Would you like a brighter smile?
Tooth whitening may be the solution you are looking for.
A bleaching gel is placed into a transparent, custom-made tray.
This gel penetrates into the tooth and break the bonds between the “coloured” molecules that are present.
The gels we use also contain potassium nitrate and fluoride to strengthen the enamel and reduce sensitivity.
The active ingredient (carbamide or hydrogen peroxide) enters through the enamel to reach the molecules that are responsible for colour inside your teeth and alter them.
Oxygen molecules provided by the active ingredient break the bonds of the molecules responsible for the colour change.
Oxygen molecules diffuse through the tooth and thus act on all of it.
The result obtained is very stable. Nevertheless, new colouring molecules that you come into contact with will tend to gradually recolour your teeth.
So how long it lasts will depend greatly on your lifestyle (smoking, tea, coffee, food).
To retain optimum results, it may be necessary to undergo a lighter bleaching every 2 to 3 years.
No harm has been demonstrated by the scientific community when the appropriate products and techniques are used.
It is quite common to experience dental sensitivity during treatment. This sensitivity is temporary and disappears completely by the end of the treatment.
The gel we use contains desensitising agents to provide additional comfort.
To obtain predictable and sustainable results, it is best to turn to a dentist.
“Home remedies” (e.g. lemon combined with sodium bicarbonate) and other whitening toothpastes are not capable of whitening your teeth thoroughly.
At best, they remove some surface stains but do this by damaging the enamel of your teeth every time via abrasion.
No, scientific studies have shown that the gel alone is sufficient to ensure optimal results and that activation using a lamp offers no advantage.
