One of the most common requests we get at Robert Matlach Dental in Huntington NY is for teeth whitening, one of our cosmetic dentistry services.
Everyone, it seems, would like to have teeth that are whiter. Our teeth tend to grow dull or get stained as the years go by: it’s just an unfortunate fact of life.
There are three types of stains on teeth:
- Extrinsic stains are on the surface of teeth. They’re the easiest to remove, and are caused by things like coffee, tea, wine, cola, smoking and the aging process.
- Intrinsic stains form beneath a tooth’s enamel. They can be lightened but it may take a bit longer. They may be the result of trauma, tetracycline antibiotics, infection, or other factors.
- Combination stains may be a mix of both intrinsic and extrinsic stains.
We offer KöR® teeth whitening trays, which surpass any over-the-counter whitening products and can brighten your smile permanently. It’ll even be resistant to coffee and tea stains!
At Robert Matlach Dental in Huntington NY we’ve improved countless smiles with teeth whitening. Patients from North Bay, East Smithtown, and South Melville also come to our office for other cosmetic dentistry options. Contact us today!
