When your teeth are dull or stained, it's hard to feel good about your smile. If you've ever tried whitening your teeth yourself and been ]disappointed in the results, you may think that a bright, white smile just isn't possible for you. Dr. Brandon Huang of midtown Manhattan's New York Dental Studio explains how professional teeth whitening can help you.
Why can't I brush my stains away?
Brushing is very effective at removing surface stains, but your toothbrush can't get rid of the stains that penetrate tooth enamel. In order to remove stains caused by coffee, tea, wine, cola, berries, tomatoes, sports drinks and other dark foods and beverages, you need a little extra help.
How is professional teeth whitening better?
Dr. Huang uses a whitening gel to whiten teeth. The gel is stronger than the whitening agents in over-the-counter products, yet still gentle on your teeth. Dr. Huang offers Philips Zoom, which uses an LED light to speed up the whitening process. This process can reach deep into your enamel to remove stubborn stains. In many cases, your teeth will look an average of three to eight shades whiter after one in-office treatment.
Take-home kits offer you the flexibility to whiten your teeth on your schedule. You'll be given the trays and gel and will be instructed how and when to use them. In as little as two weeks, your teeth will be much whiter. Take-home kits are also a good choice if you want to occasionally touch up your whitening results.
What happens during an in-office whitening treatment in midtown Manhattan?
Your teeth must professionally cleaned to remove plaque and tartar before they are whitened. Before the whitening treatment begins, your gums and cheeks will be gently pulled away from your teeth with retractors and a protective gel will be applied to your gums. Treatment only takes about an hour and offers impressive results.
