Teeth Whitening In Glyfada

Teeth whitening is a form of dentistry and should only be carried out by a dentist or another regulated dental professional, such as a dental hygienist or dental therapist.

Χάρη σε αυτή την θεραπεία οι ασθενείς  με κίτρινα δόντια έχουν τη δυνατότητα να βελτιώσουν την εμφάνιση των δοντιών τους και να αποκτήσουν και πάλι ένα υγιές και λαμπερό χαμόγελο. Υπάρχουν διάφορες τεχνικές λεύκανσης των δοντιών σας, όπως τα μασελάκια ή το led (λέιζερ) τα οποία επιτρέπουν στον ασθενή να πραγματοποιήσει την θεραπεία ανάλογα με τις ανάγκες της καθημερινότητας .

Who can have their teeth whitened?

  • People that are over 18 years old.
  • Have healthy gums and teeth. A patient whose teeth need filling or gingivitisperiodontitis, should be treated first and then start the teeth whitening process.
  • Teeth whitening is prohibited when the patient is under 18 years of age, during pregnancy and lactation

It is important to mention that artificial prosthetic restorations should be changed after treatment is completed. This is needs to happens since the new color of your whitened teeth will not match the old color.

These are the prosthetic restorations:

  • Dental fillings in the front teeth
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Composite Veneers

What are the teeth whitening techniques?

There are 3 types of tooth whitening techniques 

  1. Teeth whitening with led (laser).
  2. Teeth whitening at home with customized trays.
  3. The combination of both

It is important to mention that before starting the teeth whitening process, the teeth should be cleaned.

Teeth whitening with led (laser).

Teeth whitening with led (laser) takes place exclusively in a dental clinic.

When whitening teeth with a laser, the dentist places a whitening product on the surface of the patient's teeth.

It then uses a led light (also known as a laser) which activates the bleach product placed before.

Laser bleaching takes about two hours.

The time of exposure to the led (laser) as well as the whitening material placed on the patient's teeth depend on the agreed treatment plan.

Teeth whitening at home with customized trays.

Teeth whitening can be done at home using teeth whitening trays.

It is important to mention that in order to start the teeth whitening treatment with toothpicks, they must be made. At this stage the dentist simply takes the dental impressions of the upper and lower jaw.

In order to achieve the desired result it is necessary to use the customised whitening trays for at least 4 hours in the morning or evening for the next 10 - 20 days. The duration of treatment is different for each patient.

Teeth whitening - Before & After

What foods should I avoid?

After completion of the treatment you should avoid foods and drinks with strong colors.

  • Chocolate
  • Tomato
  • Beets
  • Strawberry
  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea

In case you can not avoid consuming one or more of the above, it is recommended to brush your teeth after consuming food.

If you are a coffee lover, we would suggest that you consume it with a straw, in order to avoid contact with the front surface of the teeth.

How much does it last?

Teeth whitening with led or toothpicks, is an aesthetic dental treatment whose results decline over time. Generally teeth whitening lasts from 6 months up to 2 years. This wide range exists because the duration of the effect depends on the patient's habits.

For example, if a patient smokes or does not pay attention to his oral hygiene, the effect will fade faster.

That's why we usually recommend the repeat of the whitening treatment once or twice a year.

Does it hurt?

Teeth whitening treatment is completely painless procedure. The factors that the dentist should look for in order for you to have a painless treatment are: 

  1. Eroding teeth or exposed dentin areas. If any of these are noticed by the dentist, they should be covered with a white dental filling to keep the best aesthetic result.
  2. Use the right amount and quality of teeth whitening material.
  3. Proper construction of the customized whitening trays, in order for them to fit properly and the gel does not escape.

If there are any symptoms, they will be minor. At the same time, the treatment can be stopped for a few days or it could be done every other day.

I took my son for an emergency extraction whilst on holiday. I was extremely impressed with the speed and efficiency Maria demonstrated. My son felt at ease and the tooth was taken out without complications. In so far as I booked myself a check up and proceeded with a dental hygiene session too! Superb results in a modern and immaculately clean surgery . Thank you Maria!

I visited Dr. Maria Lalousi for a check and cleaning of my teeth at the urging of my husband who had kindly visited her and was completely satisfied. I must mention that unfortunately my fear had kept me away from the dentist for a very long time / years… After quite easy and difficult fillings and replacement of an old case I want to say a big thank you because with her character and her professionalism with convinced that it was worth trusting her with the above! I must emphasize that she manages to be patient and friendly. The rules of hygiene are perfectly observed and the doctor's office, the machines and everything she uses are really impressive.
