What is an in-house whitening?

In-house tooth whitening involves the patient visiting the dental practice to receive the treatment there and then with the dentist.

The laser whitening process, for example, is as follows:

  1. The teeth are cleaned and prepared, ready for the bleaching gel to be applied.
  2. The gums, cheeks, and lips are covered and lifted out of the way, which makes sure that they don’t touch the teeth during treatment. Exposure of gum tissue by the peroxide gel may result in a painful burning sensation
  3. The patient’s eyes are also provided with protection against the light produced by the laser
  4. The bleaching gel is placed on the teeth and activated by the laser
  5. The gel is left to work for around 15 minutes, which is then wiped off and repeated two more times. The overall procedure takes around 1-1 ½ hours.
  6. The gel is then removed from the teeth, revealing a whiter and healthier looking smile.
