Dental bleaching & teeth whitening in Berlin | Die Praxis Mitte

Teeth Whitening

Beautiful, white teeth are a classic ideal of beauty and stand for health and youth. However, with increasing age and due to lifestyle and consumer habits, the tooth enamel can darken considerably. We can help here! With professional teeth whitening in Berlin, Praxis Mitte offers a solution to remove the undesired discolouration of your teeth and brighten your smile again.

What is bleaching?

Bleaching – also referred to as teeth whitening – is an effective treatment method in which the unattractive discolouration of the inner part of the teeth is eliminated. As a result, the tooth appears brighter and whiter after the treatment. The whitening is achieved by using a pH-neutral bleaching agent. This method is non-invasive and very gentle on the tooth structure. The gums are covered with a protective mask to protect them from the bleaching agent. The active ingredient is then activated by heat and the UV light. Oxygen is released and dissolves the staining substances in the tooth substance. Bleaching is not always completely pain-free. However, it is gentle on the teeth and the result is always very convincing.

Why teeth whitening in the Praxis Mitte in Berlin?

Professional dental bleaching is a type of medical treatment. For the best possible results, it should therefore be carried out by a dentist. The well experienced team at Praxis Mitte offers in-office bleaching in Berlin. Before whitening your teeth, we will advise you in detail about practicability and possible treatments. We will also discuss potential risks as well as the effects on existing dental fillings and the upcoming treatment costs. We also check whether there are any dental conditions such as cavities or periodontitis that should be treated beforehand.

Bleaching materials used in our dental practice in Berlin Mitte are not comparable to the products you can buy at drug stores or the ones that are used at cosmetic studios. This is because we use medical products that contain significantly higher concentrations of bleaching agent. Teeth whitening in Praxis Mitte produces significantly better results. The desired bleaching effect also lasts longer.

In order to obtain long-lasting white teeth, the first step before the actual bleaching process is a professional teeth cleaning. This removes even slight discolourations on the surface. Furthermore, the removal of plaque will facilitate the subsequent whitening of the teeth.

For whom is bleaching suitable?

Teeth whitening is a proper treatment for patients with healthy teeth. This means with no fillings or crowns in the visible area or with only small restorations. Dental fillings and crowns cannot be whitened. If older plastic fillings have become heavily discoloured and are therefore optically noticeable, it is possible to replace them with new fillings. Teeth whitening for patients with veneers is not possible.

Is teeth whitening risky?

Professionally performed tooth whitening is a medically safe treatment. It is not necessarily entirely painless, and the teeth may be somewhat hypersensitive for a short time both during and after the whitening process.

How long does bleaching take?

The bleaching process usually takes between 1 and 1.5 hours, depending on the desired tooth colour. After bleaching, you can immediately take part in social life again.

What should be considered after bleaching?

In the first 24 hours after the procedure, the teeth are particularly sensitive. Since the tooth substance loses some moisture during bleaching and the bleaching agent briefly expands the surface pores of the teeth, you should avoid extremely staining foods and stimulants for 10 days. This includes smoking, coffee and black tea, turmeric, curry, blueberries, beetroot, etc.
To counteract the hypersensitivity of the teeth, we recommend using a toothpaste for pain-sensitive teeth.

How long does the result of the teeth whitening last?

The longevity of the result depends greatly on individual oral hygiene as well as dietary habits. Basically, the effect does not actually wear off, but new pigments are deposited again. Regular professional tooth cleaning can remove staining deposits so that the teeth retain their bright colour for longer.

Are the costs of tooth bleaching covered by the health insurance?

Bleaching is an aesthetic dental treatment and falls under the iGeL services (“individuelle Gesundheitsleistungen” = individual health benefits). Since it does not represent a medical necessity, the costs are not covered by public health insurances. We will be happy to consult with you and provide you with an individual cost plan in advance.

Why do teeth become darker anyway?

Over time, teeth gradually become darker. This is a natural process that is intensified by consumption and lifestyle habits. Daily oral hygiene at home is often not enough to stop this process. The consumption of strongly staining foods and other stimulants such as smoking, red wine, coffee or black tea can contribute to deposits of dark pigments in the teeth. Taking certain medications can also cause unwanted discolouration of the tooth enamel. Furthermore, so-called internal causes (e.g. accidents with injury to the teeth, root canal treatment, tooth decay or malnutrition) can change the colour of the teeth.
