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.

Teeth whitening is a practical and effective way to get rid of discolored or stained teeth. If you prefer teeth whitening at a dentist it’s possible to go with an in-office bleaching, or try at-home treatments such as teeth whitening strips. Although it is a widely practiced cosmetic dentistry treatment around the world there are still many questions up in the air for many people. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions answered for you.
Teeth whitening is the process of lightening the natural color of the teeth using hydrogen peroxide and/or carbamide peroxide.
Yes. Technically, “bleaching” refers to whitening teeth beyond their natural color. The term “whitening”, on the other hand, is simply restoring the natural whiteness of the teeth.
Extrinsic stains are the discoloration on the outermost layer of the teeth.
Intrinsic stains are within the tooth structure. The stain-causing particles get into the surface and result in colors like brown, black, gray…etc.
Poor dental hygiene, having certain foods and drinks, and tobacco play the greatest role in teeth staining.
Smoking or chewing tobacco, and drinking dark beverages like tea or coffee can cause yellow teeth. Such factors can affect even more significantly as they wear away tooth enamel as well.
Yes, they can be whitened using whitening technologies and products.
If the ‘best’ means the most effective solution in the shortest amount of time, having a bleaching treatment at a dental clinic is the best way.
The teeth whitening cost without insurance starts from $240, and may be higher depending on the procedural and locational factors. You can also consider at-home teeth whitening products instead of professional teeth whitening.
The degree of whiteness varies for each patient since it depends on the tooth structure. It can be 3-4 shades whiter or only a half shade. The patient can’t choose a color before whitening. If you have a specific white color in your mind, please consult your dentist regarding other treatment options such as porcelain veneers.
No, it is recommended to avoid drinking coffee, tea and colorful beverages for two weeks.
The whitening effect can last for 6 months to 2 years depending on a patient’s dental care and lifestyle.
Patients with sensitive teeth should consult with a dentist before getting dental bleaching. Depending on the cause of sensitivity, it might be advised to avoid or adjust teeth whitening techniques.
Tooth whitening is not a good idea for people with gum disease since the exposed teeth roots don’t have an enamel layer and bleaching products will not work on them.
No, the whitening products don’t damage the enamel.
No, cavities should be treated before whitening because whitening materials can penetrate the cavities and damage the inner structure of the teeth.
Exposed roots don’t have the enamel layer, so whitening products don’t work there.
Veneers are not affected by bleaching products, but your natural teeth are. So getting teeth whitening might result in uneven whiteness of your teeth.
Whitening products like hydrogen peroxide clean the teeth deeply and remove bacteria. If the bad breath is caused by bacteria on your teeth, whitening can help you solve this problem.
You can try making dietary changes and/or start brushing your teeth with baking soda once or twice a week.
