In Office Whitening

A relatively quick cosmetic procedure is the in chair whitening.

Colour enhancement will lighten your teeth with light activating bleaching agents. The procedure begins with the assessment of the shade before whitening; the teeth are then cleaned with light pumice slurry.

Isolation of the teeth and blocking out of the gums with a flexible sheet or dam held in place by a plastic frame are then quickly completed.

Once the teeth are isolated they are covered in a layer of light activated hydrogen peroxide containing gel. A specialized blue light source is then placed directly in front of the teeth activating the hydrogen peroxide in the gel. The hydrogen peroxide produces highly reactive molecules that then break down the coloured compounds that have sustained the teeth.

Benefits of an in office whitening procedure; the procedure usually takes less than an hour; brushing, flossing and occasional touch-ups at home will keep your smile looking bright. The procedure is monitored and safe to teeth.
