The Whitening with Dental Splints is a procedure, whereby whitening gel is laid on the dental splints, and then the latter are fixed onto the teeth and are carried at different times, depending on the concentration and type of the preparation. With the affixing of the splints, one must pay attention that the whitening preparation does not come out of the splint, since this may cause injury and irritation of the crowns.
Sensitivity of the teeth occurs in many cases with the Patients of ‘Mateevi MD’ Clinics. Our specialists’ advice in such cases is that you interrupt the procedure for some two or three days, or use special preparations, which reduce the sensitivity and recover the mineral balance in the enamel.
The whitening procedure with dental splints lasts about two to three weeks, and another two – for stabilisation of the colour to be achieved. The Dentists of Clinics ‘Mateevi MD’ strongly recommend THAT YOU do not undertake any whitening in domestic conditions without prior consultancy, because this is potentially dangerous for the health of the teeth and crowns. If you wish to undertake whitening on your own, prints should be taken from your teeth, which are used to make the dental splints in our Laboratory. The prints are soft in such case, and fit exactly to the tooth surface without causing irritation.
While having the dental splints, you should not take drinks and/or food, in spite of the splints’ being convenient and not obstructing speech. The duration of the effect of this procedure may last for several years; however, it depends very much on the care you take of your teeth.
