We want our patients to have a beautiful bright smile… and we offer several in-office as well as at-home teeth whitening options to get rid of those unsightly stains.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
There are many benefits of teeth whitening, with the most obvious being that it improves appearance dramatically. You don’t want discolored, yellow teeth. You want a bright, white smile that you can be proud of and show off. On a related note, teeth whitening has been known to boost self-confidence. While you may have been more self-conscious about your discolored teeth, you no longer have to worry and can smile with confidence.
In-Office Teeth Whitening Process
For in-office whitening treatment, one of our NYC teeth whitening dentists will likely photograph your teeth first, which will help to monitor the progress of the treatment. The dentist will clean your teeth to remove bacteria, food, and other substances that accumulate on your teeth and cause the staining. Then, the teeth whitening procedure begins. The procedure typically takes 30 to 90 minutes and can require up to three appointments. The dentist will apply a substance that covers and protects the gums, apply the teeth whitening agent, which is often activated by a laser light. The result is a bright, white smile free of stains.
At-Home Teeth Whitening Process
Finally, our New York dental practice offers at-home teeth whitening treatments. Your dentist can take impressions of your teeth to make custom mouthpieces, and you would fill each mouthpiece with a whitening gel. You can also buy teeth whitening products and toothpastes that we offer to achieve that smile you’ve always wanted.
