Tooth whitening is a bleaching process that reverses discolorations of enamel (the outside layer of tooth structure) to create a whiter, brighter appearance. No natural tooth structure is lost, and no anesthetic is required. Depending on your situation, Dr. Geare may choose to [whiten in the office or provide trays for you to use at home, under their professional supervision.]
Your dentist will insert a custom appliance containing tooth-whitening solution. You must wear this appliance for a period of days or weeks, depending on the level of discoloration. In many cases, nighttime application alone is sufficient to achieve the results you desire.
