What is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a fantastic, easy, non-invasive way to take years off your smile. With age, teeth discolor and become more yellow. They also become stained from foods such as red wine, coffee and tea. Whitening reverses this staining and discoloration.
Brooklyn Dental Studio offers in-office whitening and at-home whitening treatments. Our most popular whitening is a “deep whitening.” In this treatment, we combine two in-office treatments with at-home whitening. The results are dramatic and stable so you will not have to whiten again in the future. We offer two types of at-home whitening. Opalescence GO is a one size fits all solution. The second option is a custom made tray with refillable gel. This involves filling the custom made tray with whitening gel and wearing it for about 30 minutes.
Can I whiten my crowns?
Whitening does not work on composites or porcelain restorations. Patients who would like to whiten their teeth but have existing dental work must understand that these restorations will not whiten and will likely need to be replaced. Likewise, if you need a new restoration and are unhappy with the shade of your teeth, we recommend you whiten before having a restoration placed.
Will I get sensitivity?
Our Hygienist is an expert in whitening using our Philips Zoom system. Some people are prone to sensitivity, however she is able to customize your treatment, for the best, most comfortable outcome.
You can’t escape a dentist visit, but you can make it as pleasant as possible. Dr. Wolfe was patient w my sensitive teeth, provided detailed treatment plans, and was generally helpful. I was very happy with the outcome of my whitening procedure, and they helped respond to all my questions quickly. The team was helpful. The location is very convenient – right near borough Hall – so easy to get there and back. Nice digs.Sarah S.
