How does teeth whitening work?

Professional teeth whitening procedures use a hydrogen peroxide bleaching solution to brighten your teeth and give you a more brilliant, attractive smile. Teeth whitening is available in the office, or you may get an at-home treatment to take with you after your appointment. Sometimes, the bleaching agent is exposed to light or heat to enhance the effects.

What’s the difference between in-office and at-home whitening treatments?

All the whitening solutions we use are safe and effective, and all of them are more effective than over-the-counter options available at your pharmacy. However, there are some pros and cons to both in-office and at-home treatments.

An at-home whitening kit allows you to whiten your teeth at a time that fits your schedule, but because they feature a weaker bleaching agent, you’ll need to repeat the process every night for about two weeks. Many people choose this option because of the convenience, and some people prefer to use a weaker bleaching agent to reduce sensitivity.

An in-office teeth whitening treatment usually takes one or two appointments, each between one and two hours. Because a dentist supervises professional in-office teeth whitening, a stronger bleaching agent is used, providing more noticeable results, much faster.

At Tamarac Dental Care, your dentist will recommend the best teeth whitening solution for you, based on your teeth, the health of your enamel, and your overall oral health. If you’re interested in a brighter, whiter smile, call or make an appointnent online using the online scheduling tool.
