The best teeth whitening in Granada

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments among patients, as it serves to lighten the color of the teeth and give them a more beautiful appearance and shade.
It can be used to achieve different levels of teeth whitening . The amount needed depends on the amount of discoloration present on your teeth. Typically, people looking for a subtle change use at-home whitening products such as toothpastes and mouthwashes; however, if you want more dramatic results, you may need to visit a trained dentist for professional teeth whitening.

Although the results are immediate, the process itself takes time. Most dentists recommend waiting two weeks before starting to use a new toothpaste or eating foods that stain teeth (such as coffee). The reason is that these products can speed up the discoloration process and make it difficult for the dentist to determine what shade your teeth should be after treatment.

Types of tooth whitening

There are several types of teeth whitening, since it depends on the type of teeth, the area where it is performed or the tools used.

  • Depending on the type of tooth.

Depending on the type of teeth, we must differentiate between vital and non-vital teeth, depending on where the stain is located. If it is on the outside, we will proceed to whiten vital teeth, while if it is on the inside, we will be referring to whitening of non-vital teeth.


    • Whitening of vital teeth: This is the most common process carried out by dentists. To perform it, the gel will be applied directly on the tooth. This treatment can be performed at home, although it will be much more effective to carry it out in a dental clinic, since the results will be much more enriching. It usually lasts between half an hour or an hour and the number of sessions needed will depend on the amount of stains or the level of whitening that the patient requires.
    • Whitening of non-vital teeth: This whitening is carried out from the inside of the teeth. When the stains come from the internal part, the previous one will have no effect, so it will be necessary to resort to this solution. The procedure consists of introducing a whitener inside the tooth and leaving it inside for a few days. To achieve the desired shade, it will be necessary to change the whitener until the required effect is achieved.
  • Depending on the tool used. 

When whitening is performed on vital teeth, it is possible to differentiate according to the light technique used. Two different types can be distinguished:

    • LED bleaching: Thanks to this technique, we will activate the molecules of the gel through the use of a blue LED light. To achieve the expected results, between 3 or 4 sessions are needed.
    • Laser whitening : The laser light will penetrate the teeth, gradually increasing their whitening. In spite of this, its duration is shorter than with the use of LED lights, besides it can cause damage to the nerves. Nowadays, this treatment has been replaced by LED whitening.
