Currently, teeth whitening is one of the most demanded treatments in dental aesthetics. Your smile can look perfect with the use of proper teeth whiteners in the hands of professionals. Teeth whitening is an aesthetic treatment that manages to reduce the original color of the teeth by several shades, resulting in whiter and brighter teeth.
The stains on the teeth can appear due to intrinsic causes in the formation of the tooth, the use of antibiotics, congenital stains or the excessive absorption of fluoride. Colorations can also be produced by beverages such as coffee, wine or tea, tobacco, etc.
You can get the best teeth whitening at our clinic, Bruno Negri Integral Dental Clinic, by professionals backed by years of experience and recommended by our patients.
To whiten teeth, specific products are used that produce a chemical reaction on the surface of the tooth, removing surface stains and making the tooth appear whiter. These reactions are produced by hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide gels, which are activated in contact with the tooth. We can enhance its effect with ultraviolet lamps to achieve a faster and more powerful action.
Sometimes, people look for at-home alternatives such as teeth whitening kits that are sold in pharmacies, but it is very important to know that teeth whitening products are very aggressive, and misuse of them can damage the enamel or generate sensitivity in the teeth. In addition, over-the-counter whitening products do not show the efficacy of the products that we use in our clinic approved by the Ministry of Health and the FDA.
At Bruno Negri Integral Dental Clinic, our specialists will assess whether it is appropriate to perform teeth whitening with a splint and a whitening gel specifically adapted to them.
There are different types of teeth whitening. As with other aesthetic dental treatments, before performing teeth whitening, we must have a healthy mouth, without problems of cavities, gums, periodontics or other oral diseases. The most effective and currently demanded is laser or photoactivation teeth whitening, which is the simplest, fastest and safest way. Teeth whitening with LED light causes less discomfort in terms of dental sensitivity. This treatment is usually combined with a teeth whitening kit that the patient uses at home with a custom-made whitening tray. These types of teeth whitening are external, but internal whitening techniques are also used. When a tooth devitalized by a root canal has darkened, we perform tooth whitening on that specific piece. We carry out this type of aesthetic dental treatment at Bruno Negri Integral Dental Clinic in several sessions and they are totally painless.
