Professional Teeth Whitening In Port Washington
If you’re confident, you smile more. If you smile more, you feel more confident. But what if you don’t want to flash your smile because you’re embarrassed by yellow teeth?
Sometimes a new smile emerges from the simplest steps. Teeth whitening removes years of dingy stains from your teeth. Coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, and chocolate dull white enamel surfaces. A brilliant boost along with some gentle polishing and reshaping of chipped, uneven edges can create an easy transformation. Simple and safe, most patients don’t realize how much discoloration embeds into their teeth until they see a new shine emerge.
Numerous whitening products crowd supermarket shelves. While we don’t discourage these methods, you may want to consider the advantages of professional whitening:
Customized system: We make trays that fit your teeth like a comfortable glove. Flexible, thin plastic follows the alignment of your teeth allowing the whitening gel to contact evenly all tooth surfaces. This means consistent whitening with less overflow of the gel onto your gums.
Controlled gel formulas: We use the highest quality whitening formulas available for safety and consistency: professional strength with careful quality control from known sources. Beware of temperature-sensitive gels stored in uncontrolled environments or made in an unknown setting.
Sensitivity management: You may experience temporary sensitivity in your teeth while whitening. We have specific strategies for you to use and will customize the product and method to help you have a comfortable and safe whitening experience.
Long-term results: Buying a box of whitening strips every few months adds up. With one set of custom trays, you’ll have a system that should fit for years. A simple refill syringe of gel picked up occasionally from our office allows you to keep your smile fresh for years to come.

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

Is teeth whitening safe?
In general teeth whitening is considered to be safe. Professional teeth whitening treatments are the safest option for your teeth. If you are using at-home teeth whitening solutions, it’s important to be careful not to overdo it. For abrasive whiteners, it’s important to not use them too often or too aggressively as this can damage your enamel. If using chemical whiteners, use strips that have a lower concentration of the chemical, and don’t leave them on for too long. This can cause tooth sensitivity and discomfort in the gums.
How is professional teeth whitening performed?
Our office currently offers two different types of professional whitening services: in-office and custom-made trays.
- In-office. These procedures start by covering up vulnerable areas inside the mouth, including the lips and gums, to prevent exposure to the peroxide. Then, we apply a high-concentrate hydrogen peroxide gel directly to the teeth and activate it. You will rest comfortably for a short time until the gel does its work. Then we remove the coverings and rinse the gel away.
- Custom-made trays. We will take a custom mold of your teeth to make clear trays that you take home, along with a whitening gel. These trays will help minimize the risk of whitening gel affecting your gums or mouth and you can whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is place the whitening gel inside the trays and place the trays in your mouth.
