  • What do we need to know about teeth whitening?
    Spring is knocking at the door, and summer already seems like a dream come true. With it comes the time for the sea, as well as the hustle and bustle around the appearance, which in winter was a bit neglected. More frequent visits to gyms and beauty salons begin. Everyone wants a tight body, a bronze complexion and a sparkling white smile. Have you ever thought that the stronger the complexion, the whiter the teeth look? That's why it seems to us that all people with black skin have super white teeth . This is an optical illusion due to the strong contrast between the skin and the teeth. To have white teeth, you do not need to fry in the sun or stay out of the solarium. All we have to do is go to our dentist and tell him we want white teeth or trust teeth whitening systems at home. Some dentists will try to dissuade you from how harmful this is, who for one reason or another do not accept the news. They can not believe that modern bleaching with appropriate and quality materials is harmless. If your dentist is from this group, just go to a colleague, but never resort to your grandmother's whitening methods such as rubbing your teeth with salt or soda. In these cases, it is very possible not only not to whiten your teeth, but to really damage them. It's best for your dentist to determine which type of whitening is best for you. You know that not all teeth are the same. There are sensitive, normal, problem gums , thin enamel, tartar and more. Teeth whitening can help you not only get a bright smile, but also get rid of some stains and stains on teeth. What is bleaching? Bleaching is a cosmetic procedure in which oxygen free radicals from active substances (most often urea peroxide, hydroxyperoxide) carry out oxidation, and thus discoloration of various deposits in tooth enamel. This restores the white color of the teeth. The final effect of bleaching is influenced by many factors - the degree of coloring, the percentage of active ingredient, the use of light to speed up the process, etc. Does teeth whitening hurt? Bleaching agents do not destroy tooth enamel in any way, but only extract organic dyes from enamel and dentin. This does not damage the structure of the tooth in any way, especially if the instructions are followed! There are two main ways to whiten, depending on whether it's done in the office (clinically) or at home (home) . The difference between the two types is the concentration of the whitening gel that is used, hence the difference in the duration of the procedure. Clinical whitening uses agents with very high concentrations and this allows us to achieve the desired effect with one or two visits to the dentist's office, each lasting about an hour and a half. The dentist insulates the oral mucosa (gums, lips) so that there is no risk of getting gel on them, and within about an hour several times applies a whitening gel on the teeth, which depending on the brand - is activated in different ways (chemically or by lamp). This whitening is suitable in cases where we need a quick effect. The side effects are many - from severe toothache when drinking water and eating, to caries. For home whitening within 20 minutes with Lamp kit or 30 minutes to 1 hour with teeth whitening strips you achieve not so fast, but on the other hand, keeping the teeth completely healthy. Most often, about 10-14 procedures are enough to achieve the desired effect. If necessary, more procedures can be performed, not necessarily on consecutive days. With this whitening, the results are achieved more slowly and gradually, but you have no side effects, sensitivity in the teeth, bleeding gums and do not disrupt your diet. It is advisable to clean tartar and plaque before teeth whitening for better results. Register the original tooth color so that a comparison can be made and the result can be seen. During home teeth whitening it is advisable to avoid foods and beverages rich in dyes, as well as smoking for about 1 hour. Teeth may become temporarily more sensitive (mostly from the cold), sometimes feel numb, or feel warmed by the lamp. After completion of the procedures, normal sensitivity is restored. For people with more sensitive teeth, there is an option to additionally use means to reduce their sensitivity. Very good results can be achieved by combining toothpaste to maintain white teeth with home whitening. How long-lasting are the results? Bleaching is a procedure with a long-lasting effect. Teeth are constantly exposed to staining factors such as cigarettes, coffee, red wine, soy sauce. The more intensive their use and the lower the hygiene of the oral cavity, the sooner the teeth will start to darken again. Once every 3 to 5 months, it is advisable to do refreshing procedures to maintain color. Why whiten our teeth? It all starts with your smile! A new smile can change your life, and white teeth are a symbol of health and well-being. Your smile plays an important role in how you perceive yourself, as well as in the impression you make on the people around you. Research shows that more than any other physical characteristic such as eyes, hair and body, a smile is what both men and women find most attractive in humans. If you have a charming smile, it opens the door to a better life. On the other hand, if you are unhappy with your smile, this may be the reason you may not be able to fully enjoy life and its possibilities. Probably tidier teeth will make you feel more confident in your work, and brighter and whiter teeth will move your personal life. If you're not completely happy with your smile, maybe it's time to get a new one.
