Over time, our teeth can discolor from dietary choices and the wearing down of the enamel. As the protective outer layer of our teeth fades away, dentin, a yellow substance in the core of our teeth can show through. Teeth whitening can help address multiple causes of teeth discoloration by restoring their amazing white tone using bleach.
Teeth whitening methods:
Dr. Comisi and our Ithaca cosmetic dental office offer two popular choices for teeth whitening.
For our patients who prefer to have their whitening done in-office, we can apply a high concentration peroxide gel to the teeth that can change your shade for the better usually within an hour.
For those patients who do not mind doing a little bit themselves, we also offer take-home whitening kits. These kits have a stronger level of the gel compared to the over-the-counter strips, but not as powerful as our in-office methods. Because of the strength, the gel can be applied for longer periods of time, usually being worn a couple hours a day or overnight a few days or weeks.
