Go to the dental care aisle of any grocery store or pharmacy and you're sure to see dozens of whitening toothpastes, gels, and mouthwashes, all claiming to give you a brighter, more beautiful smile. While these products do eventually whiten your smile, only an in-office dental whitening treatment by Dr. Eugene Porcelli at Garden City Family Dental in Garden City, New York gives you fast, effective, and lasting results. Below are a few of the reasons why choosing an in-office whitening procedure is the best choice for your appearance, your wallet, and the health of your teeth!
Over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments gradually whiten teeth over several weeks or months of consistent use. This can be frustrating, especially when you have to purchase multiple kits or products. A whitening treatment from your Garden City dentist, however, consists of one 60-minute appointment. That's because all of the products we use are professional-grade and high-quality; the store-bought products are typically less concentrated to save customers money in the short term. Teeth are often five to ten shades whiter in the time it takes for the average lunch break!
Whitening your teeth at home, can take a relatively long time. The treatments must also be continued in order to ensure that your stains don't return. The whitening system that we use at Garden City Family Dental, however, often produces results that last over a year before you'll need another appointment.
Safety and accuracy
Although whitening your teeth at home is considered to be a generally safe treatment, the one-size-fits all appliances often don't distribute the whitening solution evenly. They can also put your gum tissue in contact with the solution, leading to discomfort. With our trained staff in charge of your whitening treatment, your Garden City dentist will make sure your gums are protected and each of your teeth are exposed to the proper amount of solution, ensuring your comfort and satisfaction!
