Professional Teeth Whitening with Dr. Greenberg
Our professional whitening treatment uses bleaching agents crafted with tooth sensitivity in mind. Over-the-counter teeth whitening gels, strips, and toothpaste are not effective enough to whiten teeth long term. Our treatments can lighten your tooth enamel in multiple shades. Patients who receive professional whitening treatment are often more motivated to maintain their smiles because of their brilliant results. In addition, staying away from tobacco products and staining foods and beverages ensures that teeth whitening results last longer.
What type of teeth whitening treatment do you use?
We offer Philips Zoom! teeth whitening for quick and effective in-office whitening treatment. Dr. Greenberg uses a gel containing an activating agent of hydrogen peroxide. During treatment, this agent penetrates deep stains in the tooth enamel. Next, Dr. Greenberg applies the whitening gel to the teeth and uses a special light to activate the bleaching agents in the gel. We repeat this process multiple times to brighten the tooth enamel by up to 8 shades in a single visit.
In-office teeth whitening is a quick treatment that takes just one office visit. It’s an excellent option for patients who want a brighter smile before special occasions like birthday parties, weddings, and graduations.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
How long do teeth whitening results last?
The results of treatment vary from patient to patient. To extend your results, you can come into our office for touch-up whitening treatment every four to six months. Maintaining your oral health at home and scheduling routine dental appointments also ensure that your whitening treatment lasts. In addition, avoiding smoking and tobacco products and pigmented drinks and foods will ensure that your smile remains bright.
Does teeth whitening cause tooth sensitivity?
A common side effect of teeth whitening is tooth sensitivity. We use a specially formulated whitening gel to decrease tooth sensitivity and reduce gum irritation. Dr. Greenberg supervises your whitening treatment to ensure that you feel comfortable throughout your care.
What can I do about stubborn tooth stains?
If you have deep stains that do not react well to teeth whitening treatment, we offer cosmetic and restorative dental treatments such as tooth bonding, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns. Dental bonding and veneers can cover the front of teeth and crowns fully envelop teeth to protect them. In addition, we can create a custom color match for each of these treatments to brighten your teeth by multiple shades. Contact Dr. Greenberg if you want to try any of these treatments for deeply stained, yellowed, or discolored teeth.
