Your Teeth Whitening and Bleaching Options

Your Teeth Whitening and Bleaching Options

Totally safe and best of all, it works--that's professional teeth whitening and bleaching from Queens Professional Dental Care in Jackson Heights, NY. Your family dentists, Dr. Alamzad and Dr. Yang, fully vet their cosmetic dentistry patients before performing this popular aesthetic treatment. Relax, and expect a dazzling smile!

Dental stains

They are stubborn and disappointing. Dingy, dull, yellow discolorations from coffee, cigarettes and darkly-colored foods make you feel older and less confident in social and professional situations.

Fortunately, teeth whitening and bleaching is today's most successful and popular aesthetic dental treatment, reports the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. And, at our Jackson Heights, NY, office you can choose from quick, in-office whitening or a handy take-home version. Both whitening options improve tooth color by up to eight shades of color.

Brightening your smile

See Dr. Alamzad or Dr. Yang at our Jackson Heights office. Your dentist will look over your medical history and examine your teeth and gums to make sure your mouth is healthy (no active gum disease or tooth decay). Then, you can proceed with your whitening treatment.

In the office, you'll have your renewed smile in just about an hour. A powerful hydrogen peroxide gel seeps into your tooth enamel and literally lifts out staining organic matter. Your dentist just rinses it away.

If you choose the home version, you'll apply the gel with custom-made whitening trays. Wear them for a specific amount of time daily for about a week, and get the same wonderful results.

Smile with confidence

Keep the shine on your renewed smile with some simple care strategies such as:

  • Protecting your mouth with a bite guard for teeth clenching or a mouth guard if you play a sport such as soccer (oral trauma can cause dental discolorations)
  • Drinking your cola, tea, coffee or sports drink with a straw
  • Rinsing or brushing after consuming darkly-pigmented foods, such as blackberries or curry
  • Stopping all tobacco--both smokeless tobacco and cigarettes
  • Drinking a lot of water throughout your day (water increases saliva production and washes off your tooth enamel)
  • Brushing two times a day for a full two minutes as the American Dental Association recommends
  • Flossing once daily to remove the plaque which can hold onto stains
  • Seeing your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and check-up
