Teeth Whitening in Holmdel, NJ

If you’re considering a professional teeth whitening treatment, you may have some questions. While we’re happy to answer any of your concerns during a thoughtful consultation, we’d like to provide some general information here.

How Do Teeth Become Discolored?

Teeth can become discolored with age, poor oral hygiene care, drinking coffee, tea, and red wine, as well as consuming highly acidic foods. Certain medications, trauma, and infection can also cause discoloration.

What Are My Professional Teeth Whitening Options?

We offer in-office bleaching treatments that provide instant results even after the first session. However, if your schedule doesn’t allow for hour-long visits, or if you just prefer to use a kit designed for home use, we can also personalize a take-home kit for you.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Our teeth whitening services, which are approved by the American Dental Association (ADA), are both effective and completely safe. Studies have shown that teeth whitening treatments have no negative effect on your future oral health.

Are There Side Effects to a Teeth Whitening Treatment?

The potential side effects of teeth whitening treatment are both minimal and manageable. Some patients experience some sensitivity in their teeth that eventually fades in just a couple of days or weeks. Furthermore, if the gums come into contact with the bleaching solution, they can become irritated, but this irritation will also go away on its own.

How Do I Maintain My Teeth Whitening Results?

Maintaining your radiant results is as simple as adhering to a stringent oral care routine at home. We suggest brushing twice every day and after each meal, as well as flossing daily. You should visit our office for a checkup and cleaning every six months as well.

Additional actions you can take to keep your smile looking and feeling great is avoiding the consumption of foods and beverages that tend to stain. Of course, smoking cessation is recommended not only for your oral health and whiter teeth but for your overall health as well.
