IN-OFFICE TOOTH BLEACHING
In-office bleaching is particularly well suited for patients who want to avoid wearing a bleaching rail and want visible result in a short time. The in-office whitening is performed using the Philips ZOOM lamp and is directly carried out in one of our dental practices. The Philips ZOOM light-activated tooth whitening intensifies the effect of the applied bleaching gel. Therefore, this lamp allows us to brighten your teeth up to a range of 8 colour shades, depending on the individual indication.
After a short preparation time where your gums and lips are covered, a bleaching gel is applied onto your teeth. Subsequently, the Philips ZOOM lamp is directed towards your teeth and in only 15 minutes the effect of the bleaching gel is activated. Depending on the desired colour shade this procedure can be repeated three to four times.
Moreover, it is also possible to whiten teeth, which either have a dead dental nerve or had previously undergone root canal treatment. However in those cases, whitening from the outside is not effective. Thus, the filling of the tooth is removed and the bleaching gel is subsequently filled into the root canal and remains there until the desired degree of whitening is achieved. After successful bleaching the tooth is sealed with a tooth-coloured plastic filling.
