Lighten Up In White Plains
Hello! Today’s dental article is for NYC people with stained teeth. Do you think your teeth are too stained for teeth whitening to have any effect? Think again. At The Dental Design Center – Ira J. Handschuh, D.D.S. in White Plains, we are whitening smiles for patients with both intrinsic and extrinsic stains.
Extrinsic stains are caused by dark colored foods and drinks, smoking, and normal aging. The Dental Design Center – Ira J. Handschuh, D.D.S. cosmetic dentistry patients with extrinsic stains achieve great results from both in-office and take-home teeth whitening systems.
Intrinsic stains form on the inside but can be seen from the outside. Tetracycline, excessive fluoride, trauma, and aging can cause intrinsic staining for unfortunate White Plains dentistry patients. Though these stains are harder to remove, many NYC patients with intrinsic staining can whiten their teeth with take-home whitening kits. The process often takes longer, but with persistence, intrinsic stains can be lightened.
In addition to teeth whitening, we provide a full menu of cosmetic dental procedures at our White Plains office. With porcelain veneers, you can correct the shape of your teeth in addition to brightening the color. If you are missing a tooth, a dental implant may be the solution. Call 914-574-2558 for a dental implant or smile design consultation.
If you are embarrassed by a less-than-sparkling smile, let the team of dental professionals at The Dental Design Center – Ira J. Handschuh, D.D.S. help you lighten up.

Do Whitestrips Work?
If you have visited the toothpaste aisle at your White Plains WalMart, you have probably noticed dozens of products that claim to whiten your teeth. A few years ago, the only over-the-counter tooth whitening options in NYC were whitening toothpastes and Crest Whitestrips. Now there is a wide variety of products at every drugstore counter in the NYC area.
Whitening rinses are similar to mouthwashes. They kill bacteria, freshen breath and may help remove plaque. Whitening rinses, however, contain tooth-whitening ingredients not found in mouthwashes. Manufacturers advise taking a mouthful of the rinse and letting it slosh around on your teeth for one minute twice a day. Though this method is simple, many users never notice a lightening of their teeth. This is probably because the rinse does not touch your teeth long enough to truly whiten them.
The whitening strips you can buy in NYC grocery stores have a couple of drawbacks. Though they contain a bleaching agent, it is much less potent than those used in New Castle dental offices. Another problem is that they do not whiten between teeth because the strips only touch the front surface. Though it is possible to remove stains, it can take months to see any whitening. By that point, you have probably spent more money than you would have if you’d have chosen the professional whitening system at your White Plains dental clinic.
Teeth Whitening Gels
Whitening gels are painted onto teeth with a small brush. One problem with whitening gels is that they only stick to dry teeth. If any saliva gets on the teeth during treatment, the gel is more likely to slide off.
If you are serious about dramatically whitening your teeth, the safest, quickest, and most affordable system is at your White Plains dental office.
The Dental Design Center is located at 280 Dobbs Ferry Road in White Plains. Our phone number is 914-574-2558. You can find more information on our White Plains dental website online at http://www.dentaldesigncenter.com/practice/.

White Plains Dynamic Dental Duo: Teeth Whitening and Veneers
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in White Plains and throughout New York.
Numerous ads for whitening products in our local White Plains media contain terms such as ‘white brite’, ’22 carbamide peroxide’ and ‘peroxide teeth’. They look tempting, but how do you separate tooth bleaching fact from fiction?
First, and especially for our local White Plains New York patients, we recommend talking to Ira Handschuh DDS at The Dental Design Center at our White Plains office. Just because teeth whitening products are readily available in Scarsdale and Hartsdale, it doesn’t mean they are all safe or appropriate for every person. Getting a professional opinion is a good first step.
Don’t be fooled by smile whitening hype and risk damage, especially if you need tetracycline teeth whitening. If you have existing cosmetic dental work such as crowns, bonding, partial dentures or bridge work, it is especially important to talk to a NYC dental professional about worry free teeth whitening.
Teeth whitening kits are not the only way to quickly improve your smile in Scarsdale. Many of your Hartsdale and New Castle neighbors have benefited from porcelain veneers. We can help you decide on which is best for you.
Veneers are sometimes called ‘instant orthodontics’ because they can correct tooth misalignment and gaps as well as provide instant teeth whitening.
Porcelain veneers can also fix chipped teeth and cover stains. The vast majority of White Plains veneer recipients are extremely pleased with the results. Call today for a cosmetic consult!
