Tooth whitening remains one of the most popular treatments of the modern esthetic stomatology. It is highly-valued by men and women alike.
We offer top quality tooth whitening with one of these two methods: the overlays method or the Beyond accelerator method.
The overlays method:
In this treatment a patient is provided with a special bleaching gel and a set of individually selected overlays. The patient is expected to put on overlays by himself on top of the gel (i.e. the gel must be put on the teeth first) and wear them overnights for somewhere between 5 to 14 nights. The effects of this treatment usually last for a few years.
The Beyond accelerator method:
This is a one-time treatment. It consists of putting a special bleaching gel on teeth and then activating its chemical reaction with the dental surfaces through the use of a blue light lamp named the Beyond accelerator. This treatment lasts about 30 to 60 minutes and helps to whiten teeth by a few shades in the Vita scale.
Dead tooth whitening:
Bleaching from the inside is a way of whitening root canal-treated teeth and teeth which changed color due to an injury or for some unknown reason. In such cases a bleaching agent is inserted into a tooth itself. However, dead teeth require to be properly root-canal treated before they can be whitened. Depending on the intended results dead tooth whitening can be repeated 2 to 3 times.
The effects of whitening usually last 2 to 3 years. However, this is largely dependant on individual patient characteristics, proper oral hygiene maintenance as well as nutritional habits.
