Teeth Whitening in Bainbridge

Brightening Smiles throughout Chenango, Delaware, Otsego & Broome Counties

Studies have repeatedly shown that the first place people look when meeting someone new is at their teeth, even more so than their eyes. Having a bright, white smile is one of the simplest but most important ways of making a good first impression, whether at a job interview or going out on a date. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always hand us a white palate on a shiny plate. Sometimes our teeth can be dim or discolored due to genetics, or even due to habits we’ve had to take on to deal with life circumstances, such as drinking caffeine to stay alert for stressful jobs or academic careers.

At Michelle A. Gifford DDS, PLLC, however, we do not believe in simply accepting the hand (or in this case, teeth) that fate has dealt us. With our professional teeth whitening services in Bainbridge, you too can show off a fantastic, beaming smile.

Call us today at (607) 225-2104 to find out how our whitening services can brighten your day. We serve clients in Chenango, Delaware, Otsego & Broome Counties.

Types of Teeth Whitening Services

While teeth enamel is very strong, over time it will gradually break down due to daily wear, tear, and grinding of food. This leads them to appear yellow, rather than their natural, original white color. Certain substances like caffeine or tobacco can also add to staining and discoloration. If simply using a normal whitening toothpaste, which comes at a very low concentration, has not been working for you, it is time to look into alternative, powerful methods.

There are two primary types of professional teeth whitening treatments, including:

  • In-office teeth peroxide treatments – This is the most potent way to deal with tough discoloration on your teeth. By using a powerful gel of peroxide much stronger than normal over-the-counter toothpastes, Dr. Gifford can directly target specific stains and whiten your teeth much more quickly and effectively. These treatments are very durable and can last about a year or even more if you take care of your teeth well.
  • Take-home whitening strip kits – This method is typically used for less extreme discoloration, or in combination with in-office treatments. This form of whitening usually can take a few days or even a couple of weeks to work, and they last for about four months.

Teeth Whitening Safety

You may be wondering if teeth whitening is safe, since the term “bleaching” is associated with harsh chemicals that often strip our hair and skin of their natural properties. However, when it comes to whitening performed by our dentist, these procedures are actually safer for your teeth. The bleaching agent used at our firm includes buffers that protect your tooth enamel from further damage and decay.

Flexible Plans

Depending on your personal situation, Dr. Gifford can directly work with you on making a plan that best fits your lifestyle, time, and income. Whether you decide on a single in-office treatment, a couple weeks of take-home kits, or a combination of both, our dental team will support you in finding the most optimum solution for your teeth whitening needs in Bainbridge.
