It is done by your dentist after carefully isolating the gums and other soft tissues from the teeth by applying a gel or rubber dam. The whitening product (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) will be then applied onto your teeth by using a specially made tray. When the active ingredient breaks down the oxygen will get into the enamel and the colour of the tooth will be made lighter. The treatment procedure requires multiple visits and usually takes around two to four weeks to complete the procedure. Other forms of teeth whitening are laser whitening or power whitening. In this, after applying the whitening product a light or laser is shone on to the ingredient to activate the chemical. Power whitening procedure will speed up the whitening process and will make the teeth lighter when compared to conventional bleaching.
