Professional Teeth Whitening by Dr. Stanislaus
When considering teeth whitening options, it is very important to draw upon the expertise of a highly trained and dedicated cosmetic dentist. Brooklyn cosmetic dentist Dr. Eugene Stanislaus highly recommends in-office teeth whitening treatments to make your smile whiter, brighter, and better overall.
Completed right at our Brooklyn dental practice, professional in-office teeth whitening lets you improve the appearance of your smile by several shades of white in just a single office visit! In-office teeth whitening treatment is the cornerstone of many smile makeover regimens and is perfect for patients for a less invasive treatment option.
Basics of In-Office Teeth Whitening
In-office teeth whitening is just what it sounds like. You will come to our office and undergo a teeth whitening treatment that is administered, monitored, and performed Dr. Stanislaus. The bleaching agents and systems used in a professional in-office teeth whitening treatment will require professional supervision given their relative complexity.
How Does In-Office Teeth Whitening Work?
The first step to getting your perfect smile with in-office teeth whitening is an initial consultation with Dr. Stanislaus at his Brooklyn, NY cosmetic dentistry practice. During this visit, we’ll assess your goals and overall dental health in order to determine which teeth whitening treatment will produce the best results in accordance with your wishes.
On the day of treatment, Dr. Stanislaus will thoroughly clean teeth and remove plaque to ensure your teeth whitening treatment is as successful as possible. We’ll then cover your gums with a specialized paste and apply the bleaching gel to your teeth. While the bleaching gel is safe for teeth, it can cause gum sensitivity.
Once the bleaching agent has been applied onto your teeth, you’ll sit underneath a special light that activates the whitening properties of the bleaching agent. This helps the formula special bleaching formula fully penetrate the dental enamel of teeth and lift discoloration or staining from those dental layers. In some cases a laser may be utilized rather than a light, in a process known as laser teeth whitening.
After your teeth whitening treatment, Dr. Stanislaus will go over post-treatment instructions to ensure your smile remains bright and beautiful. Typically, we recommend avoiding staining drinks and beverages. In some cases patients may be provided with a take-home teeth whitening kit or teeth whitening strips to supplement treatments performed at the office.
What is Laser Teeth Whitening?
Laser teeth whitening is the most advanced technique for dental teeth whitening because of its high concentration and the necessary skills needed to administer it to patients.
The major difference between laser teeth whitening and other in-office whitening treatments is that the strong bleaching agents used in laser teeth whitening are activated and enhanced using a laser light instead of a traditional ultra-violet light.
The use of a laser for this treatment allows for an instantly noticeable result that our patients are eager to shine.
How Does Laser Teeth Whitening Work?
During your initial visit with Dr. Stanislaus, he will discuss your smile goals with you and conduct an examination of your smile, looking for any potential problems that might prevent you from enjoying the full potential of this treatment. If there are any, we will treat them, allow time for your mouth to heal, and then you’ll return to begin your laser whitening treatment.
Day of Your Treatment
On the day of your laser whitening treatment, we will first complete your routine dental cleaning to remove any plaque build up that may interfere with treatment. After the cleaning, Dr. Stanislaus will carefully apply the bleaching agent to the surface of each tooth.
Once placed on your teeth, the bleaching agent will be exposed to a safe, powerful laser light that activates the stain removing properties. This will allow the bleaching agent to penetrate the dental enamel and dentin layers of your teeth, resulting in a whitening effect on the entire structure of each tooth.
How Long Wil the Process Take?
Each treatment generally takes up to an hour with Dr. Stanislaus. The number of laser treatments you’ll need to achieve your ideal smile varies from patient to patient and their expected results.
Most patients are extremely pleased after just one session of whitening as they instantly see a brighter smile. However, other patients who have deep stains may need multiple visits to attain their smile goals.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does in-office teeth whitening take?
For most patients, in-office teeth whitening can be completed in as little as an hour. This means you can spend less time in the dentist’s chair and more time enjoying your sparkling new smile. While whitening your teeth at home can also be effective, you’ll have to wait weeks to see results instead of enjoying the immediate benefits of a flawless smile.
Is in-office teeth whitening painful?
Not at all! Before applying the bleaching gel to your teeth, Dr. Stanislaus will protect your gums with a numbing agent that will prevent sensitivity. As a result, you’ll hardly feel a thing during your teeth whitening treatment. The concentrated bleaching gel is guaranteed safe for your teeth and any discomfort that you experience should be mild and brief.
