Tooth whitening is the process of removing stains from the enamel of your teeth by applying a special bleaching material. The bleach material penetrates the outer layer of the enamel and takes out stains that cannot be removed otherwise. Professional tooth whitening systems are administered and overseen by your dentist and dental team.
Tooth whitening done in the dental office involves applying a strong peroxide material to your teeth for a period of time. This bleach solution is removed at the end of your dental appointment. During the appointment, a laser or other light may be used to increase the effect of in-office bleaching. Regardless of whether the light is used or not, you will leave the dental office with notably whiter teeth.
Professional in-office bleaching provides the most immediate results.
Professional take home bleaching has the most research proving its effectiveness and is less costly than in-office bleaching. Non-professional bleaching systems have more risk of complications (i.e. tooth sensitivity) and less predictability.
