Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Our professional whitening treatment uses bleaching agents crafted with tooth sensitivity in mind. Over-the-counter tooth whitening gels, strips, and toothpaste are not effective enough to whiten teeth. Teeth whitening treatment can lighten the tooth enamel by multiple shades. Patients who receive professional whitening treatment are often more motivated to maintain their smiles because of their brilliant results. Staying away from tobacco products and staining foods and beverages ensure that teeth whitening results last longer.
Teeth Whitening Treatment
We offer Zoom! teeth whitening for quick and effective whitening treatment in-office. Dr. Greenberg uses a gel containing an activating agent of hydrogen peroxide during treatment. This agent penetrates deep stains in the tooth enamel. Dr. Greenberg applies the whitening gel to the teeth and uses a special light to activate the bleaching agents in the gel. This process is repeated to brighten the tooth enamel by multiple shades. In-office tooth whitening is a quick treatment that can be completed in just one office visit. In-office teeth whitening is a great option for patients who want a brighter smile before special occasions such as birthday parties, weddings, and graduations.
Tooth Whitening FAQs
How long do teeth whitening results last?
The results of teeth whitening treatment vary from patient to patient. Every four to six months you can come into our office for touch-up whitening treatment to extend your results. Maintaining your oral health at home and scheduling routine dental appointments also ensure that your whitening treatment lasts. Avoiding smoking and tobacco products as well as 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 whitening gel that is specially formulated 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. 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.
