Tooth stains or discoloration are most commonly caused by tobacco, coffee, tea, red wine, berries, tomato-based sauces, select medications, the natural aging process and genetics. Regardless of the cause, it’s common to feel self-conscious when your pearly whites are no longer white. If you’re unhappy with the color of your teeth, you’ve probably attempted to whiten them yourself with over-the-counter (OTC) products. While a few of these options may subtly brighten your stained teeth, most people don’t achieve the results they desire using these methods. Professional teeth whitening from our skilled cosmetic dentist is the best option if you want a whiter and brighter smile that lasts a long time. At Blooming Dental & Implant Center, we offer affordable, office-based teeth whitening in West Caldwell, NJ. Our professional-grade bleaching agents can brighten your teeth multiple shades lighter in just one visit, and we also offer at-home trays that take longer to produce optimal results.
Professional teeth whitening treatments provide many advantages compared to their OTC counterparts. Hydrogen peroxide is the most effective tooth whitening ingredient because it breaks down into water and oxygen, thereby removing stains from the surface of your teeth. Most OTC options only contain 3–4% of hydrogen peroxide, while professional options contain 25–40% of hydrogen peroxide. Whether you choose in-office or at-home trays, the clinical-strength bleaching agents we utilize at Blooming Dental & Implant Center are far more effective and safer than OTC teeth whitening products at reducing tooth stains and discoloration. Professional teeth whitening in West Caldwell, NJ delivers immediate and dramatic results in as little as an hour and the great news is most patients don’t experience any tooth or gum sensitivity during or after whitening. Our dentist will help you choose the best teeth whitening to complement your natural smile beauty and monitor your treatment for the most optimal results. After tooth whitening treatment, enjoy brighter, whiter teeth by maintaining a good oral hygiene routine, visiting us for professional cleanings and minimizing consumption of teeth-staining foods and beverages!
