Teeth whitening is extremely popular these days, and there are no shortage of methods available to accomplish it, some more effective than others. Typically, whitening treatments that are over the counter do not offer the kind of results that most of us would like to see. Our Flatlands cosmetic dentist, Dr. Abraham Esses, is happy to be offering laser teeth bleaching as an option. It combines the advantages of providing both effective results and quick results and is a safe, comfortable way to get your teeth whiter and brighter.

For those who are excited by getting more noticeably whiter teeth after just one treatment, laser teeth bleaching by our Flatlands cosmetic dentist may be the ideal way to go. It must be done in our office, however. We do offer at-home teeth whitening for those who prefer that convenience. With laser teeth bleaching, a translucent bleaching gel is applied directly to your teeth. The laser then activates the solution and this results in a much quicker whitening effect as the crystals in the gel absorb the laser’s energy.

So, just how much quicker is it than more traditional teeth whitening methods? Well, the number of sessions required will most certainly depend upon how discolored your teeth are to begin with and how white you want them to get, but most patients see a noticeable difference after just one treatment. This means that even if your teeth are yellow or brown, you can still get them a lot whiter with laser teeth bleaching by our Flatlands cosmetic dentist.

The main drawback to laser teeth bleaching, aside from not being able to do it at home, is that the difference in color will be so quick that it will be obvious to your family, friends, and co-workers. If you would prefer a method that is more gradual so as not to call attention to the fact that you are getting your teeth bleached, this method is not the right one for you. Fortunately, there are others that we offer. The other drawback is that it is a more expensive method than other types of teeth whitening. But deciding the best choice can be done later. Just call us to schedule an appointment with our Flatlands cosmetic dentist so that you can get started on the road to whiter teeth right away.

These days, while lots of people suffering from malocclusions (teeth that aren’t properly aligned) still receive more traditional orthodontic care involving conventional braces, there are alternatives to having conspicuous metal hardware in their mouths for years on end. One of the alternatives our Flatlands general dentists offer at the dental office of Abraham Esses, DDS, is an orthodontic program called, “Invisalign.” Though you’ve probably heard something about this technique from friends or from advertisements, we’d like to tell you about Invisalign’s pros and cons in a little more detail. Like many medical treatments, whether it’s a good option for a particular person all depends on that patient’s unique needs and preferences.

Let’s start off by listing some of Invisalign’s advantages over regular metal braces. First, as you might expect from the name, it’s very hard to tell when people who are undergoing Invisalign therapy. This is because, instead of chunks of metal and strings of wire, Invisalign uses a series of removable retainers that fit discreetly (and more comfortably) over teeth. Only you and our Flatlands general dentists will know that you’re wearing them! Because the retainers are removable, other advantages include enabling wearers to eat and drink what you want, and to brush and floss how they used to.

Unfortunately, however, we here at the Flatlands general dentist practice of Abraham Esses, DDS, have to let you know about a couple of Invisalign’s disadvantages as well. One of the big ones is that the retainers aren’t able to address certain kinds of misalignments as well as braces can, meaning that some folks aren’t able to rely entirely on Invisalign for teeth straightening. The other probably is that, because, retainers can be removed at will, some patients don’t end up wearing them as much as they’re supposed to. This leads to orthodontic treatment that lasts for a lot longer than planned.

Of course, there’s really only one way to find out for sure if Invisalign is a viable option for taking care of your orthodontic needs, and that’s to pay Abraham Esses, DDS, a visit. Dr. Esses is an expert when it comes to getting teeth straightened out, and he’s eager to take a look inside your mouth. Set up an appointment over the phone or over the web today!
