Facts of Teeth Whitening in Portland


The first and most important step before Teeth Whitening Portland is a diagnosis made by a professional. Dentists must assess what causes darkening of your teeth because not all teeth can be bleached; for example, they cannot be bleached when there is any type of fillings. Also, before starting treatment, the mouth should be healthy, free of decay and gum disorders. That’s why it’s always necessary to perform a dental cleaning to remove existing tartar and plaque, as these can interfere with the whitening gel. Most bleaching treatments that are sold in pharmacies and supermarkets do not work when your teeth aren’t clean.

The types of whitening

Simple teeth whitening is done by applying a bleaching gel based on carbamide peroxide, first isolating the soft tissue. Dentists use a halogen light that activates and accelerates the whitening process. The main advantage is that each session is done in about an hour, and the disadvantage is that the duration of the treatment depends on the habits of each patient. Whitening will need to be performed again real soon depending on the condition of your teeth.
Combined whitening involves using a splint to fit the two arches of the mouth. In each patient, a bleaching gel is applied in the splint and left in place for a certain period of time. This is done in your own home and you can do the procedure both day and night. This type of whitening has the advantages of being faster than most home kits and the duration lasts longer, depending on the patient’s habits.


How does whitening gel work?

Bleaching gel penetrates the dentin through the enamel. Carbamide peroxide releases oxygen radicals, destroying the pigment molecules, becoming colorless. It’s not harmful to the enamel or dentin of the teeth.
