The Teeth Whitening Procedure. When undergoing in office whitening, your dentist will first remove any excess plaque buildup that has accumulated on top of your teeth. Your dentist will then coat your teeth with a whitening solution; a curing light or laser will then be positioned near your teeth to heat and activate the solution. The solution will be left on your teeth for approximately an hour. Once the desired shade is reached, your dentist will then rinse your teeth off with a fluoride solution that will alleviate any sensitivity your teeth might have incurred during the procedure. In many cases, in office teeth whitening is completed within one session, but if the patient’s teeth are more severely discolored, it may take multiple sessions to reach the maximum shade.
Oakwood Dental Arts of Shrewsbury also offers professional home teeth whitening kits. This form of whitening can be applied by the patient themselves in the comfort of their own home and at their own convenience. In this case, your dentist will provide you with a series of professional trays, mouth pieces, and teeth whitening gels for you to apply.
