Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment in which the colored organic and inorganic formations in the enamel are removed by tooth whitening gels. The dental treatment is carried out by applying a specially developed and prepared gel, which is brought under the action of a light source or a laser for accelerated reaction. The mechanism of the bleaching application can be explained in the form of an oxidation-reduction reaction. The substances used release oxygen. In this way, the substances that have caused a discoloration of the teeth, replaced by colorless substances. The result is brilliant white teeth.
The teeth have two types of coloring
Internal staining: Are stains that have penetrated the tooth and can not be removed by brushing or brushing teeth. The consumption of cigarettes, tea, coffee and other tooth-damaging habits not only lead to external discoloration of the teeth but can also lead to internal discoloration. The structural defects that occur during the training of the teeth (depending on medications taken or due to excessive intake of fluorine) fall into this category. Bleaching, for the cases listed above, is a very successful cosmetic procedure.
External coloring; It is the discoloration of the tooth surface due to some dyes such as cigarette smoke, tea, coffee and cola. It is usually very easy to clean the teeth and remove these stains.
