Wipe away stains and boost your appearance with a professional teeth whitening treatment.teeth whitening

It’s amazing how quickly a beautiful smile can fall flat thanks to your diet, certain habits, age and even genetics. If you have been trying at-home whitening kits or whitening toothpastes but they aren’t giving your smile the true boost it needs then it’s time to consider seeing our Midtown Manhattan, NY, dentist Dr. Brandon Huang for professional teeth whitening.

If you want a quick and effective way to get your smile several shades whiter then you’re in luck because our Midtown Manhattan cosmetic dentist can easily offer a brighter smile with professional in-office teeth whitening. Most people who choose to get teeth whitening will notice moderate to significant changes in the color and radiance of their teeth in often just one session.

How does professional teeth whitening work?

Philips Zoom teeth whitening treatment contains a high percentage of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, the two active ingredients that help to whiten teeth. When this gel is applied over the front surface of your teeth, the active ingredient will enter the enamel and break up stain molecules caused by foods, drinks and tobacco.

Over time, all those years of gnawing, chewing and biting can wear down enamel, which can cause the darker dentin layers of the tooth to shine through. Over time, these micro tears in the enamel of your teeth can lead to the buildup of stains and discolorations, which can really dull your smile and your appearance; fortunately, even just one professional teeth whitening application can get your smile several shades whiter.

Who is a good candidate for professional teeth whitening?

There are some factors to consider before you get professional teeth whitening (regardless of whether you choose our at-home or in-office system). First and foremost, we will need to make sure your teeth are healthy enough for this treatment. Those with tooth sensitivity should let us know beforehand so that we can monitor your sensitivity throughout the whitening process, as this can often exacerbate these symptoms.

Plus, we will need to make sure that the stains you want to treat can be treated through professional teeth whitening. There are two kinds of stains: external and internal. External stains are yellow or brown in color and are typically caused by wear and tear, dark foods and drinks, and tobacco. These stains can be treated with professional teeth whitening.

Of course, internal stains caused by trauma, fluoride treatment or certain medications won’t respond as well to whitening. When you come into our office we will be able to assess your oral health and determine whether you are right for teeth whitening.

Whether you have a special occasion coming up or you just want to give your appearance a little makeover, New York Dental Studio in Midtown Manhattan, NY, can help make that possible with Philips Zoom teeth whitening.
