Teeth Whitening is the most requested cosmetic dental procedure. It is a non-invasive cosmetic change that can greatly improve your looks. Over time, teeth can become stained by a variety of factors, including smoking and drinking red wine, coffee and tea. Stained teeth can make a person appear older than they really are, and many patients find that teeth whitening refreshes the appearance of their smiles.
Whitening restores natural tooth colour and bleaching whitens beyond the natural colour. There are many methods available, including in-office bleaching, which is done by a dentist. In-office teeth whitening can be completed in one visit to the cosmetic dentist. This is the most efficient means of whitening.

At-home bleaching is a method used at home by the patient. Bleaching methods use carbamide peroxide, which reacts with water to form hydrogen peroxide. At-home whitening is the most popular approach today.
A dentist takes an impression of your teeth and makes a custom-fitted tray and you will fill with whitening gel and wear up to two hours daily or at night for about two weeks.
Many whitening kits contain a solution of 10-15% carbamide peroxide.
