Teeth Whitening or teeth bleaching allows the patient with healthy, unrestored teeth to whiten their teeth. Teeth can discolor through various stains accumulated from certain food products. The most common form of whitening is the in-home whitening trays. The dentist takes impressions of your teeth and then makes trays, that the patient will take home and wear with a special gel for a couple hours a day.
Another common way to whiten your teeth is in office whitening. This method has advantages over the trays because the patient can see dramatic results in the brightness of their teeth in just one appointment. This method involves the dentist using a specific light that whitens your teeth.
