Fast Teeth Whitening Services
If you’re unhappy with your smile, a potential fix can be provided with teeth whitening services. This article will summarize what a typical teeth whitening procedure looks like.
Before the actual teeth whitening, you will have a consultation appointment with the dentist to determine how light you want to go. The dentist wants to make sure you’re completely happy with the result, so pay attention!
At the start of the actual procedure, the dentist will apply vitamin E to your lips for protection. They will then place a retractor in your mouth to keep your teeth accessible for the whole procedure.
After a few minutes of preparation, the dentist will apply a liquid dam to your gums to shield them from the whitening gel. This dam is hardened with a blue UV light.
Once all of the protective measures are in place, the whitener will be applied and a blue light will be attached to the retractor. The first round takes about 15 minutes, and then you will have the whitening gel taken off.
After this and a brief break, the dentist will administer a second layer of teeth whitener and another 15 minute round with the blue light.
After one more round, your teeth will be cleaned off and the protective materials removed. The dentist will give you a mouth guard to use with maintenance whitening formula and gel for any consequential gum sensitivity.
