Oradell Dentist Serving Bergenfield, Dumont, and Oradell, New Jersey
Teeth whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic treatments, and for good reason. People who undergo teeth whitening can smile with confidence and good cheer, knowing they have a bright, white, photogenic smile.
Do you feel awkward or uncomfortable with the way stained and discolored teeth detract from the appearance of your smile? If so, the Holiday Season may present several opportunities for discomfort. Instead of hiding your smile or simply accepting dissatisfaction, consider a tooth whitening treatment from Dumont cosmetic dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter. Dr. Perlmutter offers solutions that can brighten your smile in nearly no time at all, allowing you to feel comfortable and confident no matter what the season brings.
Tooth whitening is generally safe, but as with all medical and dental procedures, it does carry some risk. These risks are multiplied if you attempt to whiten without the supervision of a dentist, using over-the-counter products that may seem harmless but can actually cause significant damage to teeth and gums.
According to a study conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 74 percent of adults feel that an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success; 99.7 percent of adults believe that a smile is an important social asset.
Teeth sensitivity can be due to a variety of conditions, but it is of special concern to those considering teeth whitening treatment. Because many over-the-counter teeth-whitening products can cause sensitivity, those already suffering from sensitive teeth may be hesitant to try professional teeth whitening in order to achieve the vibrant smile they desire.
If you're happy with the results of your teeth whitening procedure at Dumont Cosmetic Dental, you may be wishing that you could keep the results forever. Although we can't guarantee permanent whitening results, there are many things you can do to ensure your teeth remain as white as possible for years to come.
