A brighter, whiter, more attractive smile is easier and more affordable than you might think. Professional teeth whitening treatments are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments that we offer to our patients with healthy teeth.
At Paramus Park Mall Dental, teeth whitening in Paramus is as easy as a single appointment in our office, where we can apply the bleach while you wait, or we can send you home with an at-home teeth whitening kit that you can apply on your own.
Our in-office teeth whitening treatments always begin with a cleaning with one of our dental hygienists. A simple brushing before your appointment is not adequate preparation for the bleach application, and we will need to effectively rid your teeth of any plaque, tartar, food debris, and bacteria that may be lingering.
The next step is the application of a protective substance that keeps your sensitive gums from coming into contact with the bleach. To keep your lips and cheeks off of your teeth while the bleach sets, a retractor will be put in place.
When all the prep work is done, the teeth whitening bleach—hydrogen peroxide—is gently applied. We will allow your enamel to absorb the bleach for approximately one hour, and when we remove it, you will be the amazing results right away.
For a teeth whitening kit that you can take home, you will still be required to come into our office, where we will take impressions of your teeth to craft custom trays for your kit. You will use these trays to hold the bleach and then place them over your teeth.
To get the best, brightest results, the at-home treatment will need to be used for an hour each time. We’d also like for you to schedule a follow-up visit to our clinic so that we can track your results, and make sure that you’re happy with your transformation.
For more information on teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry treatments, don’t hesitate to call us. We look forward to helping you along your journey to a more beautiful smile that you’re proud of.
