Professional Teeth Whitening in Albany, NY

Take Your Smile From Dull to Dazzling

Even if you take proper care of your oral hygiene, it can still be a challenge to keep your teeth pearly white. With all of the teeth-staining foods and habits around us in our daily lives, our teeth can be left looking a little lackluster. Fortunately, Dr. Thomas features professional teeth whitening at her Albany dental practice to give patients a smile that shines bright.

Discover if teeth whitening is the cosmetic solution for you by reading our patient-friendly guide below.

Common Causes of Stained Teeth

There are multiple factors that contribute to teeth becoming stained, discolored, or yellowed over time. Common causes include:

  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Using tobacco products
  • Eating blueberries, pomegranates, or other dark fruits
  • Drinking red wine, soda, coffee, and tea
  • Taking certain medications
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Poor oral hygiene

What Is Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is an easy, effective solution for brightening your smile. Whitening products contain bleaching agents. These bleaches break stains into smaller pieces, which makes the color less concentrated, bringing the shine back to your teeth.

Dr. Thomas uses the in-office ZOOM! teeth whitening treatment, a quick chairside procedure that will have your smile glowing in less than one hour!

Our ZOOM! Whitening System

ZOOM! Whitening is a widely used bleaching process that lightens the discoloration of enamel and dentin. During your ZOOM! in-office appointment, we’ll use a combination of dental lasers and gel to lighten deep stains or any discoloration on your teeth. Once the gel is applied, we’ll use a low-intensity light to break down the gel on your enamel and remove the discoloration.

This combination allows us to provide our patients with teeth that are 6 to 10 shades brighter in about one hour. The best part about ZOOM! teeth whitening is that it’s pain-free, and you get to choose your desired shade of white.
