Although discoloured teeth are medically harmless, they are sometimes disturbing from a cosmetic point of view. If you want a bright smile with beautiful white teeth, you can have your teeth bleached.
However, before we recommend bleaching, our dentist will take a close look at your teeth and gums. Because your teeth must be completely free of caries for the treatment. The gums must also be healthy.
It is also important to know that dental fillings and veneers made of ceramic or composite such as crowns and bridges cannot be bleached. The dentist can, however, correct the colour differences afterwards with new fillings.
If you have decided to have your teeth bleached, the dentist first removes deposits and discolouration from the tooth surfaces with the help of professional tooth cleaning (PZR). Whatever is dark after that is removed with the help of teeth whitening.
