What Happens During In-Office Whitening?
A typical dental whitening procedure will first involve cleaning the teeth to remove plaque and other particles. After the teeth have been cleaned and the mouth rinsed, the dentist will apply a plastic material to the gums to protect them from being lightened. A special dental bleaching gel will then be applied to your teeth.
This bleaching gel usually consists of a mix of hydrogen peroxide and other non-toxic chemicals. After about fifteen minutes, the whitening bleach gel will be removed from the teeth. The dentist will then remove the gum protector. Your mouth will then be thoroughly rinsed out to remove all traces of the whitening agent. That’s it! That’s the whole treatment for in-office whitening. All you need to do afterward is enjoy your sparkling white teeth!
