Are yellow or discolored teeth making you feel self-conscious? Do you have an important event coming up and want to look your best?
Professional teeth whitening is a quick, safe, and effective way to dramatically enhance your smile.
Dr. Louis J. Buono offers in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments at his Long Island, NY, practice.
In-Office or At-Home Which Is the Best Option for You?
This whitening option allows patients to brighten their smiles in the comfort of their homes. The whitening system comes in a variety of bleaching concentrations and flavors to suit every need and preference. Dr. Buono will take an impression of your teeth to create custom whitening trays. You can then load your whitening trays with 1/3 to 1/2 of the pre-loaded syringe and secure the tray in your mouth like a retainer. It is possible to see results after one use, but full results can be seen in about one week.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening
The Zoom! teeth whitening system is a prescription-grade bleaching product that can brighten your teeth by up to eight shades in as little as one hour. This in-office treatment is best for patients who wish to whiten their smiles quickly. Dr. Buono will first prepare your teeth for whitening by protecting the gums and soft tissues. Next, he will apply a layer of whitening gel to your teeth. Finally, he will shine a blue LED lamp to activate the gel. These steps will be repeated until your teeth have reached the desired shade.
Correcting Deeper Stains Through Cosmetic Dentistry
Though teeth whitening only lightens surface stains, our Garden City practice offers other cosmetic dentistry options like porcelain veneers and dental bonding to address deep, intrinsic stains on a single tooth or several teeth. Contact our practice to find out which solution will meet your needs.
