Professional whitening can be done in an hour. The procedure involves application of a tooth whitening gel that contains between 25% to 40% hydrogen peroxide, and then aiming a special heating lamp at your teeth for three 20-minute intervals, with reapplication of the gel between intervals. This procedure can lighten your teeth up to 3 shades lighter.
