This is the bleaching of teeth using peroxide based dental products. The bleaching can be done at the surgery by a dentist or at home by the patient. Both types of bleaching can be used together to get exceptional results.
In Surgery/ 1 Hour Bleaching
A Carbamide peroxide bleaching gel is applied to the teeth by a dentist often in conjunction with a blue UV light. As the in surgery bleach can be mildly irritating to the gums, they are covered in order to protect them before the application can occur.
Home bleaching kits consist of a pair of custom fit bleaching trays and a set of bleaching syringes. The bleaching trays are loaded with drops of bleaching gel at home by the patient and are worn through the night. The process of lightening the teeth usually takes between 4-6 weeks. The trays can be kept and reused at a later date to 'top up' the bleaching if required.
