Tooth discoloration is perhaps the most common cosmetic dental problem dealt with at our comfortable Tarrytown office. Because so many factors can combine to make teeth dingy, discolored, or stained, and a regular dental hygiene routine is often ineffective at addressing these issues, more people look to teeth whitening solutions every year.
Teeth Whitening Today
At Advanced Dentistry of Tarrytown, we offer the ZOOM! Tooth Whitening system. When performed in-office by our experienced cosmetic dentist, ZOOM! is capable of whitening teeth up to ten shades in as little as one hour. As a supplement to our in-office service, we offer a take-home kit as well. However, in some cases, the take-home kit can serve as a stand-alone solution for removing stains and producing a bright, white smile. The solution best for your smile will be determined by Tarrytown cosmetic dentist Dr. Wanda Mejia or Dr. George Sepiashvili during your initial consultation.
The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening
Store-bought teeth whitening kits offer an unsupervised, one-size-fits-all solution. Even when these kits come with “boil-and-bite” application trays, they often don’t fit properly. Because of their poor fit, they don’t whiten teeth evenly and whitening solution comes in contact with sensitive tissues. This can greatly increase discomfort while failing to produce good looking results.
By contrast, the solution for in-office teeth whitening at our Tarrytown location is applied by an experienced cosmetic dentist, allowing us to evenly whiten your smile and helping to reduce your risk of sensitivity. Our take-home kits come with customized application trays which also whiten every tooth while reducing solution contact with oral tissue for a significantly more comfortable treatment. Both of these options include the guidance and assistance of a trained cosmetic dentist who can tailor your treatment to meet your particular needs. If you are particularly sensitive, we offer treatments that can reduce sensitivity.
You deserve to feel confident in your smile. You also deserve to have your teeth whitened in the safest, most comfortable, and most effective way possible. During your initial consultation with our Tarrytown cosmetic dentist, we can answer any questions you have about teeth whitening and help you determine which professional solution will best meet your needs.
What If Whitening Doesn’t Work
Sometimes people are unsatisfied with the results of teeth whitening, either at-home whitening or professional whitening. This is usually because the discoloration of your teeth isn’t due to surface staining. Instead, your tooth enamel might not be as white as you wish it were. There may be defects in the enamel. Discoloration may even come from inside the tooth because of trauma or infection.
