The Most Common Myths and Misconceptions About Teeth Whitening

Last updated 5 years ago


Professional teeth whitening can make a once-dull smile sparkle again. As this video explains, however, some people harbor unfortunate misconceptions about teeth whitening and its benefits.

Though teeth whitening can brighten up virtually any smile, it will not affect all dental patients in the same way. In particular, individuals with yellowed teeth will likely see a more dramatic improvement after teeth whitening than people with grayed teeth. Also, while teeth whitening can provide stunning results, they do not last indefinitely. If you smoke or drink stain-producing beverages, you are likely to experience tooth discoloration again. One reason some people refrain from getting teeth whitening is because they fear pain during the process. However, the vast majority of patients experience little to no discomfort.

Dr. Kenn Kakosian D.D.S., P.C. provides safe and pain-free teeth whitening services for patients in the greater Manhattan community. To set up an appointment, call us today at (212) 661-9777.
