Teeth Whitening

All About Teeth Whitening.  Essence MediSpa does teeth whitening in New Paltz and Highland.

Teeth–they are the very first feature that most of us notice on a person’s face. They come in all shapes and sizes and sometimes even…colors? Unfortunately, over time our teeth can become yellowed from smoking or drinking acidic liquids like tea and red wine. For some of us, the enamel on our teeth is just simply aging and they begin to turn yellow. So what can we do about it? Teeth whitening is a very safe procedure that can be done at home or with a professional. 

How Does Home Whitening Differ From Professional Whitening?

One of the differences between the two methods is that over-the-counter products are much less concentrated than professional products. Therefore, they take several applications over an extended period of time. Professional products take much less time to get more effective results. A professional will also make sure that no tooth is mistakenly missed making sure you get successful long-lasting results.

Home whitening is typically cheaper than whitening done in an office. So if you are looking to save money, then it’s worth considering an at-home product.

Is it Risky?

The risks of whitening are fairly minimal. Side effects include gum irritation and tooth sensitivity, but these typically subside within a few days of completing treatment. A professional treatment can help you avoid unwanted side effects. Deemed safe by the American Dental Association, the bleach used in the products will not harm the mineral structure of your teeth. However, this doesn’t mean that teeth whitening won’t damage teeth if used too frequently or improperly.
