BLEACHING OF TEETH
Concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide are able to bleach enamel quickly and effectively – the effect is noticeable after only one session. For this procedure the gums need to be protected by a mask against chemical burn. Length of session approximately one hour. All studies to date have shown no negative effects when used on healthy teeth. One possible temporary side-effect is an increased sensitivity of the neck of the tooth. Not every type of enamel is lightened to the same degree (red-brown enamel does not respond as well to lightening).
