Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening ImageProfessional teeth whitening is one of the quickest, easiest ways to dramatically improve the appearance of one’s smile. Also known as teeth bleaching, whitening treatments bleach stains from the teeth caused by coffee, tea, red wine, certain medications, tobacco, and the effects of aging to reveal a whiter, brighter smile. Teeth bleaching can lighten the teeth up to ten shades, rejuvenating the smile and creating a more youthful overall appearance. Cosmetic dentist Edward Shukovsky, D.M.D., offers the most advanced form of teeth bleaching – laser teeth whitening – at our office. Alternatively, we also offer a fast and effective teeth whitening treatment called Philips Zoom QuickPro that can be added to your regular hygiene appointment. We combine this brief in-office treatment with a take-home teeth whitening product for enhanced results. To learn more about how we can transform your smile with professional bleaching or a quick in-office treatment, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.

What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening uses a gentle yet effective dental-grade whitening solution, which bleaches even deep-set stains from the enamel. The practice of Edward Shukovsky, D.M.D., offers laser teeth whitening, in which Dr. Shukovsky applies the solution to the teeth and then activates it with a special laser; the solution then begins bleaching out stains. This process is usually repeated several times over the course of about an hour, during which the patient can sit back and relax in the dentist’s chair. When the teeth whitening treatment is complete, the patient can leave our office with a gorgeous, dazzling new smile.

For those who want faster results, we also offer Philips Zoom QuickPro – a treatment that takes only about five minutes and can easily be combined with your regular dental cleaning appointment. Patients typically experience little to no sensitivity with this product. Before leaving our office, many patients are able to notice their teeth have become 4-5 shades whiter! To continue your whitening treatment after your visit, we will provide you with Opalescence Go, a product that utilizes disposable trays pre-filled with a professional whitening gel. These trays do not need to be custom-made, as they are designed to fit snugly and comfortably in your mouth to continue the whitening process.

Benefits of Teeth Bleaching

Professional teeth bleaching offers numerous benefits. For example, it:

  • Removes stains from the teeth. Professional teeth bleaching products remove stains that are untreatable with over-the-counter products.
  • Requires just one or two office visits. Laser teeth bleaching can brighten the smile by up to ten shades in just one office visit.
  • Is non-invasive. Unlike porcelain veneers, bleaching does not require reduction of the teeth.
  • Is customizable. The dentist can control the degree of whitening to suit a patient’s preferences.
  • Is an excellent smile makeover treatment. Teeth bleaching is often all that is needed for a mini smile makeover.
  • Is compatible with other treatments. Teeth bleaching is compatible with Invisalign® and other cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments.
