PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING

A snow white smile has always been considered a sign of good health, but few people know that that doesn’t mean the teeth are in good shape.

 Until recently, only movie stars and wealthy people could afford teeth whitening procedures, but today anybody can get their teeth whitened even in the comfort of their own home. The new techniques have become so popular that one in four people have thought about getting their teeth whitened.

            Different types of professional teeth whitening.

      1. Chemical

 There are two types - professional whitening and home kits.

 Professional teeth whitening is carried out only in a dental office, as the chemicals are highly concentrated. Two to three sessions lasting 30 minutes are sufficient, and your teeth will be 1-2 shades lighter.

 The principle of chemical whitening gel is based on the penetration of hydrogen peroxide into the enamel, via an activator (heat, ultraviolet light or laser beam) that initiates the decay of H2O2 to oxygen and other active substances, creating a whitening effect.

Home whitening involves applying a special gel mouthguard made in a dental laboratory from casts of the patient’s teeth. The difference is only in the concentration of the gel, which is much lower because home kits lack ways to isolate the mucous membrane of the mouth and there’s a higher probability that the patient can burn themselves.

 The biggest disadvantage of chemical whitening is that enamel microstructure can be damaged, and as a result, it loses its protective properties, teeth become sensitive, and abusing this procedure will lead to you needing dentures.

     2. Laser teeth whitening

 This is one of the most expensive and most effective ways of whitening teeth.

 It differs from the others because the whitening gel activator in this case, is a laser. A positive aspect is that the laser makes it possible to control the intensity of the whitening for different parts of the tooth. The laser beam releases active oxygen molecules, which penetrate the enamel and eliminate unwanted pigment. The procedure lasts about 30 minutes.

Laser teeth whitening is contraindicated in cases of:

1. Erosion of enamel.

2. Inflammatory diseases of the oral mucosa.

3. Pregnancy and lactation.

4. The presence of old fillings.

     3. Light activated whitening

This is a very common method for whitening teeth and is carried out only in dental offices.

 The essence of the method is to apply gel after a regular teeth cleaning and activating it with a halogen lamp.

The procedure is performed three times in 20 minute sessions. The teeth can become 8-10 shades lighter, but afterwards, like with other methods, it’s important to adhere to a certain "colorless" diet, otherwise your white smile can turn into a very ugly sight.

     4. Airflow whitening

 This technique is another way to professionally whiten teeth. Using a special machine, a special mixture of pressurized soda water is directed towards the teeth, achieving a whitening effect. But it is worth noting that this technique removes only the outer coating of the tooth, without penetrating through the enamel. If the shade is caused by genetic factors, don’t have high expectations for this procedure.

PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING

Airflow whitening is recommended every six months because no aggressive substances are used. The procedure is the mildest there is.

 Summarizing all the above, we can say that regular dental hygiene, combined with proper whitening will give you a perfect smile that will delight you and others.

        А чем можно отбеливать дома? Есть хорошие способы? Конечно, эффект будет не как в клинике, но хоть что-то. Пробовала разные зубные пасты и порошки, не помогает. Заранее спасибо.

        And how can you whiten at home? There are good ways? Of course, the effect is not as in the clinic, but at least something. Tried different toothpastes and powders, does not help. Thanks in advance.

          Интересно, спасибо. А что Вы скажете насчёт отбеливания дома? Какое вещество помогает отбеливать, потому что некоторые отбеливающие зубные пасты как будто ничем не отличаются от обычной пасты мы привыкли использовать, а стоят на порядок дороже!

          Interestingly, thank you. What do You think about bleaching at home? What substance helps whiten because some whitening toothpastes as if no different from the usual pasta we used to use, and are much more expensive!

            Отбеливание зубов в домашних условиях очень распространенное в наше время, однако перед тем, как его делать, нужно обязательно проконсультироваться с врачом-стоматологом, иначе можно только навредить своим зубам. Вещество, которое создает отбеливающий эффект,- это перекись водорода. При неправильной концентрации она может привести к ожогу слизистой оболочки. Если взвесить все плюсы и минусы домашнего отбеливания зубов, то моя рекомендация Вам - сделайте профессиональное отбеливание в стоматологическом кабинете, там работают врачи, которые с минимальным вредом сделают Ваши зубы идеальными. На счет зубных паст, в отбеливающие пасты добавляют большое количество абразива (вещества, которое царапает эмаль). В то время, как в обычных пастах - его количество минимально.

            Teeth whitening at home very common in our time, however, how to do, you should consult with a dentist, otherwise you can only harm your teeth. Substance, which creates a whitening effect is hydrogen peroxide. At wrong concentrations it can cause burns to the mucous membranes. If you weigh all the pros and cons of home teeth whitening, then my recommendation to You - make professional bleaching in a dental office, they have doctors that minimal harm will make Your teeth perfect. On account of toothpastes, whitening toothpaste adds a large number of abrasive (a substance that scratches the enamel). In that time, as in conventional toothpastes - its amount is minimal.
