As our enamel wears down through the years, the shade of our teeth can change. From our diets to our bad habits, to the actual wearing down of the enamel- which allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through- this is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Teeth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white shade through the use of a whitening agent.
Teeth whitening methods:
There are two popular teeth whitening options available through your Bayside NY dentist at Northern Plaza Dental Care. The first, in-office teeth whitening, produces a significant color change in your teeth in a short amount of time, approximately an hour. The procedure is done at our Bayside, Queens dental office by applying a high-concentration peroxide gel on the teeth after the soft tissues have been protected and isolated.
The second method involves the use of take-home whitening kits. These whitening kits are purchased from Dr. Davantzis for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus, the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually the trays are worn an hour a day for a few days until the desired shade is achieved. The best thing about the trays is that they can be used again and again for subsequent tooth whitening needs.
