We have compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions we receive about teeth whitening, but feel free to call us with more of your own.
How long does teeth whitening take?
Beyond Dentistry Laser Center is proud to use the GLO Science Professional Teeth Whitening System to expedite the process and reduce the time you must devote in the office.
Other methods may force you to make several trips to their facility to whiten your teeth and over-the-counter solutions require you to make a mess at home for several weeks to achieve results, and they are very weak. The award-winning GLO approach uses LED light to accelerate the whitening gel, resulting in a process that takes only 40 minutes. We can complete the first session at our office in Brooklyn, and the rest can be done from the comfort of your home.
Why should I go to the dentist for teeth whitening?
There are many benefits to going to a professional for teeth whitening. Teeth whitening methods that you can find at your local store use strips or some type of ointment. These methods use low concentrated chemicals that can have lower success rates when compared to professional teeth whitening. By choosing a professional you can gain confidence in the fact that you will be spending your money towards a solution that will get your teeth looking their best in less time.
When will I see results?
The number of sessions it will take to achieve the results you want will depend on the status of your teeth when we begin. Over time, teeth yellow as a result of eating habits, oral hygiene practices, and age. You will begin seeing results after the first session.
How much whiter will my teeth be?
This depends on your starting shade, but Beyond Dentistry Laser Center’s innovative approach to teeth whitening will help you achieve the whitest smile possible. The GLO Teeth Whitening System provides various strength levels to combat even the toughest and darkest stains. The success rate of our technique far exceeds that of traditional methods, ensuring you can achieve your desired tooth color quickly and effectively.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
No. The teeth whitening gel we use as part of the GLO system is free of alcohol and carbamide peroxide, which means you will experience no sensitivity during the process. We understand that your teeth may be sensitive from previous, conventional teeth whitening approaches, so our team of dental experts will adjust your gel strength accordingly. The entire process should be pleasant and pain-free.
Does teeth whitening damage teeth?
The GLO Teeth Whitening System protects your teeth. We promise you will not experience damage that has come to be expected from traditional methods. While old treatments used powerful bleaching techniques that stripped enamel from teeth and left them vulnerable to other issues, the system we utilize at Beyond Dentistry Laser Center in Brooklyn keeps enamel intact and protects teeth throughout the process. It is one of the many reasons our patients travel from throughout the country – and even internationally – to have their teeth whitened at our facility.
Does teeth whitening beautify dental restorations?
Teeth whitening can help restore the appearance and shade of false teeth but will not alter the look of dental restorations such as crowns or fillings. However, our comprehensive dental services can help beautify your smile in other ways if you are concerned about the appearance of previous dental work, so ask how we can help during your visit.
Can teeth whitening gel be used on my sensitive teeth?
Yes. There are multiple strength levels of teeth whitening gel that we can use during the GLO process, the strongest of which is 30% hydrogen peroxide. For healthy teeth, we may recommend this gel for fast results. But if your teeth are sensitive from previous teeth whitening attempts or any other reason, we will apply a more diluted formula.
