Teeth Whitening in Manhattan
Teeth whitening is a simple cosmetic dental treatment that can make a dramatic difference in your smile. As we age, our teeth become yellower and develop stains, so a brighter smile can take years off of your appearance, restoring your confidence so you can smile proudly. At DDS Group, we offer both in-office bleaching and at-home bleaching options.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
For the most dramatic results in the shortest amount of time, choose in-office teeth whitening treatments. You’ll be able to achieve a smile that’s up to 8 shades brighter after a single one-hour appointment. We use a protective gel or rubber shield to protect your gums and soft tissue, then apply a carbamide peroxide bleaching agent to your teeth. A specialized light is used to enhance the effects of the bleaching gel for even more dramatic results.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
At-home teeth whitening treatments from a dentist shouldn’t be confused with the ones you can buy in stores or online—we offer a stronger, more effective whitening gel and customized whitening trays to hold the gel in place. We’ll provide you with instructions on how to use your whitening kit to achieve the results you want—this can range from using it a few hours a day to overnight, for four weeks or longer.
Frequently Asked Questions About Teeth Whitening
What is the best whitener for your teeth?
For most stains, in-office teeth whitening treatments are the best solution. They provide the best results in the shortest amount of time; because these treatments are performed by a dentist, there are more safeguards in place to ensure that you get the shade of white you want without causing tooth sensitivity.
Is teeth whitening bad for your teeth?
Many patients don’t get the results they want from store-bought whitening kits, so they use them longer than directed, resulting in tooth sensitivity and enamel loss. The benefit of professional teeth whitening from a dentist is that we ensure that your teeth bleaching is done safely, without causing any damage.
How can I whiten my teeth in one day?
If you need whiter teeth fast, in-office teeth whitening treatments are the best option. They’re the only treatment that can make a noticeable difference in your smile in such a short amount of time.
How long does teeth whitening last?
With good oral hygiene habits—brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day—and regular visits to the dentist, you can expect your teeth whitening treatment to last up to three years. That said, if you return to the habits that caused your stains and discoloration in the first place, your results will not last as long. Using our at-home whitening kit for touch-ups can help extend the amount of time needed between treatments.
How many teeth whitening sessions do you need?
Most patients only need a single in-office teeth whitening session to achieve the results they want.
