In most dental offices, the hygienists do the Zoom!™ treatments. At Drs. Boyd, Dr. Justin, Dr. Ned, and Dr. Andrew do the treatments themselves. It’s just another way the Drs. Boyd’s New York City dental office sets itself apart from other dental offices. As a bit of background, over the years our teeth succumb to two types of stains: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic stains are on the enamel surface of your teeth and are usually caused by dark-colored foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, cola, chocolate, tomato sauce, soy sauce, strawberries, blueberries, and more. Additionally, smoking and chewing tobacco as well as normal wear and tear also contribute to extrinsic staining. Intrinsic staining forms inside your tooth in the dentin layer beneath the enamel. These stains are frequently the result of the natural aging process, traumatic injury, certain medications such as tetracycline, some forms of chemotherapy, and fluorosis, which is spotting on the teeth that’s caused by ingesting excessive amounts of fluoride when the teeth formed.
An appointment for teeth whitening at Drs. Boyd takes about 90 minutes. With Zoom!™ in-office teeth whitening, you can quickly, easily, and affordably have a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter. Additionally, the Drs. Boyd NYC’s Top-Rated Dentist Since 1930 offer complimentary trays to use whitening gel at home to enhance the in-office Zoom!™ treatment. The doctor may recommend you return in two to three weeks for a second one-hour session to boost the final whitening result. Maintaining your new white smile is easy – just be sure to brush and floss daily and schedule regular dental checkups. Also, do your best to avoid the foods and beverages that may have stained your teeth in the first place. With proper care and caution, your white smile will give you years and years of confidence and pleasure. Are you ready to schedule a Zoom!™ whitening appointment with Midtown Manhattan’s Drs. Boyd?

Are you ready for your smile to shine its brightest? Perhaps the idea of getting your teeth whitened appeals to you but you still have questions about the treatment and how it works. That is why we have compiled the following list of FAQs. If you do not find the information you were hoping for, you are more than welcome to contact us directly so we can personally assist you.
As mentioned above, Drs. Boyd NYC’s Top-Rated Dentist Since 1930 usually recommends one Zoom! appointment with at-home whitening between them. This tends to produce the most dramatic results. However, if in-office teeth whitening in New York City does not appeal to you, you can also opt for whitening that takes place entirely in the comfort of your own home. We’ll provide you with custom trays and a powerful whitening gel, and you should see remarkable results after about two weeks.
Professional teeth whitening is one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments we offer. We’ll discuss pricing information when you visit us for your consultation. Although professional whitening costs more than over the counter bleaching treatments, it is far safer and more effective. It’s a worthwhile investment in your smile!
Some sensitivity is normal in the first few days after a whitening treatment. It occurs because the whitening process penetrates the tooth enamel in order to remove deep-set stains. You can minimize any discomfort by temporarily avoiding foods that are highly acidic or that are very hot or very cold.
As noted above, it’s best to minimize your consumption of any staining foods and beverages. In the first 48 hours after your Zoom! treatment, you should avoid such items altogether because your teeth may be more vulnerable to incurring new stains during this period. It’s best to stick to consuming things that are light-colored. Pasta with white sauce, milk, bananas, chicken, and rice are all safe choices.
Whitening agents do not affect the color of dental bonding, veneers, or crowns. If you have any of these restorations on your front teeth, you may need to get them replaced if you wish to have a uniformly white smile.
Professional teeth whitening is quite good at vanquishing even very dark stains. However, it is more effective on some types of discoloration than on others. For example, severe fluorosis or tetracycline stains tend to be tougher to get rid of than stains from foods and beverages. When you come in for your consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and recommend a treatment plan that will help you attain the bright white smile that you deserve.
