How Teeth Whitening Works
Teeth whitening is a rather simple process that can have your teeth looking shades whiter in about an hour. For most patients, we recommend that you undergo a professional cleaning before the procedure to ensure your teeth are best prepared for the cleaning process. Once cleaned, the dentist will polish your teeth to remove any last plaque on the surface. Then barriers and other equipment will be put in place to ensure the whitening solution doesn’t come in contact with your cheeks, gums or other sensitive surfaces. The whitening solution is then carefully applied and activated by the dentist. Reapplication may occur over the next 30-60 minutes, and this process helps to immediately whiten the teeth. Once the desired stage is reached, your teeth will be rinsed and fluoride may be applied to help calm any sensitivity. Afterward, you’re free to show the world your new smile!
