Yes it is possible!
Teeth whitening is a treatment that consists in applying a peroxyide base gel on the teeth in order to lighten the color of the enamel and dentition.
The natural aging process, different types of food, tobacco, coffee, red wine and certain medication are all different reasons that explain why the teeth change color.
To eliminate this discoloration, teeth whitening is the treatment of choice.
It is important to know that some coloration respond better than others to the bleaching treatment. That`s why it is mandatory to have an exam done by the dentist before doing the treatment.
There are 2 ways to bleach the teeth, both are safe and both have recommendations to follow before, during and after the treatment.
- At home with bleaching trays, custom made by the dentist. The patient applies the gel in the tray for 30 min. every day for 2-3 weeks.
- In office, whitening done in 1 hour. The concentration of peroxyde is stronger than the gel that is done in the home treatment and is activated by a plasma light that is done by the hygenist under the dentists supervision.
