Benefit of Teeth Whitening

Dr. Jerry Strauss shares the advantages of in-office teeth whitening treatments as opposed to over-the-counter products.

Totowa, NJ – Dr. Jerry Strauss, a cosmetic dentist in New Jersey, offers a variety of dental treatment options at Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey to help patients achieve their dream smile. Among the different treatments, he says teeth whitening is a simple solution that can provide a drastic improvement to a person’s smile. Dr. Strauss notes that although over-the-counter teeth whitening options can provide beautiful results, professional treatments are typically preferred, due to the many benefits they can offer patients.

The dentist emphasizes the potential of professional teeth whitening, saying this method tends to be a more effective solution. He explains this is possible from the professional-strength formulas that options like Zoom!™ tooth whitening can offer. Due to this higher strength, Dr. Strauss says professional treatments can provide optimal whitening results in less time.

Another advantage to professional teeth whitening versus over-the-counter options, Dr. Strauss explains, is the ability to customize the treatment. He says that by using the appropriate formula strength, as well as tools like custom-made trays, patients can realize their whitening potential with the formula achieving maximum contact with their teeth. Another way Dr. Strauss notes customization aiding the whitening process is the lack of gum irritation. Although teeth whitening sensitivity cannot always be eradicated, he says the increased control of a professional providing the treatment can help protect your gums from added irritation.

Overall, Dr. Strauss recommends teeth whitening, whether over-the-counter or professional, to anyone wishing to improve the look of their smile with a simple method. He notes, however, that the supervision involved in a professional treatment can help patients find the most beneficial method for achieving a bright, white smile.
