Dental cosmetics is a part of dental esthetics which aims to improve the aspect of the teeth through whitening and dental jewelry. Teeth whitening is about adjusting the color of the teeth from their natural color to a lighter shade.
It involves applying an active substance to the surface of the tooth, following the isolation of the gums and soft parts. A special lamp activates the solution. Meanwhile, the patient can relax in a serene atmosphere. It is a quick and efficient treatment and lasts around an hour and a half.
The results are spectacular, since you can go 2-4 shades lighter. Prior to whitening, a plaque removal and professional brushing are required 24 hours before. Following the treatment, it is advised that the patient doesn’t consume colored liquids. Smoking is prohibited. A slight dental sensitivity might occur for 1-2 days, which can be reduced using a fluoride solution.
It involves using some trays which are designed in the dental laboratory. A gel solution is applied in the trays. This is designed for patients who want gradual teeth whitening. The trays are worn every day for a couple of hours until the desired result it is reached. It can also be used to preserve the professional teeth whitening effect.
You can add glamour and personality to your smile using jewelry. They can only be applied to previously whitened and cleaned teeth. Applying them otherwise, may worsen the appearance.
