Hi! My name is Dr. Gordon Rye. I am a dentist in Fairfax, Virginia. We are talking about teeth whitening. And in this clip we are going to talk about in-office power bleaching. In-office power bleaching has a cost range of somewhere between $500 and $1200. In-office bleaching is very safe, it's very fast, and it's one of the most convenient ways to bleach your teeth. In-office power bleaching combines special light with hydrogen peroxide bleaching agents and the process is generally complete in about an hour. The benefits are the speed of the bleaching process and the ease of getting bleaching done. The drawbacks are that it is a moderate cost and in order to maintain the level of bleaching that you achieved and to get an even deeper bleach, many people still have to use an at-home bleaching kit as described in our previous at home bleaching clip. Our next clip is going to be deep bleaching.
