Teeth whitening has become a part of routine dental care for millions of people. It is a simple way to adjust the color of just a few, or all of your teeth. Teeth whitening is only effective when applied to natural tooth enamel; if you have crowns, implants, fillings, or other restorations, it will be necessary to consider the color and or shade of your restorations in order to match your natural teeth.

Teeth whitening usually requires two visits. During your initial visit, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate clear custom-made plastic trays that will be used during the home application. During your second appointment, the trays will be tested for proper fit, and adjusted if necessary. After the trays are filled with the whitening gel they are worn twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a period as long as two weeks, depending on the desired level of whitening.

It is important to note that some people experience some tooth sensitivity during whitening. this is normal and typically subsides shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
