Best way to whiten teeth
There are products that are offered in the market, which are supplied in a standard way and are not adjusted to the case of each patient. This can cause the result not to be regular, causing gingival irritation or other unwanted effects. Only the professional can provide a treatment tailored to each patient and report it correctly.
We must device this treatment as a medical process that must be performed under the supervision of a dentist, and only performed in the dental clinic. As in other treatments, at Crooke Marbella dental clinic we use the best option on the market, the Philips Zoom laser teeth whitening.
There are several options, a treatment in clinic, another that we can do at home supervised by the dentist, or the combination of both that would be the ideal to achieve a whiter and brighter smile.
Laser teeth whitening
This type of treatment is innovative and has achieved a big popularity as it allows you to achieve results of up to 10 shades whiter in just 90 minutes.
The first step we will do is protect the gums and lips, apply the whitening gel and put the LED light on the teeth. This gel will absorb light, which will intensify the results without damaging the structure of the teeth. The effect is still active for up to 24 hours, so you won’t see the final results on the same day. It is recommended that throughout the process you do not consume food or drink that can affect the color of your teeth, including cigarettes.
Laser teeth whitening is the fastest treatment, with immediate effects and following the guidelines that we set can last many years. It is also safe since we control the effects at all times and protect the soft tissues and the surroundings of the mouth.
Home teeth whitening
Whitening at home is done through splints tailored to the patient’s mouth (thus preventing damage to the gum) that are used with a specific gel based on carbamide peroxide. With our home whitening kit that we use in our clinic, 1-3 hours a day for 3-10 days is sufficient (depending on the whitening gel we select).
It is important that before performing teeth whitening, the gums are healthy and there are no cavities, since if not, we run the risk of aggravating a gum problem or generating pulpitis (inflammation of the nerve) in the teeth with caries. So whitening should always be done under the supervision of a dentist.
