Teeth Whitening

Have beautiful white teeth once more

A lot of people view their teeth as an essential part of their appearance. This is also one of the reasons why people want to go through life with beautiful teeth. Teeth are confronted on a daily basis with our personal habits (eating, drinking, and smoking), where as a result of these teeth can over time slowly become stained and develop a lackluster color.

The discoloration of teeth can cause embarrassment, this is one of the reasons that more and more people are opting for teeth whitening. Lassus Tandartsen, with two practices in Amsterdam, has the in-house expertise to quickly and effectively whiten your teeth in a sustainable manner.

Prior to the teeth whitening treatment, your teeth will be extensively cleaned to ensure the best results possible. The treatment begins with the application of bleaching gel. After the gel has been applied to your teeth, we use a plasma lamp to start the bleaching process. The plasma lamp ensures that the bleaching gel is activated and delivers the optimal results.

The bleaching gel contains a maximum of 6% hydrogen peroxide and the plasma lamp does not radiate heat or UV light.  Teeth bleaching with a blue cold light and bleach gel is therefore safe for the gums and tooth enamel and no part of the structure of the teeth will be changed. The bleaching takes places on the tooth enamel layer. The bleaching gel doesn’t open the pores of the enamel, and the dentin (the hard bony material beneath the enamel) remains untouched. After two to four consecutive treatment sessions of 15 minutes, you’ll have whiter teeth without feeling anything at all.

After The Treatment

Following the treatment, we advise our clients to temporarily avoid the consumption of any food or drink that contains coloring. This is to prevent any negative impact on the results of the teeth whitening. The final results of the treatment is usually clearly visible after approximately two weeks.

Teeth Whitening At Home

Home teeth whitening is also possible with Lassus Tandartsen. In order to this, we’ll make two appointments with you. During the first appointment, imprints will be made of your mouth, after which a dental technician will create special bleaching trays for the upper and lower jaws. These will be available for you to collect from the practice after a week. A special syringe is used to apply bleaching gel to the trays for four to ten nights. At our practices in the Keizersgracht or the Lassusstraat, you’ll receive detailed instructions for teeth bleaching at home. Doing so at home is an effective and safe way to whiten your teeth.

FAQ

One of the most common questions we receive is if teeth whitening is painful. It’s possible that during the treatment that your teeth will be more sensitive than normal. It’s also possible that for several hours after the treatment that your teeth will be sensitive to hot and cold substances.

  • This bleaching method is not suitable for children, pregnant and breastfeeding women
  • If you’re a radiology patient

The bleaching of teeth only works on natural teeth so not artificial, dental work. The original color of fillings, crowns, and faces don’t change as a result of the treatment.

We advise you to eat prior to the appointment as after the treatment you won’t be able to eat for a couple of hours.

It’s understandable that after treatment you should watch carefully what you consume. In the first two to three hours do not eat or drink (apart from water without bubbles and milk) and don’t smoke. For the rest of the day don’t consume anything that contains coloring products (red wine, cola, coffee, and tea) don’t smoke.

In order to maintain the whiteness of your teeth after bleaching it’s important to pay attention to your consumption habits. If for example you’re a regular smoker and drink lots of coffee, then your teeth will quickly become discolored again, which will lead to you having to repeat the treatment a lot sooner.

As the treatment isn’t damaging to your teeth, it’s possible to undergo it again. In order to maintain the optimal results, we advise you, dependent on your consumption habits and how you look after your teeth, to regularly repeat the treatment.
