¿What causes that my yellow teeth?
The daily consumption of foods that tend to color the teeth (coffee, wine, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, tomato, soft drinks, among others) and also the frequent intake of nicotine, causes the teeth to pigment. As a result, and although we do not notice it, the smile loses its shine.
¿Is tooth whitening effective for all patients?
Most people who have healthy teeth respond very well to treatment. Our specialists will advise you for your particular case.
¿How long will my whitening results last?
This varies from person to person, depending on your diet and habits, however most teeth whitening will last between 1-3 years. Our specialist will analyze your case and advise you on the results you can expect with the treatment.
¿What should I avoid after treatment?
Temporarily you shouldn’t consume specific foods and beverages. During the first week avoid coffee, tea, red wine, tobacco, as well as all foods with a lot of color (strawberries, beet, tomato, carrots, among others).
¿Do bridges, veneers or crowns change color?
No, restorations and prostheses don’t change color during treatment.
¿How long does a Whitening session last?
The whitening sessions last approximately one hour which includes the preparation of the mouth, the protection of the soft tissues and the reconditioning of the teeth after the procedure.
¿How does the teeth whitening treatment work?
Your gums and other soft tissues of the mouth are protected by thorough application of a gingival barrier cream. This barrier is then “photo-cured” using a very weak UV light to improve its protective effect while your eyes are covered by specialised lenses. We apply the whitening product, a UV-activated gel formula, while you relax listening to music in one of our air-conditioned surgeries. A single whitening session may last between 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your case. Some of our previous patients have reported better results over several sessions.
