Brighten Your Smile Today with Our Franklin Square Teeth Whitening Services

Our teeth can discolor through the years as our enamel wears down. The wearing down of enamel allows dentin to show through. Dentin is the core of our teeth that is naturally yellow, which is what gives our teeth a yellowish tint. Teeth whitening helps restore teeth to a shiny white color through the use of bleach. Our teeth whitening in Franklin Square, NY is a simple way to update the appearance of your smile without making any permanent changes to your smile. 
The Process
Dr. Grossmann offers two different methods of teeth whitening. At-home whitening kits allow you to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home. This method is also more affordable than other forms of cosmetic dentistry. However, at-home whitening kits do not yield the same level of results that other cosmetic treatments do. This process is ideal for a smile that only needs to be lifted a couple of shades. At-home whitening treatments will gradually lighten your teeth over a few weeks as you wear the whitening trays nightly.
Another method of Franklin Square teeth whitening is professional bleaching here at Dr. Grossmann's office. Our bleaching treatment takes about an hour and you will see results right after leaving the office. Bleaching can whiten teeth by about eight shades in just one procedure. Dr. Grossmann will use high-concentration hydrogen peroxide and an ultraviolet laser to activate the bleaching agent. Your teeth will be visibly brighter and will likely continue to whiten for about 24 hours after the procedure is completed.
Call Dr. Grossmann to learn more about your options for teeth whitening at our office and schedule your consultation to see which option is best for you.
Maintaining Your Brand New Smile
There are a few ways you can help maintain your fresh, bright, white smile. The most important thing is to avoid smoking and tobacco use. Nothing discolors teeth quicker than smoking or chewing tobacco. You should also limit your consumption of black coffee or sugary drinks. Excessive alcohol consumption can also negatively affect the color of your smile. Red wine and red sauce can also cause yellowing of your smile. If you do choose to consume these liquids, rinse your mouth out afterward and use a straw if applicable.
Having a healthy dental care routine can help keep your smile white. You should always brush twice a day and floss after eating. Use fluoride products to help protect your tooth’s enamel. If you suffer from naturally sensitive teeth, professional teeth whitening may not be for you. Teeth whitening may cause tooth sensitivity due to the high-powered chemicals used during treatment. Consult with Dr. Grossman to find the best Franklin Square teeth whitening option that may be better suited for patients with sensitive teeth.
