How Teeth Whitening Works
Tooth whitening is a bleaching process achieved with either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. An oxidation reaction takes place that breaks down the staining agents.
Teeth Whitening Options
Professional teeth bleaching at your dentist’s office is the fastest and safest way to whiten your teeth. Under the supervision of your dentist, a higher concentration of whitening agents is used. Your gums are protected from exposure to these agents as they otherwise could be damaged by the process. Additionally, a special light or laser may be used to enhance the treatment. This typically takes less than 90 minutes and can produce whitening of your teeth up to 10 shades. Book your 30-minute session.
