Duration of the whitening

The actual whitening is done in one session, depending on how many teeth are to be treated. Depending on the technique, the actual bleaching process takes about 10-15 minutes per tooth. The first results are already visible after the first application. As a rule, however, the session should be repeated for 1-2 weeks in order to achieve optimal and long-lasting results.
If the dental examination and tooth cleaning are carried out directly before the bleaching, the treatment time is extended accordingly. In most cases, however, the dental examination and cleaning are carried out in a dental session one to two days beforehand.
