Teeth Whitening Methuen | Albert J. Sandler

Our teeth can discolor through the years as our enamel wears down, the underlying dentin darkens, and food stains our teeth. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin, a yellow color substance that makes the core of our teeth, to show through. This is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Teeth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach.

Teeth whitening methods
There are two popular teeth whitening options available through our Methuen MA dentist office . The first, called DEEP BLEACHING, produces a significant color change in your teeth. It requires meticolously crafted custom bleaching trays which are fabricated in office, to be used at home with a moderate-concentration bleaching gel for two weeks.  The procedure is completed at the dentist's office by applying a high-concentration peroxide gel on the teeth. We have seen fabulous results with minimal sensitivity because this is the only prorietary bleaching gel available with a neutral pH. We have been refining this technique for several years.

The second method, involves the use of take home whitening kits with custom fabricated carrier trays. These whitening kits are purchased from the office of Dr Albert Sandler in Methuen ,MA for use at home. The strength of the gel used in these kits is lower than that used for in-office bleaching, and thus the gel can be applied for longer periods of time. Usually the trays are worn a couple hours a day or overnight for a few days or weeks depending on the product.

Its best to consult your dentist to understand which whitening option is best for you.
