Teeth Whitening has been around many years now. Used correctly, it is a safe procedure and can lighten your teeth by several shades. Used incorrectly or with the wrong product and you can damage your teeth and your gums. Our cosmetic dentists at Dental Essence will ensure your teeth are protected and your smile enhanced with our whitening techniques.
The whitening agents are generally hydrogen peroxide-based gels ranging from a mild 5% all the way to 35% hydrogen peroxide. The stronger gels are used for in-office whitening where we whiten your teeth in about one hour, giving you an instant smile. This method is for people who want a result straight away, or cannot regularly use the take-home whitening kits.
Before any procedure, we will inform you of the risks by way of written informed consent documentation. Individual results may vary.
