Tooth whitening is a process in Dentistry wherein the natural tooth color is being restored through removal of stains and discolorations. Whitening can be done in the dental office or at home.
In-office Whitening System is suitable for someone looking for immediate results. The process takes approximately 90 minutes. Outcome varies depending on age, starting shade and the condition of the teeth. In some instances, the procedure may have to be done more than once.
Another alternative is the Take Home Teeth Whitening. In this procedure, the whitening gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that will fit over the teeth. Maximum results are normally achieved in 10 to 14 days. It should be noted that a thorough oral exam is necessary to determine candidacy for these procedures.
