The most common type of home teeth whitening involves placing a gel-like whitening solution, which usually contains hydrogen peroxide, in a tray that resembles a Nightguard or mouth guard. Over-the-counter mouthpieces are unlikely to fit correctly and can cause gum irritation if the whitening agent seeps out. The tray is then placed over the teeth for a certain period of time, anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour depending on the material.
Sapphire Single-Visit Teeth Whitening
We start the in-office whitening process by covering your lips and gums leaving only your teeth exposed. At this time, we can usually estimate how white your new smile will be by matching your teeth with a whitening shade and estimate approximately up to 9 shades whiter from here.
Next a high-strength proprietary whitening gel is applied to the surfaces of your teeth. This special gel is specifically designed to work with the in-office whitening light.
The in-office whitening light is placed directly in front of your teeth to maximize exposure to the gel. The special light activates the gel which gently penetrates the outer-most (enamel) layer of your teeth; breaking up stains and discoloration during the process.
Smile with confidence as you leave the office with a brighter, whiter smile!
