Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of our patients with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. Our Jackson Heights cosmetic dentists are absolute experts in the field of teeth whitening, successfully aiding thousands of patients reverse the staining of your enamel from things like caffeine and tobacco, or natural aging. While some commercially available "whitening toothpastes" can be semi-effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter, nothing compares to receiving professional teeth whitening with your Jackson Heights dentist
at Best Care Family Dental.
Food particles are naturally attracted to a tooth's enamel by a certain protein. Products like coffee and tea, berries and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances. One type of stain-caused by traumatic injuries, medications and fluorosis-actually begins inside the tooth; brushing and flossing don't help. Another type of stain-one that can be more easily attacked by brushing, flossing and rinsing-is caused by external factors such as foods.
Whitening agents actually change the color of your teeth, but only are effective on certain types of stains. Bleaching agents are not as effective on pitted or badly discolored teeth, or on restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding and tooth-colored fillings (porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be more appropriate in this case).
Professional whitening performed at Best Care Family Dental is considered to be the most effective and safest method. When done properly, tooth whitening can last as long as five years. Over-the-counter whitening systems are somewhat effective as long as they are monitored and directions followed closely.
