Indications for teeth whitening:

- fillings cannot be whitened that's why it's recommended to whiten dark teeth before having fillings replaced. New fillings should be done after approx. 2 weeks from the moment of teeth whitening. Thanks to whitening it's possible to have whiter fillings which match the new, more natural teeth colour, sometimes even whiter than the colour expected by the patient.
Counterindications for teeth whitening:
- mechanical or caries damages of teeth
- a great amount of fillings, crowns, bridges or veneers in front teeth area

Yes, it is safe provided that it will be carried out by a qualified medical team that will use modern whitening agents, which don't cause any damage to the dentin
Does the teeth whitening have any side-effects?
During or just after the procedure most of the patients feel that their teeth are more sensitive to thermal stimuli (coldness or warmth), but this symptom is usually temporary and should disappear within a few days after finishing the treatment. Our patients have done the fluoridation of all teeth within the standard procedure, what considerably shortens the period of hypersensitivity after the whitening treatment.
How to maintain the whitening effect?
The teeth will always remain whiter after whitening but colours included in some food and beverages can cause discolouration
- Attend check ups and professional teeth cleaning every 6 months
- care for an appropriate oral hygiene (teeth cleaning after every meal or at least 2 times a day, tooth paste with fluoride, mouth rinse e.g. Advantage ORAL B or Listerine, dental floss with fluoride
