The first method is a DENTAL (IN-OFFICE) Teeth WHITENING

I can inform you that I have firsthand experience. dentists adore patients who want to undergo a teeth-whitening procedure done in their dental office. In the early '90s, there was just one option.

The dentist will make molds from your tooth, then send them to a lab for 5-10 days, and then get your custom-fitted teeth-whitening dental mouthpiece. You would then be in the chair for around 1-2 hours using these dental whitening molds containing peroxide (at very low levels) applied to your gums and teeth.

Today, the most well-known dental office procedure for teeth whitening is known as Laser Bleaching (or Power Bleaching, Argon Bleaching, etc.) is a less time-consuming process. The basic procedure for whitening your teeth involves the application of the gel with a high concentration of peroxide into your teeth. 

During the remainder of the time, you're in a dental chair, your mouth opens while lighting (usually the argon) is reflected onto the teeth whitening gel, which reacts chemically with the peroxide, completing the process of whitening your teeth within the shortest as you can.
