The dentist isolates and protects your lips, gums, and inside lining of your mouth. Next, a powerful bleaching agent is applied to the teeth. Finally, a powerful light source is applied which completes the procedure by activating the bleaching agent.One can choose to do all their whitening via this method using several appointments or use the power system to simply accelerate the process in the beginning.
