Using Teeth Whitening Strips
for a Brighter Smile
Thanks to innovations in cosmetic dentistry, there are a plethora of teeth whitening options readily available. Some professional teeth whitening products involve trays, retainers, and gels. Others involve trips to a trained cosmetic dentist for hour-long treatments. For patients looking for a convenient yet effective teeth whitening option, Brooklyn cosmetic dentist Dr. Stanislaus offers teeth whitening strips. Best known for their safety, efficacy, and simplicity of use, the results of these teeth whitening strips can be just as impressive as other professional treatments.
What Are Teeth Whitening Strips?
Teeth whitening strips are self adhering strips of plastic that are pre-coated with a small amount of bleaching agent and that are applied primarily to the front-facing surface of a patient’s most visible teeth. Teeth whitening strips are effective, safe, and very convenient. It should be taken into consideration that teeth whitening strips alone are not as immediately effective as other in-office teeth whitening treatments such as laser teeth whitening.
How Do Teeth Whitening Strips Work?
Like any cosmetic dental procedure, treatment starts with a visit to Brooklyn Heights Dental for a consultation with experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Stanislaus. During this initial meeting, our goal is to fully examine your smile and identify any potential health or aesthetic problems that may impact the effectiveness of treatment. If any problems like cavities or gum disease exist, we’ll incorporate treatment into the overall treatment plan to ensure you receive lasting teeth whitening results.
Once we decide that teeth whitening strips are the best way for you to achieve your dream smile, Dr. Stanislaus will provide you with a set as well as directions for use. To get the best results with teeth whitening strips, it is incredibly important that you closely follow all instructions given by Dr. Stanislaus at the office as well as the specific instructions included with the product itself. Some varieties of teeth whitening strips will be worn and then removed from teeth after a given amount of time while other teeth whitening strips will dissolve by themselves while on your teeth.
During the course of teeth whitening treatment, your teeth may feel sensitive. While this is normal, our Brooklyn dentist knows that this can be worrisome and concerning. If you feel that you’ve dealt with tooth sensitivity much longer than expected or if sensitive teeth make it hard to bite or chew, call Dr. Stanislaus and we’ll schedule you for an emergency dental appointment.
