Professional Teeth Whitening and Dental Bonding


According to your cosmetic dentist in East Greenbush, professional Teeth Whitening is the fastest way to a beautiful smile. If your teeth and gums are healthy enough, you can lighten your teeth up 6 to 10 shades.

With custom-made take home whitening trays, you will have a dazzling smile in as little as two weeks using dental grade whitening products that are safer than whiteners are from your local pharmacy.

Over the Counter Products

Dr. J. Craig Alexander explains that over the counter whitening products are over used. So much so, they cause sensitivity. Because prescription tooth whiteners are monitored you will not use too much too often. You will also see better results helping you resist the temptation to wear your aligners too long or too often.

Avoid strips, polishes, pastes, rinses, gels and especially those one size fits all trays that may fit everyone but could cause serious gum sensitivity.

The most effective professional teeth whitening offers less sensitivity and dramatic results. Your cosmetic dentist in New York customizes your dental grade plastic aligners sending you home with prescription grade hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient, and instructions for use.

Results in Less than a Month

While most patients see results in about 21 days, others will see them in 14. Some patients don’t report any change for about 30 days. It really depends on the patient.

You’ll wear your trays and whitening gel for at least 30 minutes or at night depending on Dr. Alexander’s instructions.

Professional teeth whitening gives you amazing results. Just imagine how great your smile will look six to ten shades lighter. The at home whitening treatment in New York is the healthy and safe way to a beautiful white smile.

Tooth Whitening For Most but Not All

It’s important to note that whitening won’t work for everyone. People who have restored teeth including veneers, crowns, fillings, and dental implants will not see results. Severe interior staining doesn’t always see results with professional teeth whitening either.

If you have old restorations that are stained and chipped or teeth that cannot be whitened with custom made whitening trays talk to Dr. Alexander about cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dental bonding is a wonderful alternative that can change the color and appearance of your teeth.

What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Your East Greenbush dentist explains that cosmetic dental bonding is used to repair cracks and chips and to cover stains. Bonding, which is often used with enamel shaping for a perfect result, is also used for inlays onlays and small fillings at the fronts of teeth.

The resin used by Dr. Alexander is perfectly matched to the rest of your smile. Best of all, bonding takes a single dental appointment.
