Bleaching (Teeth Whitening)

Bleaching is used to improve stained or discoloured teeth.  There are two ways to achieve this. 

In-chair whitening involves the application of a hydrogen-peroxide gel to the tooth surface, which is then activated by a bright light.  The entire procedure takes about an hour. The results are immediate.

Home-whitening involves using a custom-made mouth guard and placing a hydrogen-peroxide gel in this and wearing for an hour a day.  This takes at least two weeks to achieve results.
