Is a fulfilling and sought-after dental procedure aimed to improve smile contrast with the other aesthetic facial features. It has been practiced as far back as ancient Egyptians times, as a means to influence social interactions by communicating health, beauty, and affluence. At first glance, it may seem to be a rather aggressive procedure, utilizing powerful oxygen-releasing substances – hydrogen peroxide.

"In my over 20 years of experience in using multiple bleaching systems (Laser, Blue Light, Trays, Strips…) both in the USA and Germany, I can tell you with certainty that professional teeth whitening is not dangerous if done properly. On the contrary, it has a strengthening effect on the teeth when done as a whitening/remineralization protocol." Dr.-medic stom., D.D.S. (USA) Costin Marinescu
Bleaching provides a distinctively brighter smile but also the emotional impact is immense and the social benefits are considerable. At the same time, when conducted as part of a remineralization protocol, the teeth gain a newly-infused high-quality mineral layer, making them stronger against the corrosive properties of acidic foods and drinks.
