Which whitening is the safest and most gentle to the tooth enamel?

Safe Whitening

Who with great suspicion belongs to the bleaching of the teeth, I just want to say that a safe teeth whitening there really is. However, before you delve into this topic, let's first define some of the nuances and terminology, and see what, in fact, is detrimental to Bleaching (why are so many people afraid of him), and what is the difference between true Bleaching the surface of tooth enamel.

Gentle whitening with minimal influence of the used bleaching system on the structural elements of enamel and Dentin. Unfortunately, this is not achieved in practice, since the effective real enamel whitening are means a combination of substances that actively penetrate into the depth of the surface layer of the tooth enamel and break down your normal structure. Simply put, not only destroyed the color pigments, but also at the same time disturbances in the structure of the enamel and Dentin (wash out calcium and phosphorus, Protein Matrix of enamel).

As a result, often after effective teeth whitening (in terms of know-smile), Email provides sponge is a kind of porous, required in the emergency procedures remineralization, including fluoridation.

It is also important to distinguish the true teeth Whitening and brightening:

  1. The bleaching of the tooth enamel contains a chemical (or photochemical), the destruction of the colored compounds in their surface layer to a certain depth. Strong oxidizing agents bleaching just painted fabrics, their implementation in unpainted connection. As you know, is not always the whitening is safe for teeth, but with the right approach and in strict compliance with all of the technology to achieve this.
  2. But the whitening of the teeth is working on a completely different principle – it is the mechanical removal of the surface of the enamel pigmented deposits (e.g. Plaque, calculus). Thereby, ultrasonic, Air Flow technology, pastes, abrasive, whitening teeth and other methods. In General, whitening of the teeth, the technology is gentler than the true whitening, although very important here.

As in the first and in the second case, a positive result can be achieved: the surface of the teeth really bright. However, if you want, select the first variant of the tooth whitening, and at the same time the most effective, then it is helpful to first see what is the potential risk of currently used technologies (including for home is use, including whitening pens, strips, mouth guard).

Why, actually, teeth whitening damages the tooth enamel and how dangerous it is?

If you look at the structure of the teeth of the people, it is clear that their Bleaching (tooth whitening) is always associated with a direct or indirect impact on the tooth enamel.

Imagine the Situation: a man looks in the mirror and sees that the teeth in the Zone a smile, he had some yellowish. But I want you to have at least a little white. The simplest thing I can think of, take harder the brush and RUB the surface of the teeth, until you have done this your of nature tint (in General, and the people – think of the once-popular tooth-powder or tooth cleaning with charcoal, chalk, and clay).

Of course, today people understand that this idea, in the best case, not the most pleasant, and in the worst case harmful, because the sensitivity of the teeth cause by different stimuli (hot, sour, cold). This so-called "feeling oskominy", as a solid bite made bullet, a shiver through the body.

Teeth cleaning

Real (chemical) tooth whitening is hardly secure. During the procedure, high concentrations of peroxides and acids are often the necessary chemical reactions on the surface of the tooth enamel and in your. Risk procedure is directly to the skin is proportional to the concentration of the bleaching agent: the higher the concentration, the greater the risk for the future health of the tooth and the oral mucosa.

Acid (usually orthophosphoric) flushes out active calcium and peroxide as a strong oxidant, capable of destroying the collagen fibres in the structure of the tooth enamel. If you are whitening in the dental office, but at home, then the following negative effects:

  • The emergence of the sensitivity of the teeth;
  • Microporosity Email (in pores) slightly colored compounds from food, then the teeth are sometimes even darker than before the procedure;
  • Heterogeneous Bleaching enamel, some areas appear brighter than the other;
  • Chemical burns of the gums acid and hydrogen peroxide (sometimes, if you try, your teeth will lighten skin at home with people with the gums Rags) solves literally.

As you can see, in the independent execution of the procedure not sure. But Desktop whitening of the teeth, the specialists in the clinic is, together with a very high degree of efficiency can be characterized as completely safe, because with the right approach, all the unwanted effects, avoid, or resolve in a short period of time.

Ultrasonic techniques, mechanical teeth whitening

Ultrasound - the "whitening" of the teeth is also a gentle and totally safe way of whitening of the enamel.

Perhaps the main difference between the ultrasonic applications is the possibility of a very efficient removal of dental stone, while with the help of the sodostruynoy treatment is almost impossible.

After removal by ultrasonic dental stone (and, in some cases, Plaque) on the teeth brighter on 1-2 and more sounds. The principle here is simple: the more "dirt" on the teeth, the more pronounced the effect.

So that ultrasonic whitening is also one of the best and safest, as there is no impact on the depth of the structure of the tooth enamel. So, ultrasound is also suitable for sensitive teeth, with the modification that in rare cases it is necessary for the implementation of the Infiltration anesthesia, the patient is very comfortable.

Whitening Strips, mouth guard, pencils, and chewing gum

We will start with a bleaching gum. Everything is simple – it is the most widespread myth that Whitening whiten gums able to actually tooth enamel. To take advantage of many people around the world continue to hope for a miracle, although, in practice, no miracle has not happened, except that miraculously the pockets of the manufacturers of such chewing gum to fill.

Whitening Strips are some of the most convenient means to home tooth whitening, and really capable, visible results. The principle of bleaching consists in the fact that special strip on the Gel-base on the surface of the front groups of the teeth, and by the presence of hydrogen peroxide in the Gel, the bleaching of the tooth enamel.

Depending on the concentration of the active components in the strip (defined by the manufacturer, quality, durability), the effect can be achieved in different intervals: Email much brighter in the rule, within 1-2 weeks, although sometimes a positive result is not achieved.

You consider, why in some cases the result can be almost zero:

  • Whitening Strips are not able to remove Plaque and Tartar from the surface of the tooth enamel. Even Desktop-Bleaching is not carried out in the "dirty" teeth, as they would be ineffective;
  • The concentration of peroxides in the majority of cases, for the market strip for bleaching of the teeth is significantly lower than in the professional whitening – this is due to the fact that the manufacturer thinks first about the safety of the method of the untrained people at home.

Now a few words about whitening mouth guard.

At the Moment, mouth guard use, for self-application at home (mostly from China), a lot of negative reviews. The reasons are the same: low concentration of peroxides, and (sometimes) the presence of Plaque and stone, greatly disturbing the receipt of the desired effect.

When using lightening Cap is the best and relatively safe way to home tooth whitening the application of each Cap, is a dentist prepared for the occupation. In General, you apply after cleaning of the tooth enamel of the stone and Plaque, as well as (almost always) – according to the carried out tooth whitening in the doctor's room – for the fixing of the result.

Such a mouth guard with whitening Gel for use at home you will have a detailed instruction and individual recommendations, with which, during and after the Bleaching process minimizes the risk of damage to tooth enamel and oral mucosa.

Also whitening pens that, generally speaking, are very contradictory means of tooth whitening for home use (effective, but its safety largely depends on, as the proverb says, by the "curvature of the Hand" of the people).

Working principle whitening pencils is pretty simple: Gel contained a pencil, pressed on the surface of the front teeth (see the example in the photo below), then it is necessary to smile for some time still, the composition is dried.

With the aim of the safety of the whitening procedure for the gums and the mucosa of the lip pencils from well-known manufacturers skin not very high concentration illustrationem e-mail components.

Desktop Teeth Whitening

Desktop or, in other words, professional whitening is gels at the dentist with the help of hydrogen peroxide (or its derivatives). The procedure can be performed with or without a catalyst, as catalysts can be applied, the heat -, Laser -, UV -.

The principle of any type of whitening in the doctor's room is that the active ingredients of Bleaching penetrate the Gel in the position to a certain depth in the enamel of the tooth, decolorizing coloured compounds, which accumulated here for years. The surface of the tooth is brighter.

The result of bleaching depends on many factors, but the most important are the following:

  • The quality of the material used (here, it is not so much about the safety of the gel on the tooth enamel, how much over the percentage of the active component, the rheology of the gel, the bearings of the stabilizer and other auxiliary materials);
  • The presence of additional activators, which speed up processes and to a different extent, determine the final color of the tooth;
  • The time of exposure of the gel.

Implementation of Desktop teeth whitening sensitive teeth, but this procedure is not as gentle and safe. If the customer insists on his knowledge of an increased sensitivity of tooth enamel, during the treatment, it can be very severe pain. As a result, even if the effect and can be achieved, but the Email is added to substantial damage.

In any case, Desktop teeth whitening way is considered to be the best (most effective) to achieve white teeth, but the cost of the procedure, can, not everyone can afford.

The most important difference whitening in the doctor's room of the self-employed (main) – it is his control. A professional dentist will do his best to minimize the risks and undesired consequences of the procedure. For example, special attention to the protection of the mucosa from the penetration of the Gel, to realize what difficult types of whitening at home – so not rare are the cases of the title are the skin on the practice team with burns of the mucous membrane, e.g. after the application of bleaching strips or pens.

How safe are the Folk of "whitening" agents are?

Among a large number of Folk-method of the teeth bleaching the most popular are probably all sorts of variations with application of Soda, salt, lemon, wood ash (or coal) and strawberries. Most of these experiments on the teeth is not very safe whitening of the teeth, of which guests reviews and experienced it for yourself.

First, every person different algorithms, with the grinding and polishing of the teeth of the same Soda, mixed with a little understand. Secondly, all the different ideas, the measures have (someone can properly brush teeth for 1 Minute, and someone can violently RUB with a quarter of an hour). Thirdly, which is different for each Person, the condition of the gums, as well as the number of Plaque on the surface of the enamel and its individual color properties.

Almost all of the traditional methods of tooth whitening are only for the cleaning of dental plaque, polishing achieved products (Soda ash, coal), organic acids from fruits, vegetables, etc.

The rules of food intake after teeth whitening

Recommendations to the bleaching of the teeth is an important stage in the work of the dentist, so that you can, to some extent, you can protect your work from possible claims on the part of the patient.

First of all, you need to warn about an increased sensitivity of the teeth in a few days. Even after the restoration of the disturbed structure of the tooth enamel (in the remineralizuûŝej therapy), the teeth are usually "not sweet", so the time for the return of the former abundance of life.

Secondly, after the tooth whitening the so-called white diet or a list of foods begins given that absolutely do not eat or drink for the first week. Of course, cigarettes, strong coffee, tea, red wines is desirable, as the long term. Such a "transparent" nutrition after the bleaching of the teeth extends the life of the surviving Hollywood smile.
