Set Off That Summer Tan with Teeth Whitening

The lazy, hazy days of summer are here, but that doesn’t mean it’s OK to get lazy with your appearance. One great way to dazzle this season: Make sure your smile looks its best. Professional teeth whitening takes just an hour for dramatic results.

Summertime is here, and with it, days of relaxing in the sun with friends and family. It’s enough to make anyone smile — unless you have yellow, dull, dingy teeth. 

But don’t despair! If dingy teeth are keeping you from strutting your stuff this summer, you can turn it all around with just a single visit to our office at Cosmetic and Implant Dental Studio by Dr. Dorian Cucereanu, DDS, in the Central Park South area of Manhattan in New York City.

Dorian Cucereanu, DDS, is a leading provider of Zoom!® custom whitening treatments, helping women and men of all ages look younger, healthier, and — yes — sexier. Here’s how just one Zoom! treatment can provide you with the perfect summer accessory — a gorgeous smile.

Zoom! whitening: How it works

Zoom! whitening treatment uses a special whitening gel formulated for in-office use. During your treatment, Dr. Cucereanu applies the gel to each tooth, carefully ensuring every visible surface is covered. A special lip guard keeps your lips out of the way and prevents the gel from being wiped off.

Zoom! is light activated, so after applying the gel to your teeth, Dr. Cucereanu uses a special light applicator, directing it at your tooth surfaces to allow the gel to penetrate more deeply. The entire process takes just about an hour.

Afterward, Dr. Cucereanu removes the gel, revealing your dazzling, fresh smile. Zoom! results last a long time — typically more than a year. Best of all, even though Zoom! is strong enough to lift away deep stains, it’s safe and gentle for your teeth, so you can have the treatment repeated whenever you need it.

In-office whitening vs. drugstore kits

Why bother going to the dentist for whitening treatments when you can just buy a kit from your local drugstore and DIY your way to a dazzling smile? Simple: Over-the-counter bleaching kits just can’t give you the results you’re looking for. Why? Here are three big reasons.

Less whitening

First, the whitening solutions contained in the kits you buy at a store (or online) aren’t as strong or effective as the solutions Dr. Cucereanu uses for his patients. Zoom! gel is uniquely designed to lift away years of staining and yellowing for whiter, brighter, more beautiful results in just a single, one-hour treatment.

Increased risk of irritation

That brings us to the second downside of DIY kits: You need to commit to days or weeks of treatments. Not only can that be really time-consuming, but it can also dramatically increase your risks of tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. 

Inconsistent coverage

The one-size-fits-all approach of DIY kits is another reason why they offer inferior results compared to office treatments. Whether they use trays or strips, these kits don’t get into all the curves of your teeth, which means your smile won’t look as bright and fresh. The Zoom! system reaches every contour of your tooth surface for more consistent results you’ll be glad to show off.

One more benefit: Prior to an in-office whitening treatment, Dr. Cucereanu can clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar that could prevent you from getting the best results. With a home kit, plaque and tartar prevent the bleaching agent from penetrating, leading to more disappointing results.

Enjoy a more dazzling smile — in one visit

Bottom line: It doesn’t really matter what season it is — whiter, brighter teeth are always in style. To start enjoying your sexier, more dazzling smile, book an appointment online or over the phone with Dr. Dorian Cucereanu today.
