Teeth Whitening - Dr. Michael Dagostino, D.D.S.
Many patients ask me about the teeth whitening, or bleaching process. The
technique our office uses is safe and extremely effective. At the initial visit
we take upper and lower impressions of your teeth. The second visit we perform
“power bleach” which is done with an extremely concentrated carbamide
peroxide, this jumpstarts the process. At the end of the visit we provide the
patient with their custom made trays and home bleaching gel. We instruct our
patients to use the gel for a minimum of one hour per day for the next 30 days.
We schedule the patients for a second power bleach approximately 30 days after
the initial appointment. Most patients have achieved the desired results at the
end of their second appointment. We then advise the patient to perform a one
hour maintenance bleaching once a month to retain those results. Negative side
effects are rare but occasionally patients will complain of increased
sensitivity of their teeth. We advise them to call us for a no-charge fluoride
treatment which generally will relieve the symptoms. The cost of the procedure
is down to $300.00, and includes no-charge bleach for patients in our records. If you,
or a loved one, is considering bleaching please call our office for an
