Bleaching What types of bleaching are there? A thorough professional cleaning in the dental practice removes most superficial discolouration caused by food or tobacco. The use of so-called whitening tooth pastes can also help to reduce superficial discolouration between two visits to the dentist. But discolouration that exists since years most likely requires professional bleaching to remove stubborn discolouration. Internal discolouration can be removed by either bleaching the teeth, or by covering the visible areas with ceramic veneers to change their colour. All those methods are safe and effective. Your dentist will provide advice about which treatment is best for you depending on the given situation and the results you want to achieve. In order to do that your dentist will take into consideration: type and extension of the discolouration, how much tooth structure is still present (does the tooth have a filling? Must the shape of the tooth be changed or is a change desired?). Bleaching at home The bleaching of teeth at home is the preferred method nowadays. Your dentist takes an impression of your teeth and produces a customised bleaching tray that you fill with bleaching material and wear for up to two hours - day or night - over a period of two weeks. Many bleaching materials that are prescribed by the dentist contain 10 – 15 % carbamide peroxide. Home bleaching is very successful it monitored by a dentist. Bleaching in the dental practice This method is not used as often and is more expensive. It takes between 30 minutes and one hour per visit, and you will probably have to visit the practice several times until the desired whitening effect of your teeth is achieved. In order to protect your mouth a gel-like substance will be applied to your gums and a "rubber shield" attached to the necks of your teeth. Then the oxidisation agent (the bleaching solution) will be applied to your teeth. Sometimes a special lamp, which activates the bleaching agent, is used at intervals of 5 minutes. ------------------------------------ Frequently asked questions ------------------------------------ How does the Mirawhite® pro bleaching gel work? After it is applied the gel releases active oxygen which removes accretion and deeper seated discolouration in the enamel. How long does one application take? The gel can be applied in less than one minute and starts to work immediately. After 8-10 minutes is has developed its full effectiveness. Rinse your mouth afterwards, ready! Do not eat, drink or smoke while the gel is applied and for approx. 15 minutes afterwards. How quick can I expect results after the application? The first results should be visible after the third day of use, but the individual success depends on the natural tooth colour and the degree of discolouration. The final result of the treatment becomes evident after seven days. Does Mirawhite® pro also whiten the technical dental parts? Only natural teeth can be whitened (but crowns, bridges, veneers and filling materials not). However, the gel will not harm technical parts. What happens if I accidentally swallow some gel? The product is safe when used in the normally allotted amount and in accordance with the instructions of use. Swallowing a small amount of gel is harmless. Consult a physician in case a larger quantity is swallowed. What happens if some gel gets in my eyes? If gel gets in the eye, the eye should be rinsed thoroughly with cold water. In case of persisting symptoms a physician should be seen. • Brush For an easy and precise application • Pen Convenient, slender design facilitates safe use in the oral area • Gel chamber Contains the all-in-one gel and an applicator – no leakage, no drying out • Dosage wheel Allows for an easy and safe dispensing of the gel ------------------------------------------------ Instructions for use ------------------------------------------------ 1.
