The most commonly used teeth whitening procedures are professional home whitening systems and in-chair whitening. Professional dental whitening is fast and most of all, effective. The procedure is non-invasive, as it doesn’t involve drilling or removal of a tooth surface. If you are a good candidate, your dentist will recommend the best tooth whitening option that suits your needs and lifestyle.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
This type of dental whitening is carried out in the dental clinic. Your dentist uses special equipment to make your teeth several shades lighter in 1-2 hours, depending on the degree of brightness you want to achieve. In-office whitening is the fastest, safest and most effective way of whitening the teeth. The process involves:
Use of gum protection and gel to minimise sensitivity during and after the treatment
Application of peroxide gel on teeth. The whitening gel will take effect upon contact with the tooth or using a laser light.
After an hour or two, the gel and protective coating are removed to expose whiter teeth.
Home Teeth Whitening
The home whitening system is a simple and very cost-effective way to brighten your smile. Your dentist will provide you with a whitening kit that consists of custom whitening trays and professional-grade peroxide based gel. This involves:
Taking impressions of your teeth
Making moulds to be sent to the laboratory
Fabricate custom whitening trays based on your mould
Giving instructions on how to wear and use them the tray at home
The whitening gel is placed on your custom tray that looks like a fine mouthguard then placed onto your teeth for two hours per day. The instructions your dentist has provided should be followed carefully to ensure a safe and achievable result. The result can be seen in around 1-2 weeks. Once you have achieved your desired result, you can discontinue the treatment or consult your dentist in the future to maintain your white smile.
