How Teeth Whitening Works

Teeth whitening is an effective solution to remove surface stains caused by food, drinks, and tobacco. Our team uses professional-grade whitening gel in both our in-office and take-home solutions. We want to help you achieve the beautiful smile you've always wanted and work closely with you to determine which option is right for your desires and lifestyle. Both of our treatments are safe and will not damage tooth enamel when used as directed. What follows is a breakdown of what you can expect with our Manhattan teeth whitening options:

In-Office Whitening: We proudly use Philips Zoom whitening for our in-office process, and it is the most immediate whitening solution we offer. Our team will apply a specially formulated hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth and activate the whitening solution with a specialized light. This process will break down the hydrogen peroxide in the gel, causing oxygen to penetrate your enamel and dentin to lighten teeth.


Take-Home Whitening: Our take-home whitening kits provide a more gradual way to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your house. We will send you home with dental trays that are prefilled with whitening gel and ready to use at your convenience. Before you leave our office, we'll also make sure you fully understand the process and instructions for how to use this method successfully and safely. At-home whitening provides the flexibility needed to fit into any lifestyle.

What Causes Stained Teeth?

No matter the method you use to whiten your teeth, stains can reoccur over time. Our team works with you to determine the cause of your stained teeth so that you have the knowledge to make lifestyle changes that minimize tooth discoloration. Some of the biggest contributors to tooth discoloration include:

  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Failing to brush and floss regularly, along with avoiding your six-month dental visits, can lead to yellow teeth.
  • Staining Foods and Beverages: Foods like apples, potatoes, and dark berries can stain your teeth. Likewise, beverages such as red wine, colas, dark fruit juices, coffee, and tea can also darken your smile.
  • Tobacco Use: Smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco products can lead to significant staining of tooth enamel.

We can touch up your smile with teeth whitening anytime you feel you need it, but by avoiding stains in the first place, you keep your teeth whiter for longer. Should your teeth staining be intrinsic and untreatable by standard teeth whitening, we may be able to brighten the appearance of your smile with cosmetic procedures such as dental veneers.

4 Healthy Habits to Keep Your Smile Bright

Avoiding habits that stain your teeth is only one part of keeping your smile white and healthy. By implementing simple habits, you can prolong the effects of your whitening treatments. Some of these habits include:

  1. Brush or rinse your teeth after consuming dark foods or beverages.
  2. Quit or limit the use of tobacco products.
  3. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day.
  4. Visit our office for a thorough exam and cleaning every six months, or as often as recommended by our dentist.

Along with taking these steps, our dentist can recommend at-home dental products that help keep your teeth bright, such as whitening toothpaste and mouthwashes. Never hesitate to ask us any questions regarding your care. Our dentist is ready to give you the answers you need to feel confident.
