Teeth WhiteningDiscover how teeth whitening in Mount Kisco could turn your smile around.

A whiter smile can be yours in no time when you get professional teeth whitening from our Mount Kisco, NY, family dentist, Dr. Carl Tegtmeier. Sure, you may be able to whiten your smile with simple at-home options; however, if you want a visibly whiter smile in about one hour and you don’t want to wait weeks for results then in-office whitening is the best option for you.

Maybe you have a big job interview coming up or your wedding day is fast approaching and you realized that your smile just isn’t as white as you would like it to be. That’s okay; this is where our Mount Kisco cosmetic dentist comes in.

In about one hour we can get smiles several shades whiter. You’ll see the difference immediately and most people get the results they want in just one teeth whitening session with us. It’s the perfect option for someone dealing with nasty yellow stains caused by foods, drinks, smoking, or age.

There are a few things that make professional in-office whitening different from over-the-counter methods. For one, the whitening gel we use contains a much higher percentage of the active whitening ingredient (usually either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide). For example, over-the-counter whitening products usually contain anywhere from 3 to 10 percent while professionally applied whitening gels use anywhere from 25 to 40 percent. So, what does this mean for you? This means, that the whitening gel we use in our office doesn’t have to remain on your teeth for more than one hour to get incredible and visible results.

In as quickly as one whitening treatment your smile could be five shades whiter (or more). Those with yellowing teeth will see the best results; however, those with more deep-set stains caused by smoking may require more than one whitening session. How many whitening sessions you may need is something that we can discuss during your consultation. Of course, if you are looking for fast and effective results there is no better option than in-office whitening treatment from a dental professional.

Don’t let a dull, stained smile keep you from feeling confident in your appearance. Getting a radiant smile is easy when you turn to our Mount Kisco, NY, dental practice. Call us today to schedule your cosmetic consultation with us.
