Bleaching – Lightening of teeth

Beautiful white teeth with bleaching (also lightening of teeth or whitening) in our dental practice Dr. Paulsen in Bad Honnef near Bonn

Do you like to drink coffee, tea, red wine or do you smoke? Do you like to eat carrots or red beets? In many cases, discoloration of teeth (yellow teeth) can be ascribed to lifestyle habits, but genetic disposition, medications or teeth with a dead nerve can also be the cause of a yellow-grayish veil over the teeth.

If you have the desire to remove tooth discoloration, the sophisticated bleaching or whitening procedure provides the opportunity to brighten your teeth in a gentle and quick manner. Beautiful, white teeth can become a reality for everyone.

What must be considered prior to bleaching:

  • If you are planning to have your teeth bleached, a professional teeth cleaning procedure must be performed ahead of time, so that the bleaching agents can have an optimal effect.

  • Your teeth should undergo a thorough examination and if necessary, areas of decay or leaky fillings or deep gingival sulci should be treated.

  • Very important: existing dental prostheses such as crowns, veneers, fillings etc. cannot be lightened. Therefore, you should have bleaching performed PRIOR to getting dental prostheses (such as crown, bridge, prosthesis, veneers or implants).

Bleaching in our dental practice

At our dental practice in Bad Honnef near Bonn we now work exclusively with "In-Office-Bleaching", meaning directly in our practice, and this presents several advantages for the patient:

  • the treatment lasts only between 60 and 90 minutes,

  • the result is visible immediately;

  • we can control the bleaching process and thereby the level of lightening precisely;

  • the bleaching system ZOOM2 used by us, a combination of bleaching gel and the bleaching lamp, has performed the best among all known bleaching tests thus far.


Process of a bleaching procedure or teeth lightening:

  • Preparation of teeth and gums: All surfaces, such as lips and gums, that should not come in contact with the bleaching gel, are protected with a silicone mask.

  • Application of the bleaching gel onto the teeth

  • The bleaching gel is activated with the Zoom bleaching lamp and then is allowed to sit for 15 minutes.

  • Two repetitions are performed in step two and three (apply bleaching gel, activate with the Zoom bleaching lamp, allow to sit for 15 minutes).

  • In conclusion we apply a protective gel for re-mineralization of the teeth, which is left on for 5 minutes.

  • Now the patient can rinse the mouth and enjoy the result.

This teeth whitening system is a scientifically proven, safe and effective procedure which takes effect in less than one hour. It is ideal for all who wish immediate results! You will have sparkling white teeth that remain white for many years with the proper care.

What must be considered after bleaching:

  • In order to ensure that your lightened teeth remain white and beautiful for as long as possible, you must refrain from consuming discoloring food and drink such as coffee, tea, red wine, cola, carrots or red beets for at least 2 days after bleaching. Smoking should also be avoided.

  • During the first 2 weeks after bleaching the color of your teeth may darken somewhat. Therefore, we recommend that you have your teeth bleached somewhat lighter than ultimately desired.

  • To keep your teeth white as long as possible, we recommend that our patients perform systematic oral hygiene at home (brushing their teeth and using dental floss or inter-dental brushes) as well as regular professional teeth cleaning by the dentist.
