HOW WHITE MY TEETH
LOOK LIKE AFTER WHITENING
There are individual variations since the color improvement depends on several factors
the cause of discoloration
the initial colour of the teeth
the cooperation during the home whitening treatment
the lifestyle after treatment (smoking, coffee consuming etc
Fortunately, discolouration caused by all of these factors responds extremely well to whitening treatment, which can leave your teeth many shades whiter. The extent of whitening may be different from person to person but often, it may be all that is required to help your smile shine again
WHAT KIND OF DISCOMFORT MAY I EXPERIENCE DURING WHITENING?
Sensitivity to cold is a common discomfort during tooth whitening. It usually disappears in a few hours. Sometimes may last until the next day. In these cases we recommend to avoid consuming cold or hot food and use a special sensitivity toothpaste and gel. A burning sensation of the gums and occasionally, a transient change of taste may occur although is very rare.
HOW DO I MAINTAIN THE SHADE AFTER THE COMPLETION OF MY TOOTH WHITENING?
To keep your white and bright smile for a long time you must:
- Avoid foods and drinks that contain strong coloring substances, eg coffee, red wine, etc.
- Do not smoke
- Brush your teeth 2 times a day
- Use interdental brushes and the toothpaste that we will recommend you
A simple whitening procedure can be repeated every 1 to 2 years to maintain the result.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE
The duration of treatment depends on the degree of discoloration, your cooperation and the method of whitening you will follow to bleach your teeth. Before whitening you always have to have a cleaning of the tartar built-ups and polish of your teeth so you can find the real color of your teeth shade with a special shade guide. Your dentist will also check for any hidden cavities that may cause a problem if not taken care before whitening. Then the dentist will take an impression of your teeth to send to the technician to prepare a set of custom- made whitening trays which are necessary for both in-office and at-home procedures.
