Dental Whitening of vital teeth
This type of whitening can be of two different types:
Teeth whitening performed in the dental office.
It is done by the professional, with the person in the chair, who will apply a whitening agent based on 35% hydrogen peroxide, which can be activated by a light source.
It is necessary to carry out adequate prophylaxis beforehand and check that the oral cavity is healthy. After this step, the area to be treated is isolated in order to avoid contact between the whitening agent and the periodontal tissues, tissues that support the tooth, such as the gums, and then the whitening agent is added.
It is essential to follow the whitening system manufacturer’s instructions for satisfactory results.
This is a very effective method, as a high concentration of the whitening component is handled under the control of the professional.
At home teeth whitening, under the supervision of a professional.
In this type of whitening, the concentration of carbamide peroxide is 10%.
This method is performed at home, under the professional’s instructions. As with previous whitening, it is necessary to perform oral prophylaxis and a check-up prior to the treatment.
Two custom-made trays are made up in which the whitening agent will be applied. As they are adapted to the teeth of each individual, the pieces will fit perfectly in the mouth. In this way, any possible contact with the periodontal tissues is avoided.
