What's Involved ?
All dental whitening involves the application of a whitening agent to the teeth. Until recently, the whitening agent was applied via soft trays (custom designed by a dentist, or bought in over-the-counter kits) that are worn overnight or during the day for two to three weeks. But now dentists are offering a new way to whiten teeth.
For a power-whitening treatment, your dentist first protects your gums, and then applies a concentrated whitening agent. Finally, the whitening agent is activated by directing a high-intensity light or laser on your teeth. The entire process takes only one or two hours. Estimated cost is $600 to $1200 for all of your teeth.
