Febrile diseases or genetic diseases in the growth and development period
Some medications such as tetracycline and iron preparations taken during development
High fluoride intake through drinking water or various other means

Teeth exposed to trauma
Effects of the aging process

How Is Teeth Whitening Done?
Teeth Whitening is carried out by providing gels with various chemical content to contact the colored tooth surface for a certain period of time. It can be applied in two different ways, home-type and office-type teeth whitening:
In home-type teeth whitening practice, measurements are taken from the patient's teeth, and transparent, elastic plaques suitable for teeth are prepared in the laboratory on this size. Household bleaching gels and the application method of these plaques are explained in detail and delivered to the patient. The patient does the application in a certain part of the day (preferably during the night sleep period) as described. The desired result can usually be achieved within about a week.
In the office type teeth whitening method, the applications must be done by the physician. The desired result can be obtained with a few sessions of approximately 30-40 minutes. From time to time, the most ideal result can be achieved by using both methods together.
