Teeth Whitening

teeth-whitening-medellin-colombia-toothTeeth whitening is the lightening of the teeth’s color and translucency when there are spots or pigmentation. It will depend on the origin of the pigmentations as to whether bleaching may or may not be used. Bleaching is a treatment that should be done under the supervision of a dentist because of the use of some household products can change teeth color.

At Dental Home we are aware of the importance of having an attractive smile and that is why we offer a choice of techniques to lighten teeth and give a clearer, brighter appearance. Dental Home offers both:


Is teeth whitening a safe procedure that will not damage teeth?

Today there is scientific evidence that allows us to be sure that a whitening treatment performed by specialist with appropriate products will not result in damage or loss of teeth. At Dental Home, we have searched the globe for the best technology and products to use in the care of our clients and their teeth.

Can all types of stains be removed with whitening?

Not all stains or pigmentation can be removed with teeth whitening because some are deeper than others and therefore more difficult to treat.

Some color changes arise when certain medications penetrate the teeth in the introductory stage. Such is the case with the antibiotic tetracycline. These pigments are called intrinsic and affect not only the surface layer of the teeth, but they also involve the dentin, which is more internal than the enamel. Stains from tetracycline (commonly used antibiotic) have variables: color, depth and location. This appears more frequently when the medication is consumed by the mother during pregnancy or early childhood. For cases where stains cannot be removed with whitening, Dental Home offers other solutions that will allow you to have natural and beautiful color which include resin veneers or dental contact lenses.

How often can teeth whitening procedures be repeated?

Generally, teeth whitening can be performed once a year for teeth clarification but can only be provided if teeth are not too sensitive, the teeth enamel is in good condition and overall oral health is satisfactory. Dental Home Specialists will analyze the state of the teeth and detect the saturation limit of the enamel. If teeth have reached the saturation limit, it is not advisable to perform teeth whitening again.

If I have resin, crowns or other types of restoration in my teeth, can I still have a teeth whitening procedure?

Teeth whitening has no effect on any type of restorations. Because of this, Dental Home recommends whitening first and that clients wait 15 days (time required for color stabilization of the teeth) before replacement of restorations with the new color achieved, since resins do not change color with whitening.
