Happy Together

From children’s visits to senior care, Dr.s Dory and Khalida Stutman have you covered no matter what your oral care needs.

We strive to give every patient a beautiful, healthy smile they can be proud of. Our traditional cosmetic services include porcelain veneers, Invisalign and Zoom! teeth whitening.

Time May Not Be on Your Side

You can brush and floss in the morning, before you go to bed, and after every meal and your teeth will still yellow as your age. The best way to keep your natural glow is to maintain great oral hygiene, but for a truly brilliant white smile, you might need a whitening agent to help. When we eat or drink or even breathe, we expose our teeth to molecules that can discolor our enamel. Brushing, flossing and regular hygienist visits remove the majority of stains from the surface of your teeth, but enamel is extremely porous. Even if we brush or floss after meals, some of the molecules still get trapped in the porous enamel. Over time, these molecules reach the inner dentine layer where regular brushing and flossing can’t reach them.

Unless you aced chemistry, you may not realize that these molecules bond to the molecules in your teeth changing the way the look and the way they react to other molecules. In order to remove the stains, you have to break that bond through oxidation. Using hydrogen or carbamide peroxide, creates a chemical reaction that causes the foreign matter that discolors your teeth to release its bond.

Brighter Smiles for Summer

The good news for your smile is that, over the years, researchers have developed a great way to improve the whiteness of your teeth. At South Shore Dental Care, the Dr.s Stutman utilize one of the most effective whitening treatments on the market, Zoom! whitening. Created as an at home whitening gel, professional grade Zoom! whitening gel used in our office is paired with a special no-heat light that amplifies your results, but at home whitening is still an option.

At home whitening with Zoom! can be just as effect as our in office treatments, if you don’t need as much whitening or you’d prefer to whiten more gradually. We will create a customized application tray to be used with our professional whitening gel that is a much higher quality than gels you can buy in stores. Over the course of one or more weeks depending on how much change you desire, your teeth will gradually lighten leaving you with a brilliant smile.

In office whitening takes a little over an hour. We’ll need to prep your mouth before we whiten by protecting your lips and gums. Then, we apply a layer of whitening gel to your teeth. The no-heat light is placed over your mouth for about an hour to kick start the whitening process. After your teeth have whitened for an hour, we will give you a fluoride treatment to protect your teeth and make the whitening last. Patients who whiten in our office can see a difference of 6 to 10 shades with just one visit.

Have You Tried (And Failed) With At Home Teeth Whitening?

October 10, 2014

187872302Lisa loathed the idea of going on a blind date. But a good friend finally convinced her to go on one with a smart and classy dentist from her hometown. With a few more days to go before the big date, Lisa was starting to get a little worried. In her opinion, she was looking better than she ever had, except for her smile. Lisa loved her coffee, and indulged in a cigarette or two here and there. She also enjoyed a glass of wine with dinner. Over the years, she noticed that these habits had begun to take a toll in her teeth. Instead of the bright white color they were in high school, now they had a yellowish hue and some brown spots near her gum line.

Lisa had a long standing fear of the dentist so she hadn’t had any dental care in a few years. Lisa tried switching to a teeth whitening toothpaste a few months ago, but hadn’t noticed any difference in the color of her enamel. So with only two days to go before her date, she decided to try an at-home teeth whitening system from her local drug store. She followed the directions correctly, or so she thought, but soon began to regret this decision. Not only did the harsh bleaches irritate her gums, but they failed to whiten her teeth any better than the whitening toothpaste and did nothing to affect the brown spots. That was the last straw. Lisa decided it was time to make an appointment with a dentist and get her teeth whitened professionally. She only hoped she’d be able to get an appointment in time for her date. Don’t waste time with inferior whitening treatments like Lisa. Make an appointment with the experienced dentists of South Shore Dental Care. They help patients like you everyday achieve the teeth whitening results they expect and deserve. South Shore Dental proudly serves patients throughout Massapequa, NY, Long Island, Merrick, Bellmore, Wantagh and surrounding areas.

Do It Yourself Teeth Whitening Treatments

  • Whitening Toothpaste- Whitening toothpaste can polish away shallow surface stains but can’t change the actual color of your teeth or lighten a stain that goes deeper than the tooth’s surface. Typically, whitening toothpaste takes two to six weeks to produce any results. Whitening toothpaste is probably most useful for maintaining the results of professional teeth whitening treatment.

 

  • Store-Bought At- Home Whitening- Over-the-counter teeth whitening products contain much lower concentrations of whitening agents than the professional products used by a dentist. In most cases, you need to use them over and over again for many weeks before you will see any change in the whiteness of your teeth. This type of teeth whitening treatment can also irritate your gums or be completely ineffective if you have worn tooth enamel, gum disease, sensitive teeth or tooth-colored fillings and crowns.

Professional Teeth Whitening Solutions in Massapequa Park, NY

South Shore Dental offers Zoom Whitening. Zoom can whiten your teeth up to eight shades in just in hour. You can also try their take-home teeth whitening option. This includes custom bleaching trays and teeth whitening bleaching gel to protect your gums from irritation. You may not have a date with a dentist, but you probably care just as much as Lisa does about how your teeth look. Remember that your teeth may have stains that require professional teeth whitening, or even more permanent cosmetic procedures like porcelain veneers, bonding or dental crowns. Get the teeth whitening results you want the first time by making an appointment with the teeth whitening experts of South Shore Dental Care. They help people like you and Lisa achieve brighter, whiter smiles every day. South Shore Dental proudly serves patients throughout Massapequa, NY, Long Island, Merrick, Bellmore, Wantagh and surrounding communities.

October 12, 2012

For some patients, extensive decay, disease, or a serious injury has left their smile with limited functionality, or with a smile they’re embarrassed to share with others. In cases like these, one service may not be enough to restore functionality or appearance. That’s why, at South Shore Dental Care, Dr. Dory Stutman and Dr. Khalida Stutman are happy to provide a service called full-mouth reconstruction.
