Whitening your teeth can be one of the fastest ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Over time, consumption of certain foods, beverages, and tobacco products can cause deep stains to appear on your teeth. In addition, even aging can make teeth become dull and discolored. To combat unwanted dental stains, our skilled cosmetic dentist in Manhattan—Dr. Michael Kosdon—offers two teeth whitening options that can brighten your teeth to a more vibrant shade of white. Both our in-office Zoom!® treatments and custom-tailored at-home kits can effectively whiten your smile for a healthier, more youthful look. During the consultation process, Dr. Kosdon will carefully listen to your goals, perform an oral exam, and help you decide which whitening treatment can deliver the results you desire.
Zoom!® Teeth Whitening
With Zoom!® teeth whitening, Dr. Kosdon can dramatically brighten your smile in just one office visit. Most Zoom!® treatments can be completed in about an hour and provide immediate results that are typically six to ten shades lighter. For our patients with busy schedules and home lives, Zoom!® teeth whitening offers unparalleled speed and convenience.
After applying the Zoom!® professional-grade whitening gel to the upper and lower teeth, Dr. Kosdon activates the gel with a low-intensity blue plasma light. Over the course of the treatment, oxygen breaks down deep stains and discoloration within the tooth enamel and dentin. To help maintain the results of Zoom!® teeth whitening, many patients choose to use our at-home kits for occasional touch-ups when needed.
At-Home Professional Whitening Kits
All of our at-home teeth whitening kits use customized trays to provide the teeth with full coverage, maximizing both your comfort and results. Dr. Kosdon will first fabricate your custom trays by taking an impression of your teeth. He will then provide you with detailed instructions on how to apply the whitening gel and how long you should wear your trays.
Our at-home teeth whitening kits allow you to brighten your teeth in the convenience of your own home. As an added benefit, at-home whitening systems can give you greater control over the final shade of your teeth as the whitening process is more gradual. You can use your custom trays again and again to whiten your teeth whenever you need a touch-up.

I went to Dr.Kosdon’s office for a consultation about fixing my crooked teeth and
he told me he was going to change my life. Holy cow, was he right! As soon as we were done with the treatment this uncomfortable anxiety to not show my teeth or hide my smile when speaking to people was lifted from one day to the next. Now when I smile I know that my teeth are not only straight and white, but that they have been designed to look they way they do. People tell me I not only look better but I emit a more pleasant vibe. He absolutely did change my life!
