As the years go by, our teeth naturally lose their luster. Dark colored foods and drinks speed up the process, but even people who avoid coffee, wine and cola are not immune to yellow or gray teeth. Want to brighten up your smile? Have you considered tooth whitening? Teeth whitening at Staten Island Dental Care – Dr. Frederick Hecht is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to look younger and more attractive.
Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
Though some Staten Island Dental Care – Dr. Frederick Hecht teeth whitening patients experience a little short-term sensitivity, most experience no pain at all.
There are several different methods for whitening teeth but each uses a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have accumulated in the microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.
DIY Whitening Products
First of all, the strips, mouthwashes and paint-on whiteners use a lower concentration of whitening agent than in-office methods. They rarely remove all of the stains on your enamel. If you have gum disease, cavities, crowns, dental bonding, or porcelain veneers, Dr. Frederick Hecht recommends first visiting your dentist for a teeth whitening consultation. You are always better off having teeth whitening performed by a professional. This will protect your existing restorations and ensure the best possible results.
Don’t assume that tooth whitening offered at NYC mall kiosks is risk-free. The industry is largely unregulated and the staff often have little dental training. Do you really want to take chances with your smile?
At Staten Island Dental Care – Dr. Frederick Hecht, we are currently accepting new patients at our Staten Island office. My friendly team of skilled dental professionals would love to serve you with porcelain veneers, cosmetic dentistry, porcelain crowns, root canals, or teeth whitening. You can schedule an appointment by calling 718-761-5757.
