Healthy, beautiful teeth are not just a decisive part of our appearance but also of our personality. An aesthetic dental appearance is synonymous for success, vigour and attractiveness.
An immaculate white smile stands for health, beauty and success. Studies have shown that white teeth are important for professional and private success.

Range of Services
We offer different methods for tooth whitening. For all treatments we take care to achieve the best results, using the most modern techniques and materials, without damaging the tooth substance.
The bleaching gel is directly applied to the teeth to be whitened by the treating staff and it remains there according to the usage instructions under the supervision of the dentist. Then the whitening gel is thoroughly removed, and the bleaching result can be immediately checked. The use of laser further intensifies the whitening effect.
For this method, we manufacture an individual plastic splint. To do this we make an impression and create a cast. The splint is filled with bleaching gel by the patient according to the instructions of the dentist and for use at home. During weekly check-ups the dentist examines the whitening result.
Root-treated teeth are bleached with peroxide inlays within the tooth. The bleaching gel is left on the tooth for several days. For an optimal result, the treatment should be repeated several times.
The results vary by individual. In an extensive appraisal we discuss which method is best suited for you and provide extensive counselling.
Bleaching is a method to whiten discoloured teeth for aesthetic reasons. In the course of time, stains from food or stimulants accumulate in the crystal structure of the enamel and darken the teeth. The individual tooth colour also darkens slightly with age.
The bleach used most often is based on hydrogen peroxide. When applied to the teeth the chemical compounds decompose and release oxygen, which destroys the stains through a process of oxidation and thus whitens the teeth.
The best way to proceed with tooth whitening is to start with an extensive appraisal. Before the whitening it is necessary to conduct a professional dental hygiene treatment to completely remove all deposits and superficial discolourations from the surface of the teeth. The dentition has to be free of caries and must not display any symptoms of tooth socket diseases (gum bleeding, periodontal pockets).
Fillings, inlays, crown and bridges are not altered nor affected by whitening agents. Pregnant and breast-feeding women and minors should abstain from tooth whitening, however.
The result depends on the individual patient. The long-term success after a whitening treatment depends on oral hygiene at home as well as eating habits.
To retain the bleaching result for a longer period of time, you should:
- brush your teeth regularly and use floss
- regularly have your teeth cleaned professionally
- limit the consumption of substances that discolour the teeth
After the whitening an oversensitivity and gum irritations may arise for a short period of time. In order to strengthen the enamel, a fluoride calcium gel is applied at the end of the treatment.
