Teeth whitening consists in the clarification of stains and the discoloration of enamel and dentin. Gentle solutions are applied in this process with thin plastic applicators placed on the teeth. They are designed individually for each patient. During the decomposition of the active whitening gel component contained within the applicators, oxygen releases into the enamel and dentin in order to obtain the desired whitening process.
It is important to note that the structure of the teeth does not change during the course of the treatment, only the color of the teeth. This means that the bleaching obtained with this method, naturally performed under the care of a dentist, is completely safe for the teeth and gums. Many dentists consider it the safest of today’s dental cosmetic treatments.
No side effects due to whitening have been identified, although some patients complain of cold-sensitive teeth during treatment. These symptoms disappear within 1-3 days after discontinuation or abbreviation of the treatment.
However, we do not recommend teeth whitening to pregnant women and nursing mothers. There are no studies on possible side effects of the preparation on developing baby or maternal womb.
