The importance of a white, bright smile
Teeth whitening can quickly brighten your smile, removing stains and discoloration and creating a more youthful and healthy looking smile. The benefits of whiter teeth include:
Regain your confidence
Tooth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment and one of its primary functions is to restore your confidence in your smile. A whiter, brighter and healthier looking smile allows our personality to shine through, giving us a reason to smile.
Restore your youthful appearance
Nearly all of us have stained teeth, whether it is from drinking coffee, wine, soda or even smoking; our teeth are stained easily. Thanks to teeth whitening treatments we can now remove most stains from the teeth. Another great benefit of stain removal is that it can help you look younger. White teeth are associated with youth—just by whitening your smile you can look more youthful
Studies have found that people who have had their teeth whitened are more inclined to a rigorous hygiene routine in order to keep their teeth looking white; no one wants to pay for teeth whitening treatment and then neglect the health of their teeth. By looking after the health of your teeth you are less likely to get oral problems such as gum disease and tooth decay.
The treatment involves coating the teeth with a paste-like substance containing concentrations of carbamide peroxide that can only be prescribed by a dentist. This is then activated by a light source, with the gums and soft tissues totally protected. Touch up treatments which are included in the initial fee can be done at home after 4 to 6 months. Tooth whitening is safe and provides exceptional results.
Simple and effective way to achieve a whiter brighter smile
During your consultation here at Elite Dental of Staten Island, we will take an impression of your teeth that will be used to create your customised trays. You will be provided with the bleaching agent and shown how to apply this to your trays so that you can feel confident during your at home treatment—generally we recommend wearing your trays each night for two weeks to see optimal whitening results.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Even if you practice good oral hygiene and take care of your teeth as best you can, it is unfortunately inevitable that you will notice some yellowing and discoloration over time. Besides aging, there are a number of lifestyle factors that can have a significant impact on the color of your teeth. Consuming dark colored foods and drinks, such as coffee, red wine, soda, tea, berries, and soy sauce, could all contribute to discoloration and staining. Other factors that can cause discoloration include the use of tobacco and some medications.
If you’re interested in a whitening treatment, we recommend that you come in for a consultation first. This will allow us to determine whether you are suited to the treatment, and if so, which treatment best suits your needs. This also gives us a chance to discuss your specific goals. If you go ahead with the treatment, we will take an impression of your teeth, which will then be used to create customized trays for you. We will give you a specially formulated bleaching agent and show you how to apply it to your trays. You can then take the trays home to wear every night for around two weeks.

The treatment works by removing stains and discoloration in a fairly short period of time, and helps patients to achieve a brighter, more youthful looking smile.
