Preparing a bleach tray takes two visits. At the first visit an impression is taken so that a custom bleach tray can be made. About a week later, at the second visit, the bleach tray and bleaching material is given to the patient. At home the patient puts a small amount of the bleaching material in the tray and wears the tray for several hours each day. The length of the bleaching process depends on the patient’s goals and how quickly results can be seen. It will usually take between 2 to 6 weeks. The longer it is worn, the lighter the teeth become.
Veneers can be completed in two appointments. The first appointment involves preparing the tooth by smoothing the front of the selected teeth. Then an impression is taken. The second appointment is usually about two weeks later. The veneers are tried in and then cemented in with a cement that is cured by a harmless, high-intensity light. The excess cement is removed and the bite checked. Then you’re off with your beautiful new smile.
