14. Can the dentist whiten my teeth?

Posted by:

There are several methods available for bleaching the teeth: in office, overnight or daily. ZOOM bleaching is done in our office. One session generally lasts one and a half to two hours, and you can read or relax during the treatment. For overnight bleaching, we take an impression of your teeth and create bleaching trays. Each day you fill the bleaching trays with a small amount of bleaching gel and wear it as instructed. The overnight bleaching process takes approximately two weeks.
Other over-the-counter daily bleaching products are available, but it is important to use any bleaching product only under the supervision of a dentist. To achieve the whitening results you desire, the CDA recommends that you seek the professional advice of a dentist, including examination and diagnosis of the cause of tooth discoloration, before you begin any bleaching program.
