It’s still summertime, and that means you may have some social engagements lined up. To feel your best during warm-weather gatherings, and everywhere else you go, consider how a bright, shining smile could serve you.
Our teeth naturally need a boost from time to time. This does not indicate that care is lacking; only that the porous nature of teeth makes enamel susceptible to stains. When your smile has lost its sheen, you can visit our patient-centered dental office in New York City, where we will make you comfortable and commence with your smile makeover.
Why Wait for a Brighter Smile?
There are numerous ways that you might try to lighten up discoloration that is stealing the brilliance from your smile. If you have any amount of aversion to visiting the dentist (most of our patients do), your first inclination may be to work out stains with an over-the-counter product such as gel-coated strips. Why wait, though? And why waste any time? Professional whitening can get results in less than an hour. And because we cater to folks with dental anxiety, you can feel secure in knowing we’ve got your comfort in mind.
What to Expect During Professional Teeth Whitening
The reason why in-office teeth whitening gets results so quickly is that we activate the hydrogen peroxide gel with light. The process is simple and convenient, and it is also safe. Best of all, it’s accelerated! During your visit, we will:
- Gently clean your teeth to remove the natural biofilm that may inhibit the absorption of whitening gel.
- Apply a tasteless solution to the gums to protect them from irritation.
- Insert a comfortable fixture to protect the lips during whitening.
- Apply the whitening gel to enamel, and activate this solution with light.
- After about thirty minutes, we will remove the gel and clean your teeth.
One of the goals of our practice is to approach dental care in a way that promotes trust and comfort. We recognize the value of compassionate care, and use our skills to help patients gain a sense of confidence in their smile again (and in dentistry!).
