Whitening with professional-strength mouth trays takes place in the office. First, your teeth will be examined and cleaned to make sure there are no cavities, loose fillings, gum problems or other issues that may be exacerbated by the bleaching process. Dr. Radcliffe will make a custom-fit mouth tray for your teeth. Then the bleaching gel, a hydrogen peroxide solution, is applied to your teeth in the tray.
Advantages of in-office tooth whitening over take-home whitening include:
- Professional supervision
- Safe and simple
- No sensitivity
