Aesthetic dental treatments
In-Office professional teeth whitening
Signal Profession WHITE NOW Liquid & Powder Fast PLUS is a teeth whitening material for professional teeth bleaching that contains hydrogen peroxide (38%). The jelly is prepared in the office by simply mixing the powder and the liquid. The effect – 8-10 time whiter teeth – becomes immediately visible. Before this treatment the patient may need some dental hygiene treatments like plaque and tartar removal, tooth polishing and changing of inadequate obturations.
Shortly about the treatment
Using a UV light we activate the jelly containing hydrogen peroxide applied on the tooth, the created active oxygen radicals enter the upper and lower parts of the tooth and remove the discolorations. It is important to know that during this treatment the existing obturations and dental protheses do not become whiter and because of the old obturations without a right closure and because of eventual cervical wear the patient can complain about cervical hypersensivity, so the causes must be treated.
Care after treatment
After teeth whitening in order to maintain results it is recommended to avoid at least for 1 week:
- consumption of colourful food and drinks, coffee, cola, red wine.
- consumption of acidic food/drinks: citrus, tomato, food prepared from tomato
Sensitivity after treatment is a normal reaction, in order to reduce it we recommend to use fluoride toothpastes/jellies. (for example: ElmexGel). The obtained results can be maintained for 1-1.5 years, after this time teeth need to be bleeched again in order to maintain the results for a longer time.
Professional teeth whitening at home
It is less efficient than in-office professional tooth whitening because in lack of adequate control and check-ups the patient can use only materials with lower concentration, but this is an adequate process as far as the maintenance of the long-term results is regarded. On the basis of the impression the dental technician creates a transparent splint, the patient will place it on his/her teeth and will wear it at night or when he/she performs quiet activities for 6-8 hours per day, for a week.
Internal whitening of endodontically treated teeth/tooth
In most cases the whitening of the endodontically treated, discolored teeth can take place only in the dental office. In these cases dental discoloration appears because of the toxins of the bacteria living in the untreated or inadequately treated root canal, so their external treatment would be difficult. In these cases after the adequate treatment of the root canal we put some special whitening material in the pulp chamber and we solve the problem.
Most of tooth jewels are made of crystal. There are also jewels of different shapes (drop, star etc.) made of gold, but because of their high price these are available only when the client orders them. The application of tooth jewels is not unpleasant, it is fast and painless. It is very important to know that the these jewels don’t damage the dental enamel. The jewel is stuck to the surface of the tooth using a special adhesive and not a drill. After application the lifespan of the jewel changes from one person to another, it can resist months or even years. If the patient doesn’t want anymore to wear the jewel or he/she wants to have another one, we can remove this jewel or we can replace it anytime without damaging the dental enamel.
