Teeth Whitening

Stains will develop with age, poor dental habits, and consumption of dark colored food. With only a few teeth whitening treatments, we will reduce your stain damage dramatically here at Purchase Street Family Dental in Rye, New York. In-office teeth whitening produces fast and flawless results that are immediately effective to the appearance of your mouth. It is a safe process and can be considered more as a treatment than a procedure. We begin the process by inserting cheek reactors into your mouth to expose your most visible teeth. To avoid discomfort and sensitivity, we apply a protective coating on your teeth. The gel treatment whitens your teeth for intervals of 15-20 minutes; after your last gel application of your first treatment you will immediately see results. Depending on the shade of your teeth, you may need several whitening treatments before the most effective results are achieved.

Have a brighter and whiter smile by avoiding:

  • Coffee
  • Dark Colored Tea
  • Sodas Especially Cola
  • Some Wines
  • Smoking
