About Teeth Whitening

The process of teeth whitening is as follows: 

During your initial teeth whitening consultation with us, at our clinic in Luxembourg, We will first perform a complete oral examination to determine the health of your teeth, gums, and surrounding oral soft tissues. Post that, we will design a treatment plan which is safe and appropriate for you.  

 The procedure starts with thorough teeth cleaning to eliminate any plaque and calculus accumulation on the teeth surface and gum margins.  

Once adequate oral health is established, the process of teeth whitening begins.  

 Recent advances have suggested using laser and UV light during teeth whitening procedures. Exposing the whitening agent-laden teeth to laser/UV light allows the active ingredients, usually carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, to penetrate the teeth deeply. Doing so allows for faster results and reduces visits while ensuring the procedure is safe.  

 It is important to remember that teeth whitening may work differently for everyone. Some people may benefit from a single seating while others may require follow-up visits for desired results.

Cons of Teeth Whitening

  • Teeth whitening when performed in the presence of an active oral infection or complicating systemic condition, may worsen the condition.
  • Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution to brighten your teeth.
  • Teeth whitening may lead to temporary teeth sensitivity.
  •  Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that hardly produces any complications if done by a dental professional.
  • However, many brands have now come up with DIY and at-home teeth whitening solutions which are getting a lot of fame. The rampant marketing is making these solutions popular, and many people are opting for them. However, these DIY treatments are only a recipe for disaster. Many patients who self-treated themselves to get white teeth are reporting with brittle enamel and severe permanent teeth sensitivity.
