In-office bleaching is a system that is done with one visit to the dentist. This bleaching method requires the patient’s teeth to be prepared with whitening solution, which is then activated by a special light. Patient’s with limited time to bleach at home may find this to be a preferable option.
Take home bleaching technique utilizes clear plastic trays made from molds of your teeth. Whitening solution can then be put in the trays and slipped over the teeth. Trays are worn for a few hours per day, for several days, while the effects of the teeth whitening process takes place. Thereafter, this procedure can be used at the patient’s discretion when a whitening touch-up is desired.
