Teeth whitening has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today, providing a quick, easy and economical smile makeover.

Teeth whitening can reduce the signs of aging and effects of lifestyle habits, providing a more youthful smile that you will feel confident sharing. There are a wide range of over the counter options available, but professional teeth whitening under the care of a cosmetic dentist is safer and much more effective.

teeth whiteningDr. Scott Schwartz offers convenient options for professional teeth whitening in Croton-On-Hudson and surrounding Westchester County areas. Whether you desire an in-office or take home option, your treatment will dramatically brighten and whiten your smile without sensitivity.

As a top dentist in the area, Dr. Schwartz will meet with personally to evaluate your dental health and discuss your cosmetic goals before your teeth whitening treatment.

How The Process Works

The teeth whitening procedure restores teeth back to to their naturally white stage.  It has the power to remove stains caused by certain foods, beverages, and lifestyle habits. Teeth whitening removes stains by not only polishing the surface, but also sending peroxide into the tooth to whiten from the inside out.

Peroxide is used as the main agent in teeth whitening procedures. Although most toothpastes containing peroxide claim whitening effects, the correct use actually enters the teeth to whiten the inside layers, known as dentin. At the office of Dr. Scott Schwartz, we offer several different systems, including professional-grade strips, custom trays, and in-office whitening.


The cost of professional teeth whitening can vary depending on individual treatment options and needs.  We accept many insurance providers, and if your treatment is covered, you can receive the benefit of personal reduced costs.


Teeth discoloration can be caused from multiple factors including:

  • genetics
  • medical conditions
  • certain medications
  • smoking or tobacco use
  • dark beverages including wine, tea, or coffee

Zoom Teeth Whitening

Zoom whitening is an in-office treatment option that uses the “Zoom Power” chair side lamp to accelerate the bleaching process. This activates the hydrogen peroxide whitening, which when broken down, enters the enamel and dentin of teeth to reach the stained substances.  If you want to find out if Zoom whitening is the right option for you set up an appointment today!

Additional Treatment Options

If it is determined that a tooth whitening treatment is not an option for your specific type of tooth discoloration or cosmetic needs, Dr. Scwartz may recommend a cosmetic dental procedure that can provide more permanent results:

  • Tooth bonding: for white spots that are often difficult to treat, a cosmetic tooth bonding may be used to resurface the tooth and provide an even color tone.
  • Dental veneers: using high quality porcelain or minimal prep veneers, Dr. Schwartz can often provide a lasting smile makeover in as few as two visits to our Croton On Hudson dentist office.
  • Dental crowns: for a single stained tooth, a dental crown can be color matched to your remaining teeth for an aesthetic result that is complete in one visit.
