What are the Types of Teeth Whitening?

There are 5 types of teeth whitening methods according to the way they are applied, which method is decided by the dentist and the patient and in some cases more than one treatment can be used together.

In-Office Type Teeth Whitening Treatment

It is carried out professionally in a clinical setting under the supervision of a doctor. It is the most effective method of all whitening methods. The higher peroxide ratios of the whitening materials used during the operation make whitening faster. Its permanence is longer. Treatment can last 2-3 sessions, the number of sessions varies depending on the color change in the tooth.

Treatment Stages:

  1. Dental stone cleaning and Scaling Procedure are also applied on patients in order to make the treatment more effective before whitening is applied.
  2. Before and after the treatment session, photos are taken from the patients and color determination is made.
  3. Before the operation, the gums are closed with a protective barrier in order not to be damaged by whitening materials.
  4.  Then whitening gel is applied to the teeth. The whitening gel is activated using UV ray or laser.
  5. 2 or 3 periods of teeth whitening gel are applied in periods of about 15 minutes.

During the session intervals, the patient is asked to avoid coloring drinks such as tea, coffee and wine and is recommended to reduce smoking. During these whitening sessions, sensitivity may occur in the teeth, but this sensitivity is eliminated when special toothpastes are used.

At-Home Tooth Whitening Treatment

  1. Color determination is made by the doctor and then transparent plaques are designed that adapt to the teeth by taking dental measurements from the patient.
  2. In this treatment, whitening agents containing a lower percentage of carbamide peroxide are used.
  3. Transparent plaque designed with tubes containing whitening gel is given to the patient and the patient is informed about how to perform the application. According to the recommendations of the doctor, the procedure is applied 2 times a day for 2 weeks or only for a week or two while sleeping at night.
  4. Thanks to the weekly check-ups, the course of the treatment is monitored and changes are made when necessary.

Combined Tooth Whitening

In-Office type and At-Home tooth whitening methods are used together. These two methods are tried to achieve a better result by supporting each other. Patients who have been treated with office-type teeth whitening treatment are advised to support the whitening process with home-style teeth whitening after treatment.

Single Teeth Whitening Treatment

It is a whitening method that is less likely to create sensitivity in this context, which also repairs tooth enamel while whitening teeth. The whitening gel used in this method provides tissue supplements at the same time thanks to the tooth crystals called ‘nano-hydroxyapatite’. These crystals permanently remove pores, distortions and microcracks on the tooth surface. The only difference for the biological teeth whitening method, which has no difference as an application technique, is the content of the gel used.

Biological Teeth Whitening Treatment

It is a whitening method that is less likely to create sensitivity in this context, which also repairs tooth enamel while whitening teeth. The whitening gel used in this method provides tissue supplements at the same time thanks to the tooth crystals called ‘nano-hydroxyapatite’. These crystals permanently remove pores, distortions and microcracks on the tooth surface. The only difference for the biological teeth whitening method, which has no difference as an application technique, is the content of the gel used.
