Make an Appointment
Aesthetics play a more important role every day. Having a beautiful smile makes us gain segurity and self-confidence.
At Clínica Dental Anfruns, we understand that dental aesthetics are very subjective and personal, that is why we always collaborate with the patient to fulfill its wishes and expectations.
Teeth whitening is an aesthetic dental treatment that reduces the original color of the teeth by several shades. In addition, it allows to recover the natural color that may have been lost over the years, leaving the teeth whiter and brighter.
Before doing a teeth whitening it is important to visit the dentist so he can diagnose the cause of the staining. It is also advisable to have oral hygiene, to clean the mouth well and to take full advantage of the treatment so that beautiful white teeth can be achieved.
White intensity and duration
The results are related to the natural white color of teeth, and this is what we seek to recover. Regardless of the types of teeth whitening that are practiced.
The duration will depend on the different factors, such as staining capacity of the food we eat.
Stages of treatment
Start of treatment
To begin, it is to be determined if the patient is a good candidate for treatment. Treatment will not be performed on patients suffering from some pathologies.
In the event that there are abnormalities such as cavities, they will be resolved before starting treatment.
Then, the patient’s mouth is cleaned. This way it is ready for whitening. It will remove germs, tartar, stains on teeth, plaque …
The dental splints that the patient will use at home will then be created.
In this phase of the treatment, which usually lasts about an hour, the whitening gel is applied to the patient. This gel is carefully applied protecting gums, eyes, skin and oral mucosa.
There are several phases of about 15 minutes, as the dentist believes appropriate, and finally the elements of the patient’s mouth are cleaned.
Once the patient has done the treatment in the aesthetic clinic, dental splints will be given, which should be used for the next 15 days.
From then, the treatment is followed at home, applying the gel for the time recommended by the dentist. The ideal time to use the splint is after dinner, once the mouth is sanitized.
Visit for review
Once the treatment is finished, one last visit is required. In it, the dentist will control the result.
Pain in teeth whitening?
No pain is experienced in the treatment, since using the gel protects gums, eyes, skin and oral mucous membranes, so that it will only deal with the tooth.
However, symptoms of tooth sensitivity, or irritations on the palate, may disappear after a few days.
