Whitening techniques can be broadly split into 3 groups:
A whitening gel is placed in a custom made tray which is worn for about an hour a day for a minimum of 10 days.
Power Whitening is undertaken in the practice. Your lips and gums are protected and a whitening gel applied to your teeth for about an hour. A significant change will be achieved although the patient has less control over the degree of change.
A combination of Power Whitening to start followed by At Home Whitening will make the most significant change to the whiteness of your teeth.
At Home Whitening offers the easiest and cheapest way of "Topping Up" the whitening in the future should you feel the need. Perhaps for that special occasion!
