Teeth Whitening


Teeth whitening is a treatment method primarily aimed at lightening the color of teeth.

It is applied to lighten the color of naturally yellow or dark-colored teeth, and to eliminate discolorations caused by factors such as aging, smoking, infection, or trauma.

While the effects of whitening agents with chemical activation in teeth whitening are still debated, in our clinic, treatments are carried out using evidence-based, world-standard, reliable devices and agents that are activated by light.

In Which Situations Is It Applied?

Teeth whitening procedures may be necessary for discolorations that cannot be eliminated through dental cleaning and polishing. There are two main methods of whitening: in-office and at-home whitening. The whitening process should be performed under the supervision of a dentist, and in-office whitening is typically the preferred method.

What is Office Type Teeth Whitening?

This method, performed under the supervision of a dentist in a clinical setting, is a procedure that lasts an average of 45 minutes, depending on the condition of the teeth and the sensitivity of the patient. Before the procedure, dental cleaning is performed, and a whitening gel is applied to the clean tooth surfaces and activated with a powerful light source.

Is Teeth Whitening Risky? What is the Success Rate?

For patient safety, a gum barrier and special goggles are used during the procedure. When applied with correct indications and a good whitening system, the success rate is high. The longevity of whitening can vary between 6 months to 2 years, depending on the individual’s post-treatment dental care habits.

What should be done after the procedure?

After the treatment, precautions should be taken against discoloration and sensitivity. In the first few days, dark-colored foods should be avoided, and hot and cold foods should be refrained from. Maintaining a regular tooth brushing routine is important.

Is There Sensitivity After Teeth Whitening?

Sensitivity is normal during and after treatment. Special creams for teeth can be used to reduce sensitivity.

How Many Sessions Does the Teeth Whitening Procedure Take?

In the standard procedure, 3 sessions can be performed on the same day, but depending on the physician’s preference, the sessions can be spaced on intermittent days.

Does the Whitening Process Damage Teeth?

When quality agents are used and performed by certified experts, the whitening process does not cause permanent damage to the teeth.

Are Self-Apply Whitening Agents Sold on the Internet Safe?

The use of products sold online should be avoided, as many have been proven to cause permanent damage to teeth. It is important to stay away from such products.
