Teeth Whitening Methuen | Albert J. Sandler
It is natural for our teeth to discolor throughout the years due to the foods we eat and the medications we take, and it is also a natural symptom of aging. As our enamel wears down, dentin starts to show through. Dentin is naturally yellow and makes up the core of our teeth and makes our teeth appear yellow over time. Our Methuen teeth whitening helps restore teeth back to a white and bright color using whitening gel and a special laser to activate the bleaching agent.
Methuen Teeth Whitening Methods
We currently offer two methods of Methuen teeth whitening: in-office bleaching and at-home whitening kits. In-office bleaching offers the highest results in the shortest amount of time. Professional bleaching can lift your discoloration by about eight shades in as little as an hour. Using a highly-concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel, Dr. Sandler will bleach the discoloration from your teeth. A special LED light will help activate the bleaching agent in the whitening gel and instantly update your smile.
The second method is an at-home whitening kit. The kit contains whitening gel and two whitening trays to wear every night for about two weeks. Over the course of treatment, your teeth will gradually lighten by about four shades. This method for teeth whitening is best suited for a smile that only needs some slight updating. For a more drastic change, consult with Dr. Sandler to learn about alternative cosmetic options.
There are some risks associated with teeth whitening, but they are very mild and can be managed. The most common symptom of teeth whitening is tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is possible due to the use of chemicals on your tooth’s enamel. However, this sensitivity will go away after a day or two. If you already suffer from tooth sensitivity prior to treatment, you may want to speak to Dr. Sandler about alternative cosmetic options that may be better suited to your needs.
