The Benefits of Teeth Whitening in NYC
Teeth whitening is a sought-after cosmetic dental procedure that can transform your smile. There are many benefits to teeth whitening, including:
- Enhanced confidence: A bright, white smile can boost your self-esteem and make you feel more confident in social and professional settings.
- Youthful appearance: Brighter, whiter teeth can give you a more youthful appearance and help you look healthier and more vibrant.
- Improved oral hygiene: Teeth whitening often goes hand-in-hand with a commitment to better oral hygiene, as patients are more motivated to maintain their newly whitened smile.
At Soul Dental, we utilize the latest advancements in teeth whitening technology to deliver exceptional results. Our experienced dentists are trained in a variety of teeth whitening techniques, including Philips Zoom teeth whitening, KöR Teeth Whitening, and Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite gels. We can help you determine which one is the best choice for you and your unique circumstances.
Philips Zoom Teeth Whitening
Most of our patients choose the in-office Philips Zoom teeth whitening system. Zoom is a light-activated whitening system clinically shown to whiten teeth up to eight shades in just 45 minutes. This technology truly outshines the competition when it comes to results and efficacy. Using a special light-activated gel and advanced LED light technology, the Zoom teeth whitening system breaks up stains and discoloration on your teeth, leaving you with a noticeably whiter smile and dramatic results in just one office visit.
A bedrock of the Soul Dental philosophy is transparent communication and patient education. We love to answer our clients’ questions about teeth whitening, and one we hear frequently is: What is the teeth whitening process like? When you come into one of our three Manhattan offices for Zoom teeth whitening, here is what you can expect:
Step 1: Consultation and Examination
Before starting the Philips Zoom teeth whitening process, our experienced dental professionals will conduct a thorough patient consultation and examination to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. During this initial stage, we will review your dental history, assess the current shade of your teeth, discuss your teeth whitening goals, and address any concerns or questions you may have.
Step 2: Preparation
Once we determine that you are a good candidate for teeth whitening, we will proceed with the preparation phase. Our dental team will clean your teeth to remove any plaque or debris, ensuring that the whitening gel can effectively penetrate your tooth enamel for optimal results. This thorough cleaning also helps to minimize any potential sensitivity that can occur during the treatment.
Step 3: Application of Whitening Gel
With your teeth cleaned and prepped, we then carefully and precisely apply the Philips Zoom whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. This specially formulated gel contains a unique combination of hydrogen peroxide and other powerful active ingredients that work together to break down stains and discoloration on your teeth. The gel is applied evenly to ensure consistent whitening results across all surfaces of your teeth.
Step 4: Activation with the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed Lamp
To enhance the whitening process, we activate the whitening gel using the Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed lamp. This advanced LED light technology helps to accelerate the whitening process, allowing the gel to penetrate deeper into your tooth enamel and deliver faster and more noticeable results. The lamp is positioned over your teeth for a specific period of time, as determined by our dental professionals, to optimize the whitening effects.
Step 5: Reapplication and Multiple Sessions (Optional)
Depending on the discoloration level and your desired results, your dentist may need to reapply additional whitening gel and repeat the activation process. This step allows us to customize the treatment to your specific needs, ensuring you achieve your desired shade of white. Some patients may require multiple sessions to get their ideal results, while others may see significant improvement after just one treatment.
Step 6: Aftercare and Maintenance
After completing the Philips Zoom teeth whitening process, our dental team will provide you with personalized aftercare instructions to help you maintain your newly achieved whiter smile. This may include recommendations for specific oral hygiene products, dietary modifications, and lifestyle habits to avoid staining your teeth. Following these instructions will help prolong the longevity of your whitening results, allowing you to enjoy your brighter smile for months to come.
The Philips Zoom teeth whitening process may not be appropriate for everyone, especially those with sensitive gums and teeth. Our dental professionals will assess your specific dental condition during the consultation to determine the best treatment options for you. We may recommend the KöR whitening system if we observe that you have high tooth and gum sensitivity during your regular dental visits.
KöR Teeth Whitening for Tetracycline Staining and Sensitive Teeth
For our patients with tetracycline staining or sensitive teeth and gums, we recommend the KöR whitening system. Previously untreatable with other whitening systems, tetracycline staining affects around 2% of people who took the common antibiotic as children. Until the availability of KöR whitening, the only way to remove the appearance of tetracycline staining was with veneers.
KöR teeth whitening combines at-home and in-office treatments for maximum, long-term effectiveness. The system works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen, lifting stains from deep within the tooth structure. The KöR whitening procedure is as follows:
Step 1: Impressions and Custom Trays
You will visit the Soul Dental office of your choice, and we’ll take a scan or physical impression of your teeth to fabricate custom trays that will fit your teeth precisely. These exact-fitted trays are designed to seal out saliva and sulcular fluid to prevent contamination, because these oral fluids very quickly neutralize whitening gel.
Step 2: At-Home Whitening
You will take your custom trays home with you and wear them with whitening gel while you sleep for several nights. This provides up to 10 hours of exposure to the whitening agent, as compared to the typical 25-35 minutes, thanks to the sealed, contaminant-free system.
Step 3: Final, In-Office Whitening Treatment
You’ll return to our stylish, relaxing office for one more whitening visit. The KöR procedure is a bit more involved on the front end than some other systems, but it boasts up to 16 shades of whitening. Beyond its initial effectiveness, it’s also long-lasting and leaves your teeth resistant to future staining.
Teeth Whitening At Home
Take-home teeth whitening can be an alternative to in-office whitening or supplement your in-office treatment. We offer two self-administered at-home teeth whitening treatments: Philips Zoom DayWhite and NiteWhite gels. As you’ve probably surmised, the DayWhite gel is used during the day and whitens for 30 minutes. The NiteWhite gel is worn overnight, and it whitens for two hours. Both treatments involve custom-made trays with a peroxide-based whitening gel to break down surface stains and discoloration on teeth. Treatment duration varies depending on the individual and the desired level of whitening, but it typically takes between one and two weeks of daily use for optimal results.
Our Commitment to Your Comfort and Safety
Teeth whitening clients often ask: Will I be comfortable during teeth whitening? The answer is yes! At Soul Dental, your comfort and safety are our top priorities. Our compassionate team of dental professionals will take the time to address your concerns, make you comfortable, and answer any questions you may have. We will guide you through the teeth whitening process, ensuring that you feel relaxed every step of the way.
Some patients may experience slight sensitivity during or after their procedure, but this is temporary and mild. Ask one of our team members if you have any concerns or questions about any part of the teeth whitening process. We’re always happy to help.
