Teeth Whitening Totowa, NJ
Enjoy a Whiter, Brighter, More Beautiful Smile
Stains and discoloration don’t have to dull your smile — professional teeth whitening treatment can lift stains and help you reclaim a bright smile that makes your entire face look young and vibrant.
When performed by a trusted and knowledgeable dentist like Dr. Jerry Strauss, teeth whitening is completely safe. Dr. Strauss encourages you to explore your chairside whitening options for quicker, more comfortable and more effective treatment. He offers the Zoom! system, a top whitening system preferred by dentists nationwide.
Zoom! teeth whitening can break up stains caused by coffee, tea, soda, red wine, tobacco use, tetracycline, fluoride deposits and the effects of the natural aging process. Thanks to Zoom!, you can look younger and healthier for a big event like a wedding or reunion — or simply your day-to-day life.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening vs. At-Home Whitening
Professional teeth whitening with the Zoom! system is quicker and more effective than using over-the-counter whitening strips or gels. The bleaching agent is more concentrated than what you will find in a drugstore, and works fast — Zoom! can lighten teeth up to eight shades or more in a single treatment.
Instead of waiting weeks to see results with at-home products, professional teeth whitening produces immediate and noticeable results. The teeth look even and uniform, and there are no inconsistencies in color. Dr. Strauss can also provide touch-up trays and gel to maintain the results long-term.
Professional teeth whitening is also more comfortable than at-home whitening. Stock whitening trays and strips often slide around and can leak whitening product onto the gums and the soft tissues of the mouth. This can cause irritation and discomfort. Teeth sensitivity is also common with at-home, unsupervised whitening treatment. But with Dr. Strauss performing treatment, he can reduce the chances of sensitivity and discomfort for a more pleasant experience.
What Happens During Chairside Teeth Whitening Treatment?
Prior to starting whitening treatment, Dr. Strauss checks the teeth for any areas of decay or damage, like small chips or cracks. He also examines the mouth for any dental restorations, as whitening treatment won’t improve the color of fillings, crowns or veneers. If the mouth has undergone a lot of restoration work, Dr. Strauss can suggest a work-around to achieve an even and uniform tooth color.
Once Dr. Strauss determines there are no issues that could compromise the effectiveness of treatment, he covers up the gums with a rubber shield and applies the Zoom! bleaching gel to the teeth. Then, he activates the gel with a special blue light, which allows oxygen to enter the dentin and enamel, causing the shade of the teeth to lighten. The use of the special light accelerates treatment. This bleaching effect can effectively break up stains and discoloration, allowing the teeth to shine brighter.
Once the gel has sat on the teeth for about 15 minutes, it is wiped off and the process is repeated twice. The entire treatment should take 45 minutes to an hour to complete.
Dr. Strauss can provide custom-fitted whitening trays to use in conjunction with chairside whitening or on their own. These trays are fitted to the teeth so they don’t shift or slide around for a more powerful whitening experience.
