Achieve a Dazzling Smile with Teeth Whitening
Nothing beats a bright, white smile in terms of making an immediately positive first impression. A survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry revealed that an astounding 99.7% of all adults hold the belief that smiles represent a critical “social asset,” while 74% believe that an unappealing smile can actually hinder one’s professional prospects.
For these reasons and for the sheer boost of confidence a winning smile has on virtually anyone, more and more individuals are exploring the latest advances in teeth whitening.
Common reasons for tooth whitening procedures
With age, all of us experience the wearing away of the surface layer of tooth enamel and the natural discoloration that results. Teeth can also begin to lose their pearly white appearance for a number of other reasons, including:
- Consumption of red wine, tea, coffee and highly acidic foods
- Use of prescription medications including tetracycline
- Nicotine stains resulting from cigarette smoking
- Lack of proper oral hygiene
- Genetic predisposition toward gray or yellowed teeth
- Dental trauma
- Previous tooth restorations
Regardless of the cause, anyone wishing for a dazzling, white, movie star-quality smile can achieve real results with the teeth whitening Suffolk County has come to trust. Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot possess vast experience with a variety of whitening techniques and procedures and are committed to helping patients find the most effective method for their specific needs.
Effective whitening techniques
The most popular in-office and at-home whitening treatments utilize specially formulated hydrogen peroxide gels meant to dissolve even the most difficult stains to produce whiter, brighter teeth. The impressive results can be achieved without harming the overall strength and durability of the teeth, something patients will certainly appreciate. The key difference between in-office and at-home methods lies in the concentration of the gel used and the length of time it needs to stay atop the teeth.
At Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry, patients are individually assessed for overall dental health and also to determine whether a Zoom or Opalescence Boost in-office procedure is best or if at-home treatment will provide the desired outcome. Some in-office procedures require no more than 60 minutes and involve the use of a chemically activated gel in conjunction with the application of laser light. Others rely solely on the gel itself to remove stains and restore brightness. For patients interested in whitening treatments they can do at home, Dr. Nick and Dr. Elliot can provide Opalescence gel to be used together with customized trays made by using impressions of your own natural teeth.
