Teeth Whitening ( Bleaching ) in Istanbul

Obvious discoloration of teeth can be a physical handicap that impacts on a person’s self-image, self confidence, physical attractiveness. A person due to cosmetic dental problems may profoundly be affected in their self-esteem, interactions, environmental adaptations, personal relationships, job opportunities, and other fundamental aspects thus affecting their quality of life.

The overwhelming evidence indicates that tooth bleaching is effective if supervised by a professional dentist.

The professional teeth whitening process starts with a consultation, since bleaching treatments are affected by a number of factors including the actual cause of tooth discoloration.

Tooth whitening is not the best choice for you if:

• You have decayed teeth in your mouth. Those decayed teeth need to be treated prior to whitening procedures
• You have gingivitis or periodontitis- gum diseases (again, treat them first!)
• Your teeth have abrasions, attritions or erosions. (Defects of teeth enamel as a result of aggressive brushing, teeth grinding or improper diet with excessive use of citrus fruits or carbonate drinks)
• You are pregnant.

But other than that, one of the most critical aspects of an aesthetically pleasing smile is tooth color. And if you do not fall into the contraindications area, bleaching might be a very satisfying option for you.

How long does the procedure take ?

There are different types of teeth whitening procedures. In-office and home bleaching.

The protocol include one session of treatment with three applications of 15 minutes of whitening gel (Totally 60 minutes, cleaning included).

The area where teeth and gums are meeting is covered with a gel and then hardened it with a high-powered light. This is called a gingival barrier, and it protects your gums from bleaching chemicals during the whitening process.

The actual whitening process involves the dentist applying a gel made of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide penetrates the porous outer layer of your teeth and breaks apart stain compounds using a chemical reaction called oxidation.

The gels are in full contact with the tooth surface and then removed with moistened cotton pellets between each application. At the end of the third application, the gels are removed, all the excess is rinsed with copious water, and finally, the gingival barrier is removed.

Home Bleaching
Your dentist makes a cast and prepares transparent “Essix” trays for you to use at home.

Here usually Carbamide peroxide is preferred.

Treatment protocol is between 4-6 hours a day for 2 weeks. You will also be provided with a desensitizing agent to put on each day after your bleaching session.

What is Dental Botox?

Dental Botox is for more than just aesthetics. Treatments can also help alleviate pain and help correct disorders.
Botox is primarily known as a cosmetic treatment that removes the appearance of wrinkles from the face by causing the muscles to  relax and produce a smoothing effect on the skin.

However, Botox use is not limited to cosmetic applications: dental  botox can provide relief from certain maxillofacial conditions that cause pain.

Dental Botox can help many chronic ailments such as TMJ disorders, bruxism, and masseter hypertrophy. It can also help correct high lip lines.
Unlike cosmetic botox injections, dental botox helps treat a number of conditions affecting the face and mouth area.

In particular, dental botox can treat a number of muscle-generated dental disorders such as:

Masseter Hypertrophy

The condition known as Masseter Hypertrophy is characterized by the enlargement of the masseter muscles. Masseter muscles are what the mouth uses when it masticates or chews food and are some of the strongest muscles in the body by weight. While idiopathic hypertrophy is a rare occurrence that has no known causes, many experts believe it can be caused by defective/misaligned teeth, over chewing (such as gum or tobacco), TMJ disorders, congenital origins, or even stress and anxiety.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders

Temporomandibular disorders affect the jaw muscles, temporomandibular joints, and the nerves surrounding the area. Anything that hampers the harmonic function of the muscles, bones, and joints can lead to temporomandibular disorder. It often results in chronic facial pain, including migraines, jaw clicking or popping, shoulder and neck pain, and earaches.


Bruxism is the condition where a patient grinds teeth or clenches the jaws due to stress or anxiety. TMJ can also produce this symptom. Prolonged bruxism can damage the teeth through grinding, and can lead to more extensive discomfort including headaches or facial pain. Interestingly, most people with bruxism are often unaware whenever they grind their teeth and clench their jaw.

In addition

– High lip lines
– Nasolabial folds
– Radial lip lines
– The appearance of gummy smile
– Improving orthodontic prosthesis or fixing orthodontic relapses


If you clench your teeth, the masseter muscles bulge out to the side of the face. You can feel them by pressing in the middle of the cheek as you clench and release your teeth.

They feel hard like a stone and your finger gets pushed outward by clenching and palpating..

The masseter muscle is one of the 4 main chewing muscles. It clenches the teeth together. You use the masseter muscle every time you eat, or chew or clench your teeth.

Most people who have strong masseters are just born with sturdy muscles. This is more common in Koreans, Chinese and South East Asians. However, anyone one can be born with large and strong masseter muscles.

Like any other muscle, the more the masseter is worked out the stronger it becomes. Masseter muscles can become over-developed from grinding teeth. The medical name for grinding or clenching teeth is Bruxism. A lot of teeth grinding happens during sleep, subconsciously. This can wear the teeth down and give headaches and jaw pain.

Masseter muscles become bigger in anyone who chews a lot. Chewing gum a lot, for example, will develop the masseter muscles.

Night grinding, also called bruxism, is a condition in which a person grinds or clenches their teeth. Bruxism is one of the most common sleep disorders, with an average 20% of the American adult population suffering from the condition. Most people have a mild form of night grinding at some point in their lives.

If left untreated, bruxism can lead to:

Neck pain
Dental damage (wearing of the bite surfaces of the teeth)
Jaw disorders (pain and limited movement)
Significant joint pain or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)

Without treatment, teeth grinding can lead to problems with your teeth, jaw muscles and jaw joints. If you wake up with headaches or have jaw soreness, see a healthcare provider.

If left untreated, bruxism can lead to:

Neck pain
Dental damage (wearing of the bite surfaces of the teeth)
Jaw disorders (pain and limited movement)
Significant joint pain or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)

Endodontics ;

Healthy teeth closely affect a person’s quality of life and their current state of general health, especially the digestive system.

The vascular-nerve and living tissue in the inner part of the tooth creates a painful problem. Root canal treatment, where the living tissue is being removed, disinfected and then filled with a biocompatible material, is a valid and satisfactory treatment method for decayed and fractured teeth.

Back in the days, teeth were extracted right away, now there are options.


When is a root canal treatment required ?

If there is a pulp infection, a lesion at the apical region (visible by radiography, mostly discovered by routine controls) or spontaneous dwelling pain, root canal treatment might be the best solution to preserve the tooth. According to studies, success rate of are above 90%.


How is a root canal treatment performed?

The living vascular nerve tissue located inside of the tooth is called pulp. A panoramic or periapical radiography is taken first in order to determine the correct tooth responsible for the pain and whether there is an infection at the apical region of the root.
After deciding that a root canal treatment is required, local anesthesia is performed, the pulp is removed entirely and the canals are thoroughly irrigated with disinfecting solutions.


After a successful root canal treatment, depending on the remaining vital tissue, the tooth can either be restored with a filling material or with a crown.

Save your tooth before it’s too late !

Oral Dental and Maxillofacial Surgery ;

Oral, Dental and Maxillofacial Diseases and Surgery is a surgical branch of dentistry, dealing with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries and deformations related to the mouth, teeth and jaws.
Most of the time people consult a dentist because of tooth wear, tooth pain due to decay, jaw pain or edentulous areas.

The Oral, Dental and Maxillofacial Surgery branch includes following procedures:

• Extraction of impacted teeth
• Dental Implant Applications
• Surgical treatments of soft tissue
• Surgical treatments of tumours related to jaw area
• Surgical treatments of jaw and intraoral fractures
• Surgical treatments of deformations that cause aesthetic concerns
• Surgical corrections of tissues prior to dentures (oral preprosthetic surgery)

Orthodontics ;

Orthodontics is a branch addressing the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of mal-positioned teeth and jaws, and misaligned bite patterns. It may also address the modification of facial growth, known as dentofacial orthopedics.

Malocclusion, crowded or crooked teeth, infra-positioned teeth are all leading to oral health problems, not only is the chewing function affected but also oral hygiene is compromised due to regions that are difficult to reach.

Dental radiographies and clinical examination are needed to evaluate the patient fully for his need of an orthodontic treatment.

The length of treatment period is depending on the patient’s oral and dental status.


Who should consider receiving orthodontic treatment ?

The International Orthodontics Association is recommending an oral examination at 7 years of age for all children. Since crowded or crooked teeth might seriously affect the jaws, it is of high importance to take care of it in the early ages where bone growth and development is not fully complete. Otherwise after completion of bone growth, surgical treatments might be the only way for treatment. Therefore, examination at the right time might save a lot of trouble later.


What is the procedure of orthodontic treatment?

There are several options for the bracket material (metal, ceramic, transparent, lingual). With the help of tooth brackets and stainless steel wires, a certain amount of torque is given to the teeth in order to move and get them into the desired/right position. This will not happen right away of course, it takes time for the fibers holding the teeth in the bone, to accommodate and react to the given force. Not only is the material choice very crucial but also the educational degree and experience of your orthodontist.


Orthodontic treatment options for adults

There is no such thing as “I am too old for braces”. Orthodontic treatment can be received at any age. Extraction sites, being edentulous for a long period, might cause teeth to tip towards the empty space.

If there is an aesthetic concern about the braces being visible, no worries !

With brackets hidden on the lingual (back) side of your teeth, no one will know.

Another option is the Invisalign treatment, a computer-assisted orthodontic treatment technology, which is applied to correct your teeth with unique transparent trays (aligners), without using braces. The most important reason for the preference of Invisalign is that it is not noticeable that you are receiving orthodontic treatment while correcting the teeth crowding.

Periodontology ;

Periodontology is a branch examining the soft and hard tissues surrounding the teeth, investigating diseases that occur in these tissues.

Since periodontal diseases can cause tooth loss even though the affected tooth is intact, it is crucial and of utmost importance to protect the teeth’s surrounding soft and hard tissues (gums and alveolar bones) as well as maintaining overall oral health. Because once it looses its supporting tissues there will be nothing to hold the tooth in place.

How does a gum disease even occur in the first place?

Gum disease is an inflammatory disease caused by bacterial plaque accumulation on the tooth/root surfaces. The chemicals secreted by bacteria living in the plaque damage the gums and the bone under the tooth. Thus dental diseases develop.

As long as the bacterial plaque is not removed properly, it begins to harden by time exposed to saliva and minerals. Calculus is the name given to that hardened plaque accumulation.

Symptoms of affected inflamed gums are:

• Swelling
• Halitosis (bad breath)
• Gingival bleeding (spontaneous or while brushing)
• Painful gums
• Pus outflow (metallic taste)
• Recession

Treatment is crucial in order to preserve oral health. There are several treatment options such as laser therapy, surgical treatment or nonsurgical initial treatments. After clinical examination the most suitable treatment plan will be established according to your needs.
