Most people thrive for a bright white smile. They understand the importance for a great looking smile, as well as, the importance of brushing, flossing, and regular checkups to keep it that way but sometimes they just need a little boost in brightness. There are a variety of teeth whitening Long Island methods to choose from and dependent on your circumstances for wanting or needing that boost can help you choose which method is best for you.
There is in-office treatment and at home treatments. The at home treatments are performed by the individual themselves and can consist of using a professional grade whitening gel or through over the counter teeth whitening products. These products can include gels, strips, and pastes, as well as, mouth washes. An individual can choose to have non-dental bleaching techniques which are done as spas or salons. These methods are broke down into their bleaching concentrations which are as follows:
A low concentration bleaching is the least effective teeth whitening Long Island method. This method of bleaching is done at home with over the counter products such as whitening strips, toothpastes, and so on. The oxidizing agents in these products are quite low but individuals who use them can see results in as little as a few days but many won’t see a recognizable improvement for weeks.
Another at home teeth whitening Long Island treatment is gel bleaching. There are some products on the market that allow for individuals to use a more potent whitening agent which they place in a tray and wear on their teeth for a specific amount of time. There are some teeth whitening Long Island professionals who offer an at home treatment as well. The result for this type of whitening is better than the low concentration but not as good as the high concentration which can only be done in a dental office.
When an individual chooses to have an in office teeth whitening treatment, Dr. Raskin can have their teeth up to 8 shades brighter in as little as an hour. The high concentration whitening gel used in an in office treatment is activated to deeply penetrate the tooth’s dentin to by laser technology.
