Teeth whitening is a procedure in which the tooth’s natural surface is not removed to turn the yellowed shade of the tooth into white. Teeth whitening, one of the esthetic dental treatments, is performed by the dentist using a special whitening technique.
Depending on the consumption of cigarettes, tea, coffee, and various foods, staining, and yellowing of the tooth surface may occur over time. The accumulation of tartar, high fluoride, or antibiotic consumption can also lead to staining. This condition, which cannot be eliminated by regular brushing, is restored to a natural appearance by the dentist using special equipment and a reliable whitening system called polishing.
It should be noted that teeth whitening gives different tooth appearances in yellowish, gray, or brown tones. Similarly, whitening will not bring results on teeth that have been provided with fillings, laminates, and veneers. Reliable knowledge and techniques should be determined by the dentist’s examination.
