Start the New Year Off Right with a Beautiful Smile. Try Teeth Whitening

Having a beautiful smile isn’t just about how you look. It’s also about how you feel. Because when you have teeth that look white, bright, and healthy, you feel more confident, more self-assured, and even more relaxed about yourself and your encounters with other people. The thing is, even though teeth are resistant to stains, they’re not 100 percent stain-proof. And that means they can still be discolored by the foods and beverages we consume.

If you’re a tea or coffee drinker, you probably know the toll your daily habit can take on your pearly whites. But those aren’t the only beverages that can make teeth look dull or dingy. Red wine, dark fruit juices or punches, and even sports drinks can all discolor your teeth too. When it comes to foods, the list is even greater. Tomato sauces and other tomato products, dark-colored fruits, and deeply-tinted spices (like turmeric) can cause staining too, and other foods like citrus fruits that are high in acids can make your tooth enamel soften for a brief period of time, which means it’s even easier for stains to penetrate your teeth and make them look yellow or stained. And, of course, any kind of tobacco product can discolor your teeth — a lot.

Now, it’s true that regular brushing can help keep some stains at bay, or at least reduce the impact of foods and beverages that stain. But even if you have great brushing habits, it’s still rare to get rid of all the stains on your teeth, especially stains that penetrate to the deeper layers of your enamel and dentin.

Professional teeth whitening to the rescue!

At Rozenberg Dental NYC, Lana Rozenberg, DDS and her team help their patients get rid of superficial tooth stains with the state-of-the-art Zoom® whitening system

How In-office whitening works

Our in-office whitening treatment takes about one hour, which means you can transform your smile in the morning or afternoon and enjoy a big social event in the evening. Prior to your teeth-whitening treatment, Dr. Rozenberg recommends that you come in for your routine teeth cleaning and dental checkup

On the day of your teeth-whitening treatment, Dr. Rozenberg will examine your teeth to look for any damage that should be corrected prior to whitening. Next, you’ll be fitted with special trays designed to conform to the contours of your teeth. The trays hold the whitening solution so it’s always in contact with your tooth surfaces throughout the whitening treatment. Once the trays are in place, Dr. Rozenberg will use a special light to “activate” the solution so it can penetrate the deeper layers of dentin, breaking apart stains and bleaching them away. While some patients experience mild sensitivity during their whitening treatments, most have no discomfort at all. 

Zoom Professional whitening vs. drugstore kits

It’s true that you can buy teeth whitening products at your drugstore (and other retail stores). But over-the-counter whitening products aren’t as strong and effective as the professional-strength products provided by Rozenberg Dental NYC, which means you’re not going to get the same results. Plus, when you have your teeth whitened by your dentist, you can feel confident your treatment will be customized for your needs, and Dr. Rozenberg will make sure your teeth and gums are ready for whitening so you can enjoy optimal results. 

One more benefit: If you have sensitive teeth, having your teeth whitened at our office means we can take steps to reduce sensitivity so you can still get the whiter, brighter teeth you want without the discomfort that can be caused by over-the-counter treatments and products.
