THE INSIDE STORY ON TEETH WHITENING
Dr. Martha Laguilavo, of Dental Care in Laguna Village (Estepona), explains the advantages of teeth whitening
Teeth whitening is a process that lightens the shade of the enamel and dentine by removing discolouration. Having a whiter, brighter and younger looking smile adds to your self-confidence, making you look and feel more attractive – and almost anyone can benefit. The process is completely safe and does not affect the tooth enamel. There are many causes for teeth discolouration, with the most common include ageing and consumption of staining substances such as tobacco, coffee, tea, red wine, cola and curry. Discolouration may also be caused by tooth trauma, nerve degeneration or old restorations. The one-hour laser whitening treatment is carried out in the clinic and is ideal for those who want fast and effective results. The whitening gel is applied directly onto the teeth and a state-of the art laser is used to activate the gel, resulting in lighter and brighter teeth. You can expect to lift up to 10 shades in just one hour. If you prefer you can whiten your teeth in the privacy of your own home using our custom-made trays and whitening gel. This treatment uses a mild “oxygen releasing” gel and is simple and effective for those who want a more gradual and discreet whitening effect.
You simply apply the gel using the trays for 30 minutes per day. You can expect to lift three to five shades lighter in just five days. However, depending on the amount of discolouration you have you may choose to continue whitening for up to 10 days until you achieve the desired results. As for side-effects, some people experience sensitivity to hot and cold drinks but this will disappear within 24 to 48 hours of completing your treatment. Teeth whitening lasts, on average, two years, with people generally dropping two to three shades per year. However, you can maintain your colour for longer by topping up with home gel once a month, for just 30 minutes. Dental Care C.C.
