Dental Bleaching

1. What is it?

Dental bleaching is a common procedure in general dentistry that can lightens the color of teeth.

2. How does our dentist bleach your teeth?

The dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect your gums. Bleach is then applied to the teeth. We offer a safe, reliable technique involving the bleaching of the dentin using hydrogen peroxide activated by our state of the art light curing devices, all of this in order to get a whiter tone that would be transduce thru the enamel and give a far better looking color than it originally was. Before the bleaching procedure, we will take care of removing all types of acquired stains from your enamel by making a good prophylaxis.

3. How long does dental whitening take?

The length of time it takes to whiten your teeth will vary with the amount of discoloration of your teeth. For treatments performed by your dentist, it generally takes 45-90 minutes per visit to make your teeth brighter.

4. Is there any side effect of tooth bleaching?

Most people that do dental bleaching experience few or no side effects and are satisfied with the results. However, some people may encounter one or more of the following side effects associated with teeth whitening such as tooth sensitivity (during the bleaching process and for a short period after the procedure) and soft tissue irritation (because the bleaching solution is exposed to the gum tissue during the bleaching process).
