With our lifestyle of consuming soda, spicy food, coffee, tea, and other items, stains on your teeth are inevitable. There is however, advanced technology that can help reverse these cosmetic features.
Most teeth whitening procedures follow a similar concept, but some are more effective due to the way the whitening material is delivered to the teeth. An additional contributing factor is where the material is concentrated, which is why less powerful over-the-counter systems don’t provide the results patients look for.

A supply of whitening gel is provided to the patient and they wear the tray for a few hours daily. Increased sensitivity is a normal side-effect and will almost always disappear over time.
