“QUICKWHITE” TEETH WHITENING IS FAST, PAINLESS AND NON-AGGRESSIVE.
Teeth whitening is one of the most demanded aesthetic dental treatments, since a great aesthetic change is achieved: it rejuvenates the mouth and provides a brighter and more beautiful smile which can be shown off without complexes.
Until recently, teeth whitening systems were expensive, unsatisfactory and aggressive. Nowadays, however, treatments with a high degree of satisfaction have been developed thanks to the application of the latest technologies to the dental aesthetics field, and in a 40-minute session teeth can be whitened from four to twelve tones. Besides, with maintenance procedures the outcome can last a lifetime.
WHY DO TEETH LOSE THEIR NATURAL COLOUR?
Teeth age just as the rest of our body. They start doing so since the age of twenty-five. The dentine, consisting of millions of dentinal microtubules, gets oxidized and turns to a yellow or dark brown colour reflected by the enamel as if it was a glass. This ageing process is faster if we do not have good dental hygiene and we abuse of certain foods such as coffee, tee, wine or coke, and also of tobacco.
There are many reasons why stains might appear on teeth, such as medications containing tetracyclines which, at early ages, cause the dentine to turn to an unsightly purplish tone. It can only be softened by teeth whitening.
“QUICK WHITE” TECHONOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS
The real revolution of this innovative teeth whitening system lies in the ease of treatment: a thirty-minute session in the clinic makes a noticeable difference.
The system photo-activates the active substance using cold light, thanks to the latest-generation 85 LED lamp “Luma Cool”, which ensures full lighting on both arches at the same time. According to all scientific studies, the LED light (Light Electric Diode) is the most suitable for teeth whitening since it does not raise the temperature of the patient’s mouth.
The light output spectrum is also important. Specifically, Luma Cool has a (380 NM- 530 NM) spectrum, the widest spectrum among all those existing in the market, which multiplies the whitening effect.
The hydrogen peroxide (H202), the only one photo-activated by cold light, is used in higher and more efficient concentrations. It also includes Energy Transfer Controllers (ETC), which selectively absorb the light of the double-arch LED lamp Luma Cool, accelerating reaction times. Thus, the expected outcome is achieved in a shorter time. Besides, it respects the natural pH and does not damage the mucosa or the enamel.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT ENTAIL?
A diagnostic process is carried out in the first place: the reason for consultation, prior history of discolouration, a patient’s habits examination, prior dental treatments or other aesthetic treatments. Then, the colour is registered with the VITA shade guide and before and after photos are recorded. If there is any dental problem, first of all it must be solved: caries, dental cleaning… After these steps, the teeth whitening begins.
First, a protective substance is applied on the gum, and then the teeth are dabbed with the whitening product. It is left to work for 8-10 minutes, increasing its effect with the lamp that illuminates all the teeth at a time.
After this time, the gel is removed and another coat is applied. This operation is repeated three times.
Afterwards, the teeth are cleaned and brightened with a special paste. The treatment can be completed with a whitening kit at home.
