Teeth whitening, or bleaching of the teeth, is a very conservative procedure that can produce great results for minimal cost and no invasive treatment. Teeth whitening is best done at home after custom fitted trays are made for the patient.
This simple procedure requires having two impressions taken in the dental office. The patient will wear these trays with a bleach solution for approximately 7-14 days for 2-3 hours per day.The results are long lasting but may require 1 or 2 nights of touch-up every 6 months.
The only possible side effect is a temporary sensitivity. Dental bleach materials today all contain products, such as fluoride, to reduce this sensitivity. Bleaching is best suited for teeth that have become darker with aging, but can be used successfully by patients of all ages.
