The dentist or hygienist will first apply a protective gel to your lips and gums, followed by the application of the whitening gel to the teeth. The gel (which contains hydrogen peroxide) is then activated by a special LED light. The process varies in length, depending on the depth of the stain and the goal level of whiteness. It can be a little uncomfortable having your mouth open for such a long time, but many patients find listening to music or watching a movie helps to distract them. The upside is that there is usually only one treatment required. Deep staining may require additional treatments.
