Much more than a cosmetic procedure, research shows that teeth whitening promotes a more confident smile, which encourages better self-esteem. There are many types of teeth whitening procedures available and during your first consultation, our Jackson Heights cosmetic dentist, Dr. Amit Sood, will explain the procedure and products he prefers to work with and then helps you decide what type of teeth whitening is best for your needs. Dr. Sood performs supervised teeth whitening customized to the goals of each particular patient. The whitening process can be done to reduce stained or discolored teeth, or simply provide our patients with a brighter, whiter smile. Dr. Sood can brighten your smile in just about one hour and, when properly maintained, the results can last for many years.
Most in-office procedures use a hydrogen peroxide paste and a high intensity light to speed up the bleaching chemical reaction. The procedure can actually whiten your teeth four to six shades lighter after only one sixty minute treatment. Dr. Sood also offers at-home teeth whitening systems, worn two hours a day or while you sleep, and your teeth will become their whitest in one or two weeks. Whether at-home or in-office, the strength of the whitening gels and the level of whiteness desired will also be discussed. If you should choose to go with an at-home system, our Jackson Heights cosmetic dentist, and our dedicated staff make themselves available for you all through the treatment period if you should have any concerns or questions. When supervised by Dr. Sood, teeth whitening procedures are considered safe and extremely effective.
Another effective procedure known in the field of dentistry is Discus Dental. This brand of products live up to the results they claim to achieve and among their line of successful products is BreathRx, a product that deals with bad breath. Our Jackson Heights cosmetic dentist is a firm believer in this ingenious product that combats bad breath by targeting the source. Most people believe that customary brushing and flossing is enough to combat decay and bad breath, but these are still not enough. The BreathRx system involves three basic steps that are very easy to complete. The products use to potent agents that attack the source and neutralize any odor. Alcohol and sugar free, the Discus Dental-developed BreathRx is geared towards warding off bacteria.
