What Is Teeth Whitening?Teeth whitening refers to the process of bleaching your teeth to remove stains and discoloration. If you want to brighten your smile,professional teeth whitening is the way to go. It's a cost-effective and convenient process that takes less than an hour. Professional whitening is preferable to over-the-counter options since professional-grade whitening agents have a higher concentration of hydrogen peroxide, making the results more noticeable and long-lasting.
