Have you been thinking about having your teeth whitened? Today teeth whitening has become one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures performed. This is because tooth whitening is a cost-effective and easy way for patients to achieve a much more attractive smile. If you would like to learn about the teeth whitening options we offer, come visit us at our dental office on Staten Island.
Our dental practice is DiBona & Scamardella Dental Studio. Our top-notch dentists are Dr. Karen DiBona and Dr. Mark Scamardella. When patients want to have their teeth whitened we are able to offer them several different options at our dental practice. Our dentist will first want to meet with you and determine what types of whitening and brightening results you are looking for. While our at-home procedure offers very dramatic results, you may still want to have your teeth whitening procedure performed in our office. Our dentist will want to meet with you and review your existing dental work to make sure you do not have any veneers or tooth-colored fillings that may interfere with getting optimal results from the whitening process. This is because only tooth enamel is whitened during teeth whitening in our dental office on Staten Island. Therefore, for some patients who want to have their teeth whitened we may need to make additional arrangements to redo tooth-colored fillings or exchange porcelain veneers after the whitening procedure is completed.
At our practice we also offer a take-home option which will allow patients to whiten their teeth in the privacy of their own home. This option does not provide the quick dramatic results that occur at our dental office. However, patients are very happy with the results that they do achieve over a matter of days at home. Often times the best tooth whitening treatment option for a patient totally depends on their personal preferences. Some patients may enjoy sitting in our dentist’s chair for an hour while their teeth are being whitened. Other patients would rather spend the time at home and have the procedure take place while they are either watching television, working on the computer, or spending time with family.
