The gel is placed within the whitening device and the device is placed on the teeth for ten minutes.
The dentist or hygienist will check whitening progress as you go along, your dental professional will be present throughout the entire procedure with you.
The gel is removed and then more gel is applied for another ten minutes.
The gel is again removed and then more gel is applied for an additional ten minutes.
The final gel application is inserted into the device and is activated until complete.
The mouth is rinsed and the new tooth color is measured immediately.
The teeth may look incredibly white immediately after treatment due to mild dehydration. The actual color of
teeth will become apparent when the teeth have had 48 hours to re-hydrate.
