Teeth Whitening in Hudson Valley, NY

Are you looking for an easy way to brighten your smile? Teeth whitening is an affordable, effective, and easy way to improve your smile. While there are many types of low-strength teeth whitening products available over-the-counter, only a dental professional can provide people with high-strength teeth bleaching. Professional teeth whitening leads to faster, higher-quality results.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is used to restore discolored teeth to their natural teeth color.  The discoloration may be from years of coffee consumption, wine drinking, or even smoking. Teeth whitening is now one of the most common procedures in the field of cosmetic dentistry.

Should I be whitening my teeth?

Although teeth whitening is now the fastest, most convenient way to give the smile an instant overhaul, it might not be best for every patient. If the patient has underlying conditions such as gum disease, teeth whitening may cause more damage than good. The best way to determine if the patient is a good candidate for teeth whitening is to have a consultation with the dentist. Initial assessment for a patient’s suitability for teeth whitening includes checking for existing oral restorations, tooth decay, tooth sensitivity, enamel thickness, gum disease, receding gums, and other factors that may affect the outcome of the procedure.

What is the most effective method of teeth whitening?

Although there are countless do-it-yourself whitening products out in the market today, professional teeth whitening by a dentist is still the best way to get your teeth whitened. Dentist supervised teeth whitening makes efficient use of the active ingredients carbamide and hydrogen peroxide in restoring the teeth’s natural color through deep stain removal. Getting professional teeth whitening at your dentist’s office will assure you of whiter teeth in less than an hour.

If going into the dentist’s office is not an option, the dentist can put together a whitening kit for the patient to use at home, which often make use of carbamide peroxide gels that break down into hydrogen peroxide and urea when applied to the teeth, effectively activating the whitening action. Results obtained with an in-house teeth-whitening kit could potentially achieve the same results as those from professional teeth whitening, but it will take longer.
