Bleach your teeth in Amsterdam for sparkling white teeth within two hours. Are you unhappy with the colour of your teeth? Bleaching treatment is a safe, quick, and highly effective way to give your teeth a radiant white colour. You have two options for teeth bleaching in Amsterdam: you can have it done at a dental practice, or you can opt for home treatment under the guidance of a dentist.
To bleach your teeth in Amsterdam, opt for:
‘I felt my teeth were too yellow and I opted for home bleaching in consultation with the dentist. After about 8 nights, my teeth were the right colour.’
The dentist does this using a spatula by means of which the bleaching agent is placed directly on your teeth.
Dit doet de tandarts met een bleeklepel waarmee het bleekmiddel direct op uw gebit wordt aangebracht.
If you have a discoloured or ‘dead’ tooth or molar caused by a fall, for example, the dentist bleaches this tooth by placing the bleaching agent inside the root canal. Crowns, bridges, and fillings retain their original colour after a bleaching treatment. Unfortunately, no bleaching method has an effect on making dentures whiter.
If you opt to have your teeth bleached by professionals at a dental practice, treatment takes about 2 hours. Teeth bleaching is carried out as follows:
In order to bleach your teeth at home yourself, a number of appointments at the dentist are required. The dentist will take an imprint of your teeth during the first consultation. That way, the dental technician can easily make mouth guards for your upper or lower jaw. The process for this bleaching method is as follows:
‘I had my teeth bleached at the practice last summer. The dentist gave a clear explanation of the process and I had sparkling white teeth again after 2 hours.’
Ageing and your consumption habits may damage the enamel of your teeth. Smoking and consuming food and drink that contains colouring agents, such as coffee, cause plaque and deposits on your teeth. Bleaching your teeth gives them a sparkling white colour again. Bear in mind that the cause of discolouration continues to exist if you maintain the same consumption habits.
The result of your bleaching treatment lasts for approximately two years. As it happens, your teeth will gradually discolour again because of colouring agents in drinks and foods, among others. How quickly this happens varies from one person to another. You can delay the discolouration process by following these tips:
The cost of bleaching your teeth depends on the dental practice and the bleaching method used. If you have your teeth bleached in a dental practice, the cost will be approximately € 380 excluding VAT. For home bleaching, the cost is approximately € 150 per jaw and € 10 excl. VAT per ampoule.
The cost depends on the technician or dental laboratory charges and may therefore vary. As it happens, your costs could be higher or lower depending on technician charges. We recommend scheduling a consultation to discuss the options and to get an idea of the costs. You will then receive a customised treatment plan with a cost estimate.
In most cases, the cost of bleaching treatment is not covered by basic health insurance. If you have supplementary dental insurance, your insurance provider may reimburse the costs after all. Ask your insurance provider what applies to you.
You can have your teeth bleached for various reasons. The primary reason is to make your teeth a few shades lighter. You may also have a single tooth that is darker in colour due to an infection, for example. The dentist can bleach this tooth.
No, your teeth will not discolour more quickly after you have had them bleached. During the treatment, the dentist removes discolouration that has developed externally on your teeth over the years. After the treatment, you go home with clean, fresh teeth.
No, we advise against eating or drinking for the first three hours after bleaching. It is advisable to avoid consuming anything that contains many colouring agents in the first 24 hours, such as coffee, tea, red wine, cola, red cabbage, and tomato ketchup.
