Teeth Whitening

How does teeth whitening work?

Professionally supervised teeth-whitening treatments are the most effective ways to brighten your smile while protecting your gums and decreasing your risk of tooth sensitivity. The treatment involves applying a professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth.

This chemical solution penetrates through the surface level of your teeth and whitens from the deepest layers. Your professional teeth-whitening treatment may be combined with a specialized LED light to help the clinical-grade bleaching solution penetrate deeper and be even more effective.

What happens during a teeth-whitening treatment?

At High Line Dentistry, your teeth-whitening treatment is entirely comfortable and relaxing. Dr. Starkman starts by placing a cheek extractor in your mouth to keep your delicate inner cheek and lip skin away from the harsh bleaching agents.

The next step involves painting the whitening solution onto the outer surface of your teeth, one by one. Depending on your specific treatment plan, Dr. Starkman may expose your teeth to a specialized light during your session.

After about an hour, the final step involves rinsing out your mouth and ensuring all of the whitening chemicals are removed. Your results are immediate and you leave High Line Dentistry with a whiter smile.

Is teeth whitening permanent?

No. Due to the natural effects of aging and ongoing stains from the foods and drinks you consume each day, your teeth continue to yellow gradually. Most professional teeth-whitening treatments provide optimal results for anywhere from 6-24 months.

At High Line Dentistry, you can get a premium take-home whitening kit that helps your professional teeth-whitening results last as long as possible. Dr. Starkman simply takes molds of your teeth and creates two thin, flexible plastic trays.

She provides you with a clinical-grade bleaching agent that you place in the trays each time you want to whiten your teeth at home. Take-home teeth whitening packages are often used in addition to professional teeth-whitening treatments, although you can certainly opt for the home package by itself.
