As it has already been mentioned, besides the most popular method of teeth whitening using photopolymerization, other methods are often used, in particular:

  • Chemical teeth whitening;
  • Cold teeth whitening;
  • Complex teeth whitening.
  • Inner-canal teeth whitening

In fact, practically all professional methods of whitening teeth in dental clinics can be characterized as chemical, it is due to the fact that they mean the use of a special gel that affects not the enamel, but dentin. The main components of this substance are hydrogen and carob. The differences between the subtypes of the chemical method of teeth whitening lies only in the equipment used.

Cold whitening

The method of cold whitening belongs to the category of photo-whitening systems, so the principle of its use is to use a specialized gel in combination with cold light radiation used as a catalyst.

  2. Next, in a pre-depulpted cavity of the dental crown, a special gel is introduced. Its main component is sodium perbonate.
  3. A temporary filling is placed above the tooth for the term of treatment.
  4. After a certain period of time (appointed individually for each patient), the dentist carries out an examination and, in the case of achieving the desired result, replaces the temporary fillings on a permanent basis.

This technique of teeth whitening is used when the enamel is significantly darkened. The intradermal whitening of the tooth can achieve white color over a fairly short period of time, and the effect of the procedure persists longer compared to alternative whitening methods, since the tooth enamel is dyed from the inside of the tooth.

Types of whitening teeth

Virtually any of the methods described above, with the exception of the intradermal, can be applied with various special means, which include:

  • Tooth whitening gel;
  • toothpaste for teeth whitening;
  • teeth whitening capsules;
  • Tooth powder for whitening teeth.
  • Gel whitening of teeth.

Depending on the particular gel used, the content of peroxide in its composition may vary in the exemplary range ​​from 4 to 7.5 percent. Less commonly, the composition of gels for whitening is based on 10-15 per cents of carambet peroxide. It works identically to the first option.
