What Is The Teeth Whitening Process?
Teeth whitening process (bleaching); It is the process of removing the stains in the enamel and dentin layer of the tooth with the help of special gels used in dentistry. The color of your own teeth is opened with teeth whitening process from 2 to 8 tons. Bleaching is a procedure we do when our patients are not satisfied with the color of their teeth.
There are vertical channels on our teeth that extend from the enamel to the dentin layer. Tooth whitening gels enter through these channels and lighten the color of the dentin layer. Therefore, the bleaching process has no harm to the teeth. There is no such thing as any abrasion on the teeth or removing a layer of tooth enamel.
This bleaching process takes place with hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide chemicals. With the teeth whitening method known as teeth bleaching, the original color of the tooth is opened between 2-8 tones.
Bleaching is not just about removing stains. There are actually 2 methods for cleaning teeth. One of them is the removal of stains and residues called tooth stone cleaning and polishing. The other is teeth whitening applications called bleaching.
What Are The Teeth Whitening Methods?
As an application, teeth whitening process is divided into 2 as in-office and at-home methods.
In-Office Teeth Whitening Process in Turkey
In-Office teeth whitening is a method that can only be applied by dentists. The concentration of drugs used in this method is higher. We activate that drug with a blue light or a laser.
There are two application methods of office bleaching which are activated by LED light and activated without LED light. The result and purpose of both are the same. The reason that separates these two administrations is the indications. We prefer the LED-free method for people with sensitive teeth. We prefer the LED light method to anyone who does not have tooth sensitivity.
How is Laser Teeth Whitening Performed and How Long Does It Take?
We ensure that soft tissues are removed from the teeth with the help of appliances attached to the mouth before bleaching. After this process, we apply light-curing liquid barriers to the gums to prevent possible leakage of whitening agents into the gums. Finally, we apply whitening agents to the surfaces of the teeth and wait 15 minutes per session with a special light.
With the teeth whitening process that we apply in 3 sessions and lasts 45 minutes in total, we achieve the desired result. In-Office teeth whitening is the best method because of its time advantage and convenience.
At-Home Teeth Whitening Process
At-Home teeth whitening is a method of whitening performed by applying gels given to the patient by the doctor at home. First of all, we take a measurement from the person and prepare a personalized transparent plate according to these measurements. The person applies the gel given by the dentist into this plaque. Gel-applied plates should be worn between 2 and 6 hours a day. This process takes an average of 2 weeks until the desired whitening tone is reached.
Difference Between In-Office and At-Home Teeth Whitening

What Should Be Considered After Bleaching?
Items that may color the teeth such as red wine, cigars, cigarettes, strawberries, carrots and tomato paste are prohibited for at least 48 hours. However, great care should be taken during the first 2 weeks. With the toothpaste we give, the teeth should be brushed immediately after the colorant is eaten and drunk within these 2 weeks. This recommendation is really important.
During this period, teeth are very sensitive to colors. Whatever color you apply to the tooth, it will easily get that color. You should also avoid extremely hot and cold foods and drinks for the first few days.
Is The Teeth Whitening Process Permanent?
After bleaching, its permanence is an average of 2 years. However, this of course varies from person to person. This period depends on the person paying attention to oral cleaning in the morning and evening and having dental calculus cleaning every 6 months.
If you smoke cigars, consume a lot of red wine, your oral care is insufficient and if you do not regularly go to tartar cleaning, this period will be reduced to 1 year. After this 1 year, there will be a need for another bleaching application.
Will There Be Pain During and After The Bleaching Process?
There is no pain during and after the bleaching process. However, sensitivity can be seen in the teeth. Sensitivity can be felt occasionally both during the procedure and at the same night. But this is a situation that varies from person to person. While most people do not experience any sensitivity, some people do. The next day, this sensitivity in the teeth will disappear.
