Teeth Bleaching Treatment
Get Beautiful, White Teeth with At-Home or In-Office Treatments
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, there are many different procedures you might explore to improve the health and appearance of your smile. Teeth bleaching is one of the most popular ways to restore smiles because it is a simple procedure with highly noticeable results. Yellowing or dull-colored teeth are common because a number of different foods can stain the teeth over time. Additionally, the aging process, genetics, and habits like cigarette smoking might increase the likelihood that your smile will become tarnished by discoloration and staining. If you want to erase this damage and smile with confidence, Adam K. Smith, DDS can provide the outstanding cosmetic dental care you need to brighten your teeth.
Your Options for Tooth Whitening
Teeth bleaching is a highly customized procedure because every individual will have unique goals for treatment and differing causes of discoloration in the enamel. When you visit our Riverdale or New York City office, you can choose from two different bleaching procedures or explore alternative treatments for uneven or hard-to-treat staining. Here’s a closer look at each of these options.
- At-home whitening trays While there are many over-the-counter solutions for tooth whitening at home, it is important to see the dentist before using any whitening treatment on your own. Our team can provide you with custom-fitted whitening trays that will ensure accurate application of whitening gel to minimize any potential damage to the gum tissue. Bleaching trays are worn for about one hour per day, and they will usually produce results in as little as one week.
- In-office whitening gel If you want to see faster results with your whitening treatment, in-office bleaching may be ideal for you. A more potent whitening gel is applied by the hygienist, and it is activated by laser light, allowing you to leave the office with a smile that is several shades brighter.
- Alternative solutions When the tooth enamel won’t respond to bleaching treatments or you have sensitive teeth that may be irritated by whitening gels, you might consider veneers or crowns instead. Porcelain veneers not only improve the color of your smile, but they can correct other issues like misshapen teeth, gaps between the teeth, or a gummy smile.
Reasons to Consider Bleaching Your Teeth
Because yellowing teeth are common in older adults, whitening treatment can make you look younger without the significant investment that can come with other cosmetic procedures. Additionally, you may simply feel more confident with a whiter smile that reflects the good health of your teeth and gums. Whatever your reason for desiring a brighter, more beautiful smile, Dr. Smith can provide the customized care you need. To schedule an appointment, give us a call today at (718) 884-0400.
