Teeth whitening with the “Beyond” lamp is a good method to improve some of the aspects of your lifestyle and meet the personal expectations of having an aesthetically pleasing smile.
On the first visit a complete check is made to detect the need to perform previous treatments such as fillings, crowns, etc. Also, the structure of the enamel and the state of the gum are studied. It is essential to carry out different pre-treatment photographs. Only after this first review, and after having studied the patients expectations, we create an individualized treatment plan to achieve optimum results in each case.
Many patients are unaware that filings, veneers, crowns, bridges and dentures do not change color after bleaching.
In our clinic, we try to obtain the maximum cleaning and softness of the teeth. If the patient comes with very clean teeth, then we proceed to polish them, protect the gum with a special material (a barrier of light-curing resin) and begin with the whitening.
In the case of detecting plaque and if the patient is a smoker, before bleaching we use the Air Flow, cleaning the teeth without touching the tooth with the instruments, and then proceeding with the whitening.
The Air Flow is the most used method. It is an instrument that expels a jet of water at a large, but controlled pressure, adding a mixture of distilled water, fine particles, bicarbonate, soda and fluorine. During this procedure, plaque, bacteria and microorganisms are removed from the tooth enamel and the inter-dental space, and the enamel of the tooth is polished. It is impossible to damage the enamel of the tooth with this method, as it is no longer in contact with the tooth. Therefore, it is a procedure our patients tolerate with no problem.
