NYC Cosmetic Dentistry – Tooth Whitening
Teeth whitening is now the most frequently performed of all cosmetic or aesthetic dental procedures in New York City, and its popularity continues to grow.
Properly done, teeth whitening can remove the unsightly stains and discoloration that are likely to mar the appearance of teeth over the years (aging, smoking, the consumption of coffee, red wine and certain fruits and vegetables are the usual “culprits”) and give you the white, bright teeth that make for a truly attractive, confident, winning smile.
While there are dozens of over-the-counter whitening products for use at home and any number of toothpastes that claim to have whitening properties, results are mixed at best.
They are unable to match the dramatic results of in-office teeth whitening using a bleaching light along with custom-fitted home bleaching trays, made by our in-house lab at no additional charge. The procedure is expertly performed by a cosmetic dentist or licensed dental hygienist. This is the fastest, safest and most reliable of the whitening processes.
In-office whitening can often last as long as five years.
Another alternative is at-home whitening, under your dentist’s supervision. The dentist supplies you with take-home whitening kits that include custom-fitted bleaching “trays” for your mouth, along with detailed instructions on their use.
