Methods of teeth whitening

Is the modern whitening safe for my teeth?
Yes, it is safe provided that it will be carried out by a qualified medical team that will use modern whitening agents, which don\’t cause any damage to the dentin.

Does the teeth whitening have any side-effects?
During or just after the procedure most of the patients feel, that their teeth are more sensitive to thermal stimuli (coldness or warmth), but this symptom is usually temporary and should disappear within a few days after finishing the treatment. In case of stroner hypersensitivity our patients have the fluoridation of all teeth done, what considerably shortens the period of hypersensitivity after the whitening treatment.

We offer 5 teeth whitening methods:

Opalescence TresWhite Supreme® teeth whitening system (Ultradent USA)


Special, ready-to-use, single-use trays, already filled with whitening gel that makes it possible to achieve very good aesthetic effects and high comfort of this procedure. TresWhite Supereme system consists of an outer tray which transfers an inner thin bleaching tray, filled with whitening gel. Thanks to special, innovative construction of double tray, it\’s possible to fit it precisely into the shape of dental arch. The tray encloses also the molars, not only front teeth. Special protective gel on the rim of the tray prevents the soft tissue from any irritation and because of added potassium nitrate and fluoride the hypersensitivity has been almost completely eliminated. The usage of TresWhite Supreme is really easy for the patient and brings quick and lasting effects. The trays should be worn 30 – 60 minutes each day. After this the trays should be removed, thrown away and the teeth should be cleaned. The whitening takes 10 days and the effects last for 2 years (depending on the diet, hygienic procedures and smoking habit).

Uzupełnienia protetyczne (np. korony i mosty) oraz wypełnienia pozostają bez zmian. W razie potrzeby, po ustabilizowaniu się koloru, (co trwa zwykle od 10 do 14 dni) lekarz stomatolog może je wymienić dobierając odpowiedni jaśniejszy kolor. W czasie wybielania u kilku procent pacjentów występuje przejściowa nadwrażliwość zębów na zimno ustępująca w ciągu jednego do trzech dni po zakończeniu kuracji.

Conventional teeth whitening

This is a system of professional teeth whitening which is carried out by the patient at home, but controlled and supervised by the dentist. Impressions of upper and lower jaw are taken and the patient gets celluloid custom-made bleaching trays. The Opalescence PF (Ultradent,USA) 10%, 15% or 20% whitening gel is transparent, thick and contains carbamide peroxide gel (whitening substance) and fluoride and potassium nitrate (additional ingredients) which prevent from hypersensitivity. After the patient is trained by our staff, he can apply the whitening gel into the trays by himself. This method is recommended to whiten vital and non-vital teeth. The effects turn out quickly and and are durable. Trays with 20% whitening gel need to be worn for 4 hours whereas the trays with 10% or 15% whitening gel should be worn for 8 – 10 hours (it\’s recommended to sleep with the trays). Intensive whitening effect can be achieved already after the first night. This whitening takes 7 – 10 days and the effect lasts for approx. 2 years (depending on the diet, hygienic procedures and smoking habit).

Prosthetic restorations (e.g. crowns and bridges) and fillings won\’t be whitened. If needed, after the colour is stabilized (what takes approx. 10 – 14 days) the dentist can replace the old crowns, bridges or fillings with whiter ones. During the whitening a small per cent of patients may feel hypersensitivity on coldness, but it goes by after a couple of days.

Whitening of non-vital teeth

  • Whitening of non-vital, dark and discoloured teeth by intrachamber method which is a little invasive method and enables saving the tooth tissues as compared with traditional prosthetic treatment (veneers, crowns)
  • removing of discolouration created by inborn factors, metabolic, pharmacologic by e.g. Dental fluorosis, treatment with antibiotics
  • fillings cannot be whitened that\’s why it\’s recommended to whiten dark teeth before having fillings replaced. New fillings should be done after approx. 2 weeks from the moment of teeth whitening. Thanks to whitening it\’s possible to have whiter fillings which match the new, more natural teeth colour, sometimes even whiter than the colour expected by the patient.
