At-Home Teeth Whitening
Corbin Dental in Bayside, NY offers a take-home teeth whitening kit if you would prefer to whiten your teeth from the comforts of home. During brief in-office appointment, your dentist will take dental impressions to create your trays. Your custom fit trays will fit perfectly against your teeth, much like a mouth piece, to allow for even whitening and less sensitivity. We will give you specific directions on how apply the bleaching agent and wear the bleaching trays. You can expect gradual and natural-looking results over a brief period of about one to two weeks.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening will give you instant results but is often more expensive than professional at-home whitening. Corbin Dental in Bayside, NY utilizes the ZOOM! teeth whitening treatment. ZOOM! teeth whitening is a dentist-administered treatment that produces the fastest and safest results. It uses a thicker peroxide gel that allows for a more controllable application and a desensitizer to reduce tooth sensitivity. We recommend a consultation to determine if this is the right treatment for tooth staining or discoloration.
About ZOOM! Teeth Whitening
The ZOOM! teeth whitening treatment should only take about an hour and a half. Your Bayside, NY dentist will first clean your teeth to remove any plaque, tartar, and debris to ensure better results. After completely exposing your teeth, your dentist will apply the whitening gel evenly over the surface of your teeth. A special blue light is positioned to shine directly on your teeth to break up stains and discoloration. The process will be repeated about three times for fifteen minutes. Your teeth will be up to 8 shades brighter once the treatment is complete.
