Never underestimate the importance of a dazzling, white smile. A beautiful smile can help you make a better first impression when you meet new people, and it can boost your self esteem considerably. If stained teeth have made you hesitant to flash your smile in a room full of people, then teeth whitening may be an ideal option to help you recapture those pearly whites.
Over time, your tooth enamel wears down, allowing the more yellowish core of your teeth to show through. This is often exacerbated by consuming products which can stain your teeth, such as:
- Red wine
As a result, a smile which used to be bright and white becomes tarnished and dull. By opting for a teeth whitening procedure, you can restore a bright shine to your teeth in one short office visit.
Tooth Whitening Options
Oradell Family Dental offers several teeth whitening options that will provide you with dramatic whitening results. For our in-office whitening procedures, we use BriteSmile® and Rembrandt®. However, we also offer Day White and Night White take-home whitening systems by Discus.
The BriteSmile® teeth whitening system will provide you with long lasting results in just one hour. Oradell cosmetic dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter will apply the whitening gel to your teeth. He will then use the patented BriteSmile® blue light to activate the whitening gel. You will undergo three 20 minute sessions during your treatment. In your hour-long office visit, your teeth can become upwards of 10 shades lighter.
The take-home whitening systems use a rapid-release peroxide to release deep stains inside your teeth. Discus offers a variety of different whitening products, and Dr. Perlmutter will recommend the system that best meets your needs.
Tooth whitening is a quick, easy way to brighten your smile. In most cases, you can expect the results to last for at least one year. However, the results may vary based on your consumption of staining foods and beverages. An occasional touch-up procedure at our office will help ensure your results last even longer.
Dr. Perlmutter has chosen to use the BriteSmile® and Discus whitening systems because they consistently yield excellent results while providing you with the highest levels of safety. While other teeth whitening systems may irritate your teeth and gums, our whitening products keep discomfort at a minimum.
