Teeth Whitening is possible with a simple and safe procedure called Dental Bleaching.

What Are The Types Of Bleaching?

Teeth Bleaching can be done in 2 ways:

Office Bleach: It is also called Zoom whitening or power bleaching. It utilizes a high concentration of teeth whitening agent. (25–40% carbamide hydrogen peroxide). Here, the dentist has complete control throughout the procedure and has the ability to stop it when the desired shade/effect is achieved. It usually takes 1 hour to complete.

Home Bleach: This is done by you at home using bleaching material and a special made tray provided by us according to your teeth size and shape. You will see the results in a maximum time of 5-7 nights for home bleaching.
