Treatment at the clinic or at home: It is carried out by using a gel with a whitening agent which is applied to the teeth by means of asplint made-to-measure for the patient tofit his/her teeth which is placed over them. The process is designed to be done at home in an easy, simple, and efficient manner. Normally the duration of the treatment ranges from 2 to 3 weeks, but this time may vary from patient to patient. It is a safe method for both teeth and gums and does not modify the structure of the tooth but merely lightens its colour.
The teeth will always become lighter than they were before, but if the cause of their darkening persists (coffee, tea, cigarettes) the treatment may have to be repeated periodically.
At the clinic:
We have a state-of-the-art Philips ZOOM lamp so as to carry out whitening with high aesthetic requirements. This is achieved by applying a gel with a higher concentration of whitening agent to the teeth and activating it with a cold-light Led lamp, which obtains a considerable whitening or “lightening” effect on the teeth. This part of the whitening is carried out at the dental surgery, involves no pain, and requires only 1 session.
Not only do we take the best of both techniques; we enhance the results. Firstly whitening is carried out at the clinic with a cold-light lamp and the process is completed at home. This technique has been shown to be the most efficient and that giving the most long-lasting results.
As notwo patients are alike we use personalised tooth whitening treatments at our clinic. There are many kinds of tooth whitening on the market with presentations in different concentrations, but not all of them are suitable for all patients. On occasion dental sensitivity becomes a problem when carrying out whitening in common with the appearance of various pathologies. Our team of professionals will therefore assess your case and advise you in accordance with your needs.
