Types of Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to whiten your smile compared to the kits and toothpastes found at your local drug store. Over-the-counter products can have varying strengths, which can lead to dental damage or prove completely ineffective. At New Jersey Dental Centers, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening options and supervise all treatments for our patients. Our doctors can ensure you receive safe, comfortable care.
- In-Office Zoom!® Whitening: We will apply a peroxide-based gel to your teeth and use a special light to activate the gel. This process typically takes about 15 minutes and can be repeated three times. You can achieve a smile that is up to eight shades brighter with just one office visit. This treatment is ideal for patients who have a special event such as a wedding that requires a fast solution for brightening their smile. It can also be used in combination with take-home whitening treatment to prolong effects. Although results are not permanent, the procedure can be repeated periodically to maintain your smile.
- Take-Home Zoom!® Whitening: For patients who do not need immediate results but are looking for a convenient solution to whiten their smile, our doctors can provide customized trays with a special whitening gel. You will typically wear your trays for 30 minutes a day, and can notice significant results in just one to two weeks. When combined with our in-office treatments, you can achieve longer-lasting results. You can also regularly maintain these effects in the comfort of your home with safe, comfortable retreatments.
We will also clean your teeth prior to a whitening procedure to improve your overall results.
For hard-to-remove stains and permanent discoloration, Drs. Eldin and Amer may recommend porcelain veneers. These cosmetic restorations can be bonded directly over the stained tooth when teeth whitening does not adequately address the discoloration.
When combined with the take-home kit, in-office teeth whitening can have a dramatic effect that can restore your confidence in your smile.
