If you live in Little Falls or the surrounding communities, you can benefit from our Little Falls teeth whitening services. At Gregory S. Liss DDS, we are known for improving the appearance of our patients’ smiles. Our natural teeth are meant to be white, bright, and attractive. But over the years, the color of our teeth become dull and discolored. The reason? Wear and tear, and because certain foods and beverages have stained our teeth. The truth is, over-the-counter whitening pastes, rinses, strips and other home remedies can only do so much. To get a truly brighter, whiter smile, you’ll need teeth whitening in Little Falls at Gregory S. Liss, DDS. We often recommend teeth bleaching treatments because it is by far the easiest way to transform your smile. Cosmetic dentistry patients who have come to us with the same problem, walk out later feeling like a million bucks because their smiles have been restored!
Types Of Whitening
There are several types of teeth bleaching that you can try. People typically start by using whitening toothpaste at home. This can help to brighten your teeth but is typically not enough to actually whiten them. We recommend toothpaste as part of an overall teeth whitening treatment but not by itself. After professional whitening, the toothpaste can help your teeth stay bright.
Many people may try over the counter solutions like whitening trays or strips. These treatments work but not as well as professional solutions. As with most things, what you buy in the store is simply not as strong as what you can get from a medical professional. Additionally, store bought whitening trays are designed to fit everyone’s teeth, not your teeth specifically. This means that they can become loose, and the solution can leak, leading to gum irritation.
We recommend that people in Little Falls schedule an appointment with our experienced dental team instead. Our professional tooth whitening solutions can transform the appearance of your teeth in a dynamic way. This is partially due to the strength of the solution that we use. Professional grade whitening gel can whiten teeth by eight shades or more vs. around two shades with store bought solutions. If you are looking for immediate and dramatic results, in-office whitening is a far better option.
Our Little Falls Teeth Whitening Options
There are two types of professional whitening: in-office whitening and take-home whitening kits. Both options have advantages, so it’s up to you to decide which one seems right for you.
In Office Whitening
For a brighter, whiter smile in about an hour, Dr. Liss offers Opalescence, a chemically activated whitening treatment performed in our office. Safe and effective, Opalescence whitens your teeth without heat or ultraviolet rays associated with other whitening methods. Better yet, Opalescence contains potassium nitrate and fluoride, which help to improve oral health by strengthening enamel, decreasing sensitivity and offering increased cavity prevention.
If you prefer to whiten at your convenience, Dr. Liss also offers Opalescence tray whitening. Trays will be custom-made for your teeth and you will be given prescription level whitening gel. Simply fill the tray with the gel and place on your teeth.
How White Will My Teeth Get With Whitening?
It’s important to note that teeth whitening doesn’t actually change the color of your teeth. Instead, it removes stains on and just below the surface, revealing your original enamel color. This helps your teeth to appear clean and fresh while still looking natural.
