(Chin and neck liposuction) great experience with Abud

I found flymedi while I was looking for a doctor in Istanbul to do a chin and neck liposuction. Abud from Flymedi contacted me and he was great from the beginning until even after I went back home, he took care of everything and was always available, definitely the right person for this experience! My doctor (Dr Ozge Ergun) was also great, I'm very satisfied and I can only recommend Flymedi, the best place to find your treatment!

5* service

From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

Great Service

After a long research for hair transplant, I came across Flymedi. I had several reasons to get this service from them such as getting rid of the bureaucratic process, handling accommodation issues, personal assistant, etc. I felt comfortable once it is done by Flymedi as full of customer-oriented style, I was just worried about the surgery which went well too! Thank you Flymedi team. Make sure that I will be letting people know your passion for helping patients who admit to have surgery done in Poland.

Recommended For Teeth Whitening

Dental bleaching is recommended for any individual suffering from one or more of the following: 
● Generalized teeth staining 

● Teeth discoloration caused by age 
● Tetracycline staining 
● Mild fluorosis 
● Teeth staining caused by tobacco use 

Not Recommended For Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is not recommended for patients suffering from gingivitis or patients with susceptible gums. Patients with large cavities or who need extensive dental work should first perform these procedures before opting for dental bleaching. 

Alcohol users and very heavy smokes should generally avoid the procedure since the hydrogen peroxide can hurt the tooth's enamel when combined with heavy smoking and alcohol use.

In some cases, patients who opted for different dental procedures such as bridges, veneers or crowns may have to replace them once the dental bleaching procedure is over – this is in order to ensure that all teeth have the same look and translucency.

Duration Of Operation

30 to 60 minutes

Overview

Teeth whitening, also known as dental bleachingor tooth whiteningis a very common cosmetic dentistry procedure. There is a small difference between whitening and bleaching – bleaching is used to whiten teeth beyond their natural color while whitening restores the natural color of the teeth. In 2010, more than 100 million teeth whitening procedures were performed in the USA alone, making it one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures in the world. 


Dental bleaching can be applied through different techniques: 
● Teeth whitening laser 
● Teeth whitening gel 
● Bleaching pen 
● Teeth whitening strips 

Dental bleaching uses hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to whiten or bleach the teeth. This special solution infiltrates the teeth’s enamel and breaks away any stains. 

What causes teeth stains? 
Teeth can become stained due to bacterial pigments, color drinks such as wine, tea, coffee, and coca cola. Other teeth stain causes include: 
● Genetic factors 
● Tetracycline-based antibacterial drugs 
● Enamel hypoplasia 
● Fluorosis 
● Tobacco 
● Poor oral hygiene 
● The natural aging process 
● Chlorhexidine – this substance is often used in toothpaste and mouthwash 

Preparation

Patients need to stop smoking before the teeth whitening procedure and then quit altogether

How It Is Performed

A teeth whitening procedure is a simple cosmetic dentistry treatment which can refurbish discolored teeth. The procedure is safe and straightforward, which minimal risks involved. 
The teeth whitening dentist will first apply a unique solution on the patient's gums – this is a chemical barrier that will protect the gums during the teeth whitening procedure. 
The teeth whitening dentist will then proceed to apply the whitening solution on to the teeth – this is a bleach-based solution, specifically designed for dental work and dental restoration. 

Once the solution is applied, the teeth whitening dentist will use a combination of light and heat to activate it, effectively removing any stains from the teeth’s enamel. Once this part of the procedure is finished, the area is cleaned and repeated two more times. When the desired result is achieved, the teeth whitening dentist will remove the barrier applied on the gums and the patient may return home. 

Teeth that previously underwent root canal treatment may have the teeth whitening solution injected deep into the roots for a better result. 

Recovery

The teeth whitening procedure does not require any recovery period. Patients may fly, drive, and resume normal activities immediately.y.

Risks

Teeth whitening complications can include one or more of the following: 

● Chemical burns from the whitening solution 
● Increased teeth sensitivity to hot or cold stimuli 
● Overbleaching 
● Pain 
● Bleachorexia – the patient, can become obsessed with whitening 

Complications following a teeth whitening procedure are rare and your teeth whitening dentist will provide you with instructions to help you avoid any complications after the treatment

Side Effects

Teeth whitening side effects can include one or more of the following: 

● Tooth sensitivity 
● Pain 

Success Rates

Teeth whitening reviews set the average dental bleaching success rate at around 74%.

Before And After

Most individuals report feeling more confident and more comfortable in social settings after the procedure is done. It’s important to note that teeth whitening or dental bleaching does not offer permanent results. Patients will be required to avoid certain drinks or types of food after the treatment in order to maintain the results. Some individuals generally opt for another teeth whitening procedure in around ten to twelve months after the first one.

Patients who consume plenty of staining foods such as sodas or coffee may require another procedure in just a couple of months. One of the biggest factors when it comes to staining teeth is smoking, as the tar found in cigarettes will stick to the tooth's enamel. It is this tar that darkens the teeth – brushing will not remove it either. As such, patients will have to alter their lifestyles in order to maintain their new smile for longer periods of time.

Faq

Is dental bleaching painful? 
Not – patients don't feel a thing. 

Is teeth whitening safe? 
Teeth whitening does not affect the health of the patient’s teeth in any way. The procedure itself is very popular among patients as well as dentists.

Can dental bleaching damage fillings, crowns or bridges? 
No, but they may need replacing for a more consistent look.

Do teeth whitening strips work?

Teeth whitening strips may work to some degree – it all depends on the type of staining the tooth has and its depth. That being said, teeth whitening strips do not offer the same results as a procedure performed by a professional dentist.

Extra Content

Laser Teeth Whitening 

Laser Teeth Whitening, also known as light accelerated bleaching uses different types of light energy such as plasma arc, LED or halogen in order to accelerate the bleaching process. While the addition of different energy sources makes the procedure faster, it does not improve the overall results by a great deal.

Naoparticle Catalysts combined with hydrogen peroxide

 

While it is a relatively new technique, titanium oxide-based catalysts can be used with a solution with lower levels of hydrogen peroxide. This technique is mostly applied for patients with very sensitive teeth since it has the advantage of lowering overall side effects while maintaining great overall results.

 

Internal Bleaching

 

Teeth which had their nerves removed through a root canal treatment tend to get darker and darker as time passes. Internal bleaching can be applied to these teeth in order to maintain them the same color or shade as the patient's other teeth. This type of teeth whitening is performed by introducing the bleaching solution inside the teeth itself and regularly replacing it until the perfect color is achieved.
