Teeth whitening is a procedure that should be applied by dentists to obtain a whiter appearance on teeth against discoloration and staining. It is possible to achieve a long-lasting whitening effect with good oral care.
How is Teeth Whitening Done?
Teeth whitening is a simple process using whitening gel products (containing hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). The gel applied breaks up the stains and makes the teeth appear whiter. Laser can also be used in the whitening process. This process takes about 1 hour.
After Teeth Whitening Procedure
Especially in the first weeks, consuming foods such as tea, coffee, acidic beverages, and using tobacco products should be avoided. In particular, care should be taken not to consume dark-colored foods and sauces that can change the color of the teeth. Otherwise, the whitening effect may not last long and tooth stains may be seen.
