What is Teeth Whitening?
Types of Teeth Whitening
There are two types of teeth whitening: in-office and at-home teeth whitening.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is done at our dental office and usually consists of a one-hour appointment. Dr. Tim DePalma or Dr. Marissa Garcia will apply a high-concentration bleaching compound to your teeth and activate it with a special lamp, resulting in dramatically whiter teeth. Professional teeth whitening involves using a bleaching agent, typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, to break down stain molecules and leave teeth looking brighter.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
At-home teeth whitening, on the other hand, involves using a customized tray that is filled with whitening gel, which you must wear for several hours a day. At-home kits typically take longer to deliver results but offer the convenience of doing it yourself in the comfort of your own home. At-home teeth whitening usually involves using a whitening toothpaste or gel with a lower concentration of peroxide, although this method may take longer to achieve results.
