Dr. Roger Curtiss has extensive training in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Today modern techniques and dental procedures can even create a new smile that looks completely natural. Teeth whitening is just one of the many ways your smile can look brighter, and it has become very popular among our Northport cosmetic dental patients. Teeth whitening can drastically improve you self confidence. Before you choose which teeth whitening option to use, you should know what the differences are.
Peroxide is the active ingredient that bleaches your enamel. The stronger the peroxide, the better results you will see. In-office bleaching offers great results. It is expensive, but quick and effective. Teeth whitening trays and gels are effective, but take a longer time to see results. If you choose the teeth whitening kit from your dentist, you will see better results, than if you purchase it over the counter. In addition tooth whitening trays from your dentist are generally custom fit to your teeth. Although results take a longer time than in office bleaching, ultimately the result will be brighter teeth.
At our Northport cosmetic dentist office we believe the at home teeth whitening kits are the best. Our at home teeth whitening kits provide a high percent of peroxide, and it is less expensive than in office bleaching. If you would like over the counter teeth whitening options, teeth whitening strips of whitening toothpaste are good alternatives but will produce less satisfying results.
