Teeth Whitening Can Brighten Your Smile and Enhance Your Confidence
Dr. Michael Molnar believes in helping patients achieve the best smile they can have. With teeth whitening treatments at his Tarrytown, NY, office, you can easily improve your smile's appearance to help you feel more confident and increase your desire to smile. Our in-office teeth whitening treatment uses a powerful but safe whitening gel that eliminates stains to brighten your smile by several shades. We also offer a take-home whitening option that uses a similar gel with customized trays, so you can achieve a whiter smile in the comfort of your own home.
“There are few whitening options that can produce more dramatic results than our in-office and take-home whitening gels.”
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
There are few whitening options that can produce more dramatic results than our in-office and take-home whitening treatments. Our in-office whitening can brighten your smile up to seven shades by using a hydrogen peroxide solution that is activated by a special dental light. When the light shines on the gel, a chemical reaction occurs that breaks the bond between surface stains and the enamel of your teeth. The procedure is easy, painless, and fast, with results achieved in about one hour. Our take-home whitening kits use comfortable trays that we make for you in our office by taking impressions of your upper and lower teeth. Most patients wear the trays with the whitening gel in them overnight, but you can wear them for a few hours at a time whenever you like. Patients often achieve the most dramatic results by combining the in-office and take-home whitening treatments.
What to Expect with In-office Whitening
We recommend a regular teeth cleaning in our office before you have your teeth professionally whitened. To begin your in-office whitening procedure, we will apply a protective covering onto your lips and gums so the whitening gel doesn't affect them. Next, we will coat the front surfaces of your teeth with the whitening gel. The dental light will then be shone onto your teeth in order to activate the gel. After about 15 minutes, the gel will be removed from your teeth, and a fresh coat will be reapplied. Three 15-minute sessions is usually enough to achieve the desired whitening, and the results are immediately visible. After you have had in-office whitening, you can use a take-home kit to maintain your results with periodic touch-ups.
Teeth Whitening Benefits
Your smile is one of the most identifying and memorable things about you. If your smile is stained, yellowed, or dingy-looking, it can take away from your appearance, and it can even make you look older than you really are. Achieving a brighter smile can also encourage you to smile more often, which increases happiness. Smiling more can also make you stand out to potential employers or other people on whom you would like to make a good impression.
Our patients recommend us because our treatments are safe, comfortable, and effective. Whitening your teeth with us, either in our office or at home, is one of the simplest and most affordable ways to upgrade your appearance and help you feel good about yourself. Whitening can also be combined with other treatments, such as porcelain veneers or dental crowns, for a truly dramatic difference.
