Tooth whitening: Procedure

In-office teeth whitening in an hour (which people mistakenly call laser teeth whitening)

Written by south Florida cosmetic dentist Dr. Jeffrey Lissauer, serving Boynton Beach, Delray Beach and Palm Beach

First, your dentist will make sure that you are a good candidate for teeth whitening and explain the procedure.

To maximize the results, your teeth should to be as clean as possible. Thus, most dentists highly advise a professional teeth cleaning by your hygienist immediately prior.

The two most popular companies that specialize in tooth whitening done in dental offices are Zoom® and Brite Smile®. The two companies yield similar results, and the procedures are similar and quite simple.

After the cleaning, a liquid gel will be placed on your teeth, and a specially designed light will be used to quicken the whitening process. People often mistakenly refer to this as laser teeth whitening, but a laser is not actually used. (Learn more about teeth whitening methods.)

The whitening will take about an hour.  You can relax, watch TV, or listen to music throughout the whole process.

At the end, your dentist will make you custom trays that precisely fit your teeth.  You will take these trays with you, as well as extra whitening solution, in case you wish to periodically whiten your teeth at home.
