In clinic procedure for teeth whitening

  • Teeth are isolated with a dental dam to prevent the whitening agent from irritating or damaging soft oral tissues.
  • Whitening gel is applied to the teeth and exposed to laser light / Zoom light /or LED light.

At home teeth whitening systems (home bleaching)

The dentist molds vinyl tray to fit your teeth and then gives you a prescribed gel containing carbomide peroxide to put in the trays. You go home load the gel in the trays wear the trays in place for six to eight hours a day for 2-3 weeks. When the peroxide begins its work it introduces oxygen into the enamel of your teeth, literally bleaching any staining element present.

The gel is a gentle solution and does not damage the tooth structure.
