Many patients, after undergoing an orthodontic therapy, which has set their teeth into an ideal position, have a desire to render the color of their teeth as light and ideal as possible.
Laser tooth whitening is an aesthetic procedure used in dental medicine to lighten the shade of the teeth in order to make them look whiter, younger, healthier and more beautiful.
Many are the factors that affect the color of the teeth. Inner factors can be the proportion of the inner, more yellow dental tissue- dentin, and the outer, lighter dental tissue- enamel and discolorations due to the assumption of medicines. These factors cannot be influenced and they determine the basic tooth color.
Whitening affects the tooth discoloration caused by outer factors such as smoking and assuming coloured food or liquids or tooth discoloration caused by tooth devitalization.
There are different methods of tooth whitening and at a Marelić orthodontic clinic we recommend professional tooth whitening under medical supervision since, unlike home tooth whitening products, it is proven to be safe.
Before the tooth whitening procedure, each patient is given a parodontal status check, all soft (plaque) and hardened (tartar) dental plaque is removed and all fillings are checked.
Tooth whitening at Marelić orthodontic clinic is done using a laser. Laser tooth whitening is completely painless and safe and doesn’t cause tooth enamel damage.
After the tooth whitening procedure patients are specifically instructed to avoid spicy and coloured food and liquids and to quit smoking for a certain period of time and are given detailed instructions on a correct oral hygiene in order to render the results of the whitening procedure more durable.
Hello! I'm Martina Kauzlarić, I came to Doctor Marelić for the first time in June 2011 with a disastrous bite. (And by the way: before that I wore mobile braces for 9 years!!! After the termination of the therapy my teeth are completely rearranged) After attaching the braces, a year later, my teeth looked better than ever!!! And they still do today (in 2015). Greetings and recommendations,
We came by recommendation in Dr. Marelić’s practice. The recommendation proved to be excellent. One daughter had her teeth straightened in a year and we were super happy with the service and results. Now we are in therapy with the younger daughter, and it is enough of a reference. When we solve the children we’ll go further...
My experience with Marelić orthodontic clinic is very positive. The whole treatment, from attaching the braces up to the removal, lasted 13 months, and the result is outstanding, I can finally laugh relaxed, without covering the teeth with my hand. The whole team is very relaxed and positive, yet thorough and devoted to their work.
