Worried about a faded, dull smile? You don’t have to be any longer when you get teeth whitening.

When talking about teeth whitening, there are so many options out there that it can be rather mind-boggling. Of course, you may already have tried commercial whitening toothpaste or strips and have been unimpressed with the results. It can often take weeks just to see a Teeth Whiteningslight change. But if you are looking for more drastic results in a shorter time span then it’s time to talk to your Stony Point, NY family dentist, Dr. Michael Bleyzer, about professional teeth whitening.

What is the purpose of teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is designed to brighten teeth and remove stains and discolorations from the surface of your teeth. This has become one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments your Stony Point cosmetic dentist performs because it’s an easy, fast, and painless way to get a smile makeover.

What causes dental stains?

There are many reasons why you may be dealing with dental stains. Some of the most common causes are:

  • Tobacco
  • Consuming dark foods or drinks like coffee, wine, tea or berries
  • Not maintaining good oral hygiene
  • Taking antibiotics
  • Aging
  • Direct trauma
  • Excessive fluoride use

Stains that occur inside the tooth (also known as intrinsic stains) are caused by antibiotics, too much fluoride or injury. These stains don’t respond as effectively to professional teeth whitening as external stains cause by aging, tobacco use or certain foods or drinks.

How can whitening help?

Professional dentist-supervised whitening either at-home or in-office uses the strongest bleaching gel available so that you get the results you want faster. If you are looking to get your smile up to eight shades whiter in just one hour, then in-office whitening is the best option. But if you are looking for a more budget-friendly option and can wait a couple weeks to see results, then talk to us about at-home whitening.

Ready to find out how much whiter your smile could get in just one session? Then what are you waiting for? Schedule your first appointment at our Stony Point, NY dental office and get one step closer to a more radiant smile.
