What is the process for Tooth Whitening and how will it make my smile brighter?

Teeth which have been stained by tobacco, coffee, wine, or other dietary products can yellow over time.

If the teeth are straight and uniform, and don’t have fillings or other dental restorations present, they can often be whitened significantly with bleach.
Most commonly, this is done using custom-made bleach trays which you can get from a dentist.

The process is simple. Impressions are made of your teeth, and stone cast replicas are produced.
A sheet of clear vinyl is heated and vacuum-formed over the cast.

When the plastic cools, it sets up in the shape of your teeth. The trays are trimmed, removed from the cast and disinfected.

A specially-formulated clear bleaching gel is dispensed into the trays.
The trays are seated onto the teeth, and the patient wears them for the recommended length of time per day, generally measured in minutes.

The process is repeated for a few days to a couple of weeks, ideally under the supervision of a dentist, until the teeth reach their desired shade.
Results can be outstanding, and typically last for years.
