Teeth Whitening Procedures
If you want to have your teeth whitened, you may need to make a couple of visits over a couple of months.
During an in-chair whitening procedure, a bleaching product is painted to your teeth, and then a light or laser is shone on them to activate the whitening. In-chair whitening takes about an hour.
Your Miranda dentist will take impressions of your teeth to make a mould and tell you how to use it with the bleaching gel.
Then, using your mouthguard at home, regularly apply the gel for a specific period of time for over 2 to 4 weeks.
Some whitening gels can be left on the teeth for up to 8 hours each time, which shortens the treatment period to 1 week.
