Isn’t it time that you felt more confident smiling again?
If you are a coffee lover like so many of us out there then it might not come as much of a surprise that your teeth are probably not as white as they once were. If your yellowing and dull smile has you feeling a little embarrassed, don’t worry; our East Brunswick, NJ, prosthodontist Dr. Nainesh Desai has the solution that will have you smiling again in no time.
When it comes to whitening your smile you have several options:
- Over-the-counter whitening products and kits
- Professional in-office teeth whitening
- Professional at-home whitening
The kind of teeth whitening that is right for you will depend on several factors including:
- The type of dental stains
- The severity of the stains
- Your budget
- Your time commitment
- How quickly you want results
These are all things to consider before sitting down with our prosthodontist in East Brunswick, NJ. During your consultation, we will discuss your goals, as well as these factors to determine which kind of teeth whitening is the best option.
In most cases, if you are looking to get fast, visible results, in-office teeth whitening is the best option, as we can easily get smiles up to seven shades whiter (or more) in just a single one-hour treatment.
Patients dealing with yellow stains caused by the foods and drinks they consume every day, as well as smoking and the natural effects of aging, will see the most visible results from in-office teeth whitening. Those with more severe stains may require more than one treatment session, which we can discuss during your consultation.
If you do decide to get professional in-office teeth whitening you can sit back and relax in our dental chair while we apply the whitening gel on your teeth. Since the gel contains an extremely high percentage of the active whitening ingredient (either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide) it means that we don’t have to leave the whitening gel on your teeth nearly as long as you do with at-home whitening in order to see results. We may also direct a dental light over the teeth to activate and speed up the effects of the whitening gel.
Our at-home whitening system can also be a great option for patients who want the convenience of whitening from home while still knowing that the whitening product they are using is going to be effective. Most patients see results after a week or two of continued use.
