Craiova dentist tips - what you need to know about teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth. Thus, if the patient has fillings or other types of prosthetic works, they will not be able to be hidden, but will keep their color.
The whitening process involves activation with the help of a heat source, a laser or a light. Both light and heat have the role of accelerating the whitening effect on the teeth. The results are easily visible. They can be seen 60 minutes after the whitening treatment.
Traditional teeth whitening systems use a heat source that acts to accelerate the oxidation process. However, this method also brings disadvantages represented by symptoms such as: itching, skin irritation, gum irritation, mild burns.
