The types of teeth whitening

Laser tooth whitening: The most glamorous and desired technique. It uses whitening gels in very high concentrations (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide), applied on the teeth after the complete isolation of gums and lips.

    • Treatment time: 1 to 4 sessions, each lasting 1:30 hours; the interval between consultations is 48 hours.
    • 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.
    • 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: it is less risky than the laser technique and still brings the same results. Aesthetic urgencies and quick application sessions of the whitening gel are highlights for this type of technique.

• 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).

    •  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.
    • Treatment time: 1 to 4 sessions, with 1:30 hours each consultation; the interval between consultations is 48 hours.
    • Technique highlight: safer than LED and laser techniques, it brings the same lightening results. Although the application time of the whitening gel is longer, the simplicity of the procedure can even make the session faster.

• Homemade teeth whitening:  Among the types of tooth whitening, home tooth whitening is the most efficient and safe for teeth. It uses the same bleaching gels as laser, led, or conventional techniques, but applied by the patient through flexible and transparent trays. 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.

    •  Treatment time: 7 to 21 days, with daily applications ranging from 30 minutes to 4 hours (depending on the type and concentration of the bleaching gel).
    • Advantages: superior whitening results, low risk of dental pulp aggression, effective whitening along the gingival margins, less risk for superficial stains, effective for teeth stained by antibiotics.
    • Risks and problems: increased sensitivity appears in 70% of patients, cannot be used in patients with extensive gingival retractions (gingival recession).
    • Technique highlights: safer and more efficient than other types of tooth whitening, it does not leave parts of the tooth in contact with yellow gums.

Tips for the correct teeth whitening

  • During treatment, it is also vital that the patient avoid the consumption of highly pigmented foods, as, during the use of whitening gels, the teeth become more porous. Therefore, there are risks of the appearance of stains.
  • Meals and beverages such as coffee, açaí, soft drinks, hot sauces, and processed products should be avoided during the treatment period. 
  • The cigarette must be suspended. Otherwise, the results will not be satisfactory.
  • Avoid the consumption of alcoholic beverages and very acidic foods. 
  • Oral hygiene should always be done after meals, and floss should be used daily.
  • Use colorless toothpaste and, if using rinses, they should be white, as colored products hinder the whitening result.
