About the procedure
Dental bleaching is a dental procedure that aims to lighten and whiten the teeth, eliminating stains and discolorations. It is a popular cosmetic treatment that can significantly improve the appearance of the smile.
Dental bleaching is performed by applying chemical products, usually based on hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which act on the color molecules present in the teeth. These chemical products release oxygen, which penetrates the dental enamel and breaks down the pigment molecules, removing stains and brightening the tooth color.
It is essential to emphasize that dental bleaching is not suitable for everyone. Some individuals may not be candidates due to certain dental or oral health conditions. Additionally, dental bleaching can have temporary effects, and periodic maintenance may be required to preserve the results. Therefore, it is advisable to consult a dentist before starting any dental bleaching treatment.

It had been a while since I had taken care of my dental health, and it's an incredible feeling to have a healthy mouth again.
I suffered a serious accident, and the person who helped me remedy my situation was Ana María Zuluaga, an excellent dentist. She is a person who provides quality care and is compassionate.
Frequently asked questions
How do you determine the price of the smile design and dental treatments?
The price of smile design and dental treatments is determined on an individual basis since each patient has unique needs and requirements. During the pre-treatment study and clinical evaluation, the case will be analyzed, and a personalized treatment plan will be provided, allowing us to determine the price based on the procedures required.
The smile design treatments are painful?
Most smile design treatments are performed with local anesthesia, which minimizes any discomfort or pain during the procedure. After the treatment, you may experience some temporary sensitivity or mild discomfort, but it typically subsides quickly.
How long do the results of the smile design last?
The duration of the results can vary depending on the specific treatment and post-treatment care. For example, dental whitening can last for several months or years with good oral hygiene habits and avoiding foods and beverages that stain the teeth. On the other hand, dental veneers or crowns usually have a longer lifespan but may eventually require replacement due to normal wear and tear.
What are the additional benefits of a smile design beyond dental aesthetics?
In addition to improving the aesthetic appearance, a smile design can have functional and health benefits. Some of these benefits include improved dental alignment, better bite and occlusion, correction of malocclusion issues, prevention of excessive dental wear, and increased self-confidence and emotional well-being.
