Teeth whitening – Why should you do it?

teeth whitening

White teeth are a reflection of health. So, why we perform teeth whitening?

Healthy, shiny teeth raise self-confidence and satisfaction with our own lives, and our beautiful white teeth will be shown with laughter. Unfortunately, as years go by, we laugh less and the teeth are shining. Color changes of your teeth are something we can not avoid or prevent. Reasons for changing colors are really many, and generally, our bad habits make it worse.

The whiteness and glow of the teeth give dental enamel that is extremely firm but not indestructible. Over the years, it is consumed and becomes evergreen, and its ability to penetrate natural light allows penetration of natural dentine color outward. In this way, the teeth become darker over the years, ie they get a shade of yellow or gray.

In addition to wearing, enamel is susceptible to fever, ie, over the years, in the dental enamel, millions of microfractures are formed in which microparticles are consumed by food and drink consumption. If we often eat dark colored drinks such as coffee, tea or black wine; Dyeing will be more intense and the teeth will lose their natural color faster. In addition to taming the complete tooth, it is possible to appear stain or fleck if the particles enter the space between the enamel and the dentine.

Modern methods of teeth whitening

Modern dentistry allows us to return some of the whiteness of the teeth by whitening. There are different home tooth whitening kits, but it is certainly the most effective whitening method of one experienced by a seasoned dentist.

The most common methods of teeth whitening are:

  • ZOOM! lamp – the procedure lasts 30 to 60 minutes depending on the number of repetitions of the treatment. Prior to the procedure, the dentist will clean the teeth from lime and plaque. Then apply a thin layer of special gel to your teeth and treat your teeth with ZOOM! with a light bulb for 10 to 15 minutes. This procedure is repeated 3 to 4 times depending on the result. By applying ZOOM! The teeth lamps become lighter on average for 8 shades.
  • Sandblasting – Sandblasting is a very good method of teeth whitening, but much less effective than ZOOM! lamps. The procedure is completely harmless to the dental enamel.
  • Home whitening kits – a variety of home whitening kits are available on the market, but it is very important to emphasize that not all are equally effective and may not be able to achieve the desired result. It is certainly necessary to consult a dentist before using the product.
  • Dental bleaching pills – although useful in maintaining the whiteness of the teeth – very rarely will it really bite the teeth unless some bad habits change.

Regardless of which teeth whitening method you choose, it is certainly necessary to consult your dentist before and make regular cleaning of dental plaque for a more successful procedure. It is important to know that whitening by any of the above methods will not have the same effect for all patients.
