We must admit a time from now there is a lot of people that have really thought about how important it is to have a good dental health. That is why that some treatments like teeth whitening are so popular.
What is teeth whitening?
By essence, we could say the it is about a teeth stain eliminating treatment, which is caused by external agents such as tobacco, coffee or food pigments that are consumed daily.
The dental pieces suffer all these harshness as a consequence of the thousands of microscopic pores that are found on teeth enamel.
Teeth Whitening types
It is important to know all kinds of teeth whitening which we can find around. This way, we will be able to value the pros and cons and consider if it really is what we need.
Clinical fotoactive whitening
It is a treatment that is performed on a clinic. On the bright side, there are a lot of clinical centers that have this service in Barcelona or any city within the Spanish territory, so there is no problem about it if you need a teeth whitening. We are talking about an innovating process in which we will be able to see the results in just less than an hour.
- First of all, gums are protected with special material cover.
- From this moment on, a whitening gel is applied.
- Lastly, gel’s active elements will be activated with a led light, so the results will be seen.
Teeth whitening at home
First of all, we should say that this treatment must be always supervised by an odontologist. Moreover, this is generally cheaper and more comfortable for the patient.
- Using proper materials, patient’s measurements will be made.
- Molds of the patient’s dental structure will be made with the measurements already taken on the chosen clinic for the treatment to be performed
- Those molds will be located on the mouth with a gel on it following the instructions of the specialist.
Even though this could be cheaper and more comfortable and convenient for the patient, we must be clear that the results are much slower. It is also important to say that the whitening results are not permanent. In fact, like we said in the beginning, the pores will remain, and the dirt particles could be still accumulated there.
This mean that is preferable – if not a obligatory- to continue to have a good oral hygiene in despite of the treatment. Certain hygiene that, of course, should be done besides usual dentist appointments. The main intention is none other than to be able to detect problems in time and avoid costly treatments.
