Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is considered a common cosmetic treatment aimed at improving the appearance of teeth. It includes a range of medical and home treatment options.

These home options include toothpaste, strips, and mouthwash, while medical options include laser teeth whitening and chemical whitening.

These treatments are used to treat stains caused by factors such as smoking, soda, and plaque buildup. Dental whitening requires a doctor’s monitoring and supervision, while home whitening treatments can be done without a doctor’s supervision.


Types of Teeth Whitening

There are two main types of teeth whitening:

1. Tray Whitening Teeth:

This type involves using special plastic trays made according to each patient’s tooth trays. These trays are filled with a special whitening gel and placed on the teeth for a specific period daily for several weeks. This type can be expensive because it requires buying trays tailored to each person in addition to the whitening gel.

2. Internal Bleaching:

This type is used when the tooth that needs to be whitened has already been treated and the root has been successfully removed and the root canals cleaned well. A whitening material is placed inside the root canals and left for several days to two weeks, and this material is changed every day. This type of whitening requires cooperation with the dentist and is carefully supervised.


The side effects of teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is a procedure aimed at improving the color of the teeth and making them whiter. There are several reasons that can lead to yellowing of the teeth, including smoking, consuming coffee and tea, and taking certain medications. Teeth whitening is done through home and clinical treatments.

The side effects of teeth whitening are usually minor. Some people may experience increased sensitivity in their teeth for a short period, and in some cases, mild gum inflammation may occur.

Receiving teeth whitening treatment during pregnancy is not recommended because the effects of whitening agents on fetal development are still unknown. Since pregnancy comes with different priorities, it is advised to delay receiving cosmetic teeth whitening treatment until after giving birth.


Before teeth whitening treatment

any existing cavities in the teeth must be treated. The whitening solution can penetrate through cavities to the inner parts of the teeth and increase their sensitivity.

It should also be noted that teeth whitening is not effective on teeth with exposed roots. Root exposure in some cases can be due to gum recession, making teeth whitening ineffective in these cases. It should also be noted that teeth whitening is not effective on teeth with old fillings, crowns, or porcelain veneers.

The teeth should also be cleaned thoroughly before starting the whitening treatment. This can be done by a dentist or a dental hygienist, and then the treatment can begin.


There are several steps to follow for teeth whitening treatment, and these steps vary depending on the type of treatment:

1. Internal Teeth Whitening:

In this type of treatment, the dentist performs a special treatment that whitens the tooth from the inside. A whitening material is placed inside the tooth and covered with a temporary filling material. The tooth remains in this state for several days before the whitening material is removed and the process is repeated until the desired color is achieved.

2. Home Teeth Whitening:

The dentist takes measurements for the patient’s jaw and prepares one or two trays, depending on the patient’s preference. The whitening material is applied to the trays and fitted into the mouth for several hours daily for several weeks until the patient achieves the desired color.

In both cases, the teeth should be cleaned thoroughly before starting the treatment. The treatment may require repeated sessions to achieve the desired color, and the teeth should be monitored regularly for any side effects. The treatment period ranges from two weeks to four weeks approximately.


After Teeth Whitening

After the procedures, the dentist examines the process to ensure its normal progress, usually about a week after the treatment. It is also advisable to undergo regular checkups after a period to ensure that no problems develop.

It should be noted that teeth whitening is not always a permanent solution, and stains may reappear in people exposed to factors such as smoking or consuming foods and drinks that cause stains on the teeth.

The whitening starts to fade after about a month of treatment. To achieve permanent results, it is necessary to avoid the factors that cause stains, and additional treatment may be required after a period of 6 to 12 months only.
