At home bleaching patient will receive custom-made trays along with prescribed carbamide peroxide gels from the dentist. Apply the trays overnight ( at least 6 hours each time ) for 6 to 8 weeks during sleep.
2. In-Office Bleaching
This method has become the most popular these days becuase it is done at the dental office within 1 - 2 hours, using light combination with bleaching agent. Most patients find it this very convenient and less time-consuming than 'at home bleaching' procedure.
