You can get rid of these stains with the methods you can use at home or the methods to be applied in the office, with the advice of an expertise doctor.
What Causes Yellow Teeth?
There are many causes of yellow teeth. These reasons:

What is Tooth Staining?
Depending on the reasons mentioned above, in the course of time, stains on the tooth enamel and yellowing of the teeth occur due to these spots. The cause of yellow teeth may be due to intrinsic staining or extrinsic staining. Antalya teeth whitening will offer you the most up-to-date treatment for the prevention of these tooth stains.
What is Intrinsic Stains?
The staining of the tooth as a result of deterioration in its structure due to various factors during its development is called intrinsic staining. E.g; The use of antibiotics at a young age causes deterioration of the intrinsic structure of the tooth during development and the formation of intrinsic stains in the long term.
What is Extrinsic Stains?
The staining that occurs on the enamel, which is the outer layer of the tooth, due to time and nutrition is called extrinsic staining. E.g; Yellowing of the teeth due to excessive use of tobacco or excessive use of acidic beverages causes extrinsic tooth stains.
What are the Elements to Consider While Whitening Teeth?
Thanks to the experience we have gained during the teeth whitening applications we have done as the Antalya Dental Place family, the points to be considered about the Antalya teeth whitening application are;
- First of all, you should see a specialist doctor to determine your dentition and the cause of your tooth staining.
- After your dentist decides to apply the teeth whitening process in the clinic or at home, you should start the treatment.
- Your cavities, if any, should be treated before starting teeth whitening. Because untreated dental caries cause damage to the root of the tooth by the agents entering between these teeth.
- You should work carefully, especially in home teeth whitening applications. The whitening agent should not come into contact with the gums. If it comes into contact with the gums, the person may face oral and gingiva injuries.
Who Can Teeth Whiten?
As Alanya Dental Place family, our first priority is the safety and satisfaction of our patients. We have a lot of experience in teeth whitening in Antalya with our attending physician staff and patient satisfaction-based working principle. Thanks to these experiences, our most important advice to our valued patients is to apply teeth whitening with the advice of our attending physician. Because this is a job that requires professionalism. Although it may seem very simple to obtain teeth whitening kits and apply them at home today, there are many risks in teeth whitening kits.
Tooth whitening at home can cause permanent damage to the tooth enamel and gingiva when the wrong methods are used. In addition, there are beauty centers that perform tooth cleaning and teeth whitening operations without the presence of specialist dentists or health personnel. However, teeth whitening is a form of treatment and it is appropriate to do it under the control or recommendation of specialist physicians. In addition, we recommend that you whiten your teeth at oral and dental health centers or with the help of specialist physicians in order to avoid some difficult situations such as being exposed to harmful microorganisms and being trouble in legally. Other than that, some situations where we do not recommend teeth whitening are as follows;
- In cases where oral care is not good,
- When there are large dental caries or damage to the teeth,
- In cases of diseases related to the gingivas,
- In patients with bruxism problems,
- We do not recommend teeth whitening for patients using substances such as vigarettes, tobacco, etc.
How Long Teeth Whitening Last?
In Antalya teeth whitening applications, we primarily control the oral and dental health of the patient and create our treatment plan. First of all, if there are caries and deficiencies in our patient’s teeth, we treat these caries and deficiencies in the patient’s teeth and make the whitening application possible.
Antalya teeth whitening application starts after our dentists prepare the teeth protector by taking the teeth dimensions of the person with the determined treatment plan. Depending on the recommendation of the medical doctor, this operation is performed by applying the gel with tooth-cleaning agents to the teeth for 2 to 4 weeks at home or in the clinic.

Can Teeth Whitening Kit and Teeth Whitening In Beauty Salons Be Used?
As Antalya Dental Place, although we talk about this subject in our article, we will answer this question under a separate heading for you. Because this question is one of the most asked questions to us. Antalya teeth whitening application should only be done by a registered dentist. It is illegal to whiten teeth performed by non-experts in places such as beauty salons. In addition, home-type teeth whitening kits are easy to use, but carry many risks for your teeth.
What Are the Risks of Teeth Whitening Kits?
Although teeth whitening kits are easily available in the market, some kits may not contain enough whitening products when these products are not recommended under the supervision of a doctor, and these kits do not have any whitening effect on your teeth. In addition, your teeth dimensions are taken by a specialist dentist for Antalya teeth whitening application and a personalized mouthpiece is produced. Since the mouthpieces in household kits are not personalized, they may not fit your teeth. In this case, the whitening agent comes into contact with your gingivas or inside the mouth, and this undesirable situation may cause problems such as sensitivity and swelling in your mouth.
