Types of bleaching treatments:

There are mainly two types of professional teeth whitening treatment options:

  • Take home bleaching kits
    Teeth Whitening

    They contain peroxide based bleaching agents ( either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide ) in a concentration of 3% to 20%. If you decide to go for home whitening procedures, it is imperative that you discuss with your dentist first. This becomes even more important when you have problems like sensitive teeth or large dental fillings. You should also consider a dental visit if you have only a single discoloured tooth.(In that case you might require a root canal treatment.

    Rather than over the counter gels and whitening toothpaste, a better option is getting a custom made tray for your mouth which will cover only those areas which needs bleaching. This will reduce the chances of getting a burn on your gums.

    The procedure includes loading the tray with the peroxide base paste and placing it over teeth for one to several hours a day for up to 4 weeks depending upon the severity of stains.


  • In Office bleaching

    In office bleaching systems are also based on peroxides but have a higher concentration ranging from 15% to 43%. Higher the concentration, faster are the results. So if you want a faster option, bleaching done by us at our clinic is the right choice for you.

    In office bleach can either be a single visit procedure or may require several clinic visits. We use heat, light or a combination of two to activate the agent and give you faster results. You can expect three to eight shades brighter teeth with our bleaching procedures.
