TEETH WHITENING

IN WARREN, NJ

Dentist in Warren, NJ

Teeth that have been stained or darkened by food, tobacco use, age, medications or injury can be lightened and brightened by means of a non-invasive process known as teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening or bleaching simply refers to any process that will make the teeth appear whiter. While there are many over the counter options for teeth whitening, the most effective and safest teeth whitening systems are the professional strength ones available at the dentist’s office. A dental professional whitening system offers a higher concentration of whitening components and delivers them to the teeth in the most efficient manner to achieve optimal results.

At The Star Dental Group in Warren, we offer two exceptional options for tooth whitening. You can choose either an in-office tooth whitening procedure or a professional take home system. Both of these are top-of the-line systems. However, the biggest advantage of the in-office procedure is that in as little as one hour you can achieve a smile that is several shades whiter and brighter than the original color of your teeth.

Our professional strength take home system also produces excellent results. However, this is achieved by way of a more gradual process. Our take home kit may be prescribed alone, or after an in-office treatment to perfect or maintain the in-office result.

Firstly, we will take an impression of your teeth to create a custom mouthpiece for both the upper and lower teeth that fits properly.  It's important that the mouthpiece fits well so that the whitening gel will remain in contact with your teeth.  Once at home, you will fill each mouthpiece with a whitening gel that is provided by the dentist.  The mouthpiece needs to be worn several hours a day with the gel to get the best results.  Most patients achieve the whitening they desire within one to two weeks, but it can take up to four weeks.

First, we will apply a substance that covers and protects the gums around your teeth.  Next, a powerful whitening gel will be applied onto the teeth.  The gel is left on your teeth for twenty minutes and is then reapplied for a second twenty minute session to help get your teeth their whitest.  If you are prone to sensitivity, we also offer a desensitizing take home gel to help minimize sensitivity from the whitening.  It's important to avoid foods and drinks that could stain teeth (such as wine or pasta sauce) for the next 48 hours, in order to get the best results.

BEFORE & AFTER

Dentist in Warren, NJ

You do not have to accept yellowed teeth with tired, old restorations. Whitening of all the teeth and porcelain crowns on the two front teeth created a whole new smile.

With Invisalign, whitening and beautiful, porcelain crowns, this smile was transformed into a younger, whiter, straighter center of attraction. What had been a cause of concern is now a source of joy.
