Teeth Whitening at CityLife Dental Care NYC

At City Life Dental, we see a number of patients who all have one thing in common; they want brighter teeth. There are a number of different things that can cause your teeth to be dull from their natural vibrant white. Sometimes aging is enough to diminish the shine. However, staining can also be caused by the foods we eat, the drinks we consume, and smoking. Many of these patients have tried at-home teeth whitening but were less than impressed with the results. If you would like brighter teeth today, call our offices to schedule your appointment. We can evaluate your teeth to see if professional whitening is an option for you.

What is Teeth Whitening

Whether you use an at-home teeth whitening solution or a professional setting, the basic premise is the same. Teeth whitening uses specific formulas that are designed to remove stains or bleach your teeth so that they appear much whiter than they otherwise have.

There are a variety of different options available on the market today. Home options include toothpaste, mouthwash, gums, strips, trays, and brush-on applications to help give you a brighter smile. However, over-the-counter options all have limitations on how strong they can be. Professional applications can be much stronger because they are administered in a controlled setting by our talented staff.

One major concern of using professional-strength whitening without proper application is the potential of getting the solution onto the gums. This can cause skin discoloration and sometimes can burn or damage the gum tissue. Our professional staff uses the best tools available on the market to ensure that no solution comes in contact with your gums and that you get the most benefit from your whitening appointment.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Patients have a variety of different reasons that they want to complete teeth whitening. If you have been considering whitening, it is likely that you will find at least one of these benefits in common, and often many more.

Anti-Aging – Teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most effective methods to make you appear younger and more attractive. A vibrant white smile speaks to young, healthy, and strong teeth. Emphasizing these traits in your smile can help exude an overall image of youth and vitality.

Boost Self-Esteem – If you know that you have stains or discolored teeth, it can be hard to think about anything else when you smile. Many of our patients discuss how they have felt like they need to hold back in personal and professional settings from showing their teeth. This may affect your ability to get that promotion, land a new contract, or maintain a circle of friends. If you suddenly had confidence in your smile, you can focus on more of the things that really matter in your life.

Economical – Teeth whitening is one of the most inexpensive methods of improving the appearance of your smile. Some other options to improve your smile include veneers, crowns, or dental bonding. All of these options cost more than teeth whitening.

Improve Your Oral Care – Recent scientific studies show that patients who have received teeth whitening are more likely to have improved oral care. Many of these patients have an increased sense of value in their smile and are more diligent about maintaining their teeth. When your mouth is healthy, so is the rest of your body.
