The first impression always counts, and the first thing we notice at someone is their smile, therefore their teeth. Teeth whitening in Romania is one of the most popular dental cosmetic treatments abroad among most dental patients and it can be undertaken at a fraction of the cost of similar treatments in Western European countries.
What does teeth whitening in Romania consist of?
Teeth whitening in Romania is a dental procedure which implies the use of whitening products with the aim of generating brighter looking teeth. These products contain tooth bleaches which break stains in smaller particles, creating a less concentrated color and whiter teeth.
Teeth whitening in Romania can be achieved using whitening toothpastes, at-home bleaching or in-office bleaching. The in-office bleaching is performed at a dentist’s office and generally necessitates only one visit to the dentist abroad. It consists of applying special gels or using light energy to quicken the whitening process.
Costs of teeth whitening in Romania
Performed in clinics with state-of-the-art medical technologies and services, teeth whitening procedures in Romania are much less expensive than similar treatments undertaken in other more developed Western European countries. While a teeth whitening in Romania costs as an average around EUR 290, in a country like the U.K. for example, such a treatment could cost up to EUR 1,500, allowing patients interested in dentistry abroad to save a lot of their hard earned money.
Reasons for teeth discoloring
As the years go by, teeth can darken in color because of a number of reasons:
• Diet: Coffee, red wine and tea can stain the teeth. These drinks contain color pigments called chromogens which affect the enamel (the white, exterior part of the teeth);
• Tobacco: It contains two chemicals, tar and nicotine, which stain the teeth. Tar has a natural darker color and nicotine does not have any color until it mixes with oxygen. Afterwards, it transforms into a yellowish substance which stains the surface of the teeth;
• Ageing: Under the teeth enamel, there is a softer component named dentin which has a yellowish color. With ageing, the surface enamel becomes thinner because of brushing and more of the dentin color comes out;
• Injury: If you suffered a trauma at the mouth, your tooth can alter its color as it reacts to it by producing more dentin;
• Medications: Teeth can darken because of different antihistamines, antipsychotics and high blood pressure drugs. Children who are prescribed certain antibiotics in their early stages of lives are more predisposed to teeth discoloration later in their lives. Chemotherapy and neck and head radiation can also have a teeth darkening impact.
