Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening also known as tooth bleaching is a common procedure in general dentistry but most especially in the field of cosmetic dentistry. At-home whitening is done with bleaching gel which is applied to the teeth using thin guard trays. At-home whitening can also be done by applying small strips that go over the front teeth. Oxidizing agents such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide are used to lighten the shade of the tooth.
