Teeth Whitening

Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “whitening” procedure. A yellow, discolored or dull smile can make you feel extremely self-conscious. And even if you practice good brushing and flossing at home, some stains cannot be removed without the help of a professional.

Teeth  whitening is offered by Dr. Paghdiwala at  Pearl Dental Arts in Levittown, We offer the ZOOM in-office one hour whitening using the ZOOM Light as well as the take home method. Patients choose to get teeth whitening alone or combine it with other cosmetic dentistry procedures and treatments.

Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, teeth whitening is nearly always worth a solid try.

Teeth whitening is safe, quick and inexpensive .and very effective.  Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. 

In-Office 1 Hour Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening is typically recommended for patients who want to see results as soon as possible. 

We use the Philips ZOOM Whitening Light and the ZOOM Whitening Gel. The process usually takes an hour.  This can usually help  lighten your teeth by several shades.

Take-home Teeth Whitening

If you prefer to whiten your your teeth at a gradual pace, in the comfort of your home, you might be a candidate for take-home teeth whitening.

  •   

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth.  In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. The special  whitening agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the desired brightness, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile. 

In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or dental veneers may be more appropriate.

The Benefits of Professional Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends. The over-the-counter whitening agents cannot compete with the strength, safety and effectiveness of professional whitening treatments.

Safety: Since professional teeth whitening is non-invasive, it is considered a very safe way to transform the look of your smile. If you have sensitive teeth, we will take extra precautions such as choosing the right concentration of the whitening gel to prevent discomfort.

Minimized risk of gum irritation: Unlike over-the-counter whitening kits, both the in-office method as well as the take-home trays are designed to protect your tissues and reduce the risk of irritation and redness. 

Customization: While store-bought treatments are one size fits all, all professional whitening treatments are designed with your needs in mind. The trays for our take-home treatments are custom-made under vacuum from molds that we make of your teeth, so that you get the best fit and the best results possible.

Cost-Effectiveness: Teeth whitening is a highly affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure that can help you achieve a significant smile upgrade. A whiter smile can help you achieve the confidence you always wanted, especially before an important event such as wedding, birthday or business presentation.
