Why Teeth Whitening Treatment

Teeth can lose their natural brightness and white color due to various factors, such as aging, tobacco use, consumption of staining drinks and foods, or certain medications. Yellow-colored teeth can significantly impact the appearance of a smile, affecting its overall beauty.

In Turkey, teeth whitening or bleaching procedures have become increasingly popular as people seek to restore their teeth's original brightness. With the growing demand for teeth whitening, there is a wide variety of products available in the market, each claiming to bring back the white color. This extensive range of products can often lead to confusion for many individuals when trying to choose the right one.

What is teeth whitening procedure?

Teeth whitening procedures involve using bleaching products that contain either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These bleaches break down stains into smaller pieces, resulting in brighter-looking teeth.

There are various teeth whitening options available in dental clinics. However, it is best to consult with your dentist to determine the most appropriate method for you.

In-office bleaching: The dentist applies the whitening gel directly to your teeth and may use heat, special light, or laser to enhance the process. To protect your gums, a rubber shield or protective gel is used. In-office bleaching provides quick and effective results due to the use of strong bleaching agents. Satisfying results may be achieved in one visit, but additional visits may be needed for more significant results.

Home bleaching from your dentist: Your dentist can provide a custom-made tray and bleaching gel for you to use at home. The dentist will instruct you on the amount of whitening gel to apply and the duration of application. This method may take a few days to a few weeks to show desired results.

Over-the-counter whitening products: There are many teeth whitening products available online or in grocery shops. If you choose to try these products, it's essential to consult your dentist for a recommendation on an effective option. Over-the-counter products generally have lower bleaching agent concentrations and may not be as effective as in-office whitening.

Is whitening suitable for everyone?

While teeth whitening is generally safe, it may not be suitable for everyone. It may not be recommended for patients under the age of 16, pregnant and lactating women, individuals with sensitive teeth or gum disease, or those with decay, exposed roots, or worn enamel (as it may cause sensitivity). Additionally, teeth whitening has no effect on fillings, crowns, veneers, and other dental restorations.
