Teeth Whitening (Bleaching)

Tooth color plays a big role in your appearance. It is possible to have teeth whitening in order to have whiter shades of teeth. There are two types of bleaching: Office(clinical) bleaching which gives a quicker result, and home bleaching where you follow a regimen to whiten your teeth.

What is in-office (clinical) bleaching?

It is the whitening technique that is performed by your dentist. It is a better solution for those who want to achieve the results quicker. Dentist applies a whitening gel onto your teeth and activates it with the help of UV light or laser and it nearly takes 1 hour. It is also called laser technique.

What is at-home teeth bleaching?

Your dentist firstly check and examine general condition of your teeth and performs a tooth tartar and plaque removal, which is called “scaling”. Your teeth are measured in order to prepare a whitening kit which contains a whitening gel inside. After you brush your teeth at night, you put the kit into your mouth and it should stay 6 to 8 hours. This procedure usually starts in the upper jaw and then follows the lower one.

Combining both in-office and at-home bleaching can provide the best results. Your dentist can inform you  whether you can combine the two or not.
