Hydrogen Peroxide Teeth whitening has come a long way from ancient traditions of wine and vinegar mixed with pumice or if you were a roman using urine to whiten! whitening your teeth used to be a sign of prestige and wealth
Today we whiten our teeth for many more reasons including: self-love confidence, oral hygiene weddings and life events teeth whitening services are much more accessible these days and more affordable than ever before.
Teeth whitening is the process of removing surface stains by using whitening gels composed of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These gels work to remove stain by using an oxidation reaction to penetrate the deepest part of the teeth. Teeth are very porous and therefore allow for the penetration of the bleaching chemicals into the enamel. Other sources of teeth whitening agents can include whitening toothpastes which work much like pumice, with fine grit that is more abrasive than regular toothpaste alone, helping to scrub away the stains. This form of whitening takes longer to take effect, so results are not immediate. Teeth whitening using professional grade gels will remove the stains that you cannot brush away manually.

When we first meet (either at my location or in the comfort of your own home), the first ten minutes will be dedicated to filling out a short medical history and treatment consent form so that I can get to know you and your teeth a bit better. At this stage we will make sure it is beneficial for you to have your whitening treatment done and to answer any of your questions. Whitening is not for everyone and the amount your teeth are able to whiten is totally dependent on your teeth. See FAQ’S for more info and commonly asked questions.
Once that is complete the session is almost ready to begin, but first I will provide you with a finger wipe to give your teeth a quick cleanse, followed by some floss to remove any excess plaque from between the teeth which may inhibit the whitening agent from penetrating your teeth.
Now your session is ready to start. This is the best part, you are now in relaxation mode. Kick your feet up, listen to a podcast or some music. I will insert the cheek retractors at this time, the whitening gel will be applied and the light will be placed over the gel for the selected amount of time. Depending on which session you chose there may be multiple applications of the gel during your session to achieve the optimal results. A pair of blue light blocking sunglasses will be provided during your session to protect your eyes from the bright light.
