why is teeth whitening
Teeth whitening is a procedure that has gained increasing popularity over the last years. It is mainly due to impeccable smile being so fashionable among the biggest stars of show business. Teeth whitening is, against all appearances, a treatment not only for the high society – each of us deserves to be able to enjoy an impeccably looking smile and a much better mood!
Teeth whitening might seem like an unnecessary expense or a whim of many patients. However, do not treat this procedure in this way! Teeth whitening is beneficial in many ways. First of all, white, discoloration-free teeth are a sign that we care about our own health and what impression we make. Secondly, teeth whitening allows you to achieve previously unknown mental comfort and self-perception! You will notice how much more willingly and more often you smile with snow-white teeth. We strongly recommend trying this procedure at least once.
light-accelerated tooth whitening
Teeth whitening method BEYOND ™ is a one-time treatment consisting of applying a special whitening gel to the surface of the teeth, and then activating it by the light of the accelerator. The whitening gel, under the influence of light from the accelerator, increases the speed of whitening gel going through the enamel to the dentine. The light emitted by the accelerator significantly speeds up the tooth whitening process. This results in white, shiny teeth. The whole procedure takes about 45 minutes, but its length may vary depending on the case.
BEYOND ™ treatment is completely safe and performed by a dentist. Teeth after whitening do not become “more absorbent” for colouring substances, and the permanence of the procedure depends to a great extent on the patient’s lifestyle. The effect remains visible for an average of 2 years.
Beyond Bleaching Accelerator, together with whitening sets, make the discoloration on the teeth immediately oxidized – both on their surface and deep inside the dentin. Our specially designed gel is activated by high-power light with a wavelength of 480nm to 520nm emitted by the Accelerator. The whole process removes discoloration that has accumulated over many years – all in just 30 minutes. Special ingredients in our preparations will make your teeth beautiful and shiny. The treatment is comfortable, safe and effective, and the average change of the colour is over 8 shades.
teeth whitening trays
Teeth whitening trays are an alternative way to achieve the desired appearance of the teeth, with the main difference being that patient can do it alone, at the comfort of their home.
After assessing the condition of the teeth and removal of accumulated plaque, it becomes possible to make impressions of the dental arches used to create two individually adapted trays on the teeth. At the next visit, once they have been made, the patient will check their fit and, if it is correct, will receive syringes for applying the whitening solution. It should be applied to the inside of the cover, and the set prepared in this way is placed on a dental arch. Most often, such teeth whitening is carried out for a period of 2 to 4 weeks. The longer duration of home therapy as compared to traditional whitening is caused by the weaker strength of the whitening solution.
medical recommendations after teeth whitening
Following the recommendations after the whitening procedure play an extremely important role in preserving the results obtained.
For about two hours after the procedure, one should not eat anything, and if you are thirsty – drink only water. For the next 48 hours, you should not consume any colouring products – this is due to the fact that the teeth are slightly dehydrated during this time and therefore susceptible to the absorption of dyes from consumed foods.
Patients during should absolutely avoid:
- Coffee and tea
- Fruit Juices
- Red wine
- Fruit (special attention should be given to blackberries, raspberries or blueberries)
- Vegetables such as carrots, beets, peppers and red cabbage
- Highly colouring spices, such as curry, turmeric, cinnamon and paprika
- Chocolate and other products that contain cocoa
- Hard cheese
