Customized, Effective Teeth Whitening Treatments
Teeth whitening is arguably the most popular form of cosmetic dentistry in the United States. It’s easy to understand why.
When our teeth are bright and white, they look cleaner. This makes our teeth look healthier, and it makes our smiles look nicer. Studies have shown that people with white teeth are often considered more attractive, more intelligent, and more successful than people with discolored teeth.
This is a matter of perception that may or may not reflect reality. But perceptions matter in professional settings, such as meeting a client or going on a job interview. They matter in personal situations, too.
Regardless of your reasons for wanting a brighter smile, our dentist office in Millburn, NJ, would like to help. Our professional teeth whitening system is more effective than anything you can find in the toothpaste aisle.
Our Teeth Whitening Is Convenient
We all want results, but we don’t necessarily want to make a huge effort for everything. You may want whiter teeth, but you might settle for trying whitening toothpaste or whitening gels or strips from the store.
The over-the-counter products are easy to find, but they may not work as well as you would like. In fact, that’s why many of our patients come to us for professional teeth whitening.
At Millburn Dental Arts, we can create a set of trays for you and provide you with our professional-strength whitening gel. Once this is done, it is as simple to use as the store-bought products. The difference is that your results are more noticeable with professional whitening.
This can be done at your home on your schedule. Just let us know that you are interested in teeth whitening when you make your next appointment, and we can help you get started on bringing back your bright smile.
Our Teeth Whitening Is Customized
Part of the reason our professional whitening works so well is because our system is customized for each patient.
Many commercial products take a one-size-fits-all approach. That can lead to uneven whitening, so some parts of your teeth look cleaner than others. That’s not necessarily a better look for your smile than having teeth that are all the same color.
One of the first steps in our process is creating custom-fitted whitening trays for your teeth. Having trays that are designed for your teeth makes it more likely that the whitening gel will be distributed evenly across your smile. This will give it a white and more uniform coloring.
When you see the results, we think you will agree that this is better than having white spots on your teeth.
Our Teeth Whitening Is Effective
The convenience and customization of our teeth whitening don’t matter unless the treatment is effective.
The American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs took a close look at the various whitening products as more of them were introduced on the market. We want to share their findings about commercial and professional whitening products.
The council reported that whitening toothpaste could help remove some surface stains. Commercial gels and strips could get below the surface, but they contained relatively low amounts of “bleaching agents” such as hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide.
Professional whitening products, on the other hand, could be up to 11 times stronger than commercial whitening products. This meant that, when used as directed by a dentist, professional whitening products are much more likely to remove deep stains from smiles.
These products are only available at dentist offices because of their higher concentrations of bleaching agents. This also is why it’s important to let a dentist, like our own Dr. Scott Krosser, examine your mouth before starting any whitening treatment.
