Preliminary oral check-up
Dental Whitening Geneva
Tooth whitening is a process that aims to lighten the staining of enamel and dentin by means of a gel based on hydrogen peroxide (hydrogen peroxide).
However, no whitening treatment should be carried out without a prior oral check-up, during which your dentist will make sure that there are no contraindications (untreated caries, devitalized teeth, weak enamel, gum irritation, etc.).
Bleaching is a technique that lightens the internal colour of teeth to give them a more attractive shine and brilliance.
There are different techniques to whiten teeth without making dentures (veneers or crowns). The most suitable technique will be proposed after a complete check-up of the patient's mouth and smile.
TOOTH WHITENING GENEVA : IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE MAKING AN APPOINTMENT
Results may vary depending on the nature of my enamel and my oral hygiene habits. Bleaching is not intended to lighten crowns, veneers or any other dental restorations, and therefore, these restorations may show a shift in shade from natural teeth following bleaching.
Pain - Sensitivity: Certain conditions can increase or prolong the sensitivity that normally occurs in the first 24 hours following the start of bleaching, including dentine hypersensitivity, gum recession, dental fissures, caries, and defective fillings.
