The color of a person’s teeth can become dull and stained resulting from various factors, this include drinking tea, coffee and wine. Foods including berries, citrus as well as tomato paste can ruin an individual’s smile.

What to Expect at a Routine Teeth Whitening Session

The dental practitioner will make sure you are a good candidate for this treatment by checking out your medical history and examining your teeth.  The process begins with the patient relaxed in the dental chair while the dentist apply gel or inserts a rubber dam or shield over the gums to protect them from irritation.

The whitening solution is then spread over the stained surface of the teeth. In some cases, heat in the form of a laser or LED light might be applied to intensify the procedure. The visual effects of the whitening solution can appear within 30 to 60 minutes.

  • Will it damage my enamel? Under the supervision of a licensed dentist, the whitening process is completely safe for your enamel and gums.
