Teeth whitening is a procedure that can be performed on healthy and natural teeth. There are two types of bleaching: home type and in-office type.
In home type bleaching, the patient’s measurements are taken and thin plates are prepared. Low concentration peroxide gels are placed inside these plates. It is tried to keep the plaques in the mouth during the night. It is applied for 1 week. It is requested to stay away from colored liquids and cigarettes for a few days after the application period.
Another type of whitening is in-office bleaching. Again, in a mouth of healthy teeth, a gingival barrier is applied to protect the gums. Then gels containing high peroxide are applied on the teeth and whitening is performed. This process is performed in 2-3 sessions. Each session is 15 minutes. Colored liquids and dyed tobacco such as cigarettes are avoided for 3-4 days.
