When I was a senior in high school, I got hit with a lacrosse stick and it damaged my front tooth. I had to get a root canal and cosmetic dentistry work. When it happened, my mom was very very upset. She knew I needed to go to somebody who knew what they were doing, and Dr. Auster was it. As I got older, I realized how much of an effect damaged teeth could have had on me. Other than that I never thought twice about having cosmetic work – it felt like my real teeth! Dr. Auster’s work actually lasted me 20 years. Finally, this year, when I turned 40, I needed it redone. This time, I had whitening before I had my cosmetic dentistry and I saw a huge difference.
Everyone here is friendly, kind, nice, and patient. Having surgery on your mouth is never an easy thing but they always make you feel very comfortable and they give you an idea of what will happen next. If you want to listen to music, or watch TV to keep your mind off the procedure, you can. In fact, before you even get in the chair, they start making sure you are comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Auster again and again. In fact, I’m going to send my husband to him. He likes coffee and my four year old recently said, “Hey daddy your teeth are getting yellow.” He has beautiful teeth but he needs the whitening done.
Treatment Options: Teeth Whitening in Rockland County, NY
During your consultation, our team will work with you to determine if an in-office or take-home teeth whitening is right for you. Tooth whitening can be performed singularly or as part of your smile makeover plan. If you receive in-office whitening, your treatment must be performed on clean teeth. We will conduct a thorough dental cleaning to ensure your teeth are plaque-free and debris-free.
It is important to note that teeth whitening is only performed on structurally healthy teeth. So if you have any complex dental issues, we will treat those before focusing on any cosmetic concerns. It is imperative to build a healthy smile from the foundation up.
In-office Teeth Whitening
We can complete in-office teeth whitening in just an hour-long dentist office visit. The dentist will apply a whitening gel to the teeth and activate it with a special no-heat light penetrating the tooth enamel. We will repeat this in three 15-minute increments. In the end, you will have achieved a brighter, whiter smile.
Take-home Teeth Whitening
We can create custom teeth whitening kits that you can use at home. Receiving your whitening kit will require two visits to our dentistry office. During the first visit, we will take impressions of your teeth to create your custom whitening trays. Once your trays are ready, we will call you back to our office so you can retrieve your trays.
During this visit, we will discuss the specifics of your treatment. We may need to set up reoccurring trays to deliver directly to you.
Professional Teeth Whitening FAQs
How long does teeth whitening at the dentist last?
Results from professional teeth whitening at the dentist can last up to 3 years! You can ensure your results will last by following a strict tooth-brushing routine. Of course, some habits will affect the length of your results. Smoking tobacco and drinking wine, coffee, and soda can reduce the effects. No teeth whitening treatment is permanent.
Will teeth whitening damage my teeth?
No. Whitening teeth at the dentist is the safest way to brighten your smile. Dr. Auster and your dental care team only use the safest materials for your mouth. We will ensure you get the best care possible and provide follow-up treatments if necessary.
Will my teeth be sensitive after teeth whitening?
There is a chance that your teeth will be temporarily sensitive for a day or two after the teeth whitening treatment. Tooth sensitivity after teeth whitening is a temporary symptom. Some patients report no sensitivity. We recommend using toothpaste made for sensitive teeth for a couple of days after your whitening treatment.
How long do I have to be cautious after teeth whitening?
The first 48 hours after whitening treatment are crucial for staining. When we whiten your teeth, we open up the pores and bleach what’s inside. They remain open for this amount of time after the whitening process is complete. Take extra care to avoid things like wine or coffee that can stain your teeth. If you must drink a staining beverage, do so through a straw to lessen the amount of time that it stays on your teeth.
How many shades of white can I whiten my teeth?
Professional whitening can make your teeth up to nine shades whiter. However, most patients see results that range from three to seven shades. Different people respond to whitening treatment in different ways. Your teeth may be more responsive to whitening treatment than someone else’s.
Am I a good candidate for teeth whitening?
First, we don’t whiten teeth for children under 14. Their mouths and teeth are growing and changing, and we don’t want to interfere. Professional teeth whitening is the ideal solution compared to over-the-counter whitening options. However, some discoloration is resistant to traditional whitening treatment. In these cases, we’ll work with you to determine an alternative.
