Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening has been known about for many centuries, and up to now there have been many means that have been completely ineffective and could even damage the teeth. Previous ​practices ​such as urine of humans and animals, acids or chemicals, have often been very toxic and have permanently damaged the teeth. There are many possibilities today, all of which are pH-neutral and, when used correctly, lighten teeth without damage.

Bleaching may be suggested for medical or cosmetic reasons. For example, medical reasons can be a mental strain from discoloured teeth or the brightening of root-canal treated teeth. Colour-giving substances can penetrate into the enamel and stain teeth dark. The cosmetic whitening of teeth is based on a beauty ideal and can lighten teeth to a level on the colour scale of the tooth.

External influences are the reason for tooth discolouration. These include alcoholic beverages, tea, tobacco smoke, coffee, red wine and fruit juices. Medication, accidents, tooth decay or malnutrition lead to the dark discolouration of teeth. Try not to confuse plaque on teeth with teeth themselves; as a result every bleaching begins with professional tooth cleaning to better assess the actual tooth colour. Furthermore, the bleaching agent can then work better on the tooth substances.

Please note that fillings, crowns and bridges are not affected by tooth whitening. If these are in the visible range, a substitution can take place so that all teeth have the same colour. Even after brightening, the reintegration of dentures is difficult. We will explain this problem in detail in your consultation. There is an obligation to inform you about tooth whitening, which we take very seriously in our practice. We will advise you on the risks, procedure and the possible side effects. Incidentally, tooth whitening can last for several years. However, the duration ultimately depends on the consumption habits and oral hygiene of each individual. Revitalisation treatments are always necessary when the whitened teeth become noticeably, either completely or partially, darker.
