Teeth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discolouration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.
Whitening is not a one-time procedure. It will need to be repeated from time to time if you want to maintain the brighter colour.
In-Office Whitening is a procedure designed to lighten the colour of your teeth using a hydrogen peroxide gel. The In-Office Whitening treatment involves using the gel to produce maximum whitening results in the shortest possible time.
During the procedure the whitening gel will be applied to your teeth for two 20-minute sessions, with an optional third 20-minute session.
During the entire treatment, a plastic retractor will be placed in your mouth to help keep it open and the soft tissues of your mouth (i.e. lips, gums, cheeks and tongue) will be covered to ensure they are not exposed to the gel.
Lip balm may also be applied as needed and you will be provided protective eyewear for your eyes. After the treatment is completed, the retractor and all gel and tissue coverings will be removed from your mouth. Before and after the treatment, the shade of your upper-front teeth will be assessed and recorded.
