If you would enjoy learning more about the process of tooth whitening to help you better prepare for your upcoming whitening procedure, our team at Waterview Dental Group is happy to be of assistance. Below, we have provided a step-by-step review of the in-office teeth whitening performed at our dental office.

Professional teeth whitening is designed to be simple and pain-free–able to be performed in just one visit with our team so that you can quickly enjoy the gorgeous smile you have always wanted.

Step 1: First, we cover up the gums so that the powerful whitening solution doesn’t directly contact the gum tissues and cause irritation that results in a red and swollen smile.

Step 2: Next, we apply the whitening solution by painting it onto every inch of your teeth.

Step 3: Finally, with the help of an ultraviolet light, we activate the whitening solution, and the gel penetrates deep into the tooth enamel to break down and reduce any staining there.

Depending on your desired treatment results, these three steps may need to be repeated a few times, causing your overall procedure to last around 45 minutes.
