Teeth Whitening

A dazzling bright and white smile makes a world of difference to our Long Island tooth whitening patients. If you are generally happy with your smile, but wish your teeth were whiter, we can help.

Tooth whitening is one of the most popular and common cosmetic dental procedures. It's relatively easy and produces dramatic results in a short period of time for most people. There are many factors that contribute to staining or discoloration of your teeth like:

  • Smoking
  • Cola drinks
  • Coffee
  • Red wine
  • Dark berries
  • Use of the antibiotic tetracycline in younger years
  • Recent use of prescribed antibiotic medications or rinses

Sometimes discoloration is genetic or due to aging, injury and excessive use of fluoride. Whatever the cause of your discoloration, you owe it to yourself to come talk to us and see how we can help you. Dr. Spinner uses several methods of teeth whitening and will let you know which method will work best for your situation.

ZOOM! Whitening
This a fast, in-office procedure uses a translucent gel that is brushed on the teeth and then activated by a high intensity light. Typically, the treatment consists of three 20-minute sessions. From the initial preparation to the finish takes about 90 minutes.

Bleach Tray Whitening
Bleach tray whitening is performed at home, using custom trays made specially for you in the office, then used nightly to achieve your desired shade of white. Bleaching is best suited for those with mild discoloration or staining.

How white is white?
The most common question we hear about tooth whitening is how white will my teeth get. Unfortunately, that's a very hard question to answer because every person's teeth are different. The good news is that Dr. Spinner will be monitoring your progress all along and will make sure that your results, while stunning, still look natural.

If you're planning any extensive cosmetic dental work, like Porcelain Veneers, it's a good idea to have your teeth whitened beforehand. Because the color of the veneers is matched to the other teeth not receiving veneers, it's important to have your natural teeth the color you want them before the veneers are manufactured. Or you might consider having your teeth whitened as part of an Extreme Smile Makeover.
