Throughout the years there have been products promising whiter teeth, such as a certain tooth paste that is best at removing the toughest stains to whitening strips sold over the counter in most stores. However, thanks to improvements in medical technology, the methods now used to whiten teeth are much more successful than ever before and can have additional benefits that are more than just cosmetic.
Whitening Teeth and The Different Approaches Available.
Teeth Cleaning: This is the simplest approach to whitening teeth. A professional cleaning will remove plaque and tartar from the teeth, revealing a brighter smile. Every patient should have their teeth cleaned at least once a year to prevent plaque buildup and the gum disease it may cause.
Teeth whitening products: There are treatments available for Teeth Whitening in Staten Island at Drs. Galligan and Villa Dental Studio including the KöR whitening system which has been met with great success. This is much more effective than over the counter products that use a bleaching agent that may bother your gums when applying them yourself. This system will be discussed with you by the Doctors to make sure you are a good candidate for this treatment.
Once your teeth are whiter, keeping that white smile will be ensured by improving your oral hygiene habits. In the past we have seen patients that normally ignore these good dental habits become much more responsible with their dental hygiene after getting their teeth whitened. Allow us to do the same for you by contacting Drs. Galligan and Villa Dental Studio and setting up a teeth whitening consultation.
