No matter how carefully you care for your teeth, they will over time become discolored. Eating certain foods such as tomatoes and berries, drinking wine and coffee, and smoking all contribute to tooth staining. However, if your teeth are looking a little less bright than usual, you can visit the family dentistry specialists Dr. Fedele Vero, Dr. Christine Fumo, and Dr. Alec Ganci in Yonkers, NY, for an in-house whitening treatment at General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

Yonkers family dentistry patients who want to brighten their pearly whites are much more satisfied with an in-chair teeth whitening treatment that at-home whitening for the following reasons:

  • At-home whitening kits need to be repeated daily
  • Professional whitening need only been repeated once or twice a year
  • At-home kits can damage your gums and make them extra sensitive
  • Your dentist will protect your gums and mouth tissue from the whitening solution
  • At-home whitening does not always whiten your teeth evenly
  • Professional whitening removed stains evenly and whitens up to seven shades

What Happens During Teeth Whitening?

Before your treatment, your dentist will put barriers in place to protect your lips, gums, and inner cheeks. She will then paint the whitening gel onto your teeth. Once this is done, she will turn on the activating laser and point it at the gel. You will remain under the light for around 20 minutes. This allows the gel time to remove deep stains. When your treatment is finished, your dentist may prepare you for a second round if needed. If not, your dentist will rinse the whitening gel from your teeth and perform a professional cleaning procedure.
