Professional Teeth Whitening

Tooth Whitening

Teeth whitening, is a common procedure in general dentistry but most especially in the field of cosmetic dentistry.

There are two main methods of tooth whitening. The first involves applying a high concentration of oxidising agent for a short period of time (the so called office bleach). This produces quick results but risks chemical burns to the soft tissues.

The alternative method to teeth whitening involves using a thin mouthguard to hold a low concentration of oxidising agent next to the teeth for several hours a day for a period of some weeks. This is slower but has lower risks to the soft tissues.
