Hi, my name is Dr. Shane Methal, here at Greene Street Dental in SoHo, New York. I've been in private practice both in Maryland and consequently back in New York for the last 17 years. My office website is www.greenestreetdental.com, that's green with an "e" at the end, and today I'm going to be talking about teeth and dentistry.
Affordable teeth whitening procedures. They can include something as simple as an over the counter rinse, gel, or even a pen to something that involves a tray that fits on your teeth that you put bleaching gel into. The over-the-counter options tend to have a lower concentration of what a dentist would prescribe, but tend to be a safe, economical, and viable option for those seeking a slight improvement in their smile. Keep in mind over-the-counter products tend to remove external stain better than internal stain and will not affect any existing dental work. Other alternatives include something that a dentist would prescribe, also using a much more accurately custom-fitted tray, with a bleaching gel, and sometimes even using a light activated or laser bleaching system.
