Many patients come to the office of Dr. Allan J. Petrisor asking for tooth whitening these days. Here’s an explanation of how we whiten your teeth.
Whitening at Home
Dentist-supervised tooth whitening involves the controlled use of carbamide, or hydrogen peroxide, specific to the needs of each patient. Dr. Petrisor can even provide at-home tooth-whitening treatments.
Before the tooth-whitening treatment, it’s important to clean the teeth, fill any cavities and make sure your gums are healthy. Most of our in-office systems use 15 to 35 percent hydrogen peroxide gels.
