One-Hour Office Whitening

Posted in Teeth Whitening

Brighter, whiter teeth are easier to get than you think. Professional grade whitening treatments are a great way to loosen and remove deep-set stains that accumulate inside of tooth enamel from the food and drinks we consume. Most people find that a professional whitening treatment lightens their teeth by several shades and makes their smile look several years younger than it actually is.

One of the great ways to whiten your teeth is through an in-office teeth whitening session. These treatments are ideal for people with busy schedules that want instant results without having to use a kit at home each day to get the same results. If a big event such as a wedding, job interview, or important date is coming up, then an in-office whitening treatment can transform your smile as soon as the day of your event.

The entire process takes about one hour for most patients. It involves isolating your teeth with a protective barrier and then applying the concentrated whitening solution over the enamel. This solution then breaks up stain particles, thanks to being accelerated with the use of a whitening light at the same time. The solution is then rinsed away and re-applied one or two more times until full results are achieved. As soon as all of the stain has been removed, you’ll get the chance to look in the mirror with a shade guide to see the amount of change that has been achieved in this simple procedure. What easier way is there to walk out of the office in an hour with a white smile?
