Gramercy Park Zoom! Teeth Whitening
A brighter smile can make anyone look and feel years younger and give patients the confidence to share their smiles in any personal or professional situation. Unfortunately, many of our patients only visit our Gramercy Park dental office for professional teeth whitening treatment after wasting countless hours and dollars on over the counter teeth whitening therapies that result in little to no improvement in the shade of patients’ smiles. If you’re considering brightening your smile, visit Gramercy Dental Studio for a cosmetic dentistry consultation. We offer a variety of cosmetic solutions, including Zoom! teeth whitening to deliver beautiful smiles. During your cosmetic dentistry consultation, our skilled dentist will evaluate your current tooth shade, discuss your desired results, and help you achieve the brilliant white smile you deserve. Call today to learn more or schedule an appointment with us.
How do Teeth Discolor?
Before our team recommends any specific teeth whitening treatment, we will take the time to determine the underlying cause of your dental discoloration, including:
- Consumption of staining foods and drinks
- Years of wear that thins tooth enamel revealing the yellow-colored dentin tooth layer
- Smoking and tobacco use darkens the color of tooth enamel
- Fluorosis due to overconsumption of fluoride as a child causes brighter white areas on the tooth
- Tetracycline medications taken during dental development can lead to darker staining on teeth
How Does Zoom! Teeth Whitening Work?
The innovative Zoom! teeth whitening treatment is an in-office cosmetic dentistry solution that is completed in about an hour. We begin by isolating your teeth, using rubber guards to protect lips and soft tissue. Then, we apply the topical teeth whitening gel, and the Zoom! light is positioned over the smile activating and accelerating the chemical whitening process. After twenty minutes, we’ll check your progress, and reapply as necessary. Most patients achieve their teeth whitening goal with just two or three applications.
Why is Zoom! Teeth Whitening Better Than Store Bought Whiteners?
Zoom! teeth whitening offers patients smiles up to ten shades brighter in just one visit to our office. In addition to saving time, you will also receive predictable results under the supervision of our skilled cosmetic dentist. This means you’ll achieve the desired end results in complete comfort with reduced risk for dental sensitivity that can occur following teeth whitening treatments.
How Long do My Whitening Results Last?
Your in-office teeth whitening results will last months or years with proper care. This should include twice a day brushing, daily flossing, and biannual appointments with our team. You will also want to limit or forego consumption of staining foods and drinks like coffee, berries, and red wine. If you use tobacco or smoke, your teeth will also discolor more quickly, so kicking this habit can help extend your results. We can also offer you professional take-home whitening kits, so you can touch up the results a few times each year.
