Bleaching (also referred to as whitening):

Bleaching products work with a chemical called peroxide and can brighten your teeth several shades.

Another process employs the use of a special gel that is placed inside a flexible device you wear around your teeth for a certain period of time. After you remove the device, you must use a second bleaching agent, followed by a special light to activate the chemical action.

Mildly stained teeth usually only require one session of bleaching.

At Northland Dental Centre we offer ZOOM! whitening.  This is an in-office one visit procedure.  It takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete the treatment in which your teeth are 2-6 shades lighter (depending on the shade you are starting off with).  Whitening procedures can be done of young and adults and up.  It is not recommended for children.
