How a teeth whitening treatment from your dentist in Garden City can revitalize your smile
Would you like to revitalize your smile? Has your smile become stained from coffee, red wine, or tobacco use? Is your smile showing your age? If you answered yes to these questions, it’s time to whiten and brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening. Dr. Eugene Porcelli at Garden City Family Dental in Garden City, NY, can share what you need to know about professional teeth whitening and how you can get a whiter smile easily.
If you’ve tried over-the-counter whitening products, you may have noticed they don’t give you dramatic results. The results may only last a few weeks too. Many over-the-counter products have not been tested for safety and may even contain harmful, harsh chemicals, and abrasive agents which can make your gums and teeth sensitive.
When you choose professional teeth whitening, you can be sure of:
- Dramatic results, because you can whiten your smile up to 8 shades whiter.
- Long-lasting results, because your brightened smile can last up to 5 years.
- Safe results, because professional teeth whitening materials are rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness and approved by the American Dental Association.
Professional teeth whitening is also kind to your budget, often costing less than other cosmetic dental services.
Dr. Porcelli offers an in-office professional Zoom! Whitening treatment that takes about an hour. During your whitening appointment, a highly-skilled dental professional will apply prescription strength whitening gel to your teeth. The brightening action of the gel is then accelerated using a high-tech ultraviolet light.
There are many reasons why your smile can benefit from a professional teeth whitening treatment. Drinking coffee, tea, or red wine can cause dark stains on your teeth. Smoking and using other forms of tobacco can add thick brown stains. Aging also plays a role in darkening your smile. As you age, your tooth enamel becomes thinner, exposing the layer underneath, called dentin. This dentin layer is naturally yellow and shows through, causing your smile to have a yellow cast.
No matter what has caused your smile to go dark, professional teeth whitening can revitalize your smile. If you want to get a whiter smile easily, just pick up the phone and call Dr. Porcelli at Garden City Family Dental in Garden City, NY, today!
