Your dental practice in Munich offers excellent tooth whitening
Professional bleaching helps whiten your teeth gently while taking good care of them. Whether you are looking for comprehensive bleaching treatments to whiten all of your teeth or you want to return individual teeth that are especially discoloured to their original colour, we will be more than glad to advise you personally on your options.
How are my teeth bleached?
For professional bleaching in our dental practice we use a gel made of 40% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). This substance is also used in hair dyes and for disinfecting wounds.
Over time, pigments from coffee, red wine, tobacco and so on can be deposited onto your teeth, causing them to darken. The H202 gel gently bleaches these pigments.
Many teeth can also become discoloured through root canal work. In such cases we insert the special gel directly into the root canal to lighten up the tooth from inside.
What are the first steps in the bleaching process?
Before starting the bleaching process, the dentist checks your teeth and gums and carries out any preliminary treatments that may be necessary. Any loose fillings or crown margins need to be rectified. Your teeth should also be cleaned professionally. It is important that your teeth are in perfect condition to ensure the lightening process is successful.
Are there any side effects or risks during the bleaching process?
Our dental practice specialises in performing the bleaching treatment professionally and correctly. If teeth are well maintained, this time-tested and well-researched technology will not cause them any damage. The only side effect is that your teeth may become sensitive to hot and cold, but this disappears after a few days.

What is the bleaching process in our practice?
We carry out the bleaching treatment directly in our dental practice (“in-office bleaching”). This means that it is professionally monitored by a dentist at all times. The initial results are visible immediately.
We will schedule a two-hour appointment for the bleaching process. Your teeth should be professionally cleaned a few days beforehand.
We would be happy to arrange a consultation to discuss whether your teeth are suitable for bleaching. We will show you all of your options for a radiant smile!
