Teeth whitening process is a cosmetic procedure that is applied to people whose teeth are no longer white as before and thus these people choose this procedure to lighten their teeth. The process of bleaching the teeth is performed without damaging the teeth during the dentist’s control.
Teeth whitening is a short-term process. The number of sessions varies between 2-3 sessions depending on the color of the teeth. First, a protective application is applied to teeth and then a whitening gel is applied. Any damage to the teeth is not caused during the process. This application is done 3 times in 15-minute periods.
Effect of Teeth Whitening
The permanence of the whitening process depends on various factors. The teeth structure of the person affects the result obtained from the bleaching process. After the bleaching process, tooth whiteness remains stable for approximately 6 months to 2 years. The length or the shortness of this period depends on the people who perform the procedure. After teeth whitening, food and drinks that stain teeth should be avoided for at least two weeks.
