At-home teeth whitening treatments typically involve wearing custom-made trays filled with a whitening gel for several hours each day for several weeks.
- Teeth whitening for sensitive teeth: There are a number of teeth whitening treatments available that are specifically designed for people with sensitive teeth. These treatments typically use a milder whitening gel and/or a shorter treatment time.
