Brighten Your Smile & Boost Your Confidence With Professional Teeth Whitening in NYC
Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about your teeth? Do you wish your smile was brighter and more attractive? If so, you’re not alone. Many people in New York are unhappy with the color of their teeth, but thankfully, there is a solution: professional teeth whitening.
At our dental office, Dr. A offers professional teeth whitening services to help you achieve the bright, white smile you’ve always wanted. With years of experience and a commitment to using only the safest and most effective techniques, Dr. A is the perfect choice for anyone looking for teeth whitening in New York.
How it works
Over time your teeth darken as minerals penetrate their outer enamel layer. In addition to the natural aging process, this darkening can be caused by foods and beverages that stain such as coffee, colas, tea, red wine, or berries. Tobacco products can cause teeth to take on a yellowish-brown hue as well. Smile Design Dental Studio offers our patients in-office power whitening and at-home whitening. You choose the system that’s right for you.
Take-home kits incorporate an easy-to-use lower-concentration peroxide gel that remains on the teeth for an hour or longer (sometimes overnight). The lower the peroxide percentage, the longer it may safely remain on the teeth. The gel is applied to the teeth using custom-made bleaching trays that resemble mouth guards. Typically, you will begin to see results within two to three weeks of regular use.
Significant color change in a short period is the major benefit of in-office whitening. This whitening option involves the carefully controlled use of a relatively high-concentration peroxide gel, applied to the teeth after the gums have been protected with a paint-on rubber dam. Generally, the peroxide remains on the teeth for approximately 15 to 20-minute intervals that add up to an hour (at most). Those with particularly stubborn staining may be advised to return for one or more additional bleaching sessions or may be asked to continue with a home-use whitening system.

The Benefits of Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening offers many benefits beyond just improving the appearance of your smile. Some of the benefits of teeth whitening include:
- Increased Confidence: When you feel good about your smile, it can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem. Teeth whitening can help you feel more confident and comfortable in social situations.
- Youthful Appearance: Yellowed or stained teeth can make you look older than you are. Teeth whitening can help you look younger and more vibrant.
- Improved Oral Health: While teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment, it can also have a positive impact on your oral health. When your teeth are brighter, you may be more motivated to take better care of them through brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.
- Affordable: Teeth whitening is an affordable cosmetic dental treatment that can provide significant results without breaking the bank.
Maintaining Your Results
After your teeth whitening treatment, it’s important to take steps to maintain your new, bright smile. This includes practicing good oral hygiene habits, avoiding foods and drinks that can stain your teeth (such as coffee, tea, and red wine), and scheduling regular dental check-ups and cleanings.
In addition, Dr. A can provide you with tips and recommendations for maintaining your results, such as using a whitening toothpaste or touch-up treatments.
Is Teeth Whitening Right for You?
Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. However, it’s not right for everyone. During your initial consultation with Dr. A, we’ll evaluate your teeth and discuss your goals to determine if teeth whitening is the best option for you.
Some factors that may affect your suitability for teeth whitening include the presence of tooth decay or gum disease, as well as the use of certain medications or previous dental work. If teeth whitening is not a good option for you, Dr. A can discuss other cosmetic dental treatments that may be more appropriate.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What Is Professional Teeth Whitening and How Does It Work?
A: Professional teeth whitening at Smile Design Dental Studio is a cosmetic dental procedure aimed at lightening the natural color of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surfaces. It involves the application of a whitening agent, typically a form of hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These agents break down, allowing oxygen to enter the enamel and dentin, which then lightens the color of the teeth.
Q: Is Professional Teeth Whitening Safe?
A: Yes, professional teeth whitening conducted by a qualified dentist like Dr. Aguebor at Smile Design Dental Studio is safe. The process is carefully monitored to ensure that the health of your gums and teeth is maintained. We use high-quality, tested products and techniques to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
Q: How Long Does Professional Teeth Whitening Last?
A: The results of professional teeth whitening can last from a few months up to three years, but this varies significantly from person to person. Factors such as diet, oral hygiene habits, and smoking can affect the longevity of the whitening effects. Regular touch-up treatments can help maintain the brightness.
Q: Will My Teeth Look Unnaturally White After the Procedure?
A: At Smile Design Dental Studio, our goal is to achieve a natural-looking enhancement of your smile. Dr. Aguebor customizes the treatment to match your specific needs and desired outcomes, ensuring that your teeth are whitened to a natural shade that complements your overall appearance.
Q: Can Everyone Get Their Teeth Whitened?
A: Most adults can undergo professional teeth whitening, but there are exceptions. It’s not recommended for children under 16, pregnant or lactating women, and individuals with sensitive teeth, allergies to whitening agents, or gum disease. Dr. Aguebor will evaluate your suitability during your consultation.
Q: Does Teeth Whitening Work on All Types of Teeth?
A: Professional teeth whitening works best on natural teeth and may not be effective on all types of discolorations. For example, yellow tones respond well to whitening, while brownish and grayish tones may not respond as effectively. Veneers, crowns, and fillings also do not respond to whitening agents.
Q: Is There Any Downtime After the Whitening Procedure?
A: There is no downtime required after a professional teeth whitening session. You can typically resume your normal activities immediately. However, you might be advised to avoid certain foods and drinks that can stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, for a short period after the treatment.
Q: Will I Experience Sensitivity After Teeth Whitening?
A: Some people may experience temporary tooth sensitivity after a professional teeth whitening procedure. This sensitivity is usually mild and short-lived. Dr. Aguebor can advise on specific toothpaste and other methods to minimize discomfort.
Q: How Do I Maintain My Whitened Teeth?
A: To maintain your newly whitened teeth, it’s important to follow good oral hygiene practices, including regular brushing and flossing. Avoiding foods and beverages that stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, can also help. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings at Smile Design Dental Studio will further assist in maintaining your smile.
Q: How Much Does Professional Teeth Whitening Cost?
A: The cost of professional teeth whitening varies depending on the type of treatment and the extent of whitening desired. At Smile Design Dental Studio, we provide a detailed cost breakdown during your consultation, ensuring transparency and helping you make an informed decision.
Q: Can I Whiten My Teeth If I Have Fillings or Crowns?
A: Teeth whitening does not affect the color of fillings, crowns, or other restorative materials. It only works on natural tooth enamel. This means that if you have visible restorations, they might not match your newly whitened natural teeth. Dr. Aguebor can discuss options with you during your consultation.
