Whether the ring of wedding bells is in your near future or you just want to give your appearance a little spruce, professional teeth whitening can be a simple, easy and painless way to enhance your smile. If you are tired of trying one whitening product after another and still aren’t getting the results you want, our Midtown Manhattan cosmetic dentist Dr. Brandon Huang has you covered.

Professional teeth whitening is far more effective than other teeth whitening options. This is because the medical-grade whitening gel that our Manhattan, NY, dentist uses contains a much higher percentage of the active ingredient (either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). This means that the whitening gel doesn’t have to remain on teeth nearly as long as at-home treatment in order to see visible results.

When you get Philips Zoom in-office teeth whitening, you could leave the office with a smile that’s several shades whiter in just one session. In fact, most people get the results they’ve been looking for after a single treatment. Of course, those dealing with more stubborn or severe stains may require more than one treatment. This is something we can discuss when you come in for your consultation.

Who is a good candidate for teeth whitening?

Most healthy individuals that aren’t dealing with cavities or active gum disease can be great candidates for professional teeth whitening. If you experience tooth sensitivity let us know beforehand, as whitening treatment could temporarily intensify sensitivity. Luckily, if we know that you deal with this issue we can provide ways to reduce sensitivity during and after your treatment.

It’s also important to understand what dental stains professional whitening can and can’t handle. Whitening can best tackle external stains, or stains caused by aging and dark foods and drinks. Whitening can also handle smoking stains, but these stains tend to be more stubborn and might require several whitening sessions.

If your teeth look dull and yellow, these are the stains that respond best to whitening. Internal stains (usually blue or grey in color) won’t respond to teeth whitening (but there are other cosmetic options that can hide these discolorations). Also, dental work such as filling and crowns won’t be affected by whitening treatment.
