With tooth whitening from Manhattan smile makeover dentist Dr. Beshar, our patients can enjoy teeth that are up to 9 shades whiter in just one visit. Foods and beverages like coffee, black tea, and wine can leave a person’s teeth discolored and stained and his or her smile looking dingy and older. After tooth whitening with Dr. Beshar, our patients find that their whiter, brightened teeth can take years off of their appearance. If you feel that you may benefit from tooth whitening, visit our Smile Gallery and read on to learn about the many tooth whitening options available at our Manhattan practice, then contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Beshar.
In-Office Tooth Whitening
Tooth whitening performed at our Manhattan office is the fastest and most effective way to brighten your smile. During this visit, Dr. Beshar will apply a whitening gel to your teeth, then shine a special light on your teeth to activate the gel’s whitening properties. A tooth whitening visit to our office in Manhattan takes about 90 minutes, and patients see instant results.
At-Home Tooth Whitening
Some of our patients find that at-home tooth whitening is the most convenient and cost-effective option for them. At Dr. Beshar’s office, we offer a number of at-home tooth whitening products that are superior to products can be purchased at a drug store or pharmacy:
For this type of tooth whitening, Dr. Beshar takes an impression of the patient’s mouth so that a set of tooth whitening trays can be custom made to perfectly fit his or her teeth. The patient will also receive tooth whitening gel that is only available through a dentist’s office. The gel is placed in a tray, which the patient wears for a pre-determined amount of time. This product whitens all of the patient’s teeth and is designed for maximum comfort. Patients who opt for tray tooth whitening could see results in as few as three days, though full whitening usually takes 10-14 days.
Paint-On Tooth Whitening
For patients who don’t need dramatic tooth whitening, a paint-on product may be the most affordable option. With this system, the patient paints a special gel onto the surface of the teeth to be whitened using a small brush. This gel will harden into a film that coats the treated tooth and later dissolves in the mouth.
Tooth Whitening Strips
Tooth whitening strips have become very popular with our Manhattan patients. The strips are made of thin, flexible plastic that is coated with a hydrogen peroxide bleaching agent on one side. The patient simply places the strips across their teeth and presses them into place, wearing the strips for about 30minutes per day, twice a day.
Tooth Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash
Tooth whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes are the most cost-effective option. These products use mild abrasives to remove surface stains on the teeth. Unlike the agents we use for our in-office tooth whitening, though, the bleaching agents in these products do not lighten the actual color of the teeth—they simply make them appear a bit brighter.
