The biggest problem with teeth whitening tends to be tooth sensitivity. This is especially true if you attempt to whiten yourself using store-bought products.
If you want to avoid sensitivity, your best bet is to rely on the professionals to get the job done safely. While it might seem like too big of an investment, consider the fact that you can spend a lot of money on whitening products at your drug store. And even if you follow the instructions to the letter, you still won't get the bright, dramatic results you're looking for.
At Northport Family Dental, we have found our patients get the best results with take-home whitening. Customized trays are designed to cover all surfaces of your teeth for consistent results. Your hygienist will show you how to place the whitening gel in the trays in a way that helps prevent it from seeping out and irritating tender gum tissue.
For your peace of mind, it's also comforting to know that you have an experienced professional to turn to if a problem develops. If you are thinking about whitening your teeth, please call our office. We'll help you decide if whitening is right for you or if there's another cosmetic dentistry service at our Northport, NY dental office that would better suit your needs.
