Update on the practice of teeth whitening- Laser Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is done at the patient’s explicit request after checking and explained under what circumstances is not recommended:

Teeth whitening is a procedure where the results do not last forever, but they can last for about 6 to 12 months. For this reason, to keep your teeth whitened; this should be repeated at least once a year. In dental practices, the procedure in most cases is done fast and is very aggressive to the tooth enamel with chemical products (gel) of high concentration. This often results in the patient of sensitive teeth problems in the early days and sometimes even in the first weeks after having done.

The discoloration of the teeth is the most common reason why patients call on their dentist. This occurs naturally with age and can be caused by various factors such as:

  • – Frequent consumption of tobacco, coffee, and tea.
  • – Certain medicines prescribed in the context of a root canal treatment
  • – The presence of necrosis in the pulp
  • – Taking tetracycline-based antibiotics
  • – Excessive Fluoride concentration in drinking water

Bleaching is a technique of beautifying the smile aimed at lightening teeth and which has recently gained popularity. There are a large number of techniques, two of which are fundamental:

  • -the professional teeth whitening, practiced by a dentist in a dental office.
  • Teeth whitening done at home carried out by the patient at his home without the supervision of the dentist.

Laser teeth whitening is a surgical technique that has gained great popularity in recent years. The gel used as an active ingredient for bleaching consists of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The laser acts as a catalyst in the gel causing a reaction to the surface of the tooth and releasing air with the aid of certain wavelengths of free radicals of oxygen. Thus, the laser is used to stimulate the action of the gel and make it more efficient. The combination of the two components, a significant source of energy and, on the other hand, the thick gel in whitening agents, brings together all the criteria required to achieve success.
