With Brandon Stanton, the famous Humans of New York (HONY) photographer, roaming the streets of New York City, armed with his camera to hunt down interesting passerbyers, you’re only concern is that you won’t be able to give him a big smile—because you are self-conscious of your yellowing teeth. Yeah, you might be embarrassed by this shallow thought, since HONY is much more concerned about the individual’s soul rather than his teeth enamel, but you’ve been seriously thinking about teeth whitening for some time now.
Let’s be serious:yellowing teeth is an important concern. Whether you’re still in the exciting youthful years of the early 20s, or you’re over 50, a beautiful smile is important to one’s self-confidence. Whether you’re a coffy drinker or not, let’s face it, a teeth-whitening procedure is usually needed to keep our whites pearly as we.
YELLOWING TEETH: THE CAUSES
There are many reasons for teeth discoloration. Drinks like coffee, colas, tea, and wines can yellow your teeth. It could also be your genetic disposition; if yellow teeth runs in the family, then do not be surprised if your teeth quickly yellow. Fruits, like apples and blueberries can stain teeth as can tobacco and certain medicines. And let’s not forget our inevitable aging. A child can also have yellow teeth due to excessive fluoride, like swallowing toothpaste. Certain illnesses, poor oral hygiene, or enamel trauma can also contribute to teeth discoloration.
SOLUTION: TEETH WHITENING
Of course we cannot control or avoid the numerous factors that cause teeth discoloration. Especially if you’re a coffee lover or if yellow teeth runs in the family. Do not deprive yourself of good things in life by avoiding relatively harmless things that can cause teeth discoloration. Simply set an appointment with a dentist to help assess your teeth and restore their whiteness.
One very trusted New York dentist is Dr. Moche, whose office in 25 West 54th Street and who can communicate in English, Japanese, Spanish, and Hebrew to accommodate his patients.Dr. Moche has more than 30 years in cosmetic and restorative dentistry and uses conventional and Zoom teeth whitening methods that effectively heals his patients’ teeth discoloration and help them achieve bright pearly whites.
There are several methods that can cure teeth discoloration. You have to keep in mind, though, that not everyone is qualified for teeth whitening. Usually, teeth whitening is ideal for those who have relatively healthy teeth and gums. If you have major teeth fillings or have undergone a specific kind of teeth restoration, then whitening treatments might not work. There are also gum diseases that would make a patient unqualified for teeth whitening.
Therefore, it is highly recommended that you visit a dentist for the necessary assessment. Request to schedule a consultation appointment, so the dentist can assess which teeth whitening option is best for you. A veteran dentist will expertly decide if you are a candidate for teeth whitening and will precisely pinpoint the best treatment for you. It is crucial to pick a dentist who has decades of trusted practice and experience to help you achieve your goal, like Dr. Moche.
TEETH WHITENING METHODS: WHAT TO EXPECT
There are numerous ways to whiten your teeth. There are over-the-counter whitening products, like gels, special toothpastes, strips, rinses, tray-based whiteners, and in-office bleaching that you can purchase.Your dentist will advise you on this.
Dr. Moche provides both conventional and Zoom whitening methods to whiten your teeth. Conventional means that the dentist will supervise your at-home bleaching system. The Zoom whitening procedure, on the other hand, uses an ultraviolet light to assist a peroxide gel in whitening your teeth. The Zoom whitening procedure takes three 15-minute sessions, lightening the discoloration of enamel and dentin that is guaranteed to turn your teeth bright and white within an hour.
Again, it is advisable to visit and consult with a dentist first in order to identify which procedure is perfect for you. A wrong whitening method could cause side effects like tooth sensitivity, especially to cold foods and beverages, or gum irritation. Worse, if you’re not a candidate for teeth whitening, then you must know this beforehand to prevent health problems.
If you’re in New York City, or reside/work in Manhattan, contact Dr. Moche’s office and schedule a teeth-whitening consultation.
