Years of drinking coffee, tea, soda, or red wine, as well as smoking, can darken your teeth. LivingArt Dentistry’ whitening service in New York City and Cobble Hill is both easy and non-invasive, and can brighten your teeth in a single, one-hour treatment.
Your whitening can be completed in one visit
We will begin by applying a gum protection, to ensure your gums will be comfortable. A hydrogen peroxide solution gel will be carefully and evenly applied to your teeth. The solution will be left on the teeth for 20 minute intervals and then washed away. Usually after two intervals of 20 minutes your teeth will have lifted three-four levels of on the shade guide! A fourth interval could be done if necessary.
A relief gel will be applied to your teeth and Dr. Levingart will review with you what food and beverages to stay away from for the next few days…including coffee, but just temporarily!
Brief sensitivity will occur to even the most non-sensitive people, but will not last long. Brushing with toothpastes like Sensodyne will help, as well as staying away from foods at both extremes in temperatures for the next day or two.
