Professional whitening ‘can lighten teeth significantly’
Professional teeth whitening procedures can improve the appearance of teeth in less than an hour, according to one expert.
Cosmetic dentistry expert Jennifer Jablow described how compared to over-the-counter products, bleaching treatments performed at dental practices can be more successful, Elle magazine reports.
Depending on how porous an individual’s teeth are they could see a noticeable improvement in the brightness of their smile, she explained.
Ms Jablow said: “With a professional treatment, you’ll be able to get your teeth eight to 10 shades whiter.”
She described how a dentist will apply the gel over three sessions that last 15 minutes each and then use a UV light to activate the formula, meaning patients will be able to see a difference after 45 minutes.
A Canadian laser teeth whitening process, which targets each tooth individually, was recently suggested by the Daily Mail as an affective way to improve oral appearance.
