About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the simplest cosmetic procedures - if done right. Doing it right means using a proper whitening agent (that is, a good peroxide gel) and an appropriate whitening accelerator.

The most practical accelerator is an LED lamp emitting cold blue light with a wavelength of around 465 nanometers. This wavelength of light is ideal for activating the hydrogen peroxide and accelerating the teeth whitening process. This is the type of accelerator light that we use.

The procedure itself is very simple, just three steps:

  1. Hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth.
  2. A cold blue light is placed directly in front of your exposed teeth and set to run for 15-20 minutes per treatment.
  3. Then you rinse and repeat. Typically, we perform 2-3 treatments, with 3 giving the best results.

You may want to bring your MP3 player with you to your teeth whitening appointment to keep yourself entertained while your teeth get whiter and brighter!

A cosmetic teeth whitening treatment will NOT make your teeth pearly white. It will make them whiter. How much whiter? It really depends on a multitude of factors, including how stained your teeth were before the whitening, what kind of staining agent caused most of the discoloration, how well your enamel reacts to peroxide, and the number of treatments performed.

It also depends on the kind of gel (carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide), the concentration of the teeth whitening gel, and the kind of application system that is used.

Most people will get impressive results while a few will get less dramatic results, but 99% of people are very satisfied with the results they obtain with our system. Some people have teeth that cannot really be whitened at all, such as those that were stained by the antibiotic tetracycline or those who have a condition called fluorosis.

If needed, we will recommend a follow-up take-home treatment such as a whitening kit or pen to continue the whitening process at home. You will receive after-care instructions. It's important to follow the instructions for the longest-lasting results.
