Beautiful white teeth are popular and the offer to get them is great. Whitening teeth with bleaching treatments can be done in many cases, but certainly not always. Unsafe bleaching processes can cause damage to your mouth, teeth and gums.
Bleaching materials such as toothpastes that you can buy at drugstores and beauty salons, for example, contain less than 1 percent hydrogen peroxide. It’s not for nothing. These materials are relatively safe but do not have a long-lasting effect. Bleaching materials with a percentage of hydrogen peroxide of 1 to 6 are not allowed in Europe without professional guidance. Summit uses a bleaching agent that contains up to 6 percent hydrogen peroxide.

Treatments, 2 methods to whiten your teeth
Method 1 with gel and light
You come to the clinic for 1 treatment that takes about 1 hour. The starting point is that your teeth are well maintained. We use a gel with a higher water peroxide content and we smear it on your teeth. We use a lamp to increase the effectiveness. This method is effective but not as good as the following method.
Method 2 with bleaching agents and a bit
If your teeth are well maintained then two appointments are sufficient for this bleaching treatment. At the first visit, we speak to your needs, look at your teeth and discuss the options. Sometimes additional treatments are needed to get the desired results. We measure a bit that is custom made just for you. This is how you can apply bleaches very precisely. At the second visit, you will receive the bit with bleaching materials. In addition, we give you instructions on how to carefully whiten your teeth with your denture and bleaching materials. For 1 to 2 weeks, you will wear the bit with bleaching materials every night. Because the teeth whitening is gradual, you are in control of how white your teeth will be, as white as possible or a slightly lighter shade of white. This method is safe and has a long-lasting effect.
