After an examination of your teeth, gums and supporting bone structure, your dentist will inform you if tooth whitening is a safe option.
Once you’re cleared for in-chair treatment, your dentist will –
- Prepare your mouth by covering your lips and gums so that only your teeth are exposed
- Apply a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth
- Expose your teeth to a special light for 15 minutes to help the gel penetrate and whiten your teeth. Invite you to watch TV or listen to music as you relax in the chair
- Reapply the gel and light treatment two more times
You can expect a total tooth whitening treatment time between 45-90 minutes.
