Tooth whitening is a safe and effective procedure under the supervision of a dentist. There are two methods of bleaching. The first method is to make customized whitening trays specifically made to each patient. The material is then dispensed into the tray and inserted into the patient’s mouth. Typically, the trays are worn for 30 minutes for approximately 5-7 days. The second is to have the teeth professionally whitened at the dental office. Our office provides the Zoom! Whitespeed Whitening System. In this procedure, the dentist will apply a UV light to enhance the whitening experience and within approximately 1 hour, the patient will have whiter teeth.
