New York City residents run on caffeine to keep up with the fast-paced lifestyle of their city. Unfortunately, coffee is one of the main culprits of stained and discolored teeth. Sometimes, the whitening toothpaste you bought at the corner drugstore just doesn’t seem to do anything for you anymore, and you know it’s time to get serious. If you’re trying to reclaim your pre-coffee smile, consider Zoom! whitening or possibly porcelain veneers.
Why Zoom! Whitening?
Zoom! whitening is a quick and effective whitening system that takes only about one hour for treatment at a dentist’s office. You’ll walk in with unattractive, stained teeth and walk out with a glowing white smile that will be sure to turn heads. If you’d prefer to do the whitening in the convenience of your own home, Zoom! offers an at-home version that works just as well to whiten your teeth. However, the results will take a bit longer to show up when doing the job at home – typically about 10 to 14 days.
The Zoom! method is completely safe and effective. A whitening solution will be applied to your teeth, and a proprietary cool lamp will be used to activate the solution. After about one hour, you’ll be able to go on with your normal day with a smile whiter than you ever thought possible. The only side effect that may possibly arise is increased tooth sensitivity for a day or two. One of the best features of the Zoom! whitening system is that almost everyone experiences complete whitening results with just one Zoom! treatment.
When to Consider Porcelain Veneers
If whitening just isn’t enough for your teeth either because of intense staining or gaps, chips or other imperfections that are ruining your smile, you should consider porcelain veneers. These thin overlays are custom designed and molded to fit your teeth perfectly and cover any issues with your smile that you may be having. Porcelain veneers also benefit your smile by helping increase the strength of your teeth overall by providing a durable layer to their outsides. Not only will your teeth look better, but they also will feel better and be stronger.
