Casos Tooth Whitening

After dental check-up, which includes x-rays, molds are made in order to make custom trays.

In the next appointment there’s one session of bleaching (with gel of high concentrations activated by light) and the trays and gel to use at home is provided (1 hour per day or to use during night) for a minimum of 2 weeks.

With this protocol not only we achieve a greater degree of bleaching but also stable results (when doing only one session at the clinic the results quickly revert)

Perguntas sobre Tooth Whitening

Can I drink coffee during bleaching?

In the two weeks of treatment you should avoid coffee, tea, red wine or any food that can stain in
your teeth. If you cannot do without coffee you should rinse your teeth immediately after drinking
it.

Does bleaching ruin your teeth?

No it doesn’t, but it can only be done by a dentist that first does a check up to look for cavities,
small fracture fractures, presence of tooth sensitivity that must be dealt with before starting the
treatment.

Does tooth whitening cause tooth sensitivity?

In some cases patients mention sensitivity while they are doing the treatment. This is due to the
fact that the tooth is slightly more porous during treatment and is reversible after it.
For this reason if you already suffer from sensitivity you’re not a good candidate for dental
bleaching because sensitivity will certainly rise and can be an issue.
From my experience sensitivity is less when you use the night product, for this reason it is my
favorite one.

I have some crowns, can I Whiten my teeth?

You can but you have to be aware that this treatment will have no effect on ceramics so the
crowns, veneers or bridges will not whiten.

How long does it take to see results and how long does the treatment last?

Usually you start to see results at the end of some days but you should do two or three weeks
treatment in order to attain an optimum result and mainly a lasting one. The less time the product
is in contact with your teeth the sooner it will revert to its original color.

IS Laser or Ultraviolet bleaching more effective?

From my experience, no. Patients like this kind of treatment a lot because it is very convenient and has quick results.

The Teeth Whiten, not as much as with the use of individual trays with gel, but the results last only about six month.

Can I use bleaching toothpaste?

I don’t like the so-called whitening toothpaste because many of these are very abrasive, brushing away stains but also tooth enamel which is extremely harmful. Don’t use them.
