Teeth whitening is a non-invasive treatment for anyone who wants their smile to look whiter.
Over time, drinking coffee, red wine, smoking cigarettes, certain medications, and aging can stain our teeth.
The procedure involves application of a tooth whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide which removes all the staining particles from the top surface of your teeth. Then, a special heating lamp is aimed at your teeth for three 20-minute intervals, with reapplication of the gel between intervals. A protective barrier is used during the whitening procedure to keep your lips, gums, and tongue away from the whitening gel so it stays in place on your teeth. For optimal results, the dentist will also give you custom fitted whitening trays for your teeth so you can follow-up at home with bleaching solutions.
