Bleaching in Munich
Bleaching is a purely aesthetic procedure and can only be carried out successfully under certain conditions. It is important to show you the possibilities and limits of this method in advance. Professional teeth cleaning at our clinic in Munich should be carried out urgently before.
There are basically two possibilities of bleaching:
- Office Bleaching: Here the bleaching is carried out in our Munich practice in one session. A bleaching gel is applied to the teeth in up to three sessions of 20 minutes each. The gums are protected beforehand by a special light-curing gel. This is the fastest method of bleaching and lasts for a very long time. Several shades of whitening can be achieved. With a shade guide the success can be controlled and followed up. The costs amount to approx. 280 Euro, for a single tooth bleaching approx. 45 Euro (It is charged according to the dentist's fee schedule, due to individual medical characteristics the price may vary slightly; incl. 19% VAT)
- Home bleaching with individually made splints: Individual bleaching splints are made after impressions of the patient, which are worn by the patient at home for a certain period of time. The advantage is the reusability and good control of the bleaching by the patient. The bleaching gel can be obtained from the practice at Munich when it is used up. The costs for a home bleaching set including bleaching gel amount to 299 Euro (incl. 19% VAT)
Is bleaching dangerous for the teeth? What risks does it involve?
If we carry out a tooth whitening at your place, we take all precautionary measures. Thus the intervention is not dangerous and no injuries will occur.
Before the gel (bleaching agent) is applied to your teeth, we cover the gums with a special rubber-like material. This prevents damage to the gums, while the colour pigments remove discolouration. At the same time, we put on protective goggles so that your eyes are also protected. This is especially necessary during the complete light-activated procedure.
Does bleaching cause pain?
If a bleaching is applied correctly, the entire procedure is gentle on the teeth and completely painless. It is rare that patients complain of a slight pulling in the tooth area. This is the case for example with very sensitive teeth. The slight pulling discomfort is often also experienced as a short, lightning pain.
If you have sensitive teeth and are concerned about possible pain, please let us know. We will find an appropriate solution for this. In this case there may be the possibility of administering a painkiller after the bleaching.
What should be considered before bleaching?
Before we start with the first treatment, a general examination is necessary. Among other things, we look for leaking root fillings or bad fillings that could lead to complications.
In addition, professional teeth cleaning is carried out before teeth whitening. In this way we ensure that your teeth and especially the spaces between your teeth are completely clean.
What should be considered after bleaching?
Once you have successfully completed a bleaching session, please refrain from eating any food that may discolour your teeth within the next 48 hours. These include coffee, tea or coloured fruit juices. Also the consumption of cigarettes or other nicotine-containing stimulants such as cigars and e-cigarettes should be taboo. Otherwise you run the risk of ruining positive results.
