Is it possible to whiten the teeth?
Tricks and truth about teeth whitening
Your teeth become darker as you get older. That’s just a fact of life. Using toothpaste and toothbrush will help to keep your teeth healthy and well, but advertisements for toothpaste promising ”whiter teeth” promise far too much.
It’s possible to buy strong abrasive and bleaching agents, especially on the Internet – but beware! This is definitely not without danger, and the worst case scenario is that by doing it yourself you end up damaging your teeth.
This has to be done by a specialist.
It is possible to whiten your teeth, but leave it to a specialist. Then you can be sure of the result without risking dangerous damage.
Teeth whitening with gel
In traditional whitening procedures, we make a mouth tray for the whitening gel, which you should wear at home, one hour a day, for 7–14 days. The effect lasts for 2–3 years, and there is no damage to the teeth. But it is quite a laborious process.
New effective laser treatment
The modern dental laser has revolutionised many treatments for the teeth and gums. It is effective, and doesn’t cause pain or discomfort.
Using lasers to whiten your teeth is very gentle to the teeth, and at the same time it is fast and effective. The entire procedure requires only one dental appointment of 1½ hours. It’s a bit more expensive, but the latest research shows that using lasers to whiten your teeth makes it last much longer.
