Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic solution in which colored organic and inorganic substances formed in the enamel structure on the surface of the teeth are removed with tooth whitening gels.

The whitening process involves applying a specially prepared gel onto the teeth and accelerating the reaction with a light source or laser. The mechanism of the whitening process is an oxidation-reduction reaction. The substances used release oxygen. The substances that cause discoloration in the teeth are replaced by colorless substances and whitening occurs.

These are stains that have penetrated into the teeth and cannot be removed by brushing. Coloring drinks such as cigarettes, tea and coffee cause external discoloration as well as internal discoloration. Structural disorders that occur during the formation of teeth (due to medications or excessive fluoride intake, etc.) also fall into this class. Bleaching is very successful in the majority of such cases.
