What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening uses a special whitening gel to remove stains from your teeth and help you achieve the shade of white you desire. It’s a simple, painless process that can produce dramatic whitening results after just a single treatment.

What causes teeth discoloration?

Even if you have exceptional dental hygiene, teeth staining can occur over time because of:

  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Cola
  • Tomato sauce
  • Berries
  • Dark juices
  • Popsicles
  • Some medications
  • Smoking
  • Older age

Regardless of the cause of staining, teeth whitening at Ardsley Dental Spa can drastically improve the appearance of your teeth and help you feel confident when you smile.

Is teeth whitening right for me?

To find out if teeth whitening is for you, and which type is best, Dr. Chaudhry reviews your oral health history and examines your gums and teeth. She might recommend you undergo digital dental X-rays using the Dexis system.

Dr. Chaudhry discusses your desired outcome, including the shade of white you prefer. She offers innovative Vident Easyshade computerized shade matching.

If you have tooth decay or gum disease, she can treat your condition prior to undergoing teeth whitening.

What happens during teeth whitening?

What to expect during teeth whitening depends on the type of whitening you choose.

In-office whitening

During in-office whitening, Dr. Chaudhry places whitening gel on trays over your teeth. She might use a special light to speed up the whitening process. After about 30-45 minutes, she removes the gel and you can enjoy whiter, brighter teeth and an aesthetically pleasing smile.

At-home whitening

With at-home whitening, you use custom-fit whitening trays and gel to whiten your teeth over time in several applications. You can achieve the shade of white teeth you desire from the comfort of home.

How can I keep my teeth white?

To keep your teeth as white as possible after in-office or at-home whitening procedures, limit foods and drinks that stain your teeth. Brush your teeth immediately after meals and don’t smoke. See Dr. Chaudhry and her team at least every six months for routine dental cleanings.

Don’t live with stained teeth that make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Schedule a teeth whitening appointment with Ardsley Dental Spa by phone or online today.
