Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental work that improves the appearance as well as function of a person's teeth. Some common cosmetic procedures include whitening, veneers, crowns, bridges, implants, bonding, gum recession, and straightening teeth.
Whitening or bleaching involves procedures to lighten the color of a patient's teeth. This can be done in the office or a patient can do this at home. The in-office technique involves three 15 minute sessions done while the lips, cheeks, and gums are protected. The take home technique involves making custom bleaching trays that the patient can place the bleaching gel into and bleach at his or her convenience.
