Tooth colour varies from person to person. Cigarette smoking, excessive tea, coffee and acidic beverage consumtion, the lack of sufficient attention to dental hygiene and care can lead to yellowing or staining of the teeth. In some cases, structural defects in the womb or in childhood, or continuous use of medication may also cause dental colour variations. Teeth whitening process is the expeditious and most economical procedure for all such cases.
At Akdeniz İnci Dental Clinic, we use two treatment methods for teeth whitening;
- Laser Teeth Whitening (In-Office Bleaching)
- Teeth Whitening at home (At-Home Bleaching)
Teeth whitening doesn't work on dentures, crowns, fillings or veneers.
No matter what treatment you use, there's a chance your gums will be sensitive to the chemicals used in teeth whitening, particularly if you already have sensitive teeth. In most cases the sensitivity is temporary. There's also a chance of burns to gums and some of the whitening kits used at home can harm tooth enamel. Overuse of whiteners can also damage the tooth enamel or gums, so be sure to follow directions and talk to your dentist.
