The first step towards dental bleaching is a visit to your dentist.
Do not whiten the teeth after the ones heard on TV, friends, pharmacies! Bad bleaching can make you much worse.
The dentist is the one who recommends a whitening depending on the dental status.
First, if there are cavities in the teeth to be whitened, the fronts, or the old plums, these are done before bleaching.
Whitening does not change the color of the fillings or crowns, only the vital teeth bleach. Prior to bleaching, it is mandatory for the teeth to be clean.
The dentist will perform the scrub and a professional brushing before bleaching begins.
Dental bleaching can cause tooth sensitivity lasting a few days.
What do we need to be careful about in the first few days after bleaching?
Avoid very cold or hot food.
Rinse mouth with lukewarm water.
Using fluoride toothpastes.
Making a fluoridation in the dental office (apply a gel containing fluorine in a higher concentration than in toothpastes).
Administration of an anti-inflammatory agent after the bleaching procedure has ended.
Toothbrush foods should be consumed with care Whitening is maintained depending on how we care for white teeth.
Any toothbrush should be consumed with care!
To avoid dental sensitivity, we need to pay attention to foods that are too hot or too cold.
After drinking red wine, blueberries, coffee, black or green tea, it is imperative to rinse our mouth with plain water or mouthwash, use sugar-free chewing gum and brush your teeth twice a day. This is also recommended for smokers.
Mouthwash containing chlorhexidine should not be used for more than 2 weeks.
To maintain the dental whitening as much as possible, more attention should be paid to tooth hygiene and also visit your dentist as often as you can.
