Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Our office uses Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatments. Patients can choose whether or not they want to undergo treatment in our office or their home. Either way, Zoom! Teeth Whitening treatments are very effective at removing years of stains from your dental structures to achieve beautiful, youthful results.
What about over-the-counter teeth whitening options?
Over-the-counter whitening products are risky because they are a one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry. What this means is that they have created these products to fit standard smiles. If you have any unique features such as gaps, crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, or missing teeth, the whitening products may not cover every aspect of your smile.
That often leads to inconsistent, blotchy results. With professional teeth whitening treatments, we ensure that the whitening trays are created using dental impressions of your own smile. This means that the whitening gel will coat your smile more evenly for more consistent results.
Do you have sensitive teeth?
Patients with sensitive teeth may experience some discomfort when using over-the-counter options. This is because the gel is made to fit the needs of most smiles without accounting for varying dental sensitivities. When you choose professional teeth whitening treatment, we can tailor your experience to you and your needs.
If you have sensitive teeth, we can adjust the potency of the whitening gel to make your experience more comfortable while still just as effective. We will also place a protective covering over your lips and gums to prevent the whitening gel from irritating them.
Schedule An Appointment
Dental discoloration is a common concern that many patients will experience at some point in their lives. If you notice that your smile is becoming yellow or dull, schedule an appointment with Dr. Fedida, your local cosmetic dentist in Jackson Heights, New York. We look forward to helping you achieve your dream smile.
