What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that safely and effectively lightens discolored teeth and removes plaque and tartar deposits.

People who have an abnormal or disturbing color of their teeth due to smoking, certain foods, or medications may opt for bleaching or teeth whitening.

Dentists typically use a whitening gel with high levels of hydrogen peroxide. To avoid damaging dental tissues and ensure the whitening agent works precisely in the desired area, some specialists use lasers.

Laser teeth whitening is a professional procedure exclusively performed by qualified dentists in dental clinics.

Reasons to Have Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a very common dental procedure that many people opt for to enhance their smiles and achieve that brighter, white smile. Your dentist can recommend the best whitening method that suits your specific teeth condition in specific.

Unfortunately, there are several ways teeth can get discolored. For example, consuming drinks like coffee, tea, and red wine or smoking can cause surface stains. Additionally, tartar buildup and tiny cracks in the teeth can also lead to discoloration.

Although many beauty salons offer teeth whitening, doctors encourage patients to undergo this treatment in licensed dental clinics that employ dental professionals.

If a non-professional performs it, the treatment may put your oral health at risk. Therefore, you should visit a dentist or a regulated dental hygienist or dental therapist who can legally and professionally prescribe teeth whitening treatment.

In some cases, a dentist may recommend DIY teeth whitening kits, which are available in many drug stores. However, these kits may also carry risks and require adherence to many instructions.

The Procedure of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can be accomplished by different methods and techniques. In any case, the traditional steps of teeth whitening in Turkey include:

1. Use the retractor

Before a tooth whitening treatment, a cheek retractor will be inserted into your mouth to help expose all of the teeth that are visible when you smile.

2. Put the liquid rubber

Your doctor will cover your gum with a liquid rubber dam or hardening resin to protect against any irritation that can be caused by the bleaching gel.

3. Apply the gel

Next, a bleaching gel containing hydrogen peroxide will be applied to your teeth for a couple of minutes. The gel will then be washed off or suctioned, and fresh gel will be applied for one or more additional periods of about 15 to 30 minutes.

4. Remove the retractor

After the final gel application, the cheek retractors will be removed, and you will rinse your teeth.
