What is teeth whitening and how does it work?
Teeth whitening, also called teeth whitening or bleaching, is a process in which the teeth are whitened to remove discolouration and stains and give you a bright white smile. Bleaching products usually contain hydrogen peroxide or a similar bleaching agent that penetrates the tooth enamel and breaks down the colour pigments. However, not our tooth-friendly bleaching method at ALPINE WHITE, but more on that below.
There are different bleaching methods, such as in-office bleaching, home bleaching and power bleaching, all of which have their advantages and disadvantages.
Power bleaching is a professional method of teeth whitening performed in the dental practice. The advantage of this procedure is its speed and efficiency. Within one session of about one hour, your teeth can become several shades lighter.
During power bleaching, the gums and surrounding oral mucosa are first carefully covered to protect them from the bleaching agent. Then a highly concentrated bleaching gel is applied to the surface of the teeth. Unlike other procedures that require patients to leave the gel on their teeth for several hours or even overnight, power bleaching uses a light emitter or laser to activate the bleaching gel. This process allows the bleaching agent to penetrate deeper into the enamel, removing more severe discolouration.
It is important to note that although power bleaching is fast and effective, it may not be suitable for everyone. For those with sensitive gums, exposed necks of teeth or enamel defects, this procedure could cause discomfort.
At ALPINE WHITE, we are dedicated to helping you regain your bright smile without pain. Our specially developed whitening method offers a safe and effective solution for removing tooth discolouration. We use a painless procedure without the use of hydrogen peroxide. For this, we use the ingredient phthalimidoperoxycaproicacid (PAP).
PAP is an innovative substance used in tooth whitening and has established itself as a gentle and effective alternative to conventional hydrogen peroxide. PAP has attracted attention in dentistry because of its special properties and advantages.
Among the advantages of PAP is that it is safe and mild. While hydrogen peroxide, traditionally used in teeth whitening, can often cause hypersensitivity and gum irritation, PAP offers a much gentler treatment. It reduces the risk of side effects and is therefore a preferred choice for those with sensitive teeth or gums.
PAP is a very effective bleaching agent that penetrates deep into the enamel to remove stains and whiten teeth. Despite its strong whitening effect, PAP is gentle on tooth structure and does not alter the structure of the tooth. This means that it can whiten the teeth without attacking or damaging the enamel.
Another great advantage of PAP is that it not only removes discolouration, but also has antibacterial properties. This means that when it whitens teeth, it also helps to reduce harmful bacteria, which is beneficial for overall good dental health.
