Flossing, brushing, and routine professional dental cleaning are everyday ways to keep your teeth white, healthy, and bright. However, at some point, you may feel that your teeth lack some sparkle or have become more yellow than they used to be. Luckily for you, cosmetic dentistry has a modern solution for you: Teeth whitening. In this piece, we will discuss what to expect from an in-office teeth whitening procedure.

Initial consultation

Your dentist will take a look at your teeth and determine if teeth whitening is the right procedure for you. In the case of infected dentin, teeth whitening will not whiten your teeth.

Whitening phase

Teeth whitening in Highland, CA, utilizes hydrogen peroxide concentrated gels. Your dentist will apply a rubber-like material on the gums to protect the tissue from irritation from the bleaching gel. The dentist will spread the bleaching agent on your teeth for about fifteen to thirty minutes, depending on the severity of teeth discoloration. The procedure may involve the use of laser light that speeds up the bleaching process by activating the chemicals in the bleaching agent.

Final gel application

Teeth whitening in Highland, CA, may be procured in two phases where your dentist will suction the bleaching agent, check if the stains are out, and reapply the bleaching agent. The results should be immediate with up to even eight shades whiter.
