The gel base is then exposed to bursts of high intensity laser, which works on the mineral accelerant inside the gel. The gel is then converted to oxygen which coats the tooth enamel and gradually penetrates into the teeth. The whole procedure is completed within an hour and the tooth is whitened by about 10 shades.
