Usually the bleaching process starts with tooth whitening gel. The gel is applied on the teeth to get the desired results. The whitening effects are much more effective on front teeth, since these are the teeth that people look at first. It works best on people whose teeth are yellow and not gray in color.
After applying the gel, the bleaching agent is applied, followed by a heat lamp for 5-10 minutes. The device that is used is different for every person, and varies from person to person.
The bleaching gel can be purchased at local stores and also online. The online sites may require a shipping charge, but the local stores often give the bleaching agent free of charge. It only needs to be applied to your teeth for about 10 minutes.
After applying the gel, the laser light is turned on for another 10 minutes. This time will be added to the 10 minutes already spent on the tooth whitening process. The heat lamp will be turned on for another 2 minutes. The aim of the procedure is to have a complete whitening process to get a bright white smile. It can take days to get the desired results.
