Today, different pastes and solutions are used for tooth whitening. Chemical agents dissolve the surface layer of enamel and / or oxidize the tooth substance. Such treatment necessarily involves the protection with certain fluorine preparations. In a number of cases, patients feel pain if exposed to sweet substances, cold, and heat. The increased sensitivity of the tooth is mostly temporary and gradually disappears after the bleeding stops. After whitening, teeth are more sensitive to coloured food and beverages (coffee, carbonated juices, tea, wine) and they should be avoided. After bleaching, tobacco products should be avoided as well, as they bring back dark colouring of the teeth.
It’s nice to have bright teeth. The colour of teeth can be changed in different ways. So, now that we already bleach our teeth or create dental bridges, the teeth may at least be white. Still, be careful! The tooth has its own natural colour that has a whole range of visual effects. With age, the teeth become darker, but retain their optical properties. Therefore, when you put in bridges, consider whether you want everyone to see that you have nice new monochrome white teeth you didn’t even have as a child, or you want natural teeth that will enhance your appearance…

DENTAL CROWNS AND BRIDGES
Veneers are ceramic laminates placed on the front surface of the tooth to obtain a lighter colour, close the spaces, or repair the chipped or worn-out teeth. The veneers are thin and, like a partial crown, cover only the visible part of the tooth. They are mostly done on the front teeth. Excellent aesthetics can be achieved with ceramic as a material, and ever thinner laminates are being created with the development of the technology. When veneers are placed on a tooth, it does not look thicker. Veneers can be optimally adapted to the individual colour, shape, and surface of the tooth. Their advantage is that they can easily cover deformations and tooth discolorations. Their price equals the price of a ceramic crown, but they require less drilling of the natural tooth. However, due to the relatively small and flat surface to which they are bonded, they are sensitive to excessive force. Therefore, they are not advisable in, for example, patients who grind their teeth because excessive forces may cause them to break.

– inability to open mouth
