Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that helps remove stains and discoloration from your teeth and improves the brightness of your smile. It’s a relatively quick and painless process. Patients have more predictable and longer lasting results using this method.
Types of Teeth Whitening
There are generally two types of teeth whitening that patients can undergo at a dental practice. The first type of teeth whitening method uses a special whitening gel that is professionally applied to the patient’s teeth. The gel contains an active ingredient that helps remove stains from the enamel layer of the teeth. The gel also helps remove some surface stains from the teeth.
The second type of teeth whitening method is laser whitening which uses a special laser or light wand that helps remove surface stains from the enamel.
