    TEETH WHITENING - POSSIBILITIES AND LIMITS -

    Teeth whitening is an aesthetic, non-restorative procedure that can lead to a change in the color and shade of the teeth. For this procedure to be more understandable, it is necessary to point out some physical characteristics and disorders of the teeth incorporated. Today, hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide-based gels are most often used for teeth whitening, and the primary reaction in teeth whitening is the oxidation reaction. A correct diagnosis and an adequate treatment plan are necessary for successful teeth whitening therapy. The therapy plan includes the selection of a proper whitening technique depending on the type of discoloration and whether the whitening is applied to vital or avital teeth. In the lecture, clinical cases of bleaching of different causes of discoloration will be presented, with a step-by-step presentation of clinical methods. Limits and possibilities of teeth whitening will be discussed, and answers to the most frequently asked questions related to this topic will be given.
