How is teeth whitening performed?

Before the teeth whitening treatment, the specialist checks the health of the gums and detects possible pathologies. It is necessary to ensure that there are no hidden cavities and perform a complete professional dental cleaning.

eeth whitening with cold light or LED lamp is an advanced technique used in dental clinics. It involves the application of a whitening gel to the patient's teeth, composed of a hydrogen peroxide concentration ranging from 35% to 40%, depending on the brand.

Once the gel is applied, the light lamp is activated to act on the teeth. LED dental whitening stands out for its speed, significantly accelerating the whitening process. This technique is exclusively performed in the dental clinic, always under the supervision of a professional.

Due to its effectiveness and speed, the cost of LED light teeth whitening is typically higher compared to at-home whitening methods.

Types of teeth whitening

External whitening

The most common teeth whitening is performed on vital teeth with whitening substances on the tooth surface and with a cold light or LED lamp that is performed in the clinic in a single session. It's faster and more expensive. 
There is also tray whitening that is done at home with custom trays that are filled with teeth whitener and can be worn day or night, depending on the concentration of the gel.

Internal whitening

Internal teeth whitening is a technique used only on teeth that are severely stained due to trauma or root canal treatment (endodontics).

Unlike external whitening, which acts on the entire mouth, internal whitening is performed specifically on a single tooth and concentrates on the internal structures of the tooth, in the pulp chamber. This procedure lightens the inner layer of the tooth, that is, the dentin.

It is important to keep in mind that to carry out internal whitening, it is necessary that the dental structure is in good condition.
