Your teeth are often the first thing people notice when you greet them. That’s why so many New Yorkers seek out the most effective ways to keep them in tip-top shape. Whether you are riding on the subway, presenting at a board meeting, saying hi to a potential partner on a first date, or making a long-awaited appearance at a class reunion, you probably want your smile to be bright, white, and shining. That’s where we come in! In our offices, we make use of state-of-the-art teeth whitening procedures, cutting out the work for you and helping you get a smile that you love to show off in a shorter amount of time.
It’s time to face the facts. No matter how good your oral health routine is, you are still susceptible to tooth discoloration. This can come from a variety of situations, including the consumption of staining liquids, like coffee, soda, tea, or red wine, on a regular basis. Smoking and chewing tobacco can also increase your risk for advanced yellowing (along with a host of other issues). Finally, your age can also play a part, as teeth who have seen many decades tend to show their wear and tear. The fact is that the longer we use our teeth, the more they come in contact with staining opportunities. If you notice that your smile has changed as you age, you’re not alone. Even better, we are here to help!
Teeth Whitening Options
Today, there are many products marketed toward whitening teeth. You might see them on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, or other social media platforms and hear celebrity endorsements to back up their claims. From charcoal to coconut oil, there are a variety of “new” ingredients aimed at treating discoloration. Although these over-the-counter or mail-order products can produce some lightning results, it is simply impossible to beat what is offered in a dental office.
At Cohen Dental, we strive to provide the fastest, boldest results. In our Great Neck and Briarwood offices, we offer both Zoom! Laser Bleaching for quick and lasting results, as well as Take Home Bleaching. What’s the difference?
Zoom! Laser Bleaching
The Zoom! In-Office Whitening System is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure that uses a laser to bleach your pearly whites and give you a glowing smile. Our clients love that it’s safe, effective, and very fast. In just over an hour with our staff, your teeth will be dramatically whiter, so the process is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. For most patients, teeth become six to 10 shades whiter, and sometimes even more, with just one appointment.
The key to this procedure’s success is a combination of hydrogen peroxide and light. During your treatment, we will apply a special gel to your teeth and expose your mouth to an advanced light to activate the gel’s ingredients.
Of course, we completely understand if you would rather whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. You’ve surely seen drugstore and online products that advertise how great their products are for taking teeth from dull to brilliant. Although these treatments can be helpful, their results are far from what you can receive with one of our professional at-home bleaching kits. In fact, the components that make up this option are only available through dentists.
In addition to offering quality care, our kits are convenient and easy to use in your spare time, whether that means whitening on your way to work or making treatments part of your self-care routine when the kids go to bed.
To decide which option is best for you and your situation and goals, we will complete an evaluation to discuss what your hopes are. This will include a look at your teeth and gums to determine your current status, as well as a conversation about your current lifestyle.
Once you whiten your teeth, it’s important that you stay on top of your oral health. That means continued regular brushing and flossing, along with periodic whitening procedures.
