Whether you are struggling with minor discoloration or pigmented stains, you may be a candidate for teeth whitening! The best way to find out is to schedule an appointment with Dr. G., who is a top-rated cosmetic dentist in Eatontown. Once he has a chance to assess your dental needs and learn more about your smile goals, he will be able to determine your candidacy. Fortunately, even if an untreated condition, like tooth decay, initially stands in your way, he can administer the appropriate restorative service to ensure a bright, white smile isn’t out of reach.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you would like to gradually lift stubborn discoloration from the comfort of your own home, then asked us about our take-home teeth whitening options! In this case, we will provide you with all the tools you need, including a reliable whitening agent and specialty trays, which you will wear as instructed. This option is far superior to over-the-counter alternatives, which use diluted brighteners and one-size-fits-all trays, delivering lackluster results at best.

In-Office Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening, on the other hand, is ideal for patients who have a milestone event or celebration coming up. Instead of gradually brightening your smile over the course of two or three weeks, we can use our powerful whitening agents and ultraviolet light to brighten your teeth up to eight shades in a single visit! The best part? The entire process can be completed in as little as one hour.

Tips for Maintaining Your Brighter Smile

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

Teeth whitening is one of the least invasive and most comfortable treatments available! Most patients don’t feel any discomfort whatsoever. While store-bought whiteners could irritate your gums or cause tooth sensitivity, our highly personalized treatments and specially-designed whitening gel ensure you have nothing to worry about. If you have sensitive teeth and are concerned, don’t hesitate to let us know! We’ll do everything we can to make your whitening treatment as comfortable as possible.

Does Teeth Whitening Damage Enamel?

No, our high-quality teeth whitening products do not damage healthy enamel. However, if your enamel is already compromised by decay or cavities, there could be problems. That’s why we always perform a comprehensive dental exam before moving ahead with your teeth whitening treatment. We’ll carefully look for issues like tooth decay or gum disease, which could be aggravated by teeth whitening. If any problems are discovered, we’ll work with you to address them beforehand.

Does Teeth Whitening Work on Crowns and Veneers?

Restorations like crowns, veneers, onlays, and fillings are carefully crafted to look just like your natural teeth, but they’re still quite different. The high-quality tooth-colored materials that these restorations are typically made of do not respond to whitening agents the same way, and therefore cannot be whitened. Thankfully, keeping your crowns and veneers from discoloring can easily be done by brushing your teeth regularly and minimizing your consumption of dark-colored foods and liquids. However, if you’re not happy with the color of your restoration after your teeth whitening, we will be happy to discuss replacing it with one that better suits your new shining smile.

Is Teeth Whitening Expensive?

Since most dental insurance policies don’t cover cosmetic treatments, many people worry that getting a brighter smile is an expensive endeavor. Thankfully, this largely isn’t the case! When compared to other cosmetic services like veneers and crowns, teeth whitening is very cost-effective. Additionally, we offer several options for making teeth whitening more affordable, like our in-office membership plan and CareCredit financing. During your initial consultation, our talented team will be happy to go over all your payment methods and show you just how affordable your new smile may be!
