Teeth whitening is a very popular treatment in dentistry and almost everyone wants to have white and shiny teeth. Teeth whitening is a selective treatment that makes our teeth whiter and smoother and makes our smile more beautiful and attractive.

There are many ways to whiten teeth, including natural methods of tooth whitening, home-made products such as toothpaste, mouthwash, adhesive and gel kits, and more immediate and professional dental whitening. If you see a dentist to whiten teeth, this is done under his supervision so no complications and no care. And the necessary precautions are taken. In addition, before bleaching your teeth with bleaching, the dentist will examine your mouth thoroughly to make sure you have the necessary teeth whitening. For example, if your teeth have a mass, it may be best to have a scar first, or if you have caries, repair your teeth first. Products that your dentist uses to whiten teeth contain a high concentration of bleaching agent. The bleaching agent is a chemical that must be used carefully.


How does bleaching whiten teeth?

The active ingredients in tooth whitening chemicals consist of hydrogen peroxide. This compound is used as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide (carbamide). Carbamide peroxide is a stable compound that breaks into contact with water and becomes hydrogen peroxide. In bleaching, colorants called chromogens must be eliminated. Chromogen may accumulate on the surface of the tooth, causing superficial patches, or penetrating deep into the tooth and causing internal stains. The method of removing surface stains differs from that of deep stains.


Chromogens may be large organic compounds with double bond conjugation or composed of metal compounds. Purification of chromogens composed mostly of organic compounds is accomplished by breaking their conjugate double bonds. In the case of metal chromogens, it is more difficult to clean the stains. Other methods for whitening metallic chromogen stains include laminating and cladding.


Tooth whitening products

There are many products available today to eliminate tooth stains. The choice of whitening product depends on the type of stain you want to remove. However, teeth whitening products are generally divided into three groups:
Cleaners, like some toothpaste, are made up of abrasives and detergents to erase tooth surface chromogens.
Bleaching agents that react with chromogens to brighten the tooth
Products that are both cleansing and bleaching reactions
Home tooth whitening kits are mainly suitable for lightening partial tooth stains. However, to remove harder stains, teeth usually need to be professionally cleaned in the dental office. How long the tooth is cleaned depends on the length of time the teeth have been bleached and the concentration of the material.


Bleaching toothpaste

These pastes are essentially made up of large amounts of abrasive and detergent. A small amount of carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide may also be used to help brighten teeth in these toothpastes. However, these products do not have bleaching agents such as sodium hypochlorite for teeth whitening. Bleaching toothpaste can make one to two degrees of tooth whitening.


Bleaching glue

Bleaching glue is a plastic adhesive tape designed to be easily attached to the side or front surface of teeth exposed to smile. After the adhesive is applied to the teeth, the peroxide gel is slowly released into the teeth and affects the teeth. Bleaching glue is designed for home use and it is best to stay on the tooth for two to 30 minutes each time.


Bleaching Gel

Bleaching gels contain peroxide and are applied to the tooth surface with the help of a toothbrush. The gel should usually be used twice a day. Teeth whitening adhesives and gels can make the tooth color one to two degrees lighter.


Bleach rinse

These mouthwashes are made up of compounds such as hydrogen peroxide and react with chromogens. Rinse your mouth twice a day with a bleach rinse. Be careful to rinse your mouth for about 60 seconds at a time to affect the teeth. Usually, after three months of regular use, the teeth become whiter.


Customized gel and terry

The dentist can take the shape of your teeth and make a special plaque for your teeth whitening. To use, fill in the gel more and apply a toothpaste that resembles the teeth to make the gel come in contact with the teeth. Since it is tailor made for you it fits exactly the teeth and the gel does not protrude from it. The gel contains carbamide peroxide and should be in contact with the teeth for two to four hours a day or while sleeping.

Gel and Terry ready

You can make gel and terry ready as a kit from the pharmacy. The main problem with this method is that it is not the size of your teeth but is a one-size-fits-all so it can easily protrude and irritate the gums.


Are there any side effects to using toothbrushes?

Home-made teeth whitening products are generally safe if you buy a safe product and use it correctly and as directed on the product. However, long-term use of tooth whitening products is not recommended as it can have a bad impact on the health of the teeth and gums. Never use these products without your dentist's permission. Your mouth should first be examined and a product appropriate to your condition. The recommended time for whitening teeth with these products is only 14 days. Another important point is that you should not rely solely on bleach to keep your teeth white, but by maintaining oral hygiene, restricting pigmented foods, and timely whitening, you can maintain the whiteness of your teeth.

If you want to have your teeth whitened, the best thing to do is to get treatment with your dentist, as it is much less likely to cause complications. You may experience the following side effects if you do not use your teeth whitener properly:

  1. Tooth sensitivity after prolonged use of products
  2. Gum problems including mild gingivitis
  3. Loss of tooth minerals
  4. Increased risk of tooth decay
  5. Damage to the pulp (tooth core)
  6. Tooth erosion

Recent research has also shown that long-term use of tooth whitening agents can cause complications such as discoloration and deterioration of tooth filling.
