Teeth Whitening (Bleaching) in Turkey

If you don’t have much time for a dental veneer treatment in Turkey (although it lasts only five days) or want to make a slight color change on your smile and see how it looks, you might consider teeth whitening.

As you age, your teeth can be stained and discolored due to various causes. Factors such as genetics, eating habits, some medications can cause stains on your teeth. Smoking is another factor that causes discoloration, so smokers mostly need teeth whitening treatments. On the other hand, there are many dental solutions you can use for whitening your natural teeth. Over-the-counter products, professional at-home teeth whitening kits, LED teeth whitening, and laser teeth whitening are among the available solutions.

At-home teeth whitening kits must also be used under professional supervision. It requires a pre-treatment dental examination since teeth whitening can cause temporary sensitivity at your teeth, and it may be uncomfortable for people who already have sensitive teeth.

In professional in-office bleaching, there are two critical things: quality of the material and use of technology. Our dental clinic in Istanbul uses imported gel from the USA, called Opalescence, and put the gel in reaction with the latest cutting-edge plasma light technology to get the best possible result. Even though it is not a complicated procedure, it must be applied by a skilled dentist to avoid injury around the gum area.

What is Bleaching (Teeth whitening)?

Bleaching, which is also called teeth-whitening, is a treatment that produces the whitening effect and improves the brightness of teeth by using peroxide. This treatment is the least damaging and most conservative technique for whitening the natural teeth.

What is Laser Teeth Whitening?

Laser teeth whitening is one of the best and most popular options to whiten your teeth. Even though it is not a complicated procedure, it must be applied by a skilled dentist to avoid injury around the gum area. Hydrogen peroxide-based gel is applied to your teeth to remove the stains.

Does Bleaching Work for All Kinds of Stains?

Fundamentally, dental stains can be classified into two groups: intrinsic and extrinsic stains.

  • The effects of intrinsic stains are seen on the internal layers of a tooth. This kind of stains can be caused by trauma to teeth, ageing, intaking excessive level of fluoride, certain medications like tetracycline.
  • The effects of extrinsic stains are seen on the outer layers of a tooth. This kind of stains can be caused by foods with artificial colourants, beverages like tea, coffee, cola or wine and smoking.

This classification is significant in terms of the effectiveness of teeth bleaching treatment. Teeth whitening treatments are very effective for the stains that occur outer layers of the teeth. On the other hand, patients with intrinsic stains are generally not good candidates for this treatment. Therefore, a professional examination is required to determine the best treatment option. If the discoloration is caused by intrinsic stains, other treatment options such as veneers may also be recommended.

Teeth Whitening Procedures

There are two primary types of teeth whitening procedures: In-Office-Teeth Whitening and Home Teeth Whitening.

1. In-Office Bleaching

In-office-bleaching is an immediate solution to your staining problems. It is conducted by a dental professional and can create dramatic results. In-office bleaching treatment can deliver results within a relatively short amount of time, like 60 minutes. During the in-office-bleaching procedure, a highly concentrated whitening gel is applied to your teeth. The oxygen molecules in the whitening gel break apart the chemical bonds that make yellow stains. When the bonds are broken, they no longer cause a yellow color and so that a brighter smile is gained.

In-office bleaching is the quickest way to brighten your teeth. Teeth whitening lasts around 1 year. Different from the veneer treatment, teeth whitening technology cannot control how much whiter teeth will be. Therefore, you cannot pick a color before the treatment. Teeth will whiten from one to several shades depending on the patient’s teeth structure.

2. Home Teeth Whitening Kit

At-home teeth whitening is a procedure that can be applied by the patient at home, but you still need to visit the dental clinic to get the custom-fitted tray. This tooth whitening system can offer effective results but require more time than in-office-bleaching. Take-home teeth whitening kits contain high-quality whitening gel. The patient can place the whitening gel into the tray and wear them for a few hours each day. Or the patient can sleep wearing these trays. The procedure is usually completed in two weeks.
