Our smile is our most important letter. Wear a clean and sparkling teeth has become increasingly important in our society. Therefore, tooth whitening treatments are becoming more frequent without resorting to artificial aesthetic alterations.

Teeth whitening is a noninvasive procedure that change, blanch or clarify the natural color of teeth. It is a treatment that does not interfere with the original color dela teeth, since hues are maintained, that is, if the tooth is yellow, the yellow color is maintained, even clearer.

It is considered a purely cosmetic treatment which is performed on all teeth, although it is in those teeth leading edge of the visible area of the smile, where more color change was observed.

Patients who undergo this operation can come to two possible procedures. One takes place entirely in the patient's home (home technology). To do this, we make a small plastic splint, after taking a few impressions of the patient's mouth, where the bleaching product is placed for a few days, supplied model in the dental clinic.

The other system is mixed, that is, the first part takes place in the clinic and a second part in the patient's home, following the instructions given by the clinic staff. Working time in clinic is about an hour.

In home technical achieve the desired result is slightly slower. In contrast, mixed media, to be achievable in practice with specific apparatus, we noted a significant change from the first moment.

Generally, treatment has no risk or contradiction. In some cases, it can cause tooth sensitivity, which disappears in a few days if we use desensitizing paste or mouthwash. We recommend the use of LED lamps for medical treatment since the laser lamps produce overheating causing tooth hypersensitivity.
