Teeth whitening at the clinic
Professional teeth whitening at the dental clinic is the quickest method of obtaining a Hollywood smile. At Implant-Art this procedure is performed by an experienced dentist, who begins the whole process by a thorough analysis of the condition of the patient’s teeth and determination of the colour shade of teeth which is possible to achieve. Performing the procedure of whitening is preceded by cleaning the teeth thoroughly using traditional methods (sand-blasting or scaling). Before teeth whitening the gingiva are protected against irritation with a special substance and then on the surface of the teeth the dentist applies a gel with high content of hydrogen peroxide and proceeds to expose the teeth to irradiation with a lamp. The whole procedure lasts about 45-60 minutes. UPatients who have strong discolouration on their teeth often have to repeat the procedure in order to obtain the desired effect.
After performing the procedure of teeth whitening the patient should go on a so-called white diet - for the period specified by the dentist. In this case it means that the patient should eat only white-coloured food and avoid products which could colour the teeth e.g. red wine, blueberries, citrus fruits. After the procedure the teeth may be hypersensitive to cold so we recommend that the patients should use special toothpaste which decreases that adverse effect.
