Teeth whitening processes were designed to increase the brightness of your smile; simply stated – improving facial aesthetics by making your teeth whiter.

The degree of whiteness is determined by the number of gel applications. Programmed visits to your dentist are essential for the process to be carried out properly so as to not exceed the limits set by your attending professional and avoid affecting the health of your teeth.
The process can be performed in the office with whitening gel or at home with the use of a dental tray and whitening gel.

The duration of whitening treatments will depend on the daily habits of each patient, such as the use of tobacco products, drinking a lot of coffee and tea, soft drinks, sugar-laden foods and of course, daily oral hygiene practices.
