    • Advantages: aesthetic urgencies and individuals unable to perform the home technique due to extensive gingival retractions.
    • Risks and problems: irreversible changes in the tooth enamel, inflammatory pulp irritation, and post-treatment sensitivity and unclear region next to the gums.
    • Technical highlight: due to the risks to teeth, the type of laser whitening should be restricted to infrequent applications in patients with aesthetic emergencies.

Led tooth whitening: Confused with the laser technique, it uses the same bleaching agents used in this type of tooth whitening. The difference is really because of the type of light source used. It brings the same risks and problems as the laser technique, being among the most common types of tooth whitening with the use of light.

    •  Treatment time: 1 to 4 sessions, with 1:30 hours each consultation; the interval between consultations is 48 hours.

• Conventional tooth whitening (office): The simplest of the types of tooth whitening is also the one that brings the same more effective whitening results. And with the added advantage of being safer to your teeth. The only one, however, is the length of the application sessions for the bleaching gel, which takes longer compared to the techniques optimized by light (led or laser).

The dentist is responsible for monitoring the results and health conditions of the gums and tooth enamel, increasing or decreasing the concentration of bleaching agents.

Essential Tips for start teeth whitening treatment

  • Prevention and removal of stains and tartar are essential and need to be performed at least 48 hours before starting tooth whitening.
  • Previous desensitization can decrease or even eliminate the appearance of pain and sensitive teeth during the procedure.
  • Techniques applied in the office, by the dentist, should be restricted to aesthetic emergencies and individuals with extensive gingival retractions.
  • Homemade tooth whitening brings whitening results superior to ambulatory techniques.
  • The combined use of homemade and professional technologies delivers excellent results compared to any method, in isolated use.
  • Avoid foods based on artificial colors, wines and grape juices, teas, tobacco, and green vegetables during and up to 7 days after the bleaching procedure, regardless of the technique.
  • Despite the higher risks, the whitening treatment performed in the office, irrespective of the method, results in a smaller number of individuals with sensitive teeth or spontaneous pain.
  • Dental polishing after tooth whitening makes the accumulation of stains difficult and reduces the speed of the yellowing of teeth.
