Teeth whitening at DentAL Zahnarztpraxis Frankfurt
The natural aging process of the teeth also changes their colour over time. Typical causes of discoloration are tobacco, tea, coffee, red wine, cola and some medicines. Whitening teeth (bleaching) destroys the dyes.
The active ingredient used is always the same, regardless of whether bleaching is carried out with over-the-counter strips (although the concentration is lower here), splints or applied directly to the teeth: Hydrogen peroxide, H2O2.
Hydrogen peroxide used to be used to disinfect the oral cavity, but the effect of teeth whitening was discovered by chance. The unstable H2O2 disintegrates into water and reactive oxygen, which splits dyes.
TEETH WHITENING AND PROFESSIONAL TOOTH CLEANING WITHOUT ANY HEALTH SIDE EFFECTS.
Please note that fillings and ceramic restorations (e.g. crowns) cannot be whitened.
In the course of life, the teeth wear out and the enamel discolours. Most people only know bright white teeth from children. It does not matter how well and thoroughly you brush your teeth. The natural discolorations cannot be reduced by brushing normal teeth. Even root canal treatment is often to blame for the discoloration of teeth and cannot be avoided.
What is Bleaching?
Bleaching is generally understood to be artificial tooth whitening. Similar to the whitening of hair, teeth are whitened with hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide ensures that the colour pigments on the teeth fade and the tooth becomes lighter as a result.
Requirements for tooth whitening Frankfurt
The basic prerequisite for bleaching is that the teeth are clean and healthy. Therefore, professional tooth cleaning should be carried out no more than six weeks before teeth whitening. It is important to know that only natural teeth can be whitened during tooth whitening in Frankfurt. The PZR has no influence on crowns or fillings.
How long does the effect of bleaching last?
The duration of the effect of tooth whitening in Frankfurt depends on the personal habits of the patient. Those who have their teeth cleaned professionally on a regular basis and also take good care of their teeth will be able to enjoy their white teeth for longer. Especially smokers or people who drink a lot of coffee may have discolorations on their teeth after only a few months. However, there is no reason why teeth whitening should not be repeated in Frankfurt after a few months in order to achieve the whitening effect again.
