Teeth whitening is perhaps the most popular form of cosmetic dentistry in the United States, including in Massapequa. At Sunrise Mall Dental Center, we use our years of expertise to ensure you have a comfortable and relaxing experience while our dentists lift the stains from your teeth. In less than an hour, you can have a brighter, whiter smile to show the world.
Although there are many teeth whitening kits you can buy online, these are not as effective as the treatment you receive at a dentist’s office. Our in-office service and prescribed kits have more whitening power and include years of research to back the formula, so you don’t experience negative side effects. We care for your health, not profit, and we want to ensure you get the best treatment.
When you visit Sunrise Mall Dental Center for whitening, the process begins with a quick exam and thorough dental cleaning to eliminate plaque that would affect the evenness of the coat. Afterward, we apply a peroxide solution to the teeth as a gel.
Once exposed to a special light, the peroxide begins to break down, releasing oxygen. The oxygen removes stains from the teeth, giving you a cleaner, brighter, and whiter smile.
The benefits of teeth whitening are purely cosmetic, but that is often enough for people. Your smile will be brighter with fewer stains and less discoloration. For many of our patients, this improves confidence and self-esteem since they can eliminate the results of poor oral hygiene or drinking staining beverages like coffee, tea, and soda.
When you visit us at our office in Massapequa, you are receiving a safe dental whitening. All of our products and equipment are thoroughly tested to ensure they do not damage your teeth. While some patients experience minor sensitivity after the procedure, it fades after 24 to 72 hours.
Teeth whitening isn’t for everyone. If you are interested in the procedure, we recommend scheduling an appointment for a basic exam first. Some conditions, such as teeth grayed by medications, will not be affected by the treatment.
