A True Holiday Bonus: Professional Teeth Whitening

professional teeth whitening gift dr michael j weiWant to give your cast, crew, office mates, contractors, or valued employees a truly memorable bonus this year? Give them the gift of cosmetic dentistry – specifically, professional teeth whitening. When you live in Manhattan, your appearance matters no matter what industry you work in. If you’re the boss, consider shelving the chocolates this year and giving teeth whitening treatments instead.

Pick the Right Kind of Whitening Treatment

Now, we’re not suggesting you run to the pharmacy and buy a few boxes of white strips or other whitening products and toss them in a gift bag with some tissue paper. These items might brighten teeth in a pinch, but they certainly aren’t long-lasting or super-effective. (And they could be mildly insulting to the recipient.) Gift your crew with a whitening treatment from your favorite Manhattan cosmetic dentist though and you’ll endear them to you forever.

Understand the Power

Professional teeth whitening is done using incredibly powerful, professional-grade bleaching products. This is the stuff that only dentists can get their hands on, like carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide. These true stain-removing agents will blast through the build-up and built-in stains that tooth enamel collects over time. Instead of just sloughing off surface stains, in-office whitening really gets down into the tooth and breaks up the yuck to produce brighter teeth.

Give Them Options

There are two types of professional teeth whitening – in-office treatments and take-home kits – and plenty of variations within the categories. Both versions are excellent, but both do not suit every patient. Allow your employees to choose the one that satisfies them. Some people will jump at the opportunity to whiten their teeth in an hour at their NYC dentist’s office. Others will prefer to do the whitening on their own time. Here’s what’s available:

  • Rembrandt Sapphire is an in-office whitening that turns teeth from dingy to dazzling.
  • Opalescence Boost Whitening from Ultradent is done by your dentist and no light is needed to get the bleaching to take effect.
  • KOR Whitening is a powerful in-office treatment that actually makes your smile sparkle.
  • ZOOM! in-office teeth-whitening makes teeth up to eight times whiter in about an hour.
  • Take-home teeth-whitening kits are customized to your mouth and take about two weeks of at-home treatment time to get the same results as in-office whitening.

Perfection Is an Illusion

There is such a thing as a smile makeover perfectionist when it comes to selecting the right NYC cosmetic dentist, but a patient’s teeth don’t have to be perfect to be a good candidate for professional teeth whitening. They simply need to have good oral health. The illusion of teeth whitening is that it makes even flawed teeth look great because white teeth look great even if they’re gapped or crooked.
