Teeth Whitening

Healthy and white teeth are very important for a beautiful and effective smile. However, in some cases, structural defects, antibiotics used as a child or in the womb, the amount of fluoride in food, drink and drinking water cause discoloration in old dentures, veneers, fillings and old age teeth. Teeth whitening is the process of lightening the enamel layer, which has changed color and yellowed for various reasons, and removing the discoloration. 

Everything we eat and drink, which contains colorants, darkens our tooth surface over time. In this way, instead of having a porcelain coating on the teeth that have darkened or turned yellow, a permanent teeth whitening method, also known as bleaching, can be applied. As a result of this process, depending on the condition of your teeth, 8-10 tons are opened. Teeth whitening is the application of specially prepared gel on the teeth and accelerated with the help of a light source or laser.

Two types of discoloration are generally seen in the teeth. The first is the internal coloration, the second is the external coloration. Internal discoloration includes stains that penetrate the tooth and cannot be removed by brushing. In external discoloration, it is the coloration that adheres to the tooth surface from coloring foods such as cigarettes, cola, coffee. In both discolorations, the teeth whitening process, that is, the Bleaching process, results very successfully.
