Teeth whitening is a very common treatment found in a dental office. There are generally two whitening methods available, which include:
- In-Office Whitening: This whitening method usually involves about an hour at the dentist’s office. First, your dentist will cover your lips, gums, and cheeks to protect them from the whitening solution. Your dentist will then coat your teeth with the whitening solution and he will activate that solution with a special light. When the gel is activated, it will seep into your teeth and break up any discoloration or stains. You will generally go through this process about three times to achieve accurate results.
- Take-Home Whitening: This whitening method usually involves whitening trays, whitening toothpaste, whitening strips, or whitening gels. The most common type of whitening dentists use is the use of whitening trays. When you first meet with your dentist, he will make impressions of your arch and will make a customized tray that will fit perfectly over your teeth. Your dentist will fill the tray with the whitening solution, give the tray (or trays) to you, and provide you with the proper instructions in order to complete the process with your desired results.
