Tooth whitening with bleaching

Bright teeth have an incredibly positive radiance. Since natural teeth are whitened in the process, bleaching is the most minimally invasive and cost-effective aesthetic treatment. 

How does bleaching work?

Tooth enamel is a porous, crystalline substance. Over the years, food color molecules accumulate in the pores, darkening the tooth. During whitening, a gel containing hydrogen peroxide is applied to the tooth. This soaks into the tooth surface and changes the stored color molecules so that they become invisible. As a result, the teeth are whitened again. 

Will the tooth substance be damaged during bleaching?

Many patients are afraid that the tooth substance will be damaged during bleaching. This is not the case with the techniques we use in our practice. There is no change to the tooth substance. Only the stored color molecules are changed. Caution is advised with whitening toothpastes. These do not lighten the teeth chemically, but contain abrasive particles that remove the topmost, most discolored layer of the tooth. Therefore, we advise against the use of such toothpastes. 

Is bleaching painful?

During bleaching, the teeth are kept dry by us. Teeth do not like this condition, which is why sensitivity may occur for a short time. This varies depending on the patient, but is always reversible. From our own experience we can say that teeth are usually slightly sensitive for about a day. 

How long does the result last? Do you always have to repeat bleaching?

There is no rebound or yo-yo effect with bleaching. Your teeth will darken depending on what environmental influences come into your mouth. Another factor here is the frequency. This leads to an individual, continuous darkening. Bleaching can be thought of as resetting a clock. The teeth are whitened, subsequently the darkening continues at the normal rate. Starting with a lighter color. How often you need to repeat the bleaching depends again on your desired color and your lifestyle. 

What about single, dark teeth?

If teeth are darkened due to an accident or root canal treatment, we recommend whitening them with a veneer. This is the most predictable solution in this case to achieve a good result.
