What is teeth whitening?

At a time when looks are everything, we understand why the color of your teeth is a major cosmetic concern. Fortunately, Madison Avenue Dentists in New York, NY can help you tackle this concern with professional-strength teeth whitening. Although there are dozens of store-bought whitening alternatives, we proudly offer a product that has shown to be superior to most over-the-counter remedies currently available. Our whitening treatments will whiten your teeth by quite a few shades, helping you keep your beautiful results for much longer than alternative choices. We use professional-strength solutions that do the job, reaching below the surface of the teeth to treat deep stains instead of consumer-level options that only scratch the surface (quite literally) and provide a brighter shade of yellow at best.

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

Yellowed and stained teeth can be distracting and embarrassing from your otherwise healthy smile. Here at Madison Avenue Dentists, our New York, NY patients who pursue teeth whitening are interested in a number of benefits, including:

  • Boosted self-esteem with a smile that you feel confident in
  • Pain-free, quick treatment sessions
  • Long-lasting results that you will notice the effects quickly
  • The ability to add treatments until you reach your desired results

When comparing the pros and cons of professional-strength vs. over-the-counter whitening options, you should think about what you are really attempting to do. If your smile has been white your entire life and only recently is starting to become discolored, a grocery-store purchased kit could create temporary results. When your teeth have darker stains, you may be an ideal candidate for professional-grade teeth whitening at Madison Avenue Dentists. If you would like home touch-ups, Stella can also offer take-home customized trays which can be used in conjunction with our whitening products for upkeep.

What can I expect during my teeth whitening treatment?

What to expect for the whitening treatments depends on the procedure chosen by our professionals at Madison Avenue Dentists. Since our practice provides a few treatments for successful and high-quality teeth whitening, the procedure selected for you will be decided upon after a consultation where your aesthetic goals and lifestyle will be discussed and taken into consideration. In most cases, your professional teeth whitening procedures will be carried out in under one hour through the use of a prescription-strength whitening gel, along with the technology of a light system that immediately whitens the teeth several shades. For more information, contact us in our New York, NY office to schedule an appointment.

Following either procedure, you might experience sensitivity to hot or cold food, but this typically dissipates within a few days. As with all dental procedures, routine dental exams with Stella are important and crucial to preserving results. These examinations will assess everything from gum and soft tissue health to the state of each tooth. When the whitening procedure is completed, we usually advise coming back for touch-ups a couple times annually, along with professional cleanings that will help your oral wellbeing. Keep in mind that just because your teeth are white does not necessarily indicate that they are healthy. That's why routine examinations are important. You'll also be provided careful instructions pertaining to what food should and should not be consumed in the future, like red wine and coffee.

Will dental insurance cover teeth whitening?

Because teeth whitening is deemed optional and cosmetic, it isn't commonly covered by dental insurance providers. Nonetheless, our expert billing staff at Madison Avenue Dentists can assess your dental coverage to see whether any portion of your dental appointment is covered by your dental insurance to lower the cost of your treatment. If you do not carry dental insurance, we will be delighted to speak with you about our payment choices in addition to the potential for receiving low-interest medical financing. Schedule an appointment with us in our New York, NY office today to get started.
