Tooth stains are, perhaps, the most common cosmetic dental issue. Stains can result from food and beverage choices, tobacco use, oral health habits, and even the simple process of aging, which can make them unavoidable.
Fortunately, addressing stains is not at all difficult – and the simple process of stain removal can have a profound impact on the appearance of your smile.
Options for Tooth Whitening
At our Hoboken office, we offer two different teeth whitening options:
- Zoom! 2™ Teeth Whitening System. This in-office treatment can lighten teeth eight to ten shades in as little as one hour. Ideal for surface stains, this teeth whitening system produces fast, reliable, and consistently beautiful results. With this option, we also provide patients with take-home application trays and bleaching solution to help maintain results
- KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System. A take-home teeth whitening option, the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching™ System is formulated to lighten teeth up to 16 shades over the course of treatment. Utilizing customized application trays, this option gently lightens teeth while you sleep and is even effective on deep stains such as those caused by tetracycline
Topical treatments are incredibly effective at eliminating stains caused by foods, beverages, and lifestyle choices. When combined with enhanced daily care, topical whiteners can continue to produce results for several months. Simple maintenance treatments can help to keep results even longer.
Quick & Painless
Professional teeth whitening is faster, more effective, and more comfortable than store-bought alternatives. Many professional teeth whitening formulas contain ingredients designed to reduce tooth sensitivity while the customized application trays work to keep solution off of soft tissue, further helping to prevent irritation. What’s more, in-office treatments are professionally applied, again working to protect soft tissue, reduce tooth sensitivity, and optimize results with minimal discomfort.
If you find your teeth are sensitive following tooth whitening, temporary use of a toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth can help. We will discuss this, along with other maintenance tips, during your time in our care.
