Are your teeth discolored? Do you crave to have your pearly whites be… pearly white? We are proud to provide take-home teeth whitening in Rego Park, New York. Ask Dr. Eftihia Thomopoulos if our take-home teeth whitening kit is for you today.
The take-home teeth whitening kit uses a tray that is custom fitted by our dentist. This guard-like tray is filled with a peroxide-based bleaching gel or paste and is placed over the teeth. Because the whitening process is overseen by Dr. Eftihia Thomopoulos, a stronger bleaching solution can be used than what is found in over-the-counter home whitening kits. The tray should be worn from a couple of hours a day to every night for up to four weeks, as recommended by your dentist. Be aware that bleaching will not whiten porcelain crowns or composite bondings.
To maintain the results of take-home teeth whitening, be sure to brush and floss daily. We also recommend that you avoid acidic and tannin-rich foods and beverages, including:
- Black tea and coffee
- White and red wine
- Sports drinks
- Carbonated beverages
- Berries and other strongly colored foods
