Teeth whitening is the most demanded aesthetic dental treatment by patients who want to have a beautiful smile. It is also one of the easiest and fastest ways to have a more beautiful smile. With the teeth whitening process, the color of the teeth is made lighter and brighter. This method provides shining smiles, positive stance and self-confidence. Teeth whitening is done in two ways as office type and home type whitening.
Office Type Whitening
In Office Type Bleaching, while the patient is in the clinic; Intense concentration of whitening gel is applied to the tooth surface. In order to increase the effectiveness of the whitening gel, devices such as light devices, plasma arc, halogen lamps or laser are used.
Oral tissues are isolated before treatment,
The whitening gel is applied to the front and interface of the teeth,
In order to increase the effectiveness of the whitening gel, a light device is held on the front surface of the tooth.
In office type whitening, maximum whiteness and brightness of the tooth color is achieved in 1 or 3 sessions. A week is left between sessions.
In home bleaching; Silicon plaque specially prepared for the patient’s tooth structure and a low concentration whitening gel suitable for the patient’s home use are used. This type of whitening treatment takes longer than Office type whitening.
Impressions are taken from the patient to prepare a personalized plaque,
The patient applies the given whitening gel into the plate and applies it every night for 4 or more hours.
The treatment takes about 5-10 days.

In order to obtain a more permanent result, in some cases, home bleaching is recommended to the patient along with office bleaching.
