Tobacco use, foods and drinks, medications, and even aging can eventually lead to yellowing of teeth. Unless a systemic disease or underlying factors are involved, teeth whitening can help to lighten those yellow teeth up to eight shades. It is done either in the dental office or at home as per the patient's choice. Before choosing your preferred method, Dr. David Fantuzzo, Dr. Jonathan Carey, and Dr. Jennifer Kopacz from Bayview Smiles recommend you talk to your dentist in Webster, NY, regarding the teeth whitening method that suits you the best.
Teeth Whitening in Webster, NY
During teeth bleaching, a whitening gel is applied to the teeth and left for the desired period. The gel can irritate gums and oral tissues. The dentist covers gums and tooth roots to prevent any burns from the whitening agent before applying the gel. Teeth whitening in Webster, NY, requires a careful evaluation of the patient's teeth before bleaching to find out which method will be effective. At-home teeth whitening requires you to load the customized trays made at the dental lab and place them over the teeth for about an hour. This procedure needs to be done multiple times. The whitening takes time whereas in the dental office it is visible in a single visit. The strength of the whitening gel is less compared to the one used in the dental office. The results of in-office bleach last longer as there is deeper action of the gel on the teeth.
If you are unsure, it is always better to let trained hands do the procedure for you in the dental office.
