Teeth Whitening / Dental Bleaching

As with the items we use daily; our clothes, even our hands and bodies, it is common for our teeth to become unclean. Our teeth can become stained by a variety of meals, beverages, and other factors. Alcohol, cigarettes, chocolate, cola, sauces of various hues, vinegar, dark foods, and meals containing food coloring are some of these… These factors can stain and yellow the teeth after a while. Even though you have taken every precaution for yellowing teeth, your teeth may turn yellow. Fortunately, there are advanced teeth whitening treatments to remove such yellowing in Turkey.

One of the most conservative and cost-effective dental treatments for discolored teeth in cosmetic dentistry is dental bleaching. It is best suited for people with healthy, unrestored teeth and gums. Tooth whitening will not completely change the color of your teeth, but it will lighten the existing shade. Hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide are the bleaching agents that are used currently.

The peroxide oxidizing agent penetrates the enamel’s porosities and breaks down the stain. Compared to brownish-colored teeth, yellow teeth react better to whitening. Gray/purple or tetracycline stains are more challenging to remove and may require prolonged bleaching. If you smoke, consume, or drink products that discolor teeth, the impact will likely not stay as long. There are numerous causes for yellowing and discoloration of teeth. Though aging is a major factor, smoking, certain foods, coffee, tea, antibiotics, and other factors can also cause teeth to discolor. However, bleaching is an excellent method for restoring the whiteness of discolored and yellowed teeth.

A patient must be free of any oral problems, such as tooth decay, gingivitis, or periodontitis, before starting teeth whitening. Also, teeth should not be sensitive, fractured, or damaged.

Prior to teeth whitening, these conditions should be properly evaluated and treated to prevent additional aggravation and interference with the process. A thorough dental examination must come first before beginning any teeth-whitening procedures. Before beginning the teeth whitening procedure, a dentist and a dental hygienist can help identify and cure any issues with the teeth, gums, and mouth.

There are two methods for bleaching teeth: at-home bleaching and in-Office bleaching. In general, both procedures have been found to be effective; however, results may vary depending on stain kind, patient age, bleaching agent concentration, treatment time, and frequency. In-office bleaching involves 30% to 45% peroxide, while bleaching at home contains 3% to 15% peroxide. In office dental bleaching is performed by a dentist. The bleaching agent is significantly more powerful than home bleaching agents. Light, heat, or a mix of the two can be used to accelerate the bleaching process.

Bleaching can be completed in approximately 20 minutes to one hour during a single visit. The home bleaching agents can be obtained over-the-counter or from a dentist. Whitening toothpaste, mouthwashes, strips and gels, and tray-based tooth bleaching can be used to whiten teeth. They are more affordable. A tray-based tooth bleaching system consists of a mouth guard containing a gel whitening solution. A few hours of using the mouthguard during the day or night will offer you with pearlywhite teeth. Your dentist will recommend how long you should use and how much Gel you should put in the tray-based tooth whitening system.

Sensitivity is a common problem that typically affects people with weak enamel. Sometimes, bleaching agent can also result in sensitivity. To avoid this issue, have a professional dentist whiten your teeth in a clinic. While whitening teeth, It is necessary to isolate the gum. If this is not performed, Gum irritation will occur.

The process of whitening involves numerous common steps, including:

  • Before starting, the doctor records your current tooth shade.
  • The next step would be to clean your teeth with pumice, a coarse material intended to get rid of any surface-level plaque.
  • To keep your teeth dry, gauze will be used to isolate your mouth.
  • Next, a whitening agent will be applied to the teeth’s front surfaces exclusively. As a bleaching agent, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is frequently used in the solution.
  • For many whitening products, activating the peroxide requires the use of a curing light or laser. Depending on the brand, the solution should be applied and left on the teeth for 30 to 60 minutes, or occasionally reapplied.
  • The teeth will be rinsed once the ideal shade had been achieved (or the maximum amount of time had expired). Any tooth sensitivity may be reduced with the application of fluoride.
  • More visits might be necessary until the ideal shade is achieved.

ICON resin infiltration treatments are generally much less invasive and expensive than tooth fillings or dental veneers. They can also be performed at a sooner stage in tooth growth where dental veneers need to wait until tooth growth is fully completed.

Additionally, untreated hypo spots usually look worse with any sort of teeth whitening or teeth bleaching treatment, where hypo spots treated with ICON resin infiltration will take on the same color as the other teeth after teeth whitening procedures.

It varies from person to person. Typically, bleaching lasts between a few months and a few years, depending on the color of your teeth, your diet, and your health behaviours. We typically recommend home bleaching after in-office bleaching to protect whiteness.

Factors such as the technique to be used, the condition of the teeth, and the number of sessions required determine the prices of teeth whitening treatment. The most accurate pricing information for this treatment can be given after the patient undergoes a thorough examination.

Dentists are always searching for new and improved methods to help their patients. Icon resin infiltration permits minimally invasive treatment of post-orthodontic white spot lesions, making it the ideal alternative to composite veneer restorations.

Its optical properties are comparable to those of natural enamel, so it matches the tooth’s natural color.  Icon resin infiltration is a minimally invasive treatment for post-ortho white-spot lesions and certain congenital hypo-calcified enamel lesions. These “spots” are caused by a cyclical imbalance between demineralization and remineralization of the enamel, which is typically the result of poor oral hygiene. Over time, the associated plaque, bacteria, and acids develop and lead to lesions because remineralization at the tooth’s outer surface reduces calcium and other ion access to the enamel’s deeper portions The subsurface of the demineralized enamel scatters light, causing the teeth to appear white. 

The Icon resin infiltration procedure is minimally invasive and can be completed in a single visit. There are no injections or numbing because the procedure is painless.  This entire procedure requires between 45 minutes and 1 hour to complete.

ICON resin infiltration is regarded as a long-term treatment that can last between two and six years or longer. It does not require re-treatment as frequently as other teeth whitening products.
