What is Professional Teeth Whitening At Home ?

Also known as “tray bleaching,” at-home professional teeth whitening is one of the most popular methods of achieving a brighter smile. Professional at-home teeth whitening requires custom-made trays, and professionally dispensed teeth whitening gel you can only purchase through a licensed dentist. This method usually costs around £250 – £350, and whitens your teeth about 6-8 shades. [1]

The whitening gel is placed in custom-fitted trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals enter the tooth to naturally whiten the stains. Unlike strips, this process whitens all your teeth and provides maximum comfort with less sensitivity and gum irritation.
