As we age, our teeth often naturally become more dull and yellow in color. This can be accelerated by certain foods and drinks, as well as tobacco use. Quitting tobacco and avoiding coffee, tea, and wine can help slow the process, but it cannot remove the stains that already exist. With professional laser teeth whitening, you can remove old stains and brighten your smile with long-lasting results. At Dental Professionals of Fair Lawn, we use ZOOM!® and KöR® products to give you a beautiful, dazzling smile you will be proud to show off.
How it Works
Using ZOOM!® or KöR® in-office professional teeth whitening, our cosmetic dentists are able to help you lighten your teeth by several shades. Unlike over-the-counter teeth whitening products, you will be able to see results immediately after treatment, and the treatment can be customized to meet your individual needs. The teeth whitening process generally takes about an hour, and it is fairly simple. First, one of our dental professionals will apply a unique whitening gel to your teeth. Then, a specialized light is used to activate the gel, allowing oxygen to reach deep inside the teeth, beneath enamel and dentin. This works to reduce the stains, ultimately leading to a whitening effect. Once treatment has been completed, we will provide you with professional at-home teeth whitening products, such as ZOOM!® NiteWhite and a customized tray to use for regular maintenance. Because the tray is made using a mold of your teeth, a precise fit will help ensure comfort and optimal results.
Why Should I Whiten My Teeth?
Teeth whitening can enhance the overall appearance of your smile dramatically and quickly. With a brighter, whiter smile, many people have found they feel more confident. Patients often choose to have professional teeth whitening prior to a major event, such as a wedding, reunion, or an important job interview. The popularity of teeth whitening has increased over recent years, however, and many people choose to have their teeth whitened simply to improve their everyday appearance. Teeth whitening can also be an excellent way to show off a new smile after completing an Invisalign® treatment or other dental procedures.
