Whitening

whitening patientIf you would like to smile more confidently, knowing your teeth are their whitest and brightest, you might want to consider dentist-supervised teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a safe, effective and lasting way to lighten most people’s smiles.

There are several methods available today to whiten teeth effectively, including a new technique that Dr. Clemenza has devised. Simply talk with us about the criteria for best results, how whitening could impact your particular situation and which procedure will best suit your needs.

Whitening treatments are most successful in removing yellow, brown or orange tinges. However, dark gray tones from smoking or prolonged use of certain antibiotics will not whiten as dramatically. Tooth-colored fillings and porcelain crowns actually do not whiten at all. Finally, sensitive teeth, teeth with periodontal disease and teeth with worn enamel typically do not respond well to whitening.

After significant research, Dr. Clemenza has discovered that there’s a brand new treatment that has been called the next evolution in teeth whitening. Extreme Bleaching is so effective that even severely stained teeth that wouldn’t respond to traditional methods can now go brilliantly white. Extreme Bleaching even whitens teeth stained from certain antibiotics such as tetracycline. Until now most of these cases were considered beyond hope. Not anymore. Not satisfied with the limitations of commercial whitening methods on these difficult cases, Dr. Clemenza is proud to be among the first dentists in the area to offer Extreme Bleaching.

We also offer ZOOM! (Go to the website.) Zoom whitening was shown on the popular reality television show “Extreme Makeover.” The method is safe, effective and can be done in one hour.

Supervised at-home methods produce results via daily sessions over one or more weeks of wearing a customized gel-filled tray appliance. Afterwards, you can best preserve your new, brighter smile by limiting habits such as smoking and drinking coffee or tea. Make sure to ask Dr. Clemenza or her staff about the whitening options.
