What should I expect when I get teeth whitening in Lansing?

Whitening sessions are simple, safe and effective for getting a whiter smile. When you come in for your treatment we will use a separator to keep lips and sensitive tissue away from the bleaching gel. Then we will apply a layer of whitening gel to the aesthetic zone of your smile (the teeth that are visible) and direct an activating laser at your teeth to activate the gel. After 15 minutes, we will remove the gel, reapply a fresh layer and reactivate it. One whitening session usually performs two or three different applications.
