Professional in-office whitening treatments are the most effective way to lift tooth discoloration. This treatment uses a highly concentrated peroxide gel and a UV laser to quickly lift staining in as little as one hours. Results vary depending on severity of discoloration, but typically patients see their tooth shade lift by about 8-10 shades in one session. This process can also be paired with at-home whitening treatments to get the best results in the shortest amount of time. Patients who are receiving other treatments, like dental bonding, may use teeth whitening treatments to even out the color of their smile before the bonding is applied. Our Valley Stream cosmetic dentist recommends professional whitening treatments for anyone looking to enhance their smile.
Home whitening kits are also available through our office. These whitening kits contain peroxide gel and whitening trays. These are to be worn daily for the course of about two weeks. Whitening trays gradually lift discoloration by about 3-5 shades all from the comfort of home. This option may be better suited for patients who experience tooth sensitivity or anyone who may not want to commit to the financial investment of professional whitening treatments. Professional whitening treatments are not damaging to teeth, but sensitivity after treatment is possible. Home whitening kits are an affordable way to make gradual changes to your smile without breaking the bank. If you are looking to only make slight changes to the color of your teeth, a home whitening kit may be a great choice.
Fight daily tooth discoloration by using whitening toothpaste! Whitening toothpaste can't transform your smile, but it can help to fight staining that happens everyday due to foods and drinks we enjoy. Whitening toothpaste is formulated to help lift stains before they set, so try using it daily to keep your smile white. Using a mouthwash with a whitening agent can also help to fight daily tooth discoloration. Regular dental cleanings are essential to keep your smile white and protect the results of your teeth whitening treatments. Try to avoid anything that might contribute to further discoloration, like alcohol or tobacco use, excessive sugar, coffee, or red sauce. While some things are fine in moderation, try to reduce your consumption of anything that could stain your teeth. Make sure you clean your teeth properly every morning and night to keep your smile clean and protected against anything that could be a detriment to your smile.
