In Office Bleaching, offered by Dr. J. Keith Smith

Our Teeth can often discolor due to normal eating and drinking. Over the years they can become a duller almost yellowish color. To get your teeth back to a shiny white color Dr. J. Keith Smith offers In- Office Bleaching. Bleaching a tooth will often get the color to be brighter then the natural color.


In-office bleaching often uses a light-cured protective layer; this is carefully painted onto the gums and papilla. The papilla is the tips of the gums between the teeth. The layer is used to reduce the risk of chemical burns to the soft tissues around the teeth. The agent used to bleach the teeth is one of two components. It is either carbamide peroxide which breaks down in the mouth and forms hydrogen peroxide, or the agent is hydrogen peroxide itself. The gel typically will contain between 10% and 44% carbamide peroxide and is equal to 3% to16% hydrogen peroxide.
