Dental Teeth Bleaching


Dental bleaching (teeth whitening) is the whitening process applied to make the teeth whiter and apparently more beautiful. It can lighten the color of yellow teeth, which have lost their natural color, by several tones.

Common causes of teeth whitening include residues that are placed in the lower layers of tooth enamel due to drinks and snacks, yellowing due to smoking, and fillers.


Teeth Whitening: Procedures

There are two main procedures in the field of teeth whitening, depending on the application difference.

  • • Power Bleaching: It is known as office-type teeth whitening. Its application takes place with the help of a whitening gel and a special light. It is a fast and effective method that can whiten teeth up to 3-4 tons in a short time.

  • • Home Bleaching: First, an oral measurement is taken. It is a whitening process using gels in plastic mouthpieces that are specialized for each patient. The targeted level is reached in about 1 week. It is necessary to wear it for an average of 5-7 hours a day. This time may vary depending on the color and gel.

Teeth Whitening: Care

A patient who has applied teeth whitening should first be examined by a specialist 2 or 3 times. The dentist takes an impression of the teeth to make a mouth guard, then tells the patient how to use it with the whitening gel.

The patient needs to use the mouth guard and whitening gel regularly for several weeks. Some whitening gels can be effective for up to 8 hours at a time, which can shorten the treatment schedule.

The results obtained with the teeth whitening process may vary depending on the tooth structure of the person. Its effects last between 6 months and 2 years on average. Of course, this period depends on how well the person adheres to the measures for care. The patient should avoid substances that discolor the teeth during whitening and for at least two weeks after the procedure.

It is also recommended to avoid acidic and tannin-containing foods and drinks. For example:

  • • Coffee,
  • • Black tea,
  • • Wine,
  • • Fizzy drinks (especially dark and light-colored ones)
  • • Fruits,
  • • Some sauces.
Almost all whitening gels cause a certain degree of sensitivity in the teeth. This sensitivity can cause some discomfort while drinking very cold or very hot drinks. It is a natural side effect of the application.
The result obtained with teeth whitening varies depending on the mouth structure and the aftercare. It can be said that the effects are preserved for up to 2 years with good care.
Anyone who does not have a prior chronic dental or gum problem can get teeth whitening after a wide dental examination.
Dental bleaching is generally considered safe when done under the supervision of a dentist. However, some people may experience sensitivity or irritation to the gums or teeth during the process.
Teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic procedure and is usually not covered by insurance. Health insurance usually covers medically necessary procedures such as preventive care, fillings, and root canals. However, there may be exceptions in some cases. For example, if discoloration or staining is caused by a medical condition or medication, teeth whitening treatment may be considered medically necessary and covered by insurance.
Dental bleaching can be done in-office or at home using custom-made trays. In-office bleaching involves applying a strong bleaching agent to the teeth under the supervision of a dentist, while at-home bleaching involves using a milder bleaching agent in custom-made trays for several hours a day for some time.
