The costs for the teeth cleaning are taken over by some health insurance companies in particular by the private health insurance companies. You will receive an invoice to GOZ.
- Basically, we recommend to perform a tooth cleaning before every bleaching to remove the soft as well as hard deposits (tartar).
- Teeth whitening is harmless to tooth enamel. The bleaching gel is only applied from the outside to the teeth. Irradiation by means of a lamp activates the oxygen contained in the bleaching gel. Here, the unstable H 2 O 2 decomposes in water and reactive oxygen, which splits and destroys dyes. This leads to a visible whitening of the teeth.
- Please note that fillings and ceramic restorations (eg crowns) can not be brightened in the visible range. If the crowns are in the rear, invisible area, a brightening of the front teeth is possible.
