What is Professional Teeth Whitening?
Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that we use to whiten teeth up to several shades. It can remove both intrinsic as well as extrinsic staining. As a result, years of staining can easily be removed from your teeth. This is different than the teeth whitening kits you buy at the store because professional teeth whitening kits are prescribed by your dentist. The bleaching solution contains a higher concentration of bleach than what is typically sold over the counter. This allows us to achieve better results for your teeth. Our dentist in Florham Park will make sure that the teeth whitening results you achieve are the exact ones you desire. We achieve your desired results by giving you the correct bleaching solution for your smile. For professional results that last, visit your Florham Park dentist for professional teeth whitening.
Am I a Good Candidate for Teeth Whitening in Florham Park?
Most patients are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening as long as they have healthy teeth and gums. Before your treatment, our dentist will first verify that your smile is healthy by doing a visual examination as well as taking x-rays depending on when your last dental exam was. If you have dental veneers, crowns, inlays, and onlays or other restorations, we will also need to make sure that they are not in the front of your mouth. This is because dental restorations do not respond to whitening treatments as they are not porous. Therefore, if we whiten your smile, your teeth with the restorations will not whiten, leaving your smile an uneven color. If your restorations are not white enough, we will have to replace them in order for your smile to be even. If you meet these requirements, however, our dentist will conclude that you are a good candidate for professional teeth whitening in Florham Park.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
When you decide to whiten your teeth, you will have the option of either whitening your teeth in our office, or using a take-home kit to use at your convenience. The in-office option is ideal for patients who want immediate results and would prefer not to stretch their treatment out over a few weeks. The in-office whitening treatment will first begin with Dr. Gohard taking impressions of your teeth using our iTero scanner to be sent off to the lab where your custom-made whitening trays will be made. Once they have returned from the lab, we can give you your whitening treatment. We will fill up the tray with the bleaching solution and then place it in your mouth. The custom-made tray will ensure that your teeth whiten evenly and that no bleach finds its way onto your gums.
You will sit with the trays in your mouth for about an hour in front of a special light that activates the bleaching solution. After the hour is up, you can expect for your teeth to be shades lighter. If you want them to be any lighter, you can schedule an additional tooth whitening appointment or use a take-home kit. In just an hour, your smile can look completely different! What are you waiting for?
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Your other option for whiter teeth is a take-home kit. The at-home whitening kit is ideal for patients who would prefer to whiten in the convenience of their home. Unfortunately, it does not work as quickly as the in-office treatment. As long as you can be patient with your results, your teeth will look just as great one the treatment is complete. The process for at-home whitening is about the same as in-office except there is no special light that you use. Our dentist will need to make custom trays to fit your mouth. Once those are ready, we will send you home with the trays and bleaching solution. We will also recommend the right amount of time to wear them every day and for how many days. Most patients complete their whitening treatment in as little as two weeks.
The Truth About Over the Counter Whitening Products
Before you skip visiting our Florham Park dentist and just opt for an over the counter whitening treatment, make sure you learn a bit more about the truth behind them. First off, they will not whiten your teeth as much as a professional treatment. Second, it’s likely that they don’t whiten your teeth or leave your teeth uneven. Lastly, you might damage your enamel when using a product that was not given to you by your dentist. Save your teeth from damage and get professional results when you visit our dentist for professional teeth whitening.
