening, which is another teeth whitening method, is a method preferred by patients who do not have the luxury of spending a lot of time for this procedure. Unlike at-home teeth whitening, this type of bleaching, which takes place entirely in the consulting room, requires the patient to come to the treatment only once. Office type teeth whitening is performed in a much shorter time compared to other bleaching techniques. This method, also known as laser-assisted teeth whitening, occurs as a result of activating the whitening gel applied on the tooth layer with a laser. With the laser teeth whitening method, which takes about 1 hour on average, it is possible to get white teeth in a very short time.

Single teeth whitening method, as the name suggests, concentrates on whitening a single tooth. The only teeth whitening method that can be applied to is the teeth which lost its color and turned to yellow after root canal treatment, yet this should be performed after the tooth is completely healed.

The combined teeth whitening method is at least as popular as the other teeth whitening methods. In this treatment method, both home-type and office-type teeth whitening techniques are used, and it is accepted as a combination of both methods. This method, which is applied in the dentist's examination environment in the first stage and then in the patient's home environment, allows you to have white teeth in a short period of time such as 1 week. The planning and timing of the combined teeth whitening method is done by the joint decision of the patient and the physician.

If it is done by a specialist, the damage of the teeth whitening are negligible. Factors such as the amount and duration of usage of the tooth whitening gel, the determination of which tooth whitening technique is suitable for the patient, and the care after the whitening process are the factors that determine whether tooth whitening will harm the patient. As long as you get support from dentists specializing in teeth whitening in our clinic, it is possible to whiten your teeth in a short time without any pain, ache or any other side effects.
