What Are The Different Teeth Whitening Treatments Available in Zadar?

Just like at home, there are a number of different teeth whitening treatments you can take advantage of in Zadar.

1: Laser Teeth Whitening: This is by far the most effective teeth whitening treatment available, whitening your teeth by up to 14 shades. It is carried out at your dentist’s clinic, and typically takes one to two hours to complete.

2: At-home Whitening Kits: Are also available from your dentist. For this treatment, the dentist will take impressions of your mouth which are sent to a lab where trays are made to fit over your teeth. You place the whitening gel in the trays and wear them (usually overnight) for a period of up to two weeks until you are happy with the shade achieved. While not as dramatic as laser teeth whitening, they will make your teeth noticeably whiter. You will need two trips to the dentist for this procedure—the first to have the impressions made, and the next to pick your trays and gel up.

3: Over-The-Counter Whitening Kits: Available from pharmacies and drug stores with varying degrees of efficacy.

Am I Suitable for Teeth Whitening Treatments?

This is something your dentist will discuss with you. As with many cosmetic dentistry treatments, it is only effective (and safe) if you are in good dental health to start with.

If you do have oral health problems, including tooth decay or active gum disease, then teeth whitening treatment is not the best option until you have your oral health issues under control. Teeth whitening treatments administered by your dentist contain strong bleaching agents which can cause permanent damage to teeth and gums, leaving you with bigger dental health problems to contend with, but also possibly with permanent pain or increased tooth sensitivity.

If you have staining on your teeth caused by antibiotics, it is unlikely that teeth whitening treatments will have much effect. This is because the stains are on the inside of the tooth, rather than the outside. In these cases, the best course of action is to have dental veneers, which effectively cover the teeth (and any staining).

It is always advisable to follow the safety tips for teeth whitening, making sure you don’t overuse products and heeding your dentist’s advice.

What Does the Procedure for Teeth Whitening Entail? How Long Will it Take?

Laser Teeth Whitening: Your dentist will first examine your mouth to make sure your oral health is good and you’re a good candidate for laser teeth whitening. If all is well, the next step is a thorough teeth cleaning to remove stubborn stains and hardened plaque (tartar). After that, you will be given protective goggles to shield your eyes from the bright light of the laser beam, and your dentist will place a rubber dam around your teeth to ensure the bleaching gel does not get into contact with the soft tissues in your mouth.

Following these preparations, the dentist will apply the whitening gel to the teeth and a laser beam is directed at the gel to activate the bleaching agents. Depending on what whitening system your dentist is using, the procedure may differ at this point. For example, some systems require one 45-minute application, while others apply the gel and laser three times at 15-minute intervals. Whichever system your dentist uses, the results will be equally as effective.

Once the last round is complete, the dentist will remove the gel and clean the teeth again to remove all traces of it. Now, you new, brighter, whiter smile is now ready to show off to the world.

At-Home Whitening Kits: It will usually take a few days from your first appointment at the dentist when impressions are taken to when you can go back to pick up the trays and gel. Your dentist will demonstrate how they should be used (if they didn’t do that already at the first appointment).

You can keep the trays after you have finished your whitening gel to use again as you can pick up more gel from your dentist at home—being careful not to overdo it!
