Isn’t it time you got your pearly whites whiter with a cosmetic whitening system that actually works?teeth whitening

Whether you’ve just started noticing that your teeth look a bit dull and yellow or you’ve been trying whitening toothpastes for some time without much change, there are certain situations that warrant talking to our Jackson Heights, NY, cosmetic dentists, Dr. H. Alamzad and Dr. Rihito Matsui, about the wonderful effect of professional teeth whitening.

What are my whitening options?

If you have noticeable dental stains, then chances are pretty good that you are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. There are a couple whitening methods that we offer, but the most popular is our in-office whitening system. Our in-office whitening uses the strongest bleaching gel on the market to vanish unwanted surface stains and to get your smile several shades whiter.

When you come into our office to get teeth whitening from our Jackson Heights, NY, dentists, we will first perform a dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from teeth. This ensures that the bleaching gels gets to as many surfaces of your teeth as possible. Once your teeth are cleaned, we will paint the gel over your teeth. This gel will only be applied to teeth that you see when you smile.

The gel will be left on teeth from anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes before being removed and reapplied. A normal bleaching session takes about one hour to complete and you’ll be able to notice the difference right away. In some cases, one session may be all that’s needed to get your smile its whitest.

If you choose not to come into our office for whitening but still want a brighter smile, then talk to us about our custom-made at-home whitening system. Unlike over-the-counter whitening kits, we make your whitening trays just to fit your smile, so that you get more even results.

Who is an ideal candidate for professional teeth whitening?

If you have yellow, dull teeth due to the foods and drinks you’ve consumed over the years, or stains that are a result of normal aging, professional teeth whitening can be a great option for you. Whether you choose to get in-office or at-home whitening, it’s up to you. Just keep in mind that professional teeth whitening can’t remove internal stains or whiten dental restorations such as crowns or fillings.

Don’t let yellowing teeth ruin your smile. It’s a quick and easy fix. Turn to Queens Professional Dental Care in Jackson Heights, NY, to get your smile radiant again.

Do you want that perfect, million-dollar smile? Dentists have a wide array of tools at their disposal for improving the look of your smile. Dr. Hassan Alamzad and Dr. Rihito Matsui at Queens Professional Dental Care, PC, in Jackson Heights, NY, offer a full range of dental services. Here are four dental services that can perfect your smile.

1. Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening methods include in-office bleaching and treatments which the individual carries out at home. For in-office bleaching, your dentist will combine a whitening solution with a special light to break up the stains on your teeth. At-home teeth whitening involves custom-made dental trays filled with a whitening solution that you can use at home. 

2. Dental Crowns

A crown is a type of dental restoration is placed over a tooth-- to improve its alignment and appearance and restore its shape, strength and size. Dental crowns are used to restore badly decayed, cracked, chipped, discolored, damaged and weakened. Dental crowns can be used to radically improve the appearance of your smile. 

3. Dental Bridges

A dental bridge involves creating a crown for the tooth on either side of the gap, with an artificial tooth in between. A dental bridge can improve the appearance of your smile. Porcelain dental bridges look great and match the natural teeth exceptionally well. A dental bridge will also prevent remaining teeth from shifting.

4. Dental Implants

Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jaw. Implants provide a strong foundation for permanent replacement teeth that are made to match your own teeth. Dental implants will fill in your smile's gaps and improve your appearance. Dental implants also prevent adjacent teeth from shifting, stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.
